ABC announces an all-star reunion for its DWTS 10th anniversary special
Maksim Chmerkovskiy, you’re needed back in the ballroom for a very special birthday party!
ABC announced the all-star lineup for its Dancing with the Stars 10th anniversary special planned for April 28. Chmerkovskiy and other fan favorites will return to perform in the episode that will reflect on the show’s last decade – and feature its largest opening number ever, with 46 stars.
Nine Mirrorball Trophy winners are scheduled to appear, including season 18 winners Meryl Davis and Chmerkovskiy, 35, and reigning champs Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson. Other performers include Chelsea Kane, Kristi Yamaguchi, Amy Purdy, Maria Menounos, Amber Riley, Melissa Rycroft and Kelly Monaco.
“Thankfully I’ve been very active in my pregnancy so far, so when I got the invitation to perform on the show it was too much of a wonderful opportunity to pass up,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Obviously we had to consider certain things with the choreography, but everyone is looking after me and she s getting a lot of attention! Even the wardrobe department have kindly offered to make me a sequin sparkly dress.”
Dancing with the Stars: 10th Anniversary Special will air April 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
