March Madness may be over, but April Insanity has officially begun.

Well into season 10 of America's most popular show, the Dancing with the Stars pro partners are now celebrities in their own right. BuddyTV decided to stir up even more competition between these stars, and their devoted fans, by pitting these ballroom pros against each other to see who comes out on top as America's Favorite Dancing with the Stars Pro Partner.

Just like an NCAA bracket, each week we'll pit two stars against each other, and let you battle it out in the polls to decide who will advance to the next round.

Who will make it through to "the big dance"? (Gives whole new meaning to the term, don't you think?) It's all up to you!

Vote for your favorites in "The Sexy 16" below!
