The official announcement won't be made until Tuesday's "Good Morning America" broadcast on ABC. But TMZ is already reporting that Season 5 "American Idol" contestant Kellie Pickler will appear on the upcoming Season 16 of "DWTS," along with fellow country singer Wynonna Judd, current "Bachelor" hunk Sean Lowe and Olympic champ Aly Raisman.

Bing: More on Kellie Pickler | "Dancing With the Stars"

If so, that would make this the first time an "American Idol" contestant has ever competed on "Dancing With the Stars." (It also could explain why those asteroids almost ended the world last week.)

In addition, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones was revealed to be a competitor in a mid-Oscars commercial on Sunday. And Victor Ortiz has confirmed his participation to his hometown newspaper.

Are you happy with those choices? Who would you like to see dancing next season?

Season 16 of "Dancing With the Stars" premieres Monday, March 18, at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

Well she been drop form her record label.  She pretty much a has been now or a never was country artist.  Anything to stay in the lime lights.  When a music artist goes on DWTS it pretty much tells you it over!!!

Sean Combs would be great on DWTS, great personality and he can dance!

Hoda Kotb and Madeline Stowe would also be fun.

More NBA players rather than NFL.

I don't even watch DWTS, and I don't know the others, but I would bet she stays a long, long time, and might win.   She has a HUGE amount of country fans, and if they all vote, the party is over for the rest!!!    Nice girl, from what I can see, and that will win the hearts of others too.

Anyone who hasn't seen Kellie Pickler before will be in for a very pleasant surprise.   She is a huge supporter of our troups and has been on a total of six USO tours so far.    Last fall she shaved her head in support of her friend who has been undergoing chemo for breast cancer.   Kellie Pickler is a very special and talented young lady.

SNOOOOOOZZZZEEEEE    Who the CRAP are these people???  Looks like it's going to be the most BORING season of DWTS so far. They better have someone good for me to even give it a chance. Guess I'll find out tomorrow, because so far, with these picks......I have better things to do.....wash dishes, pick up after my dogs, watch grass name it.
