Okay, so it's that time of year again. Dancing With The Stars just announced the new line up for the Spring 2012 season. Scheduled to premier on March 19, 2012. And the Contestants are: Donald Driver (Green Bay Packer) - Partner Peta Murgatroyd Gavin DeGraw (Popstar) - Partner Karina Smirnoff Gladys Knight (Singer) - Partner Tristan MacManus Jack Wagner (Soap Star) - Partner Anna Trebunskaya Jaleel White (Actor) - Kym Johnson Katherine Jenkins (Soprano's) - Mark Ballas Maria Menounos (Hollywood's Hottest Host) - Partner Derek Hough Martina Navratilova (Tennis) - Partner Tony Dovolani Melissa Gilbert (Little House Legend) - Maksim Chmerkovskiy Roshon Fegan (Disney Star) - Partner Chelsie Hightower Sherri Shepheard (The View) - Partner Val Chmerkovskiy All I can say is Wow!!! This should be an interesting season. I am really excited to see how Jaleel (Best know as Steve Urkel from Family Matters) does. I wonder if he is going to dress up as steve Urkel for any of his dances. Because that would be completely hilarious. So, who are some of your favorites right from the start??? Why???

It is funner to watch if you know the people. But I get tired of the winners being voted for because of who they are, not how well they danced. I haven't been watching the last few, but this one I know some of htem and they are a good cast. Well, make the list shorter..the ones I know and will enjoy watching are Gladys Knight - love her music Jack Wagner - hot hunky soap actor...Frisco Jones! Jaleel White (Steve Erkel, remember?!) Melissa Gilbert - nice to see her back! Sherri Shepard - loved her in Less than Perfect..she is a hoot!!! Never heard of the others. But it is always interesting to watch the huge, hunky sport guys do all these intrigat, sensefive, light stepping dances!

I agree with you. DWTS is always a lot funner if you know most of the people on the show. I also don't like the fact that most seasons it comes down to being a popularity contest. Which is one of the reasons that I haven't watched the show the past couple of seasons. It seems we know the same people, but I imagine those people are going to be known by a lot of people. I can't wait to start watching.

Good show. I've just started watching it because I got bored with some of the other shows I've been watching. Now I'm hooked on Dancing With The Stars. I like most of the contestants and seeing some stars that I missed and how they have changed in appearance. Martina Navratilova-I was surprised seeing her dance-and she looks younger than ever. Donald Driver is a suave dancer and I like too Maksim Chmerkovsky Roshon-she's really a talented dancer.

The only celebrity contestant I am interested in is Maria Menounos; all the others I either haven't heard of or I'm just not that interested in watching them compete. The only other interest I have in the show is to see the co-host and former winner Brooke Burke. I may watch part of the second hour of the first episode tonight but there are other things on at the same time that will keep me from watching the first hour.
