'Dancing with the Stars' reveals season 14 cast

The upcoming season of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" could be the most difficult yet for the popular series.

"Dancing" once ruled the Monday night ratings roost, but with NBC starting to show muscle with "The Voice," the Tom Bergeron-hosted affair is facing pressure to step it up for its 14th season, especially after critics took umbrage with the series' lack of star power in recent seasons.

So who will be hoofing it up for season 14? This season's stars, revealed this morning on ABC's "Good Morning America," are:

Jack Wagner - The soap star, who currently appears on "The Bold and the Beautiful," is also quite the golfer, having won the American Century Celebrity Golf Classic on two occasions.

Melissa Gilbert - The TV icon played "Half Pint" Laura Ingalls on "Little House on the Prairie."

Donald Driver - The 13-year NFL veteran is the all-time receptions leader in Green Bay Packers history, and was selected to play in four Pro Bowls.

William Levy - Levy is a popular telenovela actor who appeared in the music video for Jennifer Lopez's "I'm Into You."

Sherri Shepherd - The "View" co-host hopes to be "bicoastal" for as long as possible as she steps into the "Dancing" arena.

Katherine Jenkins - The Welsh-born mezzo-soprano performed on an episode of "Dancing" last season.

Gavin DeGraw - The singer/songwriter has had five Top 40 hits since 2004, including "I Don't Want to Be" and "Not Over You."

Martina Navratilova - The tennis legend hopes to do better than fellow "racquet queen" Monica Seles, who was the second celebrity eliminated on the sixth season of the show.

Roshon Fegan - Teens and pre-teens know this 20-year-old for his role as Ty on Disney Channel's "Shake It Up."

Maria Menounos - The "Extra" correspondent has an unblemished record in World Wrestling Entertainment, winning both of her matches.

Jaleel White - Known by millions for his portrayal of nerdy Steve Urkel on "Family Matters," White is now hosting the upcoming Syfy game show "Total Blackout."

Gladys Knight - The legendary singer has won 11 Grammy awards in a career spanning nearly six decades.

What do you think of this season's "Dancing" cast? Season 14 will kick off on Monday, March 19 at 8 p.m. ET with a two-hour premiere.

    You completed some fine points there. An added important issue is that if you are a senior, travel insurance intended for pensioners is something you should make sure you really contemplate.

    I think they have a pretty good lineup this time around. I grew up watching "Little House" and am excited to see how Melissa does. She will always be remembered for playing one of the most beloved characters on TV. She was also president of the Screen Actors' Guild, so I don't get how anyone could say she isn't a star. And Jack Wagner has been a star of the soap opera world for almost 30 years, Jaleel White originated another memorable (if not completely annoying) TV character, so I'dsay that makes him a star as well. And Martina is a tennis legend, so I'd say that counts as a star.

    Everyone knows who Melissa Gilbert is, even if they recognize her from "Little House" but don't know her name. I remember the name Gladys Knight (the name that comes before "the Pips") but (and I mean no disrespect) wouldn't recognize her if she was the only other person in the room. As for the rest, I still don't know who the hell they are AFTER reading their descriptions. People who watched "Dancing WITH the stars" never gave a crap about dancing. We only tuned-in to see (beloved movie) *stars* learn to do something out of their element, in order to entertain us. I couldn't bring myself to watch last season, and I can't remember if I watched the season before that one. But, I'M BEGGING ... PLEASE PULL THE PLUG AND LET IT DIE!!!

    sockpuppet, San Jose, linda, Rod in Dallas, etc, – would someone please name a DWTS season when there was an A or B-list cast? So many people like to go on and on every season how "I've never heard of them" or "What a bunch of has-beens" blah blah blah. Do the haters wait for the list to come out twice a year so they can run to their computers and post the identical words they used the season before? I would think they would post for articles about the shows they watch, and let the rest of us post about the shows we watch. Or maybe they have too much time on their hands.

    I honestly believe they have a better known cast this year, however, voting needs to be taken out of the hands of the fans if this is to remain a popular show.....it really isn't about the best dancer...it's about who can pass as the best because he or she is more popular.

    Which of these people are stars? A few are or were minor celebrities at best. I suppose Gladys Night WAS a relatively successful singer, but a "star"? And Martina Navratilova was a great tennis "star". But come on, that was 30 years ago. Who are these other people? They should call it, "Dancing with the Celebrity B-list or Lower" Now, if they could get people like George Clooney, Morgan Freeman, Harrison Ford, Kristen Wigg, Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr. or Gwenyth Paltrow etc., then they can call it Dancing with the Stars. Otherwise, it's just a sad parade of has beens or never weres. I think they should breathe some life into it by letting one NON-celebrity average person win a sort of lottery to compete right up there, toe to toe with the "Stars".

Tune in as annoying toilet seat cover Urkel tries to cha-cha his way past William "I sniffed J-Lo" Levy. Get your popcorn ready, and pass me a gun to shoot myself in the head.

    Quit the negative comments. First, I bet half of you didn't know who J. R. Martinez was before he was on DWTS, and he is such an inspiration. If you still don't know who he is, Google him before you make any nasty comments. Second, as far as "reality tv" goes, this is one of the only shows families can watch together that mainly focuses on hard work and cooperation. If you don't like it, don't watch. However, if you've ever watched The Real World, Wipeout, Gene Simmons Family Jewels or any of the Real Housewives of wherever, you are not allowed to trash this show. Finally, I bet a large majority of the "celebrities" donate any earnings from the show to charity.

      Tebow is so uncoordinated. He throws the football like it's a frisbee. Yeah, sure, the Broncos made the playoffs but I say it was a case of a team dragging their QB along. Elway better draft well.

      I am actually FLOORED that Gavin is going to be on this show. He seems too... established in his career to do this. He's past the "desperate to be noticed/breaking into the scene" and is nowhere near the "career peaked, but still loved by fans" phase.

      Steve Urkel being the big star? Come on now! If you are on Twitter on a regular basis, people like me and Sitcoms Online have been trying to get actresses Christine Lakin and Jodie Tweetin from that same "TGIF" line-up for years, because they actually WANTED to perform on it! Granted they both didn't have a tagline like "Did I do that?", but Christine has become a well-respected actress, great voice-over talent on "Family Guy", and is in charge of Worst Audition Ever in CA, while Jodie has written an excellent book ("UnSweetined") about her fall and rise back to the top due to her past drug use, and is a great mother to her two daughters as well. ABC should treat their alumni with more respect, and not put an actor on "DWTS" because of one tagline that was overrun for almost 10 years!

    Every season one has to filter through the "they call these stars?!?!!!" posts as if in past seasons the "stars" were any closer to A list than the current. Every season I normally recognize about three so this feels about on par with other years. I got a smile for Melissa because every girl my age wanted to be Laura Ingalls and the geek in me had a wee squee moment over Jaleel. My 6 yr old son has been watching old Sonic episodes so it will be fun to show him the real person behind the voice.

      Or one could argue that interesting people in an art form that was sadly dying is preserving culture even if it does use minor celebrities to accomplish the goal.
