The "celebrity"/professional pairings were announced for the 11th season of Dancing with the Stars, and in a shocking development, Derek Hough was paired with someone with dance experience, Cheryl Burke was paired with an athlete, and Karina Smirnoff was paired with someone skeevy. I cannot believe it.
The season premiere is on Monday, Sept. 20. The first couple will be sent home the following day.
Here's the full list of pairings:
