'Dancing With the Stars' New 2012 Cast

by Emily Yahr

No controversial figures will populate the dance floor this season on "Dancing With the Stars," as Gladys Knight was easily the most surprising name announced out of the dozen new cast members on "Good Morning America."

The only other sort of-surprise? Pro dancer Maksim Chermkovskiy, who caused headlines last season for his bad attitude, and claimed the reality dancing competition was "his show," will be back to dance again.

Some of the bigger names on the list included Jack Wagner, Sherri Shepherd, Gavin DeGraw and the guy who played 'Urkel,' also known as Jaleel White.

Plus, not a single political figure, even in an election year (Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann had already made it clear they weren

Soooo ... DWTS's Bad Boy is back.

Ladies --- happy?, agitated?, PO'd?, or counting the days ?

I just love Maks and am so glad he is back. animated_bouncy.gif I think his comments last year were blown way out of proportion. I think he said what he said in the heat of the moment and it came out wrong.

Yummy Val and Tristan are going to be there. :)

Wasn't Katherine Jenkins on during classics week, where one of the Girls Next Door danced? No not the wedding obsessed blonde, the sporty blonde. I don't remember her name. There was the joke about her being a Soprano by the host.

Yes Max is a hunk but that is trumped by him being a bully. I don't like bullies. :skellington:

Great show tonite

(The judges must have stopped for a few drinky-poos together before the show I think.)

Should be an interesting season. Lots of this new batch seem pretty evenly matched

for inborn rhythm and are ready to get on with it.

I kinda feel sorry for the bottom 3. Must have been discouraging to watch so many

other ones get high scores.

The blonde lady singer from England was one of my favs. Kinda a combination of

Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe in looks.

(I'd love to see Mellisa Gilbert get past the first round or two and end up knocking

their socks off.)

Hey who is the moderator? Where are the pictures and threads for the dancers.

They have some really good dancers this year. I don't know most of them but I think it is going to be a good season.

Marty I went to post in 1 or 2 of them last night .... and realized they weren't there.

You want to post them ? If not, maybe I'll post them next week.... if they don't happen

to magically appear.

I kind of liked Sherry Sheppard but I am tired of her google-eyed, jive-talking act. Some of them are so bad that when you see someone good (the brit blonde, for instance) it makes you wonder why they even try. Jeez, Martina. Why?

I thought they were VERY generous with their scores and comments this week for some of the contestants! I couldn't believe it...

We were talking about the scores and how we missed the progress from week to week of growth and difficulty. This season has been like being presented with a full grown flower arrangement and just waiting for them to start wilting instead of seeing the flower grow and bloom.

I'm thinking that they could change the scoring paddles to colors to represent a mix of technicality and so forth. Make it more interesting.

KatO ... sounds like an idea that they should play around with and see if they can come up with a better way of scoring.

I've mentioned a few times it seems like the Judges are all over the place this season.

( wonder if they've all been stopping for Happy Hour before they come to the show ? )

I'll admit there's been a lot of really entertaining dances with it being so early in

the show.... but, what about the technicality as you said ?

Watching last nights dances, Katherine Jenkins brought it all to the dance floor. She did very well with telling a story in dance without lyrics. I also saw some dances that felt like slow-mo with bursts of speed. I thik this might be the week that Gavin goes home, his dance was just meh. I wish I could watch the live results tonight except I've got a practice to plan out July's schedule.

I LOVE Katharine, and I have grown to love Maria. I also love me some Donald Driver, and William is a sexy hunk of meat, but I don't really want him to win. All in all, a great final four. Any one of them could win it.

What is this 24-hour dance marathon thing? I'm almost certain this is going to be another new thing like the three-some dances and the dance duels. I'm just not sure what it entails or how the dancer's are expected to do it.

editing because Robo-Poster found the info.

And in the final element of the competition on Tuesday, the three finalists perform a new routine in our "24 Hour Challenge" - in which they will have had 24 hours to pair their dance style of choice to music given to them after Monday night's show. This routine will be scored out of 30 and will round out the judges' scores across both nights.

I think this is going to be cool.
