'Dancing With the Stars' season 28 celeb-pro pairings revealed during premiere night

Dancing With the Stars is back, and the partnerships are finally in!

Now, we finally have the official list of season 28 partners, and we're happy to report that many of the fan guesses were spot-on. Take a look:

That leaves pros Keo Mostepe and Daniella Karagach without partners, and therefore unqualified to take home a mirrorball trophy this season. 

During the dance competition show's panel at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, last month, executive producer Andrew Llinares revealed that, at the time, he was the only one who knew the celeb-pro pairings.

"Well, we wanted to do something a little different this year… We want to keep it fresh for you guys," he said. "No one knows their partner but they’ll find out within the next few days because they start training soon."

"I know [the pairings]," he added, "but we'll reveal it on premiere nightEveryone keeps coming up to me trying to trick me."
