Here Is Your "DWTS" Season 20 Lineup

Just to be clear, the giant sparkly "10" is for "perfect 10," not Season 10. There have been TWICE that many seasons. Which is both awesome and insane.

Whoa whoa whoa: It's SEASON 20 of "Dancing with the Stars"? Can we talk about this? I was finally wrapping my head around the fact that "So You Think You Can Dance" is gearing up for its 12th (!) season—and then, BOOM, the press release for the Season 20 "DWTS" cast landed in my inbox. Time flies when you're having dance-y fun, apparently!

Anyway, yes: Everyone's favorite ballroom extravaganza is gearing up for another bedazzled run, and we now know (almost) all of the celebs and dancers who'll be competing. Highlights of the celebrity lineup include Olympian Nastia Liukin (whom I've always wanted to slap pointe shoes on—doesn't she look like she'd make a beautiful ballerina?), TV star Suzanne Somers, music legend Patti LaBelle, The Hunger Games' Willow Shields and actress Rumer Willis.

For us nerds, though, the pros are the true celebrities. So the happiest news of all is that many of our favorite superdancers will also be taking the floor this season—among them Derek Hough, Allison Holker, Mark Ballas and Sharna Burgess. Last season's champ, the fantabulous Witney Carson, will be returning, too, though her partner is TBD.

Here's the complete list. Tune into ABC on Monday, March 16 at 8 pm EST for the "DWTS" premiere!

From her work with The Lab Studios to Video Music Award–winning choreography for BTS, there's no stopping this starlet from bringing her love of dance to the global stage.

"Dance is something that can truly connect people," Sienna tells Dance Spirit. "It's a universal language. We may not speak the same language physically, but when we dance, there's a connection where we understand each other on another level."
