An article from People:

Dancing with the Stars Will Debut All-Star Season

What happens to a newly made ballroom dancer after the disco ball trophy?

Usually, the top Dancing with the Stars contestants return to obscurity – er, their glamorous lifestyles – and we never see them on the dance floor again. But now the show is looking to change that.

ABC's entertainment president Paul Lee confirmed to reporters that he "can't talk about the casting yet, but I'd love to see some of the fan favorites from the past seasons come back," EW.com reports.

"We've had many favorites over the 14 seasons that we've got. So, fingers crossed. We're out casting now, and I hope we come in with a really interesting cast of people who our audience is passionate about."

Since ABC has not selected former cast mates to return, tell us in the comments who you'd like to see back in the ballroom.

Dancing with the Stars All Star Cast To Be Announced

Mondays, 8:00 - 10:00 p.m., ET

ABC is set to announce its Dancing With the Stars All Star cast on the morning of Friday, July 27.
Lips are tight and rumors are few, but we’re still hearing names of a few celebrities who are expected to return to the ballroom: Melissa Rycroft (Season 8), Joey Fatone (Season 4) and Pamela Anderson (Season 10) are likely to return when the show resumes this fall. Gilles Marini name has not been heard but it is suspected he will return.

“Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” marks the first time prior contestants will return for another shot at the coveted mirror ball trophy for a very special All-Star season. Week to week these “Dancing with the Stars” alumni will once again compete to impress the judges and the audience at home in order to be the last pair standing in this live ballroom competition. And every week the couple with the lowest combined judges’ scores and viewer votes for their performance will be sent home, live, on “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars the Results Show.”

“Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” and “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars the Results Show” returns this season with new surprises and all the performance elements viewers have come to know and love, as well as musical performances from top recording artists. Also returning is “Macy’s Stars of Dance,” featuring some of the best choreographers and performers from different styles of dance who offer viewers performances that represent the peak of achievement in their genres. The show also welcomes the return of the “AT&T Spotlight Performance,” which features and celebrates people whose lives have been changed forever by dance.

Dancing with the Stars is hosted by Tom Bergeron (“America’s Funniest Home Videos”) and Brooke Burke-Charvet (“Dancing with the Stars” Season Seven Champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned Ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

'Dancing With the Stars' all-stars rumors: Melissa Rycroft, Joey Fatone, plus a twist

ABC is set to announce its Dancing With the Stars all-star cast on Friday morning so you know what that means: Time to check the rumor mill!

The industry whisperers have been quieter than usual this cycle, but we’re still hearing names of a few celebrities who are expected to return to the ballroom: Melissa Rycroft (Season 8), Joey Fatone (Season 4) and Pamela Anderson (Season 10) are likely to don sequins when the show resumes this fall.

Also, we hear Executive Producer Conrad Green is injecting a new twist to the casting process this year:

ABC will let fans pick a returning star. The network will announce the names of three former Dancing contestants (we’re hearing Carson Kressley is one of them) and let viewers vote on which celebrity gets the final spot on the show.

And what about Bristol Palin? With her Lifetime show bombing isn’t she ready to return to the reality TV big leagues? No intel there yet. Though we’re hearing that you shouldn’t expect another attention-getting Dancing alum, Stacy Keibler, to take a break from George Clooney to hit the dance floor anytime soon.
An ABC rep says the network does not comment on casting rumors. Check back on Friday for the full official list.

Season seven competitor Misty May-Treanor has already campaigned for a slot on the All-Star season and Kate Gosselin is also rumoured to be returning.

Chelsea Kane, who finished third in season 12, has suggested that she likely won't appear on Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars because it might not top her initial time on the series.

Kane explained in May: "It was such an amazing experience and I had such a good time and I got so lucky that it would be fun to go back and try it again.

"But at the same [time], it's like, the sequel is never as good as the [original] movie."

Dancing with the Stars returns this fall on ABC.

They need to pick the best of the best. I don't need someone who's going to stay around if they're going to constantly suck at the dances.

KIRSTIE ALLEY - Kirstie Alley has emerged as one of the great actresses of her generation, proving time and again that she is capable of great depth and range, as well as possessing comedic timing second to none. Alley's work in television has earned her seven Golden Globe and eight Emmy nominations, winning one Golden Globe, two Emmys and three People's Choice Awards. She co-wrote and starred in Showtime's critically acclaimed comedy "Fat Actress," and played the title character, as well as serving as executive producer, on the NBC sitcom "Veronica's Closet." In 1994 Alley showcased her dramatic range starring in the CBS TV movie "David's Mother," for which she won her second Emmy. In 1987 she joined the cast of the long-running hit NBC sitcom, "Cheers," as the neurotic Rebecca Howe. Alley received critical accolades and won both an Emmy (r) for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series and Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Comedy Series in 1991. She made her movie debut in 1982 in "Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan," in which she played beautiful Vulcan officer Lieutenant Saavik. In 1999 Alley starred in the dark comedy film "Drop Dead Gorgeous," a cult-classic mockumentary that follows the contestants in a beauty pageant in Minnesota. She starred in Woody Allen's "Deconstructing Harry," and alongside John Travolta in the hit films "Look Who's Talking," "Look Who's Talking Too" and "Look Who's Talking Now." Some of her other film credits include "Shoot to Kill," "Summer School," "For Richer or Poorer" and "Champions." In 1995 Alley was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She served as the spokesperson for Pier One from 2000 to 2004, Jenny Craig from 2005 to 2008 and is currently the Poise Fairy.

PAMELA ANDERSON - A multi-talented model, actress, entrepreneur, writer, philanthropist, activist, spokesperson, designer and mother, Pamela Anderson is one of the most diversely talented stars in history. Anderson follows her passions, whether it's "Learning French in fast cars..." (A play she has written and will produce) or lending herself, with complete faith, as a death defying magician's assistant in Las Vegas. As a film, television and musical theatre star, Anderson's resume speaks for itself, from the iconic hit "Baywatch" to the smash film "Borat," she regularly impacts popular culture. She has appeared on the cover of countless magazines throughout the globe, including the cover of Playboy Magazine 14 times in America alone. Beyond media, Anderson is an esteemed art collector of the likes of Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha, Jeff Koons, Marilyn Minter, Mel Ramos, Santé D'orazio, Terry Richardson, Luca Pizzaroni, Marc Quinn and David LaChapelle. After a fulfilling experience building her Malibu home, Anderson has also branched into design, currently heading up ATHASI, a firm with partner Josh Chrisant that specializes in green architecture. She is also appearing in multiple campaigns for her comrade and mentor, the legendary Dame Vivienne Westwood. As a philanthropist, her work and dedication is unmatched in the celebrity community. A long time supporter of PETA, Anderson has also lent her time and resources to causes such as JP/HRO, Waves For Water, USO, Cool Earth, Sea Shepard Conservation Society (she recently flew to Germany to defend Captain Paul Watson for his wrongful imprisonment), and The MAC Viva Glam 5 campaign raising awareness for AIDS testing around the world. Anderson is also producing a documentary series with activist Paul Manley in Canada entitled "Whatever It Takes," showcasing people who dedicate their lives to a cause at all costs. Full of surprises, and always one to pursue new passions, she recently excelled as a participant and competitor on the smash-hit ABC series "Dancing with the Stars." Her hard work and talents caught the attention of the musical theatre community, and she is on the cusp of announcing a project that will serve as the next chapter in the career of this powerful woman, devoted mother, sex symbol and style icon who continues to inspire fans across the globe.

HELIO CASTRONEVES - One of the most popular personalities in all of sports, Helio Castroneves - Team Penske's elder statesman - has accomplished much in his illustrious career, yet he remains passionate in his desire to achieve much more.

One of the two active drivers to have earned the distinction of being a three-time winner of the Indianapolis 500 and the only race car driver ever to become a "Dancing with the Stars" champion, Castroneves in many ways is in a league of his own. He has parlayed his foray in the entertainment world into working as an occasional correspondent for "Entertainment Tonight" and, in the fall of 2010, was invited back to the set of "Dancing with the Stars" to serve as a judge on the show after being voted as one of the top-10 best dancers from the first 10 seasons of the show. Castroneves' celebrity status has afforded him an array of opportunities worldwide, the highlight of which came in 2004, when he had the once-in-a-lifetime experience of a private audience with Pope John Paul II while visiting Vatican City. His garage boasts the 2001 Indianapolis 500 Pace Vehicle Oldsmobile Bravada; a 50th Anniversary Special Edition Chevrolet Corvette, which he received for winning the 2002 Indianapolis 500; and his latest addition, a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro Indianapolis 500 Pace Car.

As announced, the three celebrity alumnus competing to be the "Viewer's Choice: All-Star" are:

SABRINA BRYAN -- Sabrina Bryan was a member of the multi-platinum recording act, The Cheetah Girls, as well as a star of the hugely successful Disney Channel movie of the same name as Dorinda. "The Cheetah Girls" movie debuted in August of 2003, breaking the ratings record as the most successful Disney Channel movie in history and selling two million units of the soundtrack. Bryan continued to reprise her role in "The Cheetah Girls 2: When in Spain," in August of 2006, and with "The Cheetah Girls 3," set in India in 2008. As a recording group with Adrienne Bailon and Kiely Williams, The Cheetah Girls had one of the top ten most successful tours of 2006, selling out 87 dates and becoming one of the top 5 merchandise selling acts in history. Their first album as a recording group was "Cheetahlicious Christmas," which was released at the end of 2005. The Cheetah Girls have also been featured on the Chicken Little soundtrack with their rendition of "Shake a Tailfeather" and on various Disneymania compilations, many of which have been certified Gold. One of Bryan's solo projects is the fitness-dance DVD called BYOU and the sequel BYOU 2, in which she was the star and co-producer. BYOU was originally released in early 2006 and has gone double-platinum. Bryan is currently developing film, television, internet and book properties to star in and produce. Her endeavors include co-writing the book Princess of Gossip with top Young Adult author Julia DeVillers for Pocket/MTV Books, a recurring role on the new Disney Channel animated series, "Fish Hooks," as the voice of Pamela Hamster, and she hosted three seasons of ABC.com's web series, "Backstage with the Stars," covering behind-the-scenes of "Dancing with the Stars." She is currently starring on-stage in the "Dancing with the Stars: Live in Las Vegas" at The New Tropicana.

CARSON KRESSLEY - Emmy-winning television star, celebrity stylist, author and fashion designer Carson Kressley is out to make over the world. Kressley was a season 13 "fan-favorite" on ABC's "Dancing with The Stars" and recently headlined as the host of "Dancing with the Stars: Live in Las Vegas." In 2011 Kressley starred in "Carson-Nation," a one-hour reality show for OWN, where he traveled to small towns throughout the U.S., transforming lives one person at a time with his signature heart, humor and style. Previously he helmed Lifetime's critically acclaimed show, "How to Look Good Naked," and earned a primetime Emmy for his role on Bravo's breakout hit series, "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy." He was a frequent style contributor on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," where millions of viewers accessed his expertise, style and wit. He can also been seen as a style contributor on ABC's "Good Morning America" and "Live with Kelly!" Kressley recently debuted his signature line of women's sportswear and accessories, "Love, Carson," which is known for its easy, instant, affordable glamour and is available exclusively at Shop NBC. He is a New York Times best-selling author with three books to his credit, including a children's book, You're Different and That's Super, promoting diversity and tolerance. A women's style guide is in the works for 2012. A strong supporter of many philanthropic causes, Kressley uses his celebrity to advance different concerns such as The Trevor Project, The Human Rights Campaign, The Empire State Pride Agenda, LIGALY, GLSEN, AIDS WALK, The Ali Forney Center and the Al D. Rodriguez Liver Foundation. Kressley is also a trustee on the board of The True Colors Fund and The American Saddlebred Museum. He is the founding donor of the first scholarship program for GLBT youth in his hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania. When Kressley is not starring on stage or screen, he can be found astride one of his American Saddlebred show horses, with which he has achieved World Champion status. Kressley resides in New York City.

KYLE MASSEY - Although only 20 years old, Kyle Massey is already an industry veteran. A near champion on Season 11 of "Dancing with the Stars," he finished second with his partner, Lacey Schwimmer. Massey is most known for his acting role as Cory Baxter on the Disney Channel's No. 1 hit sitcom, "Cory in the House." He originated the role of Cory on Disney's "That's So Raven," which produced 100 episodes, the first in Disney's history. Acting credits also include a leading role in the Disney Channel's Original Movie, "Life is Ruff," a recurring role on the animated TV series "American Dragon: Jake Long," and most recently as Milo, the very high energy, fun loving fish on Disney Channel's hit animated TV series, "Fish Hooks." For his work on "That's So Raven" and "Cory in the House," Massey received an NAACP Image Award nomination. The Georgia native counts among his other talents snowboarding, riding his motorcycle and golfing. For his prowess in the latter sport, the youngster won first place in the National Minority Junior Golf Tournament in 2003. He has participated in several golf tournaments, most recently the White House Golf Tournament, where he placed 3rd. In addition to writing and producing his own music, he also sings the main title theme songs on "Cory in the House," "Yin! Yang! Yo!," and performed the title track for Walt Disney Picture's "Underdog." Massey currently splits his time between Atlanta and Los Angeles, with his parents and older brother, Christopher, who is also an actor on Nickelodeons' "Zoey 101." He and his brother made TV History when both "That's So Raven" and "Zoey 101" were nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Children's Programming in 2005, the first for siblings in the same year. Massey is passionate about helping the community and lends his time to the Starkey Hearing Foundation, and he just recently returned from South Africa, Madagascar and Mauritius where he helped to fit kids with hearing aids. He is currently starring on-stage in the "Dancing with the Stars: Live in Las Vegas" at The New Tropicana.

The three contestants competing to be the "Viewers' Choice: All-Star" will kick-off their campaign with their first television interview live in-studio on "Good Morning America," Monday, July 30.

Thinking otherwise. Would like to see Sabrina (she got royally screwed in her season), but I think the fans want the entertainment factor - so I'm thinking it's Carson.

All 13 couples will hit the stage performing either the Cha Cha or the Foxtrot to impress the judges and viewers at home, hoping they're not the first couple sent home.

The live two-hour season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show," TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET), will kick off with live interviews with Tom and the cast, offering an in-depth look at why each celeb has decided to return for another chance at winning the coveted mirror ball trophy.

Their stunning duet will be accompanied by pro dancers Valentin Chmerkovskiy and Anna Trebunskaya. Also taking to the "Dancing with the Stars" stage is 19 year-old pop powerhouse Cher Lloyd, performing her hit single, "Want You Back." Her latest album, "Sticks + Stones," releases October 2nd.

Tuesday night's exciting lineup continues with the season's first "Macy's Stars of Dance" performance, a futuristic standoff featuring some of the world's most talented dancers battling for dance floor supremacy. The performance is choreographed by Shannon Mather, spotlighting Blake McGrath, Ian Eastwood and Tyne Stecklein leading their groups in an epic performance. We will also tease week 3's "Iconic Dance Night" with a medley of iconic routines from seasons past, performed by The Troupe as well as talented dancers Anya Garnis, Jaymz Tuaileva, Lacey and Benji Schwimmer. And before night's end, the second couple of the season will be eliminated.

Katherine Jenkins is the world's most prolific classical crossover artist. The Welsh mezzo soprano has sold in excess of 7 million albums since launching her career in 2004. An internationally recognized figure, at the age of 32 Jenkins has become an ambassador and inspiration for millions of people around the world. When she was still only 23, she signed what was said to be the biggest ever UK classical recording deal; she has broken records, becoming the fastest selling mezzo soprano ever, has released eight studio albums, has won two Classical BRIT Awards and broken countless records, with her albums going platinum around the world. Cherished as one of Britain's favorite singers, Jenkins has now become one of its greatest musical exports. She most recently performed at the Queen's Jubilee and was an ambassador for the London Olympic athletes this past summer. She is currently working on completing her first ever Christmas album," This is Christmas," in stores October 30.

Placido Domingo, world renowned multi-Grammy(r) Award winning singer, conductor and administrator, has sung 140 different roles, more than any other tenor in the annals of music, with more than 3600 career performances. His more than 100 recordings of complete operas, compilations of arias & duets and crossover discs have earned him 12 Grammy(r) Awards, including three Latin Grammys, and he has made more than 50 music videos and won two Emmy Awards. In addition to three feature opera films - "Carmen," "La Traviata" and "Otello" -- he voiced the role of Monte in "Beverly Hills Chihuahua," played himself on "The Simpsons," and his telecast of "Tosca" from the authentic settings in Rome was seen by more than one billion people in 117 countries. Domingo has conducted more than 450 opera performances and symphonic concerts. In the 2012-13 season, he will add two new baritone roles to his repertoire, Francesco Foscari in "I Due Foscari" in Los Angeles, and Germont in "La Traviata" during his 45th season at the Metropolitan Opera. He is also preparing to release his first non classical album in 20 years, called "Songs," out October 16th, featuring duets with Katherine Jenkins, Harry Connick Jr., Josh Groban, Megan Hilty, Chris Botti and others.

19-year-old pop powerhouse Cher Lloyd drops her U.S. debut, "Sticks + Stones," October 2nd. With a new single, "Oath" ft. Dr. Luke's Sony/RCA newest signing, Becky G, and a new video shot in LA by Hannah Lux Davis set to premiere next week, Lloyd is poised to become America's newest (and sassiest) pop star. Her U.S. debut single, "Want U Back," was a certified smash, generating more than 22 million YouTube views and exceeding 1.4 million in sales. It introduced Lloyd to legions of fans who turned up in droves during her promotional tour this summer, causing chaos in a dozen cities and proving that she's far more than a reality television star. While she gained prominence in her native England as a contestant on "The X Factor UK," it was her one-of-a-kind talent and take-no-prisoners attitude that kept her in the public eye. After the show, she signed with Simon Cowell's label, Syco, and went on to achieve major success in the UK, where her first single went straight to No. 1. The British version of "Sticks + Stones," which varies from the U.S. release, entered the UK charts at No. 4.

Hosted by Emmy Award winner Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke-Charvet ("Dancing with the Stars" Season Seven Champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned Ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
