Aug. 31, 2011— -- intro: The "Dancing With the Stars" season 13 celebrity and pro pairings were announced today exclusively on "Good Morning America."

The star-studded celebrity line-up includes actor David Arquette, Chaz Bono, the son of famed entertainers Sonny and Cher, HLN's legal analyst Nancy Grace, as well as fashion guru Carson Kressley, NBA champ Ron Artest, model Elisabetta Canalis, reality-TV stars Kristin Cavallari and Rob Kardashian, talk show icon Ricki Lake, war veteran and actor J.R. Martinez, entertainer Chynna Phillips, World Cup soccer star Hope Solo.

Kressley and pro-partner Anna Trebunskaya appeared on "GMA" today and said they're ready to tango.

"We're totally going to kick butt," Kressley said. "I was cha cha-ing and samba-ing, I kind of have a Latin kind of thing."

"I know you have to work incredibly hard. And I was telling Anna, 'I have two left feet and one of them has a bunion,'" he joked. "If we have to practice eight hours to be good, I want to practice 20 hours. We're going to be inseparable."

All 12 celebrities will begin training with their professional partners, learning either the cha cha or the Viennese Waltz for the show's two-hour season premiere, Monday, Sept. 19 at 8 p.m. ET.

The couple with the lowest combined judges' scores and public votes for their performance will be sent home in the season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars: The Results Show," Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 9 p.m. ET.
