Don't they have a huge fan base? That will probably mean he'll be around for awhile. Marie was in the final 3 -- Miss Dorky Doll Dance herself. Unbelievable-- -and all because of their fans.

I don't hate them or anything, but I'm certainly not a fan. Why isn't it enough that they have millions of fans who love them? Why do they want to convert the rest of us? They ought to count their blessings that they are still able to make a living in the entertainment industry, and stop trying to get into the public eye, and wanting to get bigger and more popular all the time.

So apparently the cast was leaked online today, big surprise. I am not too thrilled, looks boring, not excited.

As announced this evening on ABC's "All Night Name Drop," in alphabetical order, the 13 stars making their ballroom dancing debut are:

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.
