ABC's supremely successful 'Dancing with the Stars' is set to return to the small screens for a 26th season on April 30, with fans no doubt eager to see the stellar cast the show has in store for them this time around. And well, let's just say that the producers have not disappointed. 

The upcoming season will feature only athletes and is accompanied by a further twist: instead of its usual 8 to 11-week run, it will wrap up in just four weeks. This change was forced, in part, thanks to the return of 'American Idol' on the network but will quite possibly make the show more fast-paced and thrilling to watch.

Here are the 10 athletes who will be performing for your votes in the upcoming season. Who do you think will walk away with the coveted mirror-ball trophy?
