The pros for the upcoming season of "Dancing With the Stars" have been revealed. The reigning champ won't be back, but his brother will. So will five-time champion Derek Hough and two-time winner Cheryl Burke, not to mention a few fresh faces. 12 pros were revealed yesterday on "Good Morning America" in anticipation of the 19th season premiere of DWTS on September 15th. Besides Derek and Cheryl, the returning pros will be Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Karina Smirnoff, Mark Ballas, Tony Dovolani, Emma Slater, Peta Murgatroyd and Witney Carson. The new pros are Artem Chigvintsev, the winner of the U.K. version, who joined the DWTS troupe last season, Allison Holker, an Emmy-nominated choreographer, and Keoikantse Motsepe, a dancer from South Africa. ABC will announce the 12 new celebrity dancers on September 4th on GMA.
