At last the pros are paired with the celebrities. Here we go:
Kristie Ally - Maksim Chmerkovskiy - Maks was her original pro.
Pamela Anderson - Tristan MacManus – I think this will be a great show for the two of them.
Joey Fatone - Kym Johnson – His original pro. I did not see this season but I know these two will be fabulous.
Shawn Johnson – Derek Hough – Although Derek did not help her get her first mirror ball, he should have no trouble in leading her this way again.
Drew Lachey - Anna Trebunskaya – Anna is not his original pro but she works magic with her celebrities. I think Drew is in for a wonderful surprise.
Kelly Monaco - Val Chmerkovskiy – This is a new partner for Kelly, but she and Val should be great together. I expect to see some chemistry going on here!
Bristol Palin – Mark Ballas took her to third place last time. He was very understanding of the stress she was under last time, and this is a great pairing.
Melissa Rycroft - Tony Dovolani - Although this is not her original partner, she and Tony will be magnificent. I am happy to see Tony with a better partner this time. He has not done as well in the last few shows, due to the nature of his partners. Good luck Tony!!!
Emmitt Smith – Cheryl Burke. I know Emmitt is breathing a sigh of relief, having Cheryl again. Can they win another mirror ball together?
Gilles Marini - Peta Muryatroyd - Gilles placed second with Cheryl Burke last time. But Peta is an excellent choice for him. She won her first mirror ball trophy last season with Donald Driver. Her choreography is superb. I can’t wait to see them dance.
Apolo Anton Ohno - Karina Smirnoff - This should be a great fit!
Helio Castroneves – Chelsie Hightower – Another great fit!
