The 11th season of Dancing With The Stars was unveiled last night on Bachelor Pad in a two-part reveal reminiscent of LeBron James’ The Decision.

Well, maybe that’s taking it a little far. In fairness to DWTS, the announcement of the new cast was more interesting that went down on the Pad.

Here’s who’s on tap:

DANCING HOPEFULS: Yes, that’s really Bristol Palin on the bottom right!

  • Michael Bolton
  • Rick Fox
  • David Hasselhoff
  • Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino
  • Kurt Warner
  • Kyle Massey
  • Bristol Palin
  • Jennifer Grey
  • Margaret Cho
  • Audrina Patridge
  • Brandy
  • Florence Henderson

What does Sarah Palin think about daughter Bristol being on the show?” Brooke Burke asked Bristol Palin. “She’s excited for me,” said the teenage mom.

Will we possibly see Palin in the ballroom? “Hopefully,” said Bristol.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Grey is worried there will be unfair expectations from fans who remember her moves opposite Patrick Swayze in 1987’s Dirty Dancing.

“I’m 50!” she said. “It’s been a lot of years…”

Not among the cast? Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez. The Bachelorette couple were rumored for weeks to be on it, but apparently decided against it.

Season 11 premieres Monday, September 20 at 8 p.m.

Who do you think is the favorite among the cast? Who are you most excited to see? And is Bristol Palin coming on the show right or wrong?
