'Dancing With the Stars' 8 - 13 Crazy Contestants

ABC finally announced the 13 stars that will be taking the dance floor for season 8 during prime time last night (Sunday).  You thought it was interesting before, just check out this lineup:

  • Belinda Carlisle - The Go-Go's
  • Jewel - Singer/Songwriter
  • David Allen Grier - Comedian
  • Shawn Johnson - 17 year old Olympian
  • Lil' Kim - Rapper
  • Gilles Marini - best known as the naked guy in the "Sex and the City" movie
  • Ty Murray - cowboy and husband of Jewel
  • Steve-O - Jackass (y'know, the show and movies)
  • Nancy O'Dell - Access Hollywood
  • Denise Richards - Actress and reality star.
  • Lawrence Taylor - NY Giant
  • Chuck Wicks  - country singer
  • Steve Wozniak - aka "Woz".  Apple founder and better known to TV viewers as Kathy Griffin's ex.  
A lot of firsts this season.  As you can see we have married couple, Jewel and Ty Murray who are respectively paired up with the pro couple Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff.  Also in the relationship drama department, Chuck Wicks is actually dating pro Julianne Hough and yes, they will be partners (even though she announced earlier that she would be taking the season off).

Shawn Johnson is the youngest "star" and, well let's face it, Steve Wozniak has got to be the weirdest to join the dance crew since Penn of Penn & Teller.  Wouldn't it be amazing if he turned out to be an incredible dancer? 


Season 8 premieres Monday, March 9th at 8pm eastern!
