A rapper, an openly gay pro football player, an amputee veteran and, um, Lady Marmalade will help Dancing with the Stars celebrate its 10th anniversary.
And great news for fans of Derek Hough – the five-time mirror ball winner will participate after all! Hough was cast to play the male lead in New York Spring Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall this spring, but he will split his time between New York and Los Angeles. (It's nice to be so young and nimble!)
Eleven celebrities and their pro partners were revealed Tuesday on Good Morning America. The show still needs to find one more male star to pair with Witney Carson, the reigning champion.
Here are the stars:

Dancing with the Stars announced which pros will return for season 20 on Wednesday – and one who notably will not.
Last season's champion Witney Carson returns alongside fan favorite (and two-time champion) Mark Ballas. Seasoned pros and fellow mirrorball winners Tony Dovolani, Peta Murgatroyd and Kym Johnson are back in the mix. Newer pros including Val Chmerkovskiy, Sharna Burgess, Allison Holker, Emma Slater and Artem Chigvintsev were also confirmed to return.
Noticeably absent, Karina Smirnoff – a pro since season 3 and the season 12 champion – posted on Instagram Tuesday night that she would not be returning for season 20: "I've decided to focus my energies on some other exciting endeavors."

He might be 76 – but Tommy Chong has proved he's definitely still got it.
The comedian gave Dancing with the Stars viewers – and professional partner Peta Murgatroyd – a thrill during their salsa performance Monday night when he tore open his hot pink shirt and offered a peek at his impressive-looking abs.
"When he rips [his shirt] like he's the Hulk – I love that," Murgatroyd told PEOPLE with a grin after the show while standing beside Chong.

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.
Last week was rather stressful for both of us. In our Michael Jackson number, everything was sort of coming together, but then on the day we were doing our walkthrough with the band and our dress rehearsal, they took our stage away.
We had a catwalk and a round stage and they took that away because they realized they couldn't get it up in time. So all week long, we were practicing and had marked out the floor and width and depth and stuff and used choreography that would fit the catwalk.

It's crunch time on Dancing with the Stars, and Peta Murgatroyd and James Maslow are one of four couples heading into next week's fight for the mirror ball trophy after surviving elimination during Monday night's semifinals.
"I knew we could do it," Murgatroyd, 27, told PEOPLE backstage after the show, reflecting on her and Maslow's first rehearsals at the beginning of the season.
Added Maslow, 23: "We couldn't have predicted the path of who would have been voted off each week. I think because it's been so strange and seemingly random, we were confident in what we could do, but you can never be too confident in staying. So we've got to keep that humility, and we've got to do better than we've done each week and that's all we can do."
