IT’S HERE! The “Dancing with the Stars” Season 14 premiere will air this evening with a two-hour show starting at 8/7c with your returning hosts, Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet, along with your favorite (and sometimes flamboyant) judges, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba. It’s a brand new season – who will bring their “A” game?
The teams were announced just a few weeks ago live on “Good Morning America” where the world got the lowdown on the new cast members and their pro dance partner.
You can read the recap here.
The teams assignments are: “Team Driving Miss Peta” Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd, “Team Gavin” Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff (somehow I’m not getting a good vibe from this less than inspirational duo – they couldn’t even come up with a unique name like Grawnoff!), “Team Gladys Knight” Gladys Knight (obviously) and Tristan MacManus (another ho-hum duet – how about original Gladys Knight and the Pipsqueakus?), “Team Wagannbuns” Jack Wagner and Anna Trebunskaya, “Team Jaleel” Jaleel White and Kym Johnson (wouldn’t it have been more trademarked to go with Urkelson?), “Team KMark” Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas, “Team Menough” Maria Menounos and Derek Hough, “Team Sweetspot” Martina Navratilova and Tony Dovolani, Team MGMC” Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, “Team Rochee” Roshon Fegan and Chelsea Hightower, “Team SherVal” Sherri Shepherd and Val Chmerkovskiy, and “Team William Levy” William Levy (too obvious?) and Cheryl Burke (what would you have said to Will.C.Burke?)
Before the season starts, however, here is a preview of the NEW MEN~
