'Dancing' celebrities ready to hit the floor

March 22, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
The new season of "Dancing With the Stars" kicks off Monday. This season has new stars, of course, and a new host. Former winner Brooke Burke will join Tom Bergeron, as co-host.

A fan favorite is coming back this time around: the popular dance-off competition. And one competitor is hinting that there could be another tribute to Michael Jackson.

All 11 stars and their professional partners will take the floor Monday with either the Cha Cha or the Viennese Waltz.

The couple with the lowest combined judges' scores and public vote for both performances will be eliminated on March 30.

The cast includes: Evan Lysacek, Chad Ochocinco, Nicole Scherzinger, Kate Gosselin, Jake Pavelka, Buzz Aldrin, Erin Andrews, Pamela Anderson, Shannen Doherty, Niecy Nash and Aiden Turner.

You can catch all the action on ABC7 starting at 8 p.m.
