Dancing With The Stars: Get ready for premiere Monday night

Dancing With The Stars has another exciting season of dancing - plus some awesome entertainers - planned for its 18th season, which kicks off Monday night. Get yourself Twitter-ready by boning up on this season's cast!

The two-hour season premiere of DWTS starts at 8 p.m. Monday.

Fun fact: This season, the competition features a new game-changing twist called "The Switch-Up." Viewers will be given the power to vote and change celebrities and professional dance pairings. The new rule will affect all dancing couples, and they will be forced to switch partners at some point during the season.

Get a handle on the competitors by following them on Twitter before the premiere and find out more about each competitor in their bios on ABC's site. Plus, don't forget to follow WCPO!
