Every season, speculation runs rampant about which celebrities will take the stage of Dancing with the Stars. Will the show get big, popular stars? Who will be a surprise? During the Tuesday airing of Good Morning America, ABC announced the Dancing with the Stars season 14 cast. Keep reading to learn all of the celebrity names as well as their professional dancing partners.

Most of the time, we don't get to find out the celebrity and professional dancers for a Dancing with the Stars season all at once. But instead of separate announcements (celebrities during prime-time, professionals in the morning), ABC opted to name the Dancing with the Stars season 14 celebrities and professional dancers all at once.

Of course, that announcement has to wait for national and international news, as well as jokey moments from Tom Bergeron (nice sign...). It's not like ABC would let us know the cast names right away...

Considering that they can get a theater full of DWTS fans in California at 4am, I suppose that the show doesn't need to worry about such things as time.

Wow, based on what was said, it looks like star #12 was only just cast. The last-minute replacement will be paired with Tristan MacManus

So who are the DWTS season 14 stars?

  • Jack Wagner - Melrose Place actor
  • Melissa Gilbert -- Little House on the Prairie actress
  • Donald Driver - Green Bay Packers receiver
  • William Levy - telenovela star (The Soup is going to love this one)
  • Sherri Shepherd - The View host and actress (aka, Tracy Jordan's wife on 30 Rock)
  • Katherine Jenkins - opera singer
  • Gavin DeGraw - singer and expert hat-wearer
  • Martina Navratilova - tennis player
  • Roshon Fegan - Shake It Up star on Disney
  • Maria Menounos - Extra host
  • Jaleel White - Urkel (who also plays the banjo)
  • Gladys Knight - singer who started out recording with the Pips
