Dancing with the Stars is back for Season 26. It’s a special four-week DWTS season featuring 10 professional celebrity athletes including controversial ice skater Tonya Harding, NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and MLB World Series champ Johnny Damon, among others. Each week the athletes will perform with their professional dance partners in front of ballroom experts and DWTS judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. And every week, viewers at home will be able to vote during the show’s live broadcast in the EDT/CDT time zones.
For his first performance, 7’2″ tall, 71-year-old Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and his 5’6″ tall, 24-year-old dance partner Lindsay Arnold will do a Cha Cha to the Stevie Wonder song “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours).” Keep in mind, Lindsay won Season 25 with Hamilton Broadway star Jordan Fisher! Dancing with the Stars: Athletes airs Mondays at 8pm on ABC.
