Dancing With The Stars Cast + Pairings Leaked

Quite a few of the new Dancing with the Stars pairings are starting to leak. Access Hollywood published a few, and the rest were culled from various sources, including Twitter.

Here is the list of celebs with their dance partners, if already known. The official announcements will be made on Monday, I believe.

Aaron Carter (w/ Karina Smirnoff) - singer
Ashley Hamilton (w/ Edyta Sliwinska) - actor/comedian/singer-songwriter/George's son
Chuck Liddell (w/ Anna Trebunskaya) - Ultimate Fighting champion
Debi Mazar (w/ Maksim Chmerkovskiy) - actress
Donny Osmond (w/ Kym Johnson) - singer
Joanna Krupa (w/ Derek Hough) - model/actress
Kathy Ireland - supermodel/K-Mart shiller
Kelly Osbourne (w/ Louis Van Amstel) - reality star & Ozzy's daughter
Louie Vito - snowboarder
Macy Gray - singer
Mark Dacascos (w/ Lacey Schwimmer) - Iron Chef personality
Melissa Joan Hart (w/ Mark Ballas) - actress, former teenage witch
Michael Irvin - former Dallas Cowboy wide receiver
Mya (w/ Dmitry Chaplin) - singer
Natalie Coughlin (w/ fellow Cal alum Alec Mazo) - Olympic swimmer
Tom DeLay (w/ Cheryl Burke) - former House of Representatives Majority Leader

Really, show? It's absurd at this point how much they favor those guys. Mark has won two of the last three years but they keep giving him good and/or popular partners, Kim Kardashian aside (but she was very well-known. Just a crummy dancer). And Derek has always had partners who have gone very far in the show. When are they going to get their Wayne Newton?! Even Julianne Hough had to deal with Adam Carrola.

And let's just talk about the lack of star power here. Melissa Joan Hart is probably the most well-known female in this group, except maybe Kathy Ireland (in her heyday, maybe not so much now). Most well-known male is probably a toss-up between Donny Osmond and Michael Irvin, both of whom will get extra votes just for being an Osmond/Mormon and a Cowboy, respectively.
