Did the Dancing with the Stars dance floor just get bigger? Nope, the competition just got smaller! The newest stars to take the floor are pint-sized because ABC's newest spin-off is Dancing with the Stars: Juniors. Fans can expect the competition this year to be as fierce as it is adorable. The show will be hosted by previous Dancing with the Stars contestants Frankie Muniz and Jordan Fisher, with Dancing with the Stars: All Athletes winner Adam Rippon and Dancing with the Stars pro Val Chmerkovskiy serving as judges.
But what about the actual competitors? On the entertainment industry side of things we've got Miles Brown from black-ish; Ariana Greenblatt from Avengers: Infinity War; Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo from Toddlers and Tiaras; Mackenzie Ziegler from Total Eclipse; Jason Maybaum from Raven's Home; and Hudson West from General Hospital. There's also a fair share of "famous by association" contestants like Mandla Morris, who is Stevie Wonder's son; Sophia Pippin, Scottie Pippin's daughter; and Tripp Palin, Sarah Palin's grandson.
As for the "miscellaneous" celebs, there's Addison Osta Smith, who was the first girl and youngest contestant ever to win MasterChef Junior; Akash Vukoti, the youngest ever winner of the National Spelling Bee; and Sky Brown is known as a skateboarding and surfing phenom!
