'Dancing With The Stars' All Star Edition Confirmed

Dancing With The Stars” may be coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean fans don’t have anything to look forward to.

An All-star edition of the ABC dancing hit series is official. And the internet is exploding opinions of which 12 dancers should return for the epic dance-off. 

Some of the “DWTS” stars are even weighing in with their opinions.

“I think I definitely had one of the best stars in [J.R. Martinez],” dancer Karina Smirnoff told Hollyscoop at the 102.7 Kiis FM's Wango Tango. “But other than JR … Jason Taylor. Gilles Marini … Evan Lysacek. I don't know. There are a lot of great guys.”

Another name that kept popping up at the event around the topic of the All-star show was Mario Lopez

Understandable? Maybe. Ironic? Definitely, as Lopez was the one to accidently let the news out about an All-star season to begin with.

The slipup came while Lopez was serving as a guest co-host on “Live! With Kelly.”

“You know what, Kelly? They’re doing ‘Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars next season,” Lopez said. “They called me to do it.” Doh!

Ariana Grande is definitely considering a comeback for an All-Star showdown… That is, if it works with her schedule.

“Maybe. Maybe not. I don't know,” Grande told Hollyscoop about the possibility of returning. “I would love to, I think it would be a great opportunity. I know I'd be burnt out though. Because it's a lot of work.”

The All-Star season of “DWTS” will premiere in the fall for the show’s 15th season. The season 14 finale of “DWTS” airs next week on May 21 at 8/7 c.
