Dancing with the Stars' six female eleventh-season celebrities will be comedian and actress Margaret Cho, actress Jennifer Grey, actress Florence Henderson, singer and former America's Got Talent judge Brandy Norwood, former The Hills star Audrina Patridge, and Bristol Palin, the teen mom daughter of former Alaskan governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

The six male celebrities will be singer Michael Bolton, former NBA basketball player Rick Fox, actor and former America's Got Talent judge David Hasselhoff, rapper and Disney Channel star Kyle Massey, Jersey Shore star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, and recently retired NFL quarterback Kurt Warner.

Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron and co-host Brooke Burke revealed the identities of the celebrity cast live during Monday night's Bachelor Pad broadcast.  Except for Bolton and The Situation, all of the celebrities appeared live on stage with the Dancing with the Stars hosts as they were announced.

"[They] couldn't be here tonight," Bergeron said as he announced Bolton and The Situation's participation.

With the exception of Massey, all the celebrities had previously been reported to be participating or be in talks to participate in Dancing with the Stars' eleventh season.

Dancing with the Stars' eleventh season will premiere Monday, September 20 at 8PM ET/PT with a two-hour broadcast.

All 12 celebrities will perform a Viennese waltz or cha cha routine with their professional partner during the premiere, and the couple with the lowest combination of the judges' scores and home viewer votes will be eliminated on the following night's results show.

Dancing with the Stars' eleventh-season professional partner pairings will be announced Wednesday morning on Good Morning America.

However according to Edyta Sliwinska -- the only professional dancer to participate in all of the ABC ballroom dancing competition's first ten seasons -- she won't be among this season's partners.

On Monday, Sliwinska said she quit Dancing with the Stars due to a disagreement with the show's producers.
