Last night was the first hit — a live announcement on the season finale of Dance War revealing the 12 celebrities who will be competing in Dancing with the Stars 6. This morning brought in another live announcement, revealing the following pros who will be dancing right along with them:
*Mark Ballas, who will be paired with Kristi Yamaguchi.
*Kim Johnson will be dancing with Penn Jillette.
*Edyta Sliwinska has been paired with Jason Taylor.
*Louis van Amstel will be dancing with Priscilla Presley.
*Anna Trebunskaya, who will be paired with Steve Guttenberg.
*Cheryl Burke, who will be dancing with Cristian de la Fuente.
*Karina Smirnoff will be dancing with Mario.
*Fabian Sanchez has been paired with Marlee Matlin.
*Julianne Hough will dance with Adam Carolla.
*Derek Hough will dance with Shannon Elizabeth.
*Tony Dovolani, who will dance with Marissa Jaret Winokur.
*Jonathan Roberts will be dancing alongside Monica Seles.
Fans will undoubtedly notice a name missing from the list: that of Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who is taking a breather this season. Stepping in for Maks will be his pal and mambo champ, Fabian Sanchez.
Dancing with the Stars 6 premieres Monday, March 17, 8:00 PM (ET) on ABC.
