Guess who's heading to the "Dancing With The Stars" ballroom? Robin Roberts!

The "Good Morning America" anchor will be a guest judge on the hit ABC show, joining Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba at the judges table on March 31.

"I am nervous...but you got to step outside of your comfort zone," Roberts said today on "GMA." "I think I am going to take the perspective of those who normally watch at home."

Roberts will be one of many guest judges on "Dancing" this season, including former pro Julianne Hough and singer Ricky Martin.
