Last week I blogged about the announcement of season 12’s “Dancing with the Stars” celebrity line-up. This past weekend it was announced who each celebrity will be paired with. Each star is coupled with a professional dancer, but only time will tell if they bring out the best in the celebrity, or whether they will fall, possibly literally.

The confirmed celebrity/dancer match-up’s are as follows:

  • Model Petra Nemcova & Dmitry Chaplin– Chaplin was first discovered by America when he was on “So You Think You Can Dance.” He was also on seasons eight and nine of DWTS.
  • Actress Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy– Chmerkovskiy is a dance champion, choreographer and instructor, and was on season two of DWTS.
  • Playboy model and TV personality Kendra Wilkinson & Louis Van Amstel– Van Amstel is a 12-time dance champion and Emmy-nominated choreographer. He has been on DWTS five times prior to season 12.
  • Radio DJ “Psycho” Mike Catherwood & Lacey Schwimmer– Schwimmer appeared on season three of SYTYCD and came in fourth place. She has been on DWTS before, and third place was the closest she got to a win.
  • Actor Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff– Smirnoff has appeared on DWTS every season since the third, and made her Broadway debut in 2009 with the show Burn the Floor.
  • Ex-boxer Sugar Ray Leonard & Anna Trebunskaya– Trebunskaya has been on DWTS several times before and finished in second place in season 10.
  • Former pro-wrestler Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke– Burke has been a regular on DWTS for many seasons, and is the only one to appear in the finals four times, two of which ended in wins.
  • Actress Chelsea Kane Staub & Mark Ballas– Ballas has appeared on DWTS seven times before, and is the only male pro-dancer to win the championship twice.
  • Pittsburgh Steeler’s wide receiver Hines Ward & Kym Johnson– Johnson returns to DWTS for the fifth time this season, and holds the winning crown for season two under her belt, or rather her, um, dress?
  • Actor, rapper and basketball player Romeo Miller & Chelsie Hightower– Hightower made her big television debut on a prior season of SYTYCD, and quickly became a favorite. She has been on DWTS a few times before, but never won. I personally love her and wish her good luck this season!
  • Talk show host Wendy Williams & Tony Dovolani– Dovolani has appeared on DWTS prior to season 12, and came in third twice, but never won.

The 2-hour premier of Season 12 of Dancing with the Stars airs on Monday, March 21 at 8 pm on ABC.
