Season 23 of ABC's Dancing With The Stars will debut on Monday, September 12th. Today, it was announced that former Detroit Lions' wide receiver Calvin Johnson and country music's Jana Kramer, who's from Rochester Hills, will be vying for the coveted Mirror Ball trophy.

Also on the list this season - Marcia Brady (Maureen McCormick - who had a short country music career), former Texas governor and presidential candidate, Rick Perry, Vanilla Ice and two 2016 Olympians, swimmer Ryan Lochte and 16 year-old gymnast Laurie Hernandez.

My early favorite would be Laurie Hernandez. And don't blink, or you'll probably miss Rick Perry. But, I might be surprised.

Here's the whole list.
