PostSubject: Dancing With the Stars, 2009   Mon Feb 09, 2009 1:16 pm

Last night the celebrity dancers were announced for the next DWtS, which begins March 9th. Here they are. To save time, please hold your applause until all the names have been read:

BELINDA CARLISLE -- Belinda Carlisle is not only known as the lead singer of the Go-Go's, the most successful all-female band of all time, but also as one of the late 80's most glamorous adult pop soloists. The Go-Gos' 1981 multi-platinum hit debut, "Beauty and the Beat," spawned mega hits "Our Lips Are Sealed" and "We Got the Beat" and made the Go-Go's the first all-female band (who wrote their own music and played their own instruments) to achieve a #1 album. The following years saw continued success for the girls with hits "Vacation," "Head Over Heels," and "Turn To You." Belinda led off her solo career with the gold debut "Belinda," and followed with huge mainstream hits "Mad About You," "Heaven Is A Place On Earth" and "I Get Weak," to name a few. Since then, Belinda has released 5 more albums, including 2007's French pop collection, "Voila," and continues to tour internationally, both with her Go-Go's sisters and as a solo artist.

DAVID ALAN GRIER -- Grier is often recognized for his work in television and film - in TV he is known from roles in In Living Color, Life with Bonnie with Bonnie Hunt, DAG, and most recently, Chocolate News for Comedy Central. In the feature film world, Grier has played memorable characters in numerous feature film roles, including Baadassss!, The Woodsman opposite Kevin Bacon and Mos Def, 15 Minutes, Boomerang, Bewitched, Jumanji, and Robert Altman's Streamers. A multi-talented and Yale School of Drama trained actor, Grier began his professional career on Broadway as Jackie Robinson in The First, for which he earned a Tony nomination. He then joined the cast of Dreamgirls, went on to star opposite Denzel Washington in A Soldier's Play; both actors continued their roles in the film version, A Soldier's Story.

JEWEL -- She grew up on a remote ranch in Alaska where her family were original pioneers. From poverty and teen homelessness, to the triumph of international stardom, the three-time Grammy nominee has enjoyed career longevity rare among her generation of artists and has sold twenty-seven million albums worldwide. Her debut album "Pieces of You" became one of the best selling debut albums of all time, going platinum twelve times. Last year, singer/songwriter Jewel released her first country record "Perfectly Clear" which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. In May 2009, she will release an album of original and traditional lullabies. Jewel lives on a working ranch in Stephenville, Texas with her husband, World Champion bull-riding superstar, Ty Murray.

SHAWN JOHNSON -- The youngest ever competitor on Dancing with the Stars, 17 year-old Olympian Shawn Johnson was the gold medalist in balance beam at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing where she also earned 3 silver medals in the team, floor exercise and individual all-around categories. The current two-time National Champion and high-school Junior Johnson appeared on a limited edition Cheerios box in early 2009, led the pledge of allegiance at last year's Democratic National Convention in Denver, was a headliner of last fall's Tour of Gymnastics Superstars and was named Choice Female Athlete at the 2008 Teen Choice Awards. Her debut biography Shawn Johnson: Olympic Champion: Stories Behind the Smile was released in December.

LIL' KIM -- Born Kimberly Denise Jones, Lil' Kim, is a Grammy Award winning multi-platinum rapper, singer, actress, and fashion icon. She is one of three female rappers to have a #1 Billboard Hot 100 hit with 2001's Lady Marmalade, featuring Christina Aguilera, Pink, & Mýa. As an actress, she appeared on television shows such as Moesha and The Game, and on her own reality series Countdown to Lockdown, which has the hightest-rated premiere in BET's history. On film, she has appeared in Zoolander, She's All That, Juwanna Man, and You Got Served. She is currently working on her 5th studio album is expected to be released in 2009.

GILLES MARINI -- Gilles Marini exploded onto the scene as Dante, the Casanova living in the beach house next door to Kim Cattrall's Samantha in the Sex and the City movie, a role which has earned him international recognition. Born and raised in France, Gilles joined the French army and was stationed in Paris, where he acted as a fireman for the famous Brigade des Sapeurs Pompiers de Paris. After fulfilling his military duties, Gilles decided to go to the United States to learn English while working as a model. Gilles, who has appeared in series such as Ugly Betty, Dirty Sexy Money, and Criminal Minds, will next be seen as Vanessa Redgrave's husband on FX's Nip/Tuck. Gilles currently resides in California with his wife Carole, son Georges, and daughter Juliana.

TY MURRAY -- Ty Murray has been labeled the most accomplished rodeo athlete in the century-long history of the sport. With a record-setting seven All-Around World Championship titles and two bull riding world titles under his belt, Murray has truly earned his nickname as "King of the Cowboys." Now retired from competition, Murray spends his time with his singer-songwriter wife, Jewel, on their 2,100-acre private ranch in Stephenville, Texas. Murray may have retired in the arena but he hasn't slowed down as a cowboy. In 2004, Murray helped shepherd National Day of the Horse unanimously through the U.S. Senate, encouraging Americans "to be mindful of the contribution of horses to economy, history and character of the United States." He runs his working cattle ranch and trains horses throughout the year. Additionally, he remains active with the Professional Bull Riders, Inc. (PBR), an organization he and 19 other elite bull riders founded in 1992. Murray serves as a board advisor, promotes a top level bull riding event in his hometown, and provides TV commentary for PBR events on NBC and VERSUS.

STEVE-O -- Determined to build a career in television and film, Steve-O, a.k.a. Stephen Glover, sent his self-produced videos to anyone he thought might watch them including Jeff Tremiane (MTV's Jackass creator/director/producer). Steve-O wrote himself a "mile of work" to do for Tremaine and Jackass. When MTV rejected his more dangerous ideas, Steve-O produced his own "too hot for TV" video series and stage show with the Don't Try This At Home Tour. Steve-O also starred in his own show for MTV - Wildboyz.

NANCY O'DELL -- The co-Anchor of Access Hollywood, O'Dell has contributed reports to NBC's Today Show and Dateline NBC. Beyond covering events such as The Oscars, The Emmys, The Grammys and The Golden Globe Awards, O'Dell has been chosen by NBC for the last eight years to host two of their big annual network broadcasts, The Golden Globes Arrivals Special and The Tournament of Roses Parade. Not only is O'Dell one of the country's most respected and leading entertainment journalists, she has also appeared in numerous films including: Thank You For Smoking, Scream 2, Scream 3, Martin Lawrence Live: Runteldat, and television series: 30 Rock, Project Runway, Charmed, Joey, Third Watch, Beverly Hills, 90210, Days of Our Lives, Melrose Place, General Hospital, Just Shoot Me and Ally McBeal among others. Although O'Dell maintains a busy work schedule, she regularly makes time for philanthropic endeavors. The Muscular Dystrophy Association, American Red Cross, the March of Dimes, Best Buddies, Best Buddies, and Childhelp USA have all benefited from her time and efforts. She resides in Los Angeles with her husband Keith, their daughter, Ashby, and two stepsons, Tyler and Carson.

DENISE RICHARDS -- Known for her roles in films such as Wild Things and Starship Troopers, Denise Richards got her start as a fashion model before making her way into television and movies. She was cast as Bond girl and geo-physicist "Christmas Jones" in the 1999 James Bond film The World Is Not Enough as well as appearing in films such as Drop Dead Gorgeous, Undercover Brother, and Scary Movie 3. In addition to her film work, Richards has made regular appearances in comedies Spin City, Two and a Half Men, Friends and Seinfeld. She is currently working on her second season of her own reality television show, Denise Richards: It's Complicated airing on E! Entertainment Television.

LAWRENCE TAYLOR -- Widely regarded as the greatest defensive player in the history of the National Football League, Hall of Famer Lawrence Taylor rewrote the record book and built a legendary following during one of the most storied careers in the history of American sport. Taylor spent his entire career with the New York Giants, leading them to two Super Bowl titles. Taylor was the first player in the history to be selected to the Pro Bowl in ten consecutive seasons. He was also an unanimous selection to the NFL's 75th Anniversary team, which honored the top players in the history of the game, was the NFL's Rookie of the Year in 1981, Most Valuable Player in 1986 and was the three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year. LAWRENCE was inducted into the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in 1999. LT has written two best selling books (Living on the Edge and Over The Edge), has appeared in feature films (including Any Given Sunday, The Waterboy and Shaft) and is an avid golfer and philanthropist.

CHUCK WICKS -- A gifted songwriter and vocalist, Chuck Wicks made a compelling impression with his Top 5 smash, Stealing Cinderella, the fastest-rising single by a debut country act in 2007. By the time his first album, Starting Now (RCA Nashville), was released in January 2008, he had begun a year-long 750,000 fan-packed tour opening for superstar Brad Paisley. Chuck Wicks co-penned 10 of the 11 songs on his debut CD, including his 2nd hit, All I Ever Wanted, and the new single, Man of the House, a touching story-song about a boy taking on beyond-his-years responsibilities as his father is on military assignment. For more information, please go to: www.chuckwicks.com or www.myspace.com/chuckwicks.

STEVE WOZNIAK -- A Silicon Valley icon and philanthropist for the past three decades, Steve Wozniak, a.k.a. The Woz, helped shape the computer industry with his design of Apple's first line of products, the Apple I and II, and influenced the popular Macintosh. After leaving Apple Computer Inc. in 1985, Wozniak was involved in various business and philanthropic ventures, focusing primarily on computer capabilities in schools and stressing hands-on learning and encouraging creativity for students. In 2000, he was inducted into the Inventors Hall of Fame and was awarded the prestigious Heinz Award for Technology, The Economy and Employment. Wozniak is also a published author with the release of his New York Times Best Selling autobiography, iWoz: From Computer Geek to Cult Icon, in September 2006.

I just saw the line-up this morning, Rob. My mom had e-mailed me that Shawn Johnson was going to be one of the contestants. I'm excited to watch it now. She'll be so cute!! I bet she'll be wearing 2-3 inch heels. LOL!! I'm originally from West Des Moines, where Shawn lives, so I'm sure it's all the buzz around there that she's going to be on DWTS.

I had started a thread last week about the new season of The Amazing Race. You'll be watching, won't you? It won't be the same without "Dandrew," however.

Oh yes, I'll be watching the Race. Because sometimes when you least expect it, something comes along to rock your humor world. grinsmiley

I'd heard that Donny Osmond was going to be on DWtS. He was on some talk show and mentioned it, saying something like, "It's not official, so I guess I've let the cat out of the bag." But he's not on the list. I wonder what happened.

Yeah, I saw that too. I'm thinking that isn't the best thing, because they're going to have an advantage with the passionate dances. I guess that will make everyone else step it up a notch.

I agree with you completely Teresa. Doesn't seem quite fair to me.

Thanks for posting the new line-up, Rob...last season's failed to capture my attention, but I'll probably give it another shot and see. Looks like a pretty good 'cast' actually. Thumbsup

Okay, I watched... lol
Here is my report!


I'm sure her girls at the prison were clapping their hands... at least someone was... just kidding... Lil Kim did good for a first dance... she has it in her... just needs to work on it a little more.


That's great that Steve-O is doing something good, I'm happy for him... he did well for his 1st dance... but practice practice practice! Want to see what more you can do lol


Did pretty well for the time they had to practice. She may have something here... next week should be looking better.


Ooof... this was too heavy! Not good at all... could be one of the 1st ones to go


Shawn did so good! Looking forward for more! Go Shawn!


He's okay... needs to practice!


Loved it! Loved it! I like this couple... looking forward to seeing them dance some more, one of my favorites!


Poor Denise. Stop saying you're sorry Denise... just keep on trying until that rhythm takes over your body, you can do it! You did well for your 1st dance. I saw her daddy was there.


No words... lol Might be one of the 1st ones to go.


Yikes Belinda, I hope you can master those spins because if you don't... we'll have a problem lol


Control your face expressions! LOL Like CaryAnne said, it's distracting lol


Oh my goodness... lol He's cute but the dancing... not so cute LOL


Melissa did great! One of my other favorites of the night.

I was so thrilled that this awesome gal won. I just love her. grinsmiley I was rooting for her when they announced the contestants. Then once I saw Melissa was going to be on I was rooting for her. But I am still thrilled that Shawn won and not that guy. He seems like the obvious, but didn't want it to be so.
