Although partnering is not yet revealed, 'Dancing with the Stars' has opened up on which stars will compete in this leg of dancing.

The complete and official cast of "Dancing with the Stars" season 8 has been unearthed. Apparently the leaked casting scoop last week hits the bullseye for all three, country singer Jewel Kilcher, actress Denise Richards and reality TV star Steve-O, are confirmed signing up for the dancing competition.

Bringing a different twist, however, this season for the first time presents celebrity spouses that will compete against each other. Rodeo star Ty Murray joins the show to battle his wife, Jewel. Another celebrity couple vying for the prize are Julianne Hough and Chuck Wicks. Talking to People magazine, the show's Senior Talent Producer, Deena Katz said, "Julianne is the cutest thing you'll ever meet and she's one of the toughest teachers. I keep warning Chuck, 'you see this loving side, but she is tough.'"

Completing the line-up are rapper Lil' Kim, actors Gilles Marini and David Alan Grier, former NFL player Lawrence Taylor, singer Belinda Carlisle, Apple computer co-founder Steve Wozniak, Olympic gymnast Shawn Johnson and also Access Hollywood host Nancy O'Dell.

"It's the most diverse cast we've had," Katz said. "The women are phenomenal and the men are such great characters."

Pairing is not yet revealed but it is confirmed that professional dancer regulars Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff will participate in this round. The partnering will be announced on Thursday, February 12 while the show will begin March 9.
