Now that the new cast of Dancing With the Stars has been revealed, onto the next big question: Who's dancing with Maks, Cheryl, Karina, Mark and the other pros?

The matches were announced Wednesday morning on Good Morning America:

• American soccer star Hope Solo will attempt to fill the dancing shoes of season 12 finalist Kirstie Alley alongside Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who hoped to dance with the goalie.

• The show's first transgender contestant, Chaz Bono, will dance with Lacey Schwimmer.



• Soap star and Iraqi war veteran J.R. Martinez has been paired with seasoned Dancing vet Karina Smirnoff.

• HLN's Nancy Grace will face the judges with Irish dance pro Tristan MacManus.

• Reality star Rob Kardashian has the honor of performing with two-time Dancing champion Cheryl Burke.

• Los Angeles Laker Ron Artest, who is dancing for his cancer-survivor daughter, has Peta Murgatroyd as his partner.

"Terrified" actress Ricki Lake will hold hands with returning pro Derek Hough, who last danced away with a mirror-ball trophy with season 11 winner Jennifer Grey.



George Clooney's ex-girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis will perform with Maksim's brother Val Chmerkovskiy.

• Style star Carson Kressley will dazzle on the dance floor with pro Anna Trebunskaya.

• Musician Chynna Phillips will have Kate Gosselin's former partner Tony Dovolani by her side.

• Actor David Arquette will be in good hands: his partner is reigning champ Kym Johnson, who took the mirror-ball trophy with Hines Ward in May.

• And reality star Kristin Cavallari and two-time champ Mark Ballas will hit the ballroom together when the show returns Sept. 19 on ABC.
