Dancing With the Stars Season 21 Fall 2015 Complete Cast Revealed
The time has come for the complete cast of Dancing With the Stars Season 21 to be revealed – no more waiting and no more teasing. The hit reality series will once again be hosted by Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews and the judges will be two-time Mirrorball champ and actress Julianne Hough, and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba. Len Goodman has officially retired – but there is no word of a replacement as of yet. Will there be guest judges this season in his place or will it go back to a three seated judging panel?? In addition to a three judging panel, Dancing With the Stars is returning to a two night format, only extending the results show from the one hour they had in years past, to two hours (just when you thought it wasn’t possible to drag out the show any longer – they extend the results show to two hours).

VICTOR ESPINOZA After coming close twice, jockey Victor Espinoza earned the famous Triple Crown earlier this year, winning the Kentucky Derby, The Preakness and The Belmont Stakes aboard speedy American Pharoah. It was the first time in 37 years the feat had been accomplished. The first Hispanic jockey to ever win the Triple Crown, Espinoza has won over 3000 races in his career and donates 10% of his weekly winnings to The City of Hope for childhood cancer research.
ANDY GRAMMER With his 2011 self-titled debut album, pop singer Andy Grammer became the first male pop star in a decade to reach the Top 10 at Adult Pop Radio on his first two singles, “Keep Your Head Up” and “Fine By Me,” certified platinum and gold respectively. Andy’s second album, 2014’s critically acclaimed Magazines or Novels, continues his disarming success with his huge hit “Honey, I’m Good.”
