The line-up for the next Dancing with the Stars has been announced and it has Irish Dancer Tristan MacManus and popular TV personality Nancy Grace putting on their dancing shoes in sync.

The couple is one of 12-big named celebrities announced by ABC set to compete for first place for the dancing competition. Among them will be David Arquette, Ricky Lake and Ron Artest.
The DWTSgossip twitter account posted:

“Congrats to @PetaMurgatroyd and Tristan on joining #DWTS13 as pros. Does Tristan have a twitter acc?”

Newcomer Tristan was introduced to the show in season 12 but will join the new season as a pro. He has been in the dancing business for years and had his start in his hometown of Dublin. He began competing around Europe and began winning a number of different competitions in every level.

He has since toured around the U.K. and the U.S. with different dancing groups gaining experience and building a strong reputation. He has worked in shows like “Aladdin” and “Oliver!” as well as appeared in the movie “Ella Enchanted.”

It is up to Tristan to whip his loud mouth partner into shape, so that she can gracefully float across the stage.

The celebrities will take the stage on September 19th as they head into the show’s season 13 on ABC.

Will the Irish dancer take the trophy home?
