Another Backstreet Boy has been cast on Dancing with the Stars.

Good Morning America announced Thursday that AJ McLean will join the show in its 29th season. He joins Kaitlyn Bristowe, who already revealed that she will be in the ballroom when the hoofing resumes Sept. 14 on ABC.

McLean follows in the foot dance steps of fellow Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter, who competed in season 21. He and his partner Sharna Burgess finished in second place.

"I've been dancing since I've been about 6 years old but this is going to be a little bit different," McLean told GMA. "There's definitely no foxtrot in the past 27 years."
