The full cast lineup was announced Tuesday on “Good Morning America.”

“DWTS” is entering its 16th season, off the heels of an all-stars season that saw Melissa Rycroft and her professional partner Tony Dovolani as the winners in November of season 15.

Season 16 of “Dancing With The Stars” will premiere on March 18.
