Kellie Pickler, Wynona Judd and 'Real Housewives' legend Lisa Vanderpump have joined the line-up of ballroom dancing competition 'Dancing With the Stars'.
Kellie Pickler, Wynona Judd and Lisa Vanderpump will compete on the new season of 'Dancing With the Stars'.
ABC announced that the trio - along with a host of other celebrities - will all take to the dancefloor for the show's sixteenth season next month.
'American Idol' contestant Kellie, country singer Wynona and 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' breakout star Lisa will be joined by London 2012 gymnast Aly Raisman, comedian Andy Dick and American football player Jacoby Jones.
Other celebrities include boxer Victor Ortiz, Disney actress Zendaya Coleman, 'General Hospital' actor Ingo Rademacher, Olympic figure skater Dorothy Hamill and comedian D.L. Hughley.
Heartthrob professional dancer Derek Hough is set to return, dancing with Kellie, while Season 15 winner Tony Dovolani will dance with Wynona.
Three new professional dancers are set to join the latest season - Gleb Savchenko, paired with Lisa, Sharna Burgess, paired with Andy and Lindsay Arnold, paired with Victor.
Country star Kellie revealed that she was coerced into putting on her dancing shoes by her grandfather because it's his favourite TV show.
She told Country Weekly: ''He was eavesdropping on my phone conversation about doing the show and he told me that if I didn't do it, then I wasn't his favourite granddaughter anymore. Funny thing is, I'm his only granddaughter. I'm his only grandchild! It's his favourite show, though. I think he's more excited than anybody about it.''
'Dancing With the Stars' begins on March 28.
