'Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars' 'fun' couple - Joey Fatone, Kym Johnson
Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson are excited to be dance partners again, for the upcoming season of "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars."
"We're going to bring the fun to the dance floor, without a doubt," Johnson told OTRC.com's Rachel Smith.
"People are so serious," Fatone added.
Fatone, 35, and Johnson, 36, were partners on season 4 of the hit dancing competition in 2007. The pair went home in second place, losing to Olympic athlete Apolo Ohno, who will also be competing in the all-star season.
"I think everybody is going to be tough competition because I mean look, some of them have won, some of them first place, second place, some of them fan favorites," said Fatone, who rose to fame as a member of the popular 1990s boy band 'N Sync, said.
The partners are reuniting for the 15th season of the hit reality competition, and explain how their chemistry is already giving them an advantage over their competition.
"It's going to be fun because we don't have to really get over the whole 'Hey, nice to meet you' kind of thing, like some of the other contestants are doing," Fatone said.
"We were strangers in season 4. We did really well - we got second and we've remained friends this whole time," Johnson added.
The full cast of the all-star season was announced on July 27, and includes a number of favorites such as Bristol Palin, Kirstie Alley, Kelly Monaco, Pamela Anderson, Apolo Ohno, Shawn Johnson, Melissa Rycroft and more (See full list with partners).
There was a public vote to see whether former contestant Kyle Massey (season 11, runner-up), Sabrina Bryan (season 5, eliminated in week six) or Carson Kressley (season 13, eliminated in week 5) would return as the fan favorite. Bryan recently won the competition, and is set to partner with Louis Van Amstel.
The new season is set to premiere on Monday, September 24 at 8 p.m. ET. Check out sneak peek videos of the "Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars" couples showing off some sexy dance moves.
