And now, your Dancing With The Stars lineup for Season Nine

It's one of my favorite times of the year, Dancing With The Stars returns for Season Nine next month!

Here's the lineup announced yesterday on ABC's Good Morning America, let's just say the cast is well....interesting

MACY GRAY - a popular singer from that nostaglic decade known as the 1990s
MELISSA JOAN HART - star of Clarissa Explains All from the Golden Age of Nickelodeon, also later became a TV witch
KATHY IRELAND - SI model from my days of youth, also star of the movie Alien From LA
MYA - an R&B singer who was in the Chicago movie
MARK DACASCOS - Food Network personality
ASHLEY HAMILTON - George Hamilton's son, married to Shannon Doherty for about ten seconds
MICHAEL IRVIN - Dallas Cowboys HOF receiver, ESPN broadcaster known to wear some of the three piece suits from the Rose Weiss collection (just kidding!)
DONNY OSMOND - Marie's brother, and he can sing pretty good
TOM DeLAY - Former House Majority Leader, I guess Newt Gingrich wasn't available
NATALIE COUGHLIN - US Olympic gold medal swimmer not named Michael Phelps
JOANNA KRUPA - model, covergirl and actress....and Terrell Owens' BFF
DEBI MAZUR - a famous actress from days gone by (the 1980s and 1990s)
KELLY OSBOURNE - Ozzy's daughter
AARON CARTER - singing teen idol from the good ol' days of the 90s
CHUCK LIDDELL - UFC fighter, expert in Mixed Martial Arts and he's NOT related to Barney Liddell
LOUIE VITO - snowboarder from the ESPN's X-Games

It has everything, interesting stars, hot ballroom action and possibities of a train wreck, all in the name of entertainment! Coupled with the new season of Lawrence Welk shows and football, this will be my favorite time of the year and you know my DVR will be humming!

Oh, and I'm still holding out hope for any of the Welk Stars to appear in the Macy's Stars Of The Dance segment

Maybe you can make that happen. You have met quite a few of them. Maybe you can get Bobby and Elaine to do the jive or Gail, MaryLou and Sandy to do YellowBird with Maks and Karina doing the waltz. I am sure Tom may know a few of them as well since he has done everything tv and radio.
