'DWTS': Why you won't see Maksim Chermkovskiy this season

One name was noticeably absent when Good Morning America announced the pairings for season 16 of Dancing With the Stars this morning.

Where is Maksim Chermkovskiy?

Almost every season, the Ukrainian-American hothead generates headlines by suggesting he won’t return to the ballroom. It looks like he finally got his wish, though ABC warns not to read too much into his absence since he won’t be the only pro sitting on the sidelines this season. READ FULL STORY

'Dancing With the Stars': Jacoby Jones joins cast

UPDATE (Feb. 26): Click to see Dancing With the Stars season 16 full cast.

ORIGINAL POST: The official cast announcement isn’t ’til Tuesday morning during Good Morning America, but ABC just named the first hoofer for season 16 in a promo during the Oscars: Baltimore Ravens wide receiver/kick return specialist Jacoby Jones. “He’s already won a Super Bowl ring,” a sporty announcer-type blared in the promo. “What’s he going to do next? DANCE.” Naturally! The 28-year-old joins a legacy of many proud Dancing With the Stars participants from the NFL, including winners Emmitt Smith, Hines Ward, and Donald Driver.

Check back Tuesday morning for EW.com’s photo gallery of the stars and pro partners.

Lance Armstrong turns down 'Dancing With the Stars' -- EXCLUSIVE

Lance Armstrong may not be able to race the Tour de France again. But ABC definitely wants him on Dancing With the Stars.

Sources say the ABC reality hit offered the former professional cyclist a spot on the upcoming spring edition of the veteran reality series. Armstrong declined.

Though the network approached Armstrong before his recent doping confession, we suspect Armstrong’s high-profile interview with Oprah Winfrey hasn’t dulled the network’s interest. Sources say Armstrong is among several high-profile “big get” celebrities who are regularly asked to join the show. Confirmed Armstrong’s spokesperson: “Lance has been offered the show each and every year since its inception. Although flattered he has passed on their generous offers.”

The news comes on the heels of Lindsay Lohan declining to appear on Dancing this season (and reportedly rejecting $550,000 in the process). We suspect she’ll cave someday.

Dancing will return with a new cast on March 18.

Chermkovskiy and Monaco made it to third place on this season’s all-stars version, which ended on Tuesday. READ FULL STORY

'DWTS' victor: 'I assumed it was Shawn and Derek taking it'

Melissa Rycroft wasn’t much different from a lot of folks in the viewing audience. When Dancing with the Stars was preparing to announce this season’s all-star winner on Tuesday, the former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader (and ex-bachelorette) assumed it would go to gymnast Shawn Johnson and three-time winner Derek Hough.

So she was admittedly gobsmacked when her name — and that of her very deserving partner, Tony Dovolani – was called, instead. “When it was our name called, I just went, oh, my gosh, how did this just happen,” she told reporters after the show. “The support behind us the entire season it feels good.  I felt the cast was genuinely happy for us.  It feels good to have fought hard all season and proven ourselves!

'DWTS' pro Derek Hough hints about exit

Is the Dancing with the Stars golden boy ready to bolt?

The tears that Derek Hough shed during Tuesday’s finale of Dancing with the Stars seemed to indicate that he was mourning more than just the end of the season with Shawn Johnson. Was he preparing to say goodbye to the ABC show that made him a household name?

“I was shocked at how I reacted,” Hough told reporters afterwards. “I was sort of overwhelmed and could barely speak, to be quite honest, because of all the memories of the show and how amazing it is. It was overwhelming.  I couldn’t even describe the feeling and I always want to be part of the show in some way. Who knows but …” READ FULL STORY

'DWTS' eliminated contestants: 'How much more could they have done?'

'DWTS' Cheryl Burke: 'I would love to be the Bachelorette'

Cheryl Burke has given lessons on how to a Paso Doble, so now she’d like to hand out a few red roses.

The Dancing with the Stars pro has made it clear to ABC that, should they be on the lookout for a hot hoofer to headline the network’s female dating franchise, she’d like to apply for the job.

“I did interview with the execs and we’ll see what happens in the future,” Burke told reporters after Monday’s episode. “It’s not a firm offer. It hasn’t been an offer but if they offer it to me, I would love to do it.”

Burke said finding love in Hollywood isn’t so easy for a gal like her. “It sounds crazy but I think I’m just so married to my work and I rarely meet new people. I’ve been around the same people for the last six years. I have maybe a month and a half of down time and all I want to do during that time is be with my family and sleep so it’s hard for me to be introduced to guys. I make the wrong choices. I dated a couple of guys over the summer and it turned out all bad so I figure if someone were to make the choice for me, then maybe I would have a better chance. I would make a choice…out of a pool of men, hopefully there would be one special person.”

Fortunately for Burke, a celebrity is on this season’s all-star to offer advice  — former Bachelorette Melissa Rycroft. “I’ll help her weed out the ones who are not worthy,” said Rycroft. “I would say to whoever goes into that role, I don’t think you can necessarily go in and go, I’m going to find my mate, my spouse. Go in saying, this is a new adventure. If it leads me that way, or if it at least gives me a great new relationship, take that.” – With reporting from Carole Gilnes

'DWTS': Mark Ballas dances with Shawn Johnson, hasn't 'felt this good...for a long time'

Somebody’s in a good mood!

Three weeks after he and Bristol Palin were sent packing, Mark Ballas came off the bench Monday to dance with his season 8 partner Shawn Johnson — and earned a perfect 30 for serving as a stand-in for the injured Derek Hough.

“I just felt really good,” Ballas told reporters afterwards. “All week it’s been feeling good. I’ve danced with Shawn before and we’ve been friends for a long time and I grew up with this guy [gesturing to Hough].”

“Mark was laughing because it was Wednesday and he’s like, ‘man, I haven’t felt this good on a Wednesday for a long time!’” quipped Hough.

“Let’s not go there!” Ballas replied. (No, let’s!) “All week for me I knew this was going to be fun and I just wanted to go out and not stress and it’s amazing to be dancing with Shawn again.” READ FULL STORY

'DWTS' eliminated contestant: 'This is a stinger'

The all-star edition of Dancing with the Stars has certainly produced more than its fair share of surprises, starting with the decision to invite Bristol Palin back to compete and outlast better performers like Helio Castroneves, Drew Lachey and Joey Fatone. Unfortunately, the shockers kept coming on Tuesday when another high-scoring hoofer was sent packing. For the all-star’s parting words, head to the jump. READ FULL STORY
