DWTS: 16th season starts Monday night
Twelve new stars are hoping to be stars as they lace up their dance shoes to try and samba, shimmy, and tango their way to the top of the leaderboard.
Among the Dancing with the Stars contestants are comedians Andy Dick and D.L. Hughley, who will be bringing their laughs to the line-up.
"This is the perfect place to embarrass yourself,” Hughley says.
This year's cast pits country queen Winona Judd against fellow singer Kellie Pickler.
The 16th season also boasts an all-star lineup of athletes. Boxing champ Victor Ortiz, Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman and skating sensation Dorothy Hamill. who says her time on the ice isn't an advantage.
"As skaters we try to make it look as though it's dancing but it's pretty much opposite," Hamill says.
But one dancing king that's already caught the attention of our area is Baltimore Raven's Super Bowl champ Jacoby Jones, who's looking to give his Lombardi a little company from that mirrored ball.
