Country fans from all over the world have got to be pleased with the folks at “Dancing with the Stars.” According to USA Today, former “American Idol” finalist Kellie Pickler will be strapping on some dancing shoes this spring for the show’s sixteenth season.
That’s not all! Wynonna Judd will also be joining the competition along with an interesting list of contenders. This session has quite the variety consisting of a handful of athletes, actors and comedians.
Reality television star Lisa Vanderpump is signed up and ready to roll as well as soap opera star Ingo Rademacher from “General Hospital.” Do people still watch soap operas?
Andy Dick and D.L. Hughley should be good for at least a few laughs at the very least while Disney star Zendaya Coleman may draw a younger audience for the show.
As many country music fans will be focusing on their two girls, the athletes stand a chance of stealing some attention. Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones will be flaunting his Super Bowl ring as he struts his stuff on the dance floor without a doubt and who could blame him?
Boxer Victor Ortiz and Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman are also in the line-up beginning in March. So, who is the one to watch? It’s certainly a little too early to predict but anyone who remembers figure skater Dorothy Hamill will undoubtedly be pulling for her. Long before “Friends” fans were getting “Rachel” haircuts, thousands were getting the Dorothy Hamill cut.
“Dancing with the Stars” kicks off their next season on Monday, March 18th at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. Is it going to be DVR worthy? The two hour premiere should be entertaining; after that it’s anyone’s guess.
