DeGraw joins a number of B- and C-list stars for season 14 of the smash ABC program, including Gladys Knight (of Pips fame), Urkel, Donald Driver, and Martina Navratilova. Full list of participants below:

  • Gavin DeGraw – singer
  • Jaleel White – Urkel
  • Donald Driver – receiver for the Packers
  • Martina Navratilova – tennis champ
  • Gladys Knight – “empress of soul” of Pips fame
  • Jack Wagner – soap actor from General Hospital
  • Melissa Gilbert – Little House on the Prarie
  • William Levy – Telenova star
  • Sherri Shepherd – co-host of The View
  • Katherine Jenkins – opera star
  • Roshon Fegan – Disney Channel star
  • Maria Menounos – co-host of Extra

So it seems DeGraw has completely healed from the drunken encounter which left him hospitalized back in early August. The eight-gazillion-dollar question on all our minds is whether the dancing chops will trump his musical acumen?

Dancing with the Stars premieres March 19 at 8 pm, with a two-hour special.
