As the cast of Dancing With the Stars braced themselves for tonight's dreaded “switch up” episode, they made their way to the studio for a last-minute practice on Sunday.

Every star will dance with a new partner this week then return to his/her original pair next Monday.

NeNe Leakes and Danice McKellar were in high spirits as they existed their cars en route to rehearsals. Although DWTS has kept the details of tonight's show under wraps, Twitter is abuzz with rumors about the new partnerships. NeNe will reportedly dance a jazz routine with Derek Hough, who was having an intense phone conversation on his way to rehearsals yesterday.

Derek's social media haters hope the new pairing will hinder his chances of winning this year. However, his sister and former DWTS pro Julianne Hough will guest judge so she may vote in his favor.

Meanwhile, the Chmerkovskiy brothers will likely swap partners. Danica and Maks could be dancing the jive. That means Val will be paired with Meryl Davis.

All of the couples will dance a new style and no two will perform the same type of dance.

More like dancing with the D-listers! Sorry ABC...

The season 18 cast of Dancing With The Stars has been released, and aside from Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes, there aren't that many recognizable (or interesting) celebs signed up this season. It was reported that Bruce Jenner was supposed to join the show, but much to our disappointment he backed out at the last minute.

The cast was officially announced on Good Morning America on Tuesday, and we already knew Erin Andrews was replacing Brooke Burke as the host, but there will be new rules this year! Dance pro Derek Hough told GMA, "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."

So who's on the show besides Nene, who is paired with Tony Dovolani? There are two Olympic figure skaters (Meryl Davis, who is dancing with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and Charlie White, who is paired with Sharna Burgess) and a handful of actors. Former Full House star Candace Cameron Bure will be dancing with Mark Ballas, The Wonder Years alum Danica McKellar is with Val Chmerkovskiy, Billy Dee Williams is with Emma Slater and Drew Carey is with Cheryl Burke. Former hockey player Sean Avery is with Karina Smirnoff, long-distance swim champ Diana Nyad is with Henry Byalikov and double-amputee pro snowboarder Amy Purdy is with Derek Hough. Big Time Rush singer James Maslow is teaming up with Peta Murgatroyd and last, but not least, Australian pop singer Cody Simpson is with Witney Carson.

Dancing with the Stars premieres Monday, March 17 at 8pm on ABC.

Dancing with the Stars has kicked off its 17th season -- and it's time to party down! After Monday night's high energy, two-hour premiere, Snooki was spotted jetting off at LAX while the rest of her cast mates celebrated at an after party Hooray Henry's in Hollywood.

Wearing a newsies hat and black pants, Snooki, who came in fourth overall with a score of 23 out of 30, arrived at the Los Angeles airport with her fiance Jionni LaValle after the taping of the show. Meanwhile, celebs Leah Remini and Jack Osbourne hobnobbed with pro partners Cheryl Burke, Tony Dovalani, Kym Johnson at the show's swanky after party.

Earlier that night, the stars foxtrotted and cha cha'd their way into our hearts. Amber Riley was the leader of the pack with a score of 27. Corbin Bleu and Elizabeth Berkley tied in second place, with a score of 24. However not everyone proved they could bust a move -- Bill Nye (the Science Guy) was at the bottom of the board with a 14.

Looks like fun! Reality star Snooki showed off her silly side after a Sunday rehearsal for the upcoming premiere of Dancing with the Stars. The mom of one has been hitting the dance floor hard in preparation for tonight's DWTS season 17 premiere.

Leah Remini And Jack Osbourne Spotted At First Day Of Dancing With The Stars Rehearsals

Just one day after the announcing the cast of season 17 of Dancing with the Stars, former King of Queens star Leah Remini, reality star Jack Osbourne and more were spotted at a Los Angeles dance studio for the first day of rehearsals on Thursday. And despite the sad news released today that wife Lisa suffered a late-term miscarriage last week, Osbourne stayed strong and showed up ready to dance. We can't imagine what he is dealing with but we hope that hitting the floor comes as a distraction to the grieving dad.

Remini was captured entering the studio all decked out wearing a black dress and red heel, while Osbourne made his dad proud by wearing a Black Sabbath cap. The stars look nice and neat now -- but in a few weeks times we bet they will be scruffy in sweats!

Former NFL wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson, comedian Bill Engvall and former Saved by the Bell actress Elizabeth Berkley were also photographed at the studio, readying themselves to get their dance on.

We know DWTS requires hours of strenuous rehearsals -- and we can't wait to see who can really bust a move!
