Reading Time: 2 minutes
Dancing with the Stars returns on Tuesday night for the Season 32 premiere, and the show has revealed the lineup for the first episode. That includes which dances each of the celebrity-pro pairs will be performing.
Dancing with the Stars Reveals Premiere Lineup
The first pair in the lineup is Alyson Hannigan and her partner Sasha Farber, dancing the Salsa to “Never Gonna Not Dance Again” by Pink. Next up is Mira Sorvino and Gleb Savchenko, dancing the Cha Cha to “Kiss” by Prince & the Revolution. Also dancing the Cha Cha is Xochitl Gomez and Val Chmerkovskiy, to “Peanut Butter Jelly” by Galantis.
Then three pairs will take on the Tango — Jamie Lynn Spears and Alan Bersten (to “Don’t Call Me Up” by Mabel), Lele Pons and Brandon Armstrong (to “El Tango de Roxanne” from Moulin Rouge!), and Charity Lawson and Artem Chigvintsev (to “Only Girl in the World” by Rihanna).
Matt Walsh and Koko Iwasaki will dance the Cha Cha to “Poison” by Bell Biv DeVoe. Also taking on the Cha Cha is Jason Mraz and Daniella Karagach, to “I Feel Like Dancing” by Mraz himself. Tyson Beckford and Jenna Johnson are also dancing the Cha Cha, to “Never Too Much” by Luther Vandross.
Adrian Peterson and Britt Stewart are dancing the Salsa to “Yeah!” by Usher, followed by another Cha Cha from Harry Jowsey and Rylee Arnold, to “Rock Your Body” by Justin Timberlake. Barry Williams and Peta Murgatroyd will be dancing the Foxtrot to “It’s a Sunshine Day” from The Brady Bunch.
Mauricio Umansky and Emma Slater will be dancing the Jive to “I Ain’t Worried” by OneRepublic, while Ariana Madix and Pasha Pashkov will take on the Salsa, set to “Love Myself” by Hailee Steinfeld.
The Show Will Premiere As Planned
There was some controversy earlier this month when it was revealed that DWTS was a WGA-covered show. Contestant Matt Walsh, who is a WGA member, announced he was pausing his involvement in the season until the writers’ strike was resolved.
ABC was reportedly considering a delay in premiering the new season. However, since the WGA has reached a tentative deal to end the strike, the show will be moving forward as planned. Season 32 will premiere on Tuesday, September 26, and Walsh will be competing.
Tune in on either ABC or Disney+ on Tuesday night at 8/7c to see this season’s celebrities hit the ballroom.
