Tricky, tricky, Dancing With the Stars! Fans were aghast when the Season 19 pro lineup was announced and fan-fave pro Sharna Burgess apparently didn't make the cut, but now that head skratcher is explained: Sharna is part of the pro lineup as the 13th pro. It turns out there's an extra star this season!


ABC and Sharna announced the good news on Instagram with a cute video featuring none other than Sharna herself.

"Hi my loves," Sharna begins the video, while standing outside of a trailer. "I can finally tell you I am the thirteenth pro on Dancing With the Stars Season 19 and I'm so excited." Then she turns to the trailer and starts waving the camera towards her. "Come this way, because my partner's right behind this door and and I want you to meet him." Then she slams the door. "Kidding! You have to tune in on September 4th to GMA. Love you all."

And we love you, Sharna. Given that the pro said she can "finally" announce the news, and never seemed upset about not making the original 12, we're thinking Dancing With the Stars had this trick up their sleeve the whole time, and Sharna was in on it. We couldn't understand why they'd leave Sharna out after she became so popular over the last few seasons, but if they knew they were bringing her back as a fun surprise the whole time, it all makes sense.

Are you as happy as we are to find out Sharna is back? Sound off in the comments below!
