New "DWTS" Cast Revealed

February 25, 2013

The season of sequined fringe is upon us.

The season 16 cast of “Dancing with the Stars” was announced today on “Good Morning America.” Yay?

Sorry. I’m sure the latest season of this weirdly fascinating cultural phenomenon will be just as entertaining as the last 15. I’m just feeling a little sad that one Chelsie Hightower isn’t involved in the proceedings this time around. Chelsie! We’ll miss you!

The happier news is that Aly Raisman, the awesome surprise hero of last year’s U.S. Olympic women’s gymnastics team, will be competing for the mirrorball trophy. And there are some newbie pros—including “So You Think You Can Dance” alum Lindsay Arnold—on the list who might spice things up a little. Real yay!

Here’s the lineup:

Wynonna Judd
and Tony Dovolani

D.L. Hughley
and Cheryl Burke

Jacoby Jones
and Karina Smirnoff

Lisa Vanderpump
and new dancer Gleb Savchenko

Andy Dick
and new dancer Sharna Burgess

Victor Ortiz
and new dancer Lindsay Arnold

Zendaya Coleman
and Val Chmerkovskiy

Aly Raisman
and Mark Ballas

Ingo Rademache
and Kym Johnson

Kellie Pickler
and Derek Hough

Dorothy Hamill
and Tristan MacManus

Tune in for the premiere of “DWTS” on March 28 at 8/7 central on ABC.
