Get ready to bust a move —Dancing With The Stars is back with another star-studded cast.

Following weeks of speculation and rumors, the season 16 lineup was revealed Tuesday morning during a special presentation on Good Morning America.

From wise-cracking comedians to record-breaking athletes, the race for the coveted mirrorball trophy features a wide array of famous faces guaranteed to sweep you off your feet with their ballroom skills.

So who made the cut?

Here’s the official list of the celebrity contestants and their pro pairs:

Wynonna Judd, country music legend (partner: Tony Dovolani)

D.L. Hughley, actor, political commentator and comedian (partner: Cheryl Burke)

Jacoby Jones, wide receiver for the Super Bowl-winning Baltimore Ravens (partner: Karina Smirnoff)

Lisa Vanderpump, star of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (partner: new pro Gleb Savchenko)

Andy Dick, comedian (partner: Sharna Burgess)

Victor Ortiz, boxer (partner: new pro Lindsay Arnold)

Zendaya Coleman, Disney Channel star (partner: Val Chmerkovskiy)

Aly Raisman, Olympic gold medalist gymnast (partner: Mark Ballas)

Ingo Rademacher, soap opera actor (partner: Kym Johnson)

Kellie Pickler, former American Idol contestant and country singer (partner: Derek Hough)

Dorothy Hamill, Olympic skater (partner: Tristan McManus)

One name not on the list of returning professional hoofers: Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The 33-year-old is leaving for (hopefully) green pastures, saying in a statement: “I just want to set the record straight to all of my amazing fans that I will unfortunately not be returning for this season of Dancing with the Stars.”

He continued: “I’ve been a pro dancer on the show for about seven years now and am eager to explore other opportunities that have been made possible because of Dancing with the Stars. I’m going to take this time to dive into producing and acting, while fulfilling my sponsorship obligations.”

Season 16 of DWTS — sans Max — premieres on Monday, March 18 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
