'Dancing With the Stars' season 18 kicks off tonight

LOS ANGELES, CA

Leakes is one of 12 stars who'll be strutting their stuff in tonight's premiere. Other stars include McKellar, who played Winnie on "The Wonder Years," Billy Dee Williams, Candace Cameron Bure, Drew Carey, Cody Simpson and Olympic ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White.

They'll start by dancing either the Cha Cha, Foxtrot or a Contemporary routine. In a new twist, fans will be able to switch partners for the celebrities. Jason Derulo will open the show with a song backed by the pro dancers.
