Only two of the semifinalists — Amber Riley and Corbin Bleu — have professional dance experience, but at this point in the competition, is that more of a hindrance or a help?

For the season premiere of Dancing With the Stars, three of the 12 new celebrity hoofers — gold medal figure skater Dorothy Hamill, General Hospital's Ingo Rademacher, and the Disney Channel's Zendaya — were assigned the contemporary genre for their first dance, instead of the usual cha cha, waltz or fox trot.

Though April 1 marks General Hospital's actual 50th anniversary, the show's executive producer, Frank Valentini, and head writer Ron Carlivati, have been honoring the show's rich history ever since taking over the ABC soap opera one year ago this week.

Dancing's Melissa Rycroft on Her Big Win: I Think We Earned It

Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani

Maybe Melissa Rycroft should keep setting the bar low. The Bachelor alum, who finished third on Season 8 of Dancing with the Stars, just wanted to make it to Week 4 of All-Stars with Tony Dovolani.

"Honestly, I don't think anyone predicted us to win," Rycroft tells TVGuide.com. "We wanted to win, but we certainly didn't expect to. I'm still in shock." See what else Rycroft has to say about her big win below. Plus: Where will she put the Mirrorball?
