All those who were anxiously waiting for season 14 of "Dancing with the stars" will be much more excited now, as ABC has announced the premiere date and the names of the celebrities participating in the show.

Season 14 will premiere on Monday, March 19, from 8 to 10 p.m. with the first "DWTS" Results Show scheduled for the next week on Tuesday, March 27, from 9 to 10 p.m. The cast for season 14 was announced this morning on "Good Morning America".

So who are going to mesmerize their fans with super cool performances and scintillating sequences? The list of "DWTS 2012" celebrities start with the famous Urkel, Laura Ingalls and a renowned tennis player. Urkel was a character played by actor Jaleel White on the 90s sitcom "Family Matters".

Amongst other participants are Jack Wagner of "Melrose Place" fame, TV star Melissa Gilbert, who became a household name as Laura Ingalls on "Little House on the Prairie", "The View" co-host Sherri Shepherd, tennis legend Martina Navratilova, TV host Maria Menounos, Motown great Gladys Knight, opera singer Katherine Jenkins, Disney star Roshon Fegan, NFL wide receiver Donald Driver, singer Gavin DeGraw and "Telenovela" actor William Levy.

As always, "DWTS" will be putting together a random yet interesting assortment of people together.

All the celebrities were looking forward to finding out about their professional partners in the competition. Defending pro-champion Karina Smirnoff, who won her first mirror ball trophy last season with celeb J.R. Martinez, is partnered up this time with singer Gavin DeGraw. Pro Cheryl Burke, who was Rob Kardashian’s partner in season 13, will now pair up with William Levy, and the most talked-about Derek Hough, who has won on the show three times, will be paring up with Maria Menounos.
