The season 18 cast of “Dancing With the Stars 2014” will be announced Tuesday morning on “Good Morning America,” but there are plenty of “DWTS 2014” spoilers making the rounds already. Who will be dancing this season? How accurate are the “Dancing With the Stars” spoilers? On March 3 Too Fab shared the list they pulled together from their sources, and this list is looking quite solid.

“Dancing With the Stars” spoilers for season 18 indicate that the celebrities on this season supposedly include:

  • Billy Dee Williams from “Star Wars”
  • Bruce Jenner from “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”
  • Candace Cameron-Bure from “Full House”
  • Charlie White from the Sochi Olympics
  • Cody Simpson, singer
  • Danica McKellar from “The Wonder Years”
  • Diana Nyad, long-distance swimmer
  • Drew Carey from “The Price Is Right”
  • James Maslow from Big Time Rush
  • Meryl Davis from the Sochi Olympics
  • NeNe Leakes from “Real Housewives of Atlanta”
  • Sean Avery, former NHL player

One curious point, however, may be in relation to the females listed. “Dancing With the Stars” devotee and PureDWTS site expert Courtney shared via Twitter that Derek Hough is indeed dancing this season on "DWTS 2014," but he's going to have his work cut out for him. She says everybody will be surprised by who his partner is, and it'll be someone big enough to lure Derek back into season 18 when he likely wasn't going to participate otherwise.

Courtney also teased that fans need to think of “what Derek might be able to do that other pros might not be able to.” In looking at the current rumored list, there really are not any females that fit those teases, and there is little doubt to “Dancing With the Stars 2014” spoiler fans that Courtney is off-base with her teases. NeNe would certainly be a challenge for Derek, but that pairing really would seemingly fall short of how big Courtney makes this seem.

So, is one of the female names on the list wrong? It may well be that one of the males, in all likelihood Bruce Jenner over the others, isn't dancing, leaving one spot still open for Derek's mystery partner. Or, could there be 13 couples instead of 12 because the casting folks scored a major win in signing someone big late in the game?

There is speculation that Derek's partner could even be someone like Liza Minelli, which would certainly fit the clues. Others speculate someone like Sharon Osbourne or Paula Deen, which would certainly be challenging matches too. Osbourne, however, wouldn't exactly be someone out of left field, given Jack and Kelly's participation in previous seasons.

How about the other match-ups? So far that's mostly speculation, but there have been a few hints and theories. Fans suspect that Sean Avery is partnered with Karina Smirnoff, and Cheryl Burke has Drew Carey. Cody Simpson may have Witney Carson as a partner, and many suspect Olympian Charlie White is with either Peta Murgatroyd or Sharna Burgess.

Just who will be dancing on “Dancing With the Stars 2014”? How accurate were the “DWTS 2014” spoilers leading up to the announcement? Tune in to “GMA” Tuesday, March 4 to see how the new season is shaping up.

Updated: The "DWTS 2014" cast has been announced, and the leaked list was pretty accurate! Many will be relieved to see there is no Bruce Jenner, and now it's known that Derek Hough's partner is Amy Purdy. Which star are you rooting for this season on "Dancing With the Stars 2014"?
