Gladys Knight Heads Up New 'Dancing With The Stars' Line-up


Gladys Knight is perhaps the biggest name to be announced in the latest line-up for Dancing With The Stars as the long running reality contest reaches its 14th season - a whopping feat, and testament to its durability considering they've run two seasons every year since 2006. Knight was nothing short of a hit factory in the 60s and 70s during Motown's boom time, carving out a career for herself first with The Pips and then going solo to considerable success. She remains one of the most well known names of the Motown era.

Other singers involved include Gavin Degraw, Jack Wagner and opera singer Katherine Jenkins. As ever though, it's the sports stars who many will be looking at to bring the competitive edge, and with Tennis great Martina Navratilova and Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver in the line-up you know that they'll likely be among the toughest competitors the show has ever seen. A host of actors will be involved too, including former child star Melissa Gilbert and Cuban actor WILLIAM LEVY. If were looking for the comedy entry this year meanwhile, one might look at Sherri Shepherd, co-host of 'The View,' though she may of course surprise us all.

Completing the line-up for this season are 'Extra' host Maria Menounos and The Disney Channel's ROSHON FEGAN.
