ABC has finally revealed the official list of contestants for Dancing with the Stars this morning. Some names on the list were not surprising to see as insider news have leaked to the Internet in the past couple of weeks. One challenge for the show was to come up with a good line up that could stand strong against its previous seasons. After featuring Mr. Entertainment, Joey Fatone, Mr. Focus Apolo Anton Ohno, and Mrs. Steadfast Competitor Laila Ali, the show has a particularly hard act to follow with its fifth season. Will these stars accomplish this heavy task?
Questions on Melanie Brown’s appearance on the show have finally silenced as ABC announced that she will be performing on the dance floor, contrary to previous rumors of her appearing as a judge. She will be paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
As predicted, Jennie Garth from Beverly Hills 90210 will also be appearing on Dancing with the Stars. There’s a twist though, as she will be teaming up with Derek Hough, Dancing with the Stars pro champ Juliana Hough’s brother.
Sixty-five-year-old entertainer best known as Mr. Las Vegas, Wayne Newton will also participate in the show together with his partner, Cheryl Burke. Vocal owner of the Dallas Mavericks and all-around rich guy will be teaming with Dancing with the Stars favorite, Kym Johnson.

Sabrina Bryan of Disney’s manufactured pop group Cheetah Girls will be competing in cooperation with a brand new professional joining Dancing with the Stars, Mark Ballas.
Marie Osmond, a pleasing addition to the cast, will be joining the show with professional dancer Jonathan Roberts. Jane Seymour, on the other hand, will be paired with professional dancer Tony Dovolani. Thirty-two-year-old Brazilian native and two-time winner of the Indy 500, Helio Castroneves is set to bring a high level of competitiveness to the show, as he is paired with Juliana Hough.
