It’s the moment all you reality dance competition fans have been waiting for!  The official matchups for the newest season of “Dancing With the Stars”!

Audiences have been waiting for weeks to find out who the all-star celebrities will be paired with this time around, and this morning, ABC revealed the list:

Bristol Palin (reality TV star) paired with Mark Ballas (her season 11 partner)
Shawn Johnson (Olympic gymnast and former winner) paired with Derek Hough
–Kirstie Alley (actress) paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy (her season 12 partner)
Emmitt Smith (NFL running back) paired with Cheryl Burke (his season three partner)
Gilles Marini (actor) paired with Peta Murgatroyd
–Drew Lachey (actor/singer) paired with Anna Trebunskay
–Pamela Anderson
(actress) paired with Tristan MacManus
Apolo Anton Ohno (Olympic speed skater and former winner) paired with Karina Smirnof
Helio Castroneves (Indy 500 winner and former winner) paired with Chelsie Hightower
Joey Fatone (actor/singer) paired with Kym Johnson (his season four partner)
Kelly Monaco (actress and former winner) paired with Val Chmerkokvski
Melissa Rycroft paired with Tony Dovolani (her former partner)

Something tells me that those pairings of all stars, mixed with the anticipation for who will take the coveted number 13 spot (fans are still voting until August 24th for either Carson Kressley, Kyle Massy or Sabrina Bryan) will lead to one hell of a season!
