Dancing with stars kicks off we review the lineup

It's the eight season ABC's flagship reality TV shop - Dancing with the Stars and as usual it is a mixture of the "she should be good at this" and the "Oh my God is he really going to do this".

So who's signed up to cha-cha-cha, rhumba and paso doble their way into our homes and supposedly into our hearts.

Belinda Carlisle - The 80's pop sensation is back to strut her stuff. Will her dance steps be like "Heaven on Earth"

David Alan Grier - Actor and comedian famous for his roles in comedy series - In Living Colour.

Shawn Johnson - Multi-medal winning gymnast from the Beijing Olympics, Shawn will definitely be a contender.

Lil' Kim - Grammy Award winning rapper and recently reprieved jail bird. Lil' Kim would be looking to rejuvenate her image with some stylish displays.

Holly Madison - Former Playboy playmate (Nov 2005) and one Hugh Hefner's girlfriends. Madison will be keen to show she's more than just a pretty face and sexy body. Having stepped into replace last minute withdrawal Jewel, she needs to get into the groove quickly.

Giles Marini - A Sexy Monsieur from Sex and City. French born Giles is most famous for his role as Dante in the HBO smash hit.

Ty Murray
- Ty is the nine times Rodeo world champion, a man's man in man's sport. I guess somewhere inside all of us there is a little Billy Elliot yearning to get out.

Steve-O - Is the genteel world of Dancing with Stars is really ready for Jackass star Steve O. To say he loves controversy is an understatement.

Denise Richards - Charlie Sheen's ex and Hollywood actress. Like Madison she'll be hoping to prove that she more than just a 'yummy mummy'

Melissa Rycroft - Ex Dallas Cowboys cheerleader and winner of ABC's reality TV show The Bachelor although she later got dumped by the bachelor in question - Jason Mesnick. Time to show him what he's missing.

Lawrence Taylor - Legendary line backer for the NY Giants and star of American Football from the 80's. Interesting to see how he makes out, as with Steve Wozniak these two are the 'Daddies' of the group

Chuck Wicks - Country Music singer song writer. Interestingly his professional partner will be his girlfriend Julianne Hough. Brave man!

Steve Wozniak - Apple Computers Supremo. Now this is bound to be hilarious, middle aged uber-nerd sashaying across the floor. For Steve's sake I hope he has a good outing, otherwise it could be car-crash TV.
