This season’s dynamic lineup of stars -- including two Olympic Gold Medalists, a game show host, a swimming legend and a teen pop star -- will perform for the first time on live national television with their professional partners during the two-hour season premiere of “Dancing with the Stars,” MONDAY, MARCH 17 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. In a first for “Dancing with the Stars,” the competition will feature a new game-changing twist called “The Switch Up.” This season, America will be given the power to vote and change celebrities and professional dance pairings. This new rule will affect all couples as they will be required to switch partners at a point in the season. Never before have dance partnerships been split up during the course of competition.
