I certainly hope you are, because the new season of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars premieres tonight on ABC. For the 13 celebrities and their partners, this means it's time to dance. But what does that mean to a simple viewer like me or you?

First of all, we have these All-Atar types. If you have been a loyal viewer of Dancing with the Stars since season 1 all those years ago, you probably know each and every one of them intimately. But seriously, how many people have seen all 14 previous seasons? Even I haven't, and I write about this show for a living!

So who do we have on Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars?

Other Entertainment

Because Dancing with the Stars can't just have dancing on the show, we have a couple of musical acts to look forward to in the first week of competition. Both Justin Bieber (alert your pre-teens!) and Pitbull are scheduled to perform during this week's episodes.

So that should be cool.


Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars premieres on Monday, September 24 at 8pm on ABC. We will get the first results on Tuesday, September 25.
