One week ago, "Dancing With The Stars" 2016 pro Emma Slater danced a paso doble with former Texas governor Rick Perry. Tonight --just six days after she and Perry were eliminated from Mirrorball Trophy contention-- she'll take a seat above the ballroom as the week four co-host of "DWTS All Access," the online-only program that runs concurrently with the live show and provides viewers with cast interviews and competition insights. Slater revealed the big news via Twitter just a few hours before the the series' first-ever Cirque du Soleil Night was slated to begin at 8 PM Eastern on ABC.

Emma Slater makes the big reveal

The official "DWTS All Access" Twitter page teased Slater's identity for several hours before the British beauty finally spilled the beans.

She tweeted "Stop being mean @DWTSAllAccess !! You KNOW it's me!!! can't wait to go-host, See you guys later!!!!!" Prior to Slater's reveal, both her name and that of frequent All Access co-host Kym Johnson Herjavec were floated as possibilities. Johnson last appeared on "Dancing with the Stars" as the co-host of the live Sept. 27 results show, when she stepped in for usual live show co-host Erin Andrews.

If tweets from a number of the "Dancing with the Stars" 2016 celebrity contestants are any indication of what's to come, tonight's edition of "DWTS All Access" will be a hotbed of activity. In the hours leading up to the broadcast, Olympian Laurie Hernandez, model Amber Rose, and "DWTS" pro Sharna Burgess all tweeted to ask fans to submit questions, and revealed the times that they'll join Emma Slater and Dominic Bowden in the All Access booth, with Hernandez set to chat at 8:31 PM Eastern, Rose assigned to 9:13 PM, and Burgess --who performs with IndyCar driver and fan-favorite James Hinchcliffe-- ready to roll at 8:17 PM.
