Here are this season’s “Dancing With The Stars” celebrities:

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi — The “Jersey Shore” alum is now starring on MTV’s “Snooki and JWow.” She hopes to do better than “Shore” co-star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, who finished ninth in season 11.

Keyshawn Johnson — So if the former NFL wide receiver and current ESPN analyst wins it all, will he ask Bergeron to “give him the d**n ballroom”?

Valerie Harper — The TV sitcom icon was diagnosed with a rare and lethal form of brain cancer but has said she is feeling much better, and doctors have told her there is “less evidence of cancer”now.

Brant Daugherty — The actor played Noel Kahn on ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” and Patrick Clarke on Lifetime’s “Army Wives.”

Christina Milian — The entertainer had a Top Five hit with 2004’s “Dip It Low” and was “social media correspondent” for NBC’s “The Voice.”

Bill Nye — America’s favorite “Science Guy” told The New York Times in 2008 that he was “obsessed” with swing dancing, going out to the dance floor up to four nights a week.

Elizabeth Berkley — She danced like a high school student on TV’s “Saved by the Bell,” then twirled around a pole (among other antics) for the film “Showgirls.” Hopefully she’ll find a middle ground on “Dancing With the Stars.”

Corbin Bleu — He danced up a storm as Chad Danforth in the “High School Musical” trilogy and was recently seen as Jeffrey King in the online relaunch of the soap “One Life to Live.”

Amber Riley — The actress announced this year that she would no longer be a regular on Fox’s “Glee,” where she’s played Mercedes Jones since 2009.

Bill Engvall — The “Blue Collar” comic may have to give himself a sign if he exits early.

Jack Osbourne — The reality TV star hopes to do better than sister Kelly, who finished third way back in the ninth season.

Leah Remini — The actress briefly co-starred with fellow contestant Berkley on “Saved by the Bell” during the “Malibu Sands” era. Could we see a beach dance-off between the two?

The 17th season of “Dancing With the Stars” premieres September 16.
