Official Dancing with the Stars Seaon 9 Partners

Well, we knew that the official list of Dancing with the Stars season 9 partners was going to be announced today. However, it was completely anticlimactic, because we’d already told you about all the partners already. Mad props to Heidi and the other readers who were able to find all the DWTS season 9 partners before they announced it. Nice try ABC, but between twitter and the Paparazzi it couldn’t be suppressed.

For those that might have missed all of our postings about the DWTS season 9 partners, here’s the complete and official list of DWTS partners:

Natalie Coughlin with Alec Mazo
Mark Dacascos with Lacey Schwimmer
Tom DeLay with Cheryl Burke
Aaron Carter and Karina Smirnoff
Macy Gray with Jonathan Roberts
Ashley Hamilton with Edyta Sliwinska
Melissa Joan Hart with Mark Ballas
Kathy Ireland with Tony Dovolani
Michael Irvin with Anna Demidova
Joanna Krupa with Derek Hough
Chuck Liddell with Anna Trebunskaya
Debi Mazar with Maksim Chmerkovskiy
Mya with Dmitry Chaplin
Kelly Osbourne with Louis van Amstel
Donny Osmond with Kym Johnson
Louie Vito with Chelsie Hightower

Watch for our DWTS season 9 power rankings of all the partnerships coming very soon. The season is just around the corner!! We’ll also have a poll soon to let you vote for your favorite Dancing with the Stars season 9 couple.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS Season 9 Partner Prognostications – The Men

This one is a bit easier because we have solid info on three of the men.  Well, as solid as you can get from the net. :-)

  • Ashley Hamilton has Edyta, according to his father
  • Donny Osmond has Kym Johnson, according to a tweet from his son
  • Tom Delay has Cheryl Burke – can’t confirm this one myself, read it on the net

I lied – it’s not easier. That leaves us with five stars that need pros.  Below is my rationale – I’ll update as we find more info.  I have to confess that a few of these make no sense to me because we have some really tall celebs with the remaining pros who…aren’t.

  • Chuck Liddell with Anna Demidova – Chuck is 6’2″ and Anna D, at 5’10″ is the tallest pro
  • Aaron Carter with Karina – based soley on his “I love curly hair” comment on Twitter. She was very curly last I saw. UPDATE: Aaron and Karina have been confirmed partners
  • Louie Vito with Chelsie Hightower – shortest celeb at 5’5″ with the shortest pro at 5’2″
  • Mark Decascos with Lacey – Next shortest male celeb with the next shortest pro
  • And that leaves Michael Irvin… and a female pro that I’m not sure of. Is Anna Trebunskaya back??  If it’s someone else and they are taller, that would be helpful to know. :-)

No clue if these are right – didn’t make sense as I was working on it.
