Jeannie is hitting the dance floor for Season 29 of “Dancing with the Stars”!

Wednesday on “Good Morning America,” ABC announced that our very own co-host is joining the celebrity cast of the reality competition series, which will premiere live on Monday, September 14, at 8:00 p.m. EDT.

Among those competing against Jeannie include “Cheer” star Monica Aldama, "Tiger King's" Carole Baskin, former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, Super Bowl Champion Vernon Davis, “One Day at a Time” star Justina Machado, Backstreet Boys singer AJ McLean, TV and film actor Jesse Metcalfe, rapper Nelly, “Catfish” host Nev Schulman, former NBA player Charles Oakley, actress/realtor Chrishell Stause, and Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir.

Of course, our girl Jeannie is no stranger to busting a move on camera.

Ch-ch-check out some of her killer dance moves from “The Real,” below:

The new season of “DWTS” is also making history by featuring its first-ever Black female (and solo!) host, Tyra Banks, as well as its first Black female pro, Britt Stewart.

The other professional dancers who will tango with the celebs include Brandon Armstrong, Alan Bersten, Sharna Burgess, Cheryl Burke, Artem Chigvintsev, Val Chmerkovskiy, Sasha Farber, Jenna Johnson, Daniella Karagach, Keo Motsepe, Peta Murgatroyd, Pasha Pashkov, Gleb Savchenko and Emma Slater.

Viewers will have to tune in to the premiere to find out which pro is paired with which celeb.

Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli are returning as judges.

In July, it was announced that Banks would be replacing Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews as host of the popular dance program.

The “America’s Next Top Model” creator is also serving as executive producer alongside showrunner Andrew Llinares.

“I’ve been a fan of ‘DWTS’ since its beginning,” Banks said in a statement at the time. “The fun mixed with raw emotion, seeing celebrities push past their comfort zones, the sizzling dance performances... it’s always transported me to my days of turning it up 10 notches on the catwalk.”

In an interview with “Good Morning America,” the supermodel hinted that the show will undergo some major changes.

“Okay, let’s just keep this real: It is going to be so next level,” she told the morning show. “We’re doing all this crazy stuff, taking it into the next level, but still keeping the stuff that we know America loves. But you need to get ready, because it’s going to be different.”

Best of luck to our beloved Jeannie! You got this, girl!
