Dancing with the Stars returns Monday night

NOW: Dancing with the Stars returns Monday night

"Dancing with the Stars" returns for its 28th season Monday night with a new cast of 12 celebrities.

This season Bachelorette Hannah Brown, "Dawson's Creek" actor James Van Der Beek, and country singer Lauren Alaina are just some of the celebrities competing for the mirror ball trophy.

Supermodel Christie Brinkley was set to participate until a fall during rehearsals sidelined her.

Her daughter, Sailor Brinkley Cook, will be taking her place.

"I don't know if I can do this. I'm so scared and then I met with everyone from Dancing with the Stars and my partner and it was like I felt this high," Brinkley Cook said.

Athletes Lamar Odom and Ray Lewis are no strangers to competition.

"The last time I competed for a championship in LA I won," Odom said.

"What's interesting about dance and football is its all footwork," Lewis said.

Funnywoman Kate Flannery from 'The Office' is transferring her comedic talent to the dance floor.

"Dance involves timing, and comedy involves timing," Flannery said.

'Queer Eye' star Karamo Brown has won 3 Emmys, but can he win the judges votes?

"They can put me in anything, there's nothing I'd say no to," Brown said.

From the Supremes Mary Wilson to Fifth Harmony's Ally Brooke, these songbirds are trading the recording studio for the dance floor.

The common thread tying this cast together, their excitement over the infamous costumes.

"I am living for it," Hannah Brown said.

The wild card this year is former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

"I figured this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to do something way out of my comfort zone," Spicer said.

It's going to be a grueling twelve weeks for this new cast, but Carrie Ann, Bruno, and Len are back to judge the competition.
