Sherri Shepherd, Jaleel White and Gladys Knight will join the cast ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. Season 14 of the dance show is promising a mixed bag of surprises.
Here are the 12 new “celebrities” and their professional partners, who will don the Danskins come March 19.
Jaleel White, actor. (Partner is Kym Johnson). He’s appeared in shows like Grown Ups and Step by Step, but you know him best as Urkel from Family Matters.
Gavin DeGraw, singer-songwriter. (Partner is Karina Smirnoff). He’s the crooner behind such songs as “Not Over You,” “In Love With a Girl,” and the theme song from One Tree Hill.
Jack Wagner, actor. (Partner is Anna Trebunskaya). He’s either recognizable as a costar on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful or the ex-beau of Heather Locklear.
William Levy, telenovela hottie. (Partner is Cheryl Burke). A Cuban-American actor and former model who’s big on the Mexican soap circuit.
Donald Driver, wide receiver. (Partner is Peta Murgatroyd). He plays for the Green Bay Packers and is looking to follow in the footsteps of season 12 winner Hines Ward.
Katherine Jenkins, opera singer. (Partner is Mark Ballas). The Welsh mezzo-soprano actually crooned in the ballroom last April.
Sherri Shepherd, talk show host. (Partner is Val Chmerkovskiy). She’ll juggle her dance floor duties with her gig on The View.
Melissa Gilbert, actor. (Partner is Maksim Chmerkovskiy). She’s done a ton of TV since Little House on the Prairie but she’ll be forever known as Half Pint.
Roshon Fegan, actor. (Partner is Chelsie Hightower). You won’t recognize him unless you Tivo Disney Channel’s Shake It Up 20 times a day.
Maria Menounos, TV anchor. (Partner is Derek Hough). Extra! Extra! Guess who ET and Access Hollywood won’t be interviewing after every show?
Martina Navratilova, tennis great. (Partner is Tony Dovolani). A Grand Slam just doesn’t compare to winning a mirror-ball trophy, apparently.
Gladys Knight, singer. (Partner is Tristan McManus). She had the moves with the Pips. Why shouldn’t the empress of soul try to conquer DWTS?
