Carole Baskin may have killed her ex-husband, but now she’ll have the opportunity to kill it on the dance floor.

She, along with Nelly and several other celebrities have been announced as contestants for the next season of ‘Dancing with the Stars.’

Announced on Wednesday, the rest of the lineup includes “Backstreet Boys” member AJ McLean, Netflix’s “Cheer” head coach Monica Aldama, “Bachelorette” star Kaitlyn Bristowe, Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir, Super Bowl champion Vernon Davis, Disney Channel star Skai Jackson, “Catfish” host Nev Schulman, NBA player Charles Oakley, actress Anne Heche, “The Real” host Jeannie Mai, and “Selling Sunset” real estate agent Chrishell Stause.

This season’s professional dancers include Brandon Armstrong, Alan Bersten, Sharna Burgess, Cheryl Burke, Artem Chigvintsev, Val Chmerkovskiy, Sasha Farber, Jenna Johnson, Daniella Karagach, Keo Motsepe, Peta Murgatroyd, Pasha Pashkov, Gleb Savchenko, Emma Slater and Britt Stewart. The celebrity and dancer pairings will be revealed in the premiere episode.

Supermodel and businesswoman Tyra Banks will host the upcoming season, after longtime host Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews announced their exits from the series in July.

Last season’s cast sparked some controversy with the inclusion of former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. He made it decently far into the show, eventually being eliminated in the sixth week. Former “Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown took home the Mirror Ball trophy, setting the bar high for fellow alum Bristowe. Weir also follows in the footsteps of Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon, who took home the grand prize in season 26.

‘Dancing with the Stars’ premieres Monday, Sept. 14, at 8pm on ABC.
