ABC announced the full cast lineup of "Dancing with the Stars" as the hit show enters season 16.
For 2013, an Olympic gymnast, a Super Bowl champion, a professional boxer, two country music singers and a 16-year-old Disney Channel star will be part of the 11 competitors dancing their way to victory.
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.
