The new celebrities for “Dancing with the Stars” are warming up for their big debut Monday, March 22.

Aiden Turner of “All My Children” fame is paired with the gorgeous Edyta Sliwinska. They already look to be a striking couple. Is Aiden perhaps a bit of a dark horse contender?

ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews has been paired with Maksim Chmerkovskiy. From the looks of her pose, their first dance is pretty upbeat. Could it be a fun latin dance? That’d be a hard one to start with.
