Last night ABC announced the next 13 contestants for their hit show Dancing with the Stars and on the list is none other than 17 year old Olympic gymnast, Shawn Johnson. Shawn is the youngest competitor to appear on the show and I wonder if she has the personality and dance ability to pull it off.
For more on the announcement:
- Shawn confirms her Dancing with the Stars appearance on her own site
- Gymnastics Coaching has a few words about her appearance and others (would Alicia have been a better choice – I tend to think Alicia or Nastia could rock on the show)
- International Gymnast has a complete write up and competitor list for Season 8.
- The official Dancing with the Stars announcement with competitor bios at ABC
I’m sure behind the scenes photos and video will start showing up soon so stay tuned! “Dancing With The Stars 8? premieres March 9 from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on ABC, and will run through May.
