lisa vanderpumpThis may possibly be the hottest season in Dancing With the Stars history. Even the promos are boasting "the sexy is back." Indeed it is. From Real Housewives of Beverly Hills vixen Lisa Vanderpump to NFL star Jacoby Jones, this group looks ready to wow us with some seriously impressive moves. Though, we all know that looks can be deceiving (who would have thought season 7 disaster Kim Kardashian didn't have an ounce of rhythm?). Here's an up close look at the stars vying for our votes.

Who are you rooting for?

  • KELLIE PICKLER & DEREK HOUGH

    The American Idol alum is practically unrecognizable. She knows how to work it on the mic, but we'll see if the country crooner has smooth moves to match.

  • ANDY DICK & SHARNA BURGESS

    This is probably the last show you'd expect the controversial comic to show up on. I am sure a lot of people assume he'll be the first to go, but he may surprise us.

  • D.L. HUGHLEY & CHERYL BURKE

    If comedian D.L. Hughley’s feet are as quick as that sharp tongue of his, he’ll be fine. At worst, we will get a few laughs out of him in between paso dobles.

  • LISA VANDERPUMP & GLEB SAVCHENKO

    Probably the most battle-ready contender, this will be a breeze compared to the viper's nest she comes from. She'll surely bring elegance and grace into the mix. Word is, her costars are jealous she was the first Real Housewife asked to be on the show.

  • DOROTHY HAMILL & TRISTAN MACMANUS

    At 56, Hamill looks way younger than her years. What could be the gold medal winning skater's secret? As for her chances, if she can handle herself so expertly on the ice, this should be a breeze.

  • WYNONNA JUDD & TONY DOVOLANI

    The legendary country singer said she was inspired by former contestant Kirstie Alley, who dropped tons of weight during her time on the show.

  • INGO RADEMACHER & KYM JOHNSON

    Every season needs a gorgeous soap star. This time it's Aussie hottie Rademacher. Here's hoping there is some shirtless practice footage!

  • JACOBY JONES & KARINA SMIRNOFF

    Football players have taken home that Mirror Ball Trophy before, so the Baltimore Ravens hunk could go all the way.

  • ALY RAISMAN & MARK BALLAS

    The Olympic gymnast had all the right moves at The Games. She's clearly a strong competitor, but does that translate to the dance floor?

  • VICTOR ORTIZ & LINDSAY ARNOLD

    The boxer will have to learn how to float like a butterfly if he's going to survive these rounds.

  • ZENDAYA COLEMAN & VAL CHMERKOVSKIY

    The star of the Disney Channel's Shake It Up, Coleman could be the sleeper. People under 12 may not know a lot about her, but she is a triple threat -- actress, singer, and dancer.
