Dancing with the Stars Season 8 Cast

UPDATE: ABC has announced the official Dancing with the Stars Season 8 Cast.  Also, check out my suggested couples for Dancing with the Stars 2009.

UPDATE 2: You can watch the video announcing the Dancing with the Stars Season 8 Winner.

ABC has announced that Dancing with the Stars will premiere Monday March 9th 2009 at 8pm. Of course, this begs the question “who will be the next stars to show their dance moves?”

The cast probably won’t be announced for a couple months. Dancing with the Stars hasn’t even decided which professional dancers will be on the show. At least, Julianne Hough is still negotiating whether she should appear in the Spring or wait until next Fall. However, it’s fun to create our own list of stars dancing on season 8 of Dancing with the Stars.

Here’s my list of stars:
WOMEN
Celine Dion
Ellen Degeneres
Alicia Silverstone
Heather Locklear
Candace Cameron Burre
Steffi Graf

MEN
Jimmy Kimmel
Tom Selleck
Jackie Chan
Charles Barkley
Bret Favre
Bill Cosby

Let’s see who your list of stars would be. The crazy thing was that as I started this list I thought of literally hundreds of people that would be interesting on the show. Doesn’t seem like the show will have a hard time finding stars for a while.

Pictures from Dancing with the Stars Finale

As I mentioned in a previous post, my wife and I got the tremendous opportunity to be able to go to the Dancing with the Stars finale. It was quite the experience. Here are a few pictures from the event.

I’ll post some more pictures tomorrow and hopefully get around to posting some other comments about the taping of the Dancing with the Stars finale as well. Also, I’ll be posting some of the other pictures we took to the Pure Hough blog.
