Dancing with the Stars aficionados will soon learn which celebrities will be waltzing into primetime for the show's upcoming eighth season.
ABC has revealed it will announceDancing with the Stars' eighth-season celebrity cast during the network's primetime programming block on February 8.
"Wanna know who's dancing this season? Sunday, we're dropping names all night long," the network teased a commercial that aired during its daytime programming on Monday.
"The new cast of Dancing with the Stars will be revealed Sunday during all-new episodes of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers & Sisters. The Dancing with the Stars all-night name drop -- Sunday starting at 8/7 central on ABC."
Former Jackass star Steven "Steve-O" Glover and The View co-host Sherri Shepherd are some of the celebrities previously rumored to be potential eighth-season participants.
In addition, former NFL star Lawrence Taylor is also apparently competing in Dancing with the Stars eighth season -- that is if you listen to Ashton Kutcher.
"Just met LT, the old-school Lawrence Taylor," Kutcher posted Sunday on his Twitter feed before hinting about Taylor's participation. "Expect to see him in prime time soon. Can't say where but he better work on his footwork."
Similar to the way it handles all casting rumors and reports prior to each season's official cast announcement, ABC declined comment on Taylor's possible participation.
