Dancing with the Stars, Tom Bergeron, Samantha Harris

ABC announced Wednesday that the eighth season of Dancing with the Stars will premiere on March 9 with a live, two-hour special.

Returning to a timeline not used since Season 5, all the contestants will be allowed to dance for two weeks before any eliminations are made.

While Season 8's competitors have yet to be announced, let's start a rumor, shall we? Isn't it awesome that Ricardo Montalban, Andre Agassi and Trishelle from The Real World will be dancing this season? Now you. Who do you want to see twinkle-toeing across ABC's parquet?
