Dancing with the Stars, New Cast Announced

The eighth season of Dancing with the Stars premieres in March, but the new cast was announced today.

For your consideration: Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson, country singer Chuck Wicks, model/actor Gilles Marini, Denise Richards, Apple mogul Steve Wozniak (will he bring his Segway?), 80s pop star Belinda Carlisle, rodeo star Ty Murray (who might surprise you), singer Jewel, comedian David Alan Grier, rapper Lil Kim, Lawrence Taylor (token football player who always seems to make it to the final few), Jackass star Steve-O, and Access Hollywood correspondent Nancy O’Dell.

All in all a pretty well-rounded list, which is part of the magic of DWTS. It has a little something for everyone in the first few weeks.

Dancing With The Stars returns March 9 on ABC.

  1. I thought I had heard that Julianne Hough wasn’t going to be on the show this season, but I’ve now heard she will be partnered with boyfriend Chuck Wicks. Interesting change of plans.

    Also interesting will be husband and wife contestants Ty Murray and Jewell on the same season.

    Looking forward to March 9th.
