The new “Dancing With the Stars” contestants have been paired up with their professional partners.
Notable among the pros is the return of Dmitry Chaplin, who last appeared on the show in Season 9, when he was paired up with singer Mya and made it all the way to the finals (they finished second to Donny Osmond and his partner, Kym Johnson). Chaplin is stepping in for Derek Hough, who’s taking this season off to film the movie “Cobu 3D.”
