Dancing With the Stars Season 14

Mark your calendars for Monday March 19th.  Dancing with the Stars is back for its 14th season, and I am excited.  Do I really have to wait two whole weeks!??  Sadly, yes.  But at least we now know who the cast is...

Gladys Knight!  Please tell me I don't have to explain who she is.  She is paired with Tristan McManus.  This is his Sophmore season.  I really like him.  He is patient and sweet and a good dancer.  Plus he is funny. 

Our resident jock...Donald Driver.  He may be a super star now, but he grew up homeless and had a number of other obstacles to overcome.  I am intrigued to see his story unfold.  The football players are usually surprisingly light on their feet.  Will he be?  His partner:  Petra Murgatroyd also in her Sophmore season.

Gavin this is one I do not know.  He is chart topper(no wonder I don't know who he is I never listen to the radio!) but can he dance?  His partner is last season's champion pro:  Karina Smirnoff

Swoon it's Jack Wagner!  Soap star and singer.   Is he a triple threat?  Maybe with Anna Trebunskya as his partner he will be.

Steve Urkel?  Did I say that?  I meant...Jaleel White!  He made that character a household name whether he meant to or not.  We all loved him too.  He is paired with Kym Johnson.  I think this is interesting as she is usually paired with the jocks.

Katherine Jenkins, "The Sexy Soprano."  And not from that show either.  She is a singer.  Again, I am out of the loop on this one.  I wonder if we will get a sampling of her music.  She is partnered with Mark Ballas.

Maria Menounos is an actress, author and host on Extra. I do believe she will have the male vote.  And the envy of the females...her partner:  Derek Hough.

Martina Navratilova...a tennis legend.  I am not a tennis follower so I will take their word for it.  Tennis is kind of like a dance.  It certainly is physical.  Her partner is Tony Dovolani. 

Melissa Gilbert.  Laura Ingalls is all growed up!  Remember when she pushed Nellie in the mud!?  I thought she was awesome.  I think she is sweet.  So her partner better be nice to her...Maks Chmerkovskiy. 

Roshon Fegan...the Disney kid.  ABC is owned by Disney so of course there will be one.  He might get some humble pie from his partner:  Chelsie Hightower.  She has been known to kick butt and take names.

From The View it's Sherry Shepherd!  She has been very hush hush about it.  I don't know how she didn't spill it.  I would have totally blown it.  She will be quite fun.  And her partner is Val Chmerkovskiy.

William Levy  "The Latin Hottie."  He has a list of credits that I can not spell or pronounce.  He will also have the female vote for sure.  But will his Latin blood line run true?  If not he has a fab teacher:  Cheryl Burke!

This is a great line up.  And I am really looking forward to it.

Pass. You know Gavin DeGraw. He sings that song, I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately... I know you've heard it before. It's annoying but catchy. He also sings the song Not Over You (something like that).
