#HuskyNation or #OnWisconsin: Which Celebs Are Rooting for Which Final Four Teams?

Originally posted 04/04/2014 12:15PM

With March Madness whittling down to its Final Four (Connecticut, Florida, Kentucky and Wisconsin, for those just tuning in now), sports fans have moved from cheering on the success of their own brackets to rooting for their favorites of the quartet of teams remaining. Celebrities are no different. Though Louisville's own Jennifer Lawrence may be left without a team to root for, other members of the A-list have fared far luckier.

From former athletes to proud graduates to bandwagoners, let's run down the stars cheering for each Final Four team during the 2014 tournament.

Peta Murgatroyd's DWTS Blog: 'It's Great Having Maks Back in the Ballroom'

Peta Murgatroyd is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 14 – only her second season on the series – with Donald Driver. The Australia native will blog for PEOPLE about competing with Big Time Rush band member James Maslow during the show's 18th season.

There have been so many changes on the show this season, but I'm happy with them.

I think Erin [Andrews] did an amazing job at the premiere. I think she adds like this girl-next-door vibe to the show. I think Dancing with the Stars wanted to create a new audience this season and really liven it up a little more. I think she's helping to do that. Her interviews are great and she's really down to earth. She's really conversational.

Former contestant Erin Andrews is adjusting quickly to her new duties as Dancing with the Stars co-host.

Going off of a rave review from PEOPLE's TV critic – who says the sports broadcaster is right at home on ABC's hit competition show – Andrews, too, told PEOPLE, "It's crazy because it feels kind of like family and I'm back, you know, to where I kind of grew up."

But even so, Brooke Burke-Charvet's replacement is still getting the hang of things.

Peta Murgatroyd: My DWTS Partner James Maslow Is 'Great'-Looking and 'Charming'

Peta Murgatroyd is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 14 – only her second season on the series – with Donald Driver. The Australia native will blog for PEOPLE about competing with Big Time Rush band member James Maslow during the show's 18th season.

This has been the most work I've ever had in the off-season. I didn't stop working. I was touring and making appearances and attending charity events. I didn't get any break or holiday or anything like that, but that's how I like it. I love being busy. It felt like this season crept up so quickly. The premiere is right around the corner and I feel like I just met James.

I think there's a very eclectic bunch of people this season and, so far, everybody has such a nice personality and demeanor. There's not one of them who isn't really, really lovely to work with. I think having three Olympians will be amazing for the competition. They're going to make everyone work a little bit harder to catch up to them.

Since being shockingly replaced by Erin Andrews as the co-host of ABC's hit show for its 18th season (which kicks off on Monday), Brooke Burke-Charvet "has been very encouraging to Erin," fellow host Tom Bergeron, 58, told PEOPLE on Tuesday.

"She and Erin have exchanged phone calls and voicemail messages. Erin was very complimentary to Brooke. So, in the midst of a difficult situation, there's a whole lot of maturity going on."

Charlie White & Meryl Davis Will Face Off on Dancing with the Stars

Originally posted 03/04/2014 08:25AM

From former child stars to young musicians, the 18th season of Dancing with the Stars is filled with an eclectic mix of competitors. But the most interesting may be the casting of Meryl Davis and Charlie White.

Davis, 27, and White, 26, ruled the rink at last month's Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, winning the gold medal in ice dancing. Now they'll battle in the ballroom – but against each other for the mirror ball trophy. White will dance with Sharna Burgess, while Davis will shimmy with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Valentin's brother, who is back after taking last season off.

The 12 new contestants on ABC's hit show were announced Tuesday morning on Good Morning America.

See the rest of the competitors below:

Four years after her emotional exit from Dancing with the Stars, Erin Andrews will be strapping on her high heels again and returning to the ballroom, this time as a co-host, replacing Brooke Burke-Charvet.

In an exclusive interview, the sports reporter, 35, tells PEOPLE she knows it's going to be an adjustment – both for her and for those who are fans of Burke-Charvet.

"I don't blame the audience at all. How could you?" she says. "I know that I have huge shoes to fill. I'm a fan of Brooke. She was very wonderful toward me in my season. She was so caring and so fantastic. I can only hope I can emulate somebody like that and use her for guidance."
