"Dancing with the Stars [VIDEO]" Season 25 doesn't premiere until September 18, but there is already news about the milestone season. Singer Bobby Brown was scheduled to be a contestant on the ABC popular dance competition show. However, it was announced on Thursday, August 31st, that the "Every Little Step" singer has changed his mind and will not be on the show after all.

The reason for Brown's withdrawn is possibly contract issues. The claim is that he couldn't come to an agreement with ABC producers. The 48-year-old singer and actor concluded that it would not be worth it for him to be on the show. Now the producers will have to get another male contestant at the last minute.

Not the first time

Viewers who have been watching "Dancing With The Stars" for years will remember another time in the history of the show when a replacement had to be called in at the last minute. Of course, it was under different circumstances. In 2006, rapper and actor Romeo Miller was scheduled to appear in Season 2, but he suffered an injury before the very first show and was replaced by his father, Master P, who had no or little rehearsal time. The rapper and entrepreneur was partnered with Ashly DelGrosso, and they were fourth to be eliminated. Romeo appeared in Season 12 in 2011 and did much better than his father. He and Chelsie Hightower were eliminated one week before the semi-finals.

Known celebrities

A few Celebrities are known to be contestants so far, even though the official announcement will not be until September 6th on "Good Morning America." On Wednesday, August 30, Emma Slater announced that her partner is Drew Scott.

He is the twin brother of Jonathan Scott. They are stars of the hit HGTV series "Property Brothers." Unofficially, Nick Lachey and his wife Vanessa are partnered with newlyweds Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Pros returning

The professional dancers were announced on "Good Morning America" on August 24. Viewers were delighted to see that many of their favorites are returning, including Mark Ballas, who has been away for two seasons because he was starring in Broadway's "Jersey Boys."

The other male pro dancers returning include Artem Chigvintsev, Gleb Savchenko, Keo Motsepe, Maks Chmerkovskiy, Val Chmerkovskiy and Alan Bersten, who was newly promoted from being a troupe dancer.

The female pro dancers include Lindsay Arnold, Emma Slater, Sharna Burgess, Witney Carson, and Peta Murgatroyd. The last female has not been named. The rumor is that it will be Cheryl Burke.
