Dancing With The Stars Cast Announced: Features Gladys Knight and Urkel

The latest Dancing With the Stars cast is low on disgraced politicians or their kids, high on former TV stars and singers, and boasts a dash of fancy football footwork.

DWTS has announced its latest set of actors, singers, and athletes to hoof it up on national television. The hopefuls include Little House on the Prairie's Melissa Gilbert, The View's Sherri Shepherd, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver, singers Gladys Knight and Gavin DeGraw, and Family Matter's own uber-nerd, Urkel—aka Jaleel White.

They'll all take the stage on March 19 to kick off the show's 14th season in a two-hour special. And chances are we will be watching. Why? Any chance to see famous dances like the tango and the Lindy Hop joined by “The Urkel” is a chance we will definitely take.
