Dancing with the Stars 2009 season 9 gets underway in September. Before that, however, the Dancing with the Stars 2009 season 9 contestants were announced this morning on “Good Morning America,” and include a very diverse and interesting group of luminaries.
People.com reports that the Dancing with the Stars 2009 roster includes reality TV star Kelly Osbourne, singer Donny Osmond, actress Melissa Joan Hart, singer Mya, singer Macy Gray, actress Debi Mazar, actor-comedian Ashley Hamilton, model Joanna Krupa, Olympic swimmer Natalie Coughlin, football player Michael Irvin, model Kathy Ireland, “Iron Chef” star Mark Dacascos, former House of Representatives Majority Leader Tom DeLay, snowboarder Louie Vito, ultimate fighting champion Chuck Lidell and singer Aaron Carter.
As a fan of DWTS, I was particularly interested in learning who the contestants for season 9 would end up being, and am excited by the diversity of talent and the interesting collection of people that constitute Dancing with the Stars 2009.
But of all the aforementioned Dancing with the Stars 2009 contenders, I am most looking forward to seeing the following:
Donny Osmond – Donny Osmond, who is a contemporary of mine, is part of one of the most famous show business families in the history of the entertainment industry. He first achieved great fame singing with The Osmonds, and then went on to forge a solo singing career. But this was not before starring with his sister Marie in the “Donny and Marie Show”, which aired on ABC between 1976 and 1979. I’ve always been drawn to Donny’s sunny disposition and I very much look forward to seeing him hoof it up on Dancing with the Stars 2009.
Kathy Ireland – Kathy Ireland kicked off her career as a fashion model and has since gone on to head up her own brand marketing company, Kathy Ireland Worldwide. She has the distinction of being featured in Sports Illustrated’s storied Swimsuit Issue for an astonishing 13 consecutive years. I very much look forward to seeing Kathy Ireland dance up a storm (while rocking skimpy outfits, hopefully) on DWTHS.
Melissa Joan Hart – Former “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch” star Melissa Joan Hart has recently lost quite a bit of weight and is looking extremely hot. If you are so inclined, click the link at the bottom of this article and take a gander at Melissa Hart’s new 113-lb bikini body, which she so generously shared with readers of People. If we’re lucky, we’ll be treated to a wardrobe malfunction or two when Melissa Joan Hart hits the stage on Dancing with the Stars 2009.
Host Tom Bergeron told “Good Morning America” that in the middle of the season, there will be a twist: there will be three back-to-back double elimination rounds. As well, four new dance routines will be introduced: the Bolero, the Charleston, the Two Step and the Lambada.
Good luck to all the new contestants on Dancing with the Stars 2009 season 9.
