Start spreading the news!!!!
This is really happening!!!
Move over, Olympics! This is the competition America wants to see!
The word is out and the official cast list for the 15th season of ABC's Dancing With the Stars has finally been released! What makes this season sooooo super-duper is that for the first time, previous contestants have been asked back for an All-Star round!
So, maybe some of them didn't nab the Mirror Ball trophy before — but they just might tango away with it now!!!
Kicking off the line-up are former champs 98 Degrees member Drew Lachey (Season 2), former Dallas Cowboy star Emmitt Smith (Season 3), Brazilian race car driver Helio Castroneves (Season 5) and soap star Kelly Monaco (Season 1).
Since the Olympics are on everyone's brain, former "DWTS" winners Apolo Ohno (Season 4) and Shawn Johnson (Season 8) will also be coming back for more waltzing and lifts.
But probably the biggest names to rejoin the dancing fold are also some of the most controversial. Pamela Anderson (Season 10), Bristol Palin (Season 11), and Kirstie Alley (Season 12) are rounding out the line-up, along with French actor and finalist Gilles Marini (Season 8), TV personality Melissa Rycroft (Season 8) and former 'N Sync singer Joey Fatone (Season 4)
Now, here is the fun part! There is one slot left on this dance card and U, the loyal viewers, get to VOTE on who will fill it. America, in an online vote, will get the chance to choose the final contestant to strut in the new season. The candidates are: Fashion commentator Carson Kressley (Season 13), singer Sabrina Bryan (Season 5)and Disney Channel star Kyle Massey (Season 11).
Hmm! We know who we want back… but we won't try to "cheetah" and sway you to vote our way! ;)
This looks pretty spiff to us! Who will U be rooting for this season?
