"All-Star" Season for Dancing with the Stars

ABC has announced that the fall season for Dancing with the Stars will be comprised of "all-stars" from previous shows.  Whether these folks are stars at all is questionable to me, but you be the judge.  Here's the list of announced contestants.

Kirstie Alley
Pamela Anderson
Sabrina Bryan
Helio Castroneves
Joey Fatone
Shawn Johnson
Carson Kressley
Drew Lachey
Gilles Marini
Kyle Massey
Kelly Monaco
Apolo Anton Ohno
Bristol Palin
Melissa Rycroft
Emmitt Smith

This will be the first time prior contestants will return for second shot at the mirror ball trophy.

In case  you've been on another planet for the past few years, DWTS is hosted by Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke-Charvet ("Dancing with the Stars" Season Seven Champion).  In the competition,  so-called celebrities perform choreographed dance routines  with their partners, professional dancers, and are judged by Ballroom judge Len Goodman, dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

Viewers cast their votes for their favorite teams via phone.  Additionally, fans can now vote on Facebook A custom Facebook app sponsored by AT&T will let fans vote, share who they voted for and why, as well as see who friends voted for.
