‘Dancing with the Stars’ official partner pics released (Photos)

Lacey Schwimmer and Chaz Bono

Last week ABC’s hit reality show ‘Dancing with the Stars’ released cast photos of just the stars, but they did not revealed the official photos with the celebrities matched up with their professional dance partners.

Now the press photos for the dance pairs have been released along with interviews from the couples and we get to have our first look at what the pairs are going to look like together.

Most of the celebrities this year barely have any previous dance experience, which is nice for a change instead of seeing someone like Nicole Scherzinger who dances for a living with the ‘pussycat dolls’ on a show with a bunch of celebrities who have never danced professionally in their lives.

With the controversy surrounding Chaz Bono being paired with a female dancer and upsetting ‘Dancing with the Stars’ fans it’s leaving people wondering if the show is going to be in a bit of trouble when it comes to ratings.  Really when it comes to a reality show, any controversy surrounding it usually jacks up the ratings, look at what happened to ‘Jersey Shore’ after Snooki got hit in the face by a man – ratings soared and now those kids are all millionaires.

‘Dancing with the Stars’ will premiere on Monday September 19 at 8:00 p.m. on ABC, followed by the first results show on September 20 at 9:00 p.m

Will you be tuning in for the premiere?  Who are you rooting to win the mirror ball trophy this year?  Leave us a comment and tell us who your favorite is.
