New “DWTS” Cast Revealed

The season of sequined fringe is upon us.

The season of sequined fringe is upon us.

The season 16 cast of “Dancing with the Stars” was announced today on “Good Morning America.” Yay?

Sorry. I’m sure the latest season of this weirdly fascinating cultural phenomenon will be just as entertaining as the last 15. I’m just feeling a little sad that one Chelsie Hightower isn’t involved in the proceedings this time around. Chelsie! We’ll miss you!

The happier news is that Aly Raisman, the awesome surprise hero of last year’s U.S. Olympic women’s gymnastics team, will be competing for the mirrorball trophy. And there are some newbie pros—including “So You Think You Can Dance” alum Lindsay Arnold—on the list who might spice things up a little. Real yay!

Here’s the lineup:

Wynonna Judd and Tony Dovolani

D.L. Hughley and Cheryl Burke

Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff
Lisa Vanderpump and new dancer Gleb Savchenko
Andy Dick and new dancer Sharna Burgess
Victor Ortiz and new dancer Lindsay Arnold

Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy

Aly Raisman and Mark Ballas

Ingo Rademache and Kym Johnson
Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough

Dorothy Hamill and Tristan MacManus

Tune in for the premiere of “DWTS” on March 28 at 8/7 central on ABC.
