Tonight (Thursday 7/14) we find out who are All Stars are.
Today Nigel confirmed the leak that Chelsie Hightower from season 4 and Dancing With the Stars will be returning as an all-star. Chelsie did tweet though that due to her DWTS contract it will only be for one week. Personally, I don't mind at all as Chelsie is my favorite girl ever on this show (her partner Mark is also my favorite boy).
I'm speculating on several people who I think will or won't be back. They are:
Alex - Nigel hinted that Alex would be back in some capacity this year. If he isn't back as an All Star immediately, I think we'll see him at some point. I don't know if his leg is strong enough to support him every week though.
Robert - I don't know if they'll pull in 2 guys from last season, but Robert has been assisting Travis and Sonya, so I wouldn't be surprised.
Mark - He's back in LA after I think being in Japan or Australia with GaGa's tour yesterday, he may be available now.
Kathryn - I have a feeling her new role as the lead in Step Up 4 may prevent her from being back, but if production doesn't start for a few weeks we could still see her
Brandon - He's been appearing in some SYTYCD promotional stuff recently, so I wouldn't be surprised to see him back
Legacy - Same as Brandon, and Legacy is a fan favorite
Ashley & Ryan - She's been retweeting a lot of fan's tweets who want her back, so I'm curious
I'm not sure on the others, that's just my speculation. I'm excited for tonight's episode (minus the Nicole Sherszinger (sp) performance)
