Recently eliminated pro Tony Dovolani was on hand to share the results with viewers on the morning talk show. If fans were expecting major surprises, the switches definitely fell within party lines.
It's an open secret that DWTS has two major factions — the Derek Hough crew and the Dance With Me crew. Dance With Me is a ballroom studio franchise owned by three DWTS pros: Dovolani, Maks Chmerkovskiy and Val Chmerkovskiy. The switches resulted in celebs staying all in the family.
Hough wound up getting Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson, whose original partner was Mark Ballas, his best friend outside of the show. Ballas will be paired with YouTube personality Bethany Mota, who is Hough's original celebrity.
On the DWM side, Chmerkovskiy and Artem Chigvintsev swapped partners. Chmerkovskiy has Lea Thompson and Chigvintsev is paired with Pretty Little Liars actress Janel Parrish.
These pairings shouldn't surprise viewers since most fans support one camp or the other. They rarely cross party lines when it comes to the longtime dance pros. While the big switch is for one week only, it's clear that no one wants to give a leg up to anyone of the opposite team.
What DWTS fans should be excited about is the fact that there will be some great dancing next week. The dance competition show revealed that there would be some fresh and exciting dances in the mix, including the jitterbug, Bollywood, burlesque and disco.
The celebrity guest judge will be "Bang Bang" singer Jessie J.
Here are the new partnerships:
