Nancy O'Dell and Tony Dovolani

Though tied for first in our poll, Nancy was forced to drop out of the competition due to a knee injury. Rumors of a replacement have swirled, but we won't find out for sure who'll be filling her dancing shoes until the show's premiere.

13. Jewel and Dmitry ChaplinBlame it on the Dancing with the Stars curse: Jewel will also not be competing as planned this season due to injury. But she could still take possession of the mirrorball trophy: Hubby Ty Murray is also competing this season.

Steve Wozniak and Karina Smirnoff

People may love Apple computers and products, but they don't love Mr. Wozniak, according to the votes. Since last year's Power Rankings predicted the first contestant to go, should Steve be worried?

Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke

Sex and the City: The Movie viewers have seen a lot of Gilles, but we've yet to see if he can put that body of his to good use on the parquet. He's also battled some injuries, but is staying in the fight. Will he overcome the pain (and the low number of votes)?

David Alan Grier and Kym Johnson

Funnyman Grier has always been quick on his feet in the improv-comedy game, but will that translate to his dancing skills? Let's hope so, since head judge Len Goodman rarely cracks a smile.

Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower

As already noted, bull rider Murray — with the help of Dancing newcomer Chelsie Hightower from So You Think You Can Dance? — is trying to rope a victory for himself and injured dropout Jewel. Will he grab ballroom by the horns or be thrown from the competiton early?

Steve-O and Lacey Schwimmer

Jackass star Steve-O rarely takes anything seriously, and we're not convinced that this competition will be any different. Even so, he's landed in the middle of the pack, perhaps because fans want to see some of his wacky antics. (We hear he's going to put scorpions in his tuxedo pants for the first dance!)

Lawrence Taylor and Edyta Sliwinska

LT was a force on the gridiron, but his appearance at Wrestlemania XI proves he can also entertain a crowd. Unfortunately, Wrestlemania and Dancing don't exactly share a fan base.

Lil Kim and Derek Hough

Lil Kim is a natural entertainer, and she's teamed with the defending champion pro partner. Her height might be a liability, but our readers think she's got the determination to rise to the challenge.

Belinda Carlisle and Jonathan Roberts

Musicians have fared well on the dance floor, but few ever make it to the finals. Will Belinda be able to Go-Go the distance?

Denise Richards and Maksim Chmerkovskiy

Not only is she gorgeous, Maks' moves set female viewers' hearts aflutter. We're personally praying this duo choreographs one of their ballroom numbers to "Wild Thing."

Chuck Wicks and Julianne Hough

Is Chuck's high placement due to his country music following or being teamed with girlfriend and Dancing darling Julianne Hough? Only time will tell if their chemistry off the dance floor will turn into success on it.

Shawn Johnson and Mark Ballas

She's the smallest dancer in the competition, but she's also got the most heart, evidenced most recently by her performance at the Olympics in Beijing. This just might be the year they turn the mirrorball trophy gold.
