I cannot believe that we are now up to Season 14 of Dancing With the Stars, ABC's most-watched reality show. I remember the first season of Dancing With the Stars in 2005, where the big talk of the show was the battle between Kelly Monaco and John O'Hurley. The show has definitely flourished since then, bringing a variety of talent from a pool of multidisciplinary genres to the screen. That is one of the best aspects that Dancing With the Stars brings, showing the public that anyone can be a star on the dance floor and not just the performers who have been dancing since birth.
This morning on ABC's Good Morning America, Dancing With the Stars hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet announced the cast of this year's Season 14 star dancers. A great feature about this upcoming season's lineup is that most of them are well-known by the public. Many seasons prior to Season 14 had casts where the public would question "Who is that?" To see this morning's (February 28th) Good Morning America announcement, please view the YouTube video provided below.
The cast and pros lineup for Season 14 are as follows:
|Celebrity:||Pro / Partner:||Donald Driver||Peta Murgatroyd|
|Gavin DeGraw||Karina Smirnoff|
|Gladys Knight||Tristan MacManus|
|Jack Wagner||Anna Trebunskaya|
