ABC revealed the 12 new Dancing With the Stars contestants this morning, and we can’t wait to see all the fringe and sequin-covered costumes! The View co-host Sherri Shepherd will be shimmying with Val Chmerkovskiy, Extra host Maria Menounos is paired with Derek Hough, and Gladys Knight will be learning from Tristan MacManus. Also joining the season 14 cast: Little House on the Prairie star Melissa Gilbert (above second from right), tennis pro Martina Navratilova, singers Gavin DeGraw and Katherine Jenkins (above far left), and Family Matters star Jaleel White (aka: Steve Urkel). Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver, soap star Jack Wagner, telenovela star William Levy and The Disney Channel’s Roshon Fegan round out the competition. Watch as their salsa skills are put to the test when the show premieres March 19th at 8/7c on ABC.
