ABC unveiled its new dancing pairs (as reported by Entertainment Weekly) for the 15th season of Dancing With the Stars this morning. The season is entitled All-Stars, as it features ex-contestants returning to challenge other veterans of the dancing show.

There is a yet to be revealed Wild Card spot still to be decided do to a month-long fan vote on abc.com.
I've never watched Dancing With the Stars, but the idea of a show featuring previous winners/runners-up is appealing, as there should be some quality dancing on the show.
Are you excited for this new season, or would you rather have seen all new contestants?
