"Dancing With The Stars" 2017 premieres March 20 on ABC with an all-new cast of celebrity Mirrorball Trophy hopefuls ready to go for glory in the storied "DWTS" ballroom.

26 interview that she'd like to see Bruno Mars strut his stuff as a "Dancing with the Stars" cast member (though she seemed to admit that it would be a longshot).

The pros' dream match-ups

When recently asked to choose her dream partner for the "DWTS" 2017 cast, Emma Slater --who last hoofed it alongside former Texas governor Rick Perry-- tweeted out a trio of very different guys in "Storage Wars" star Barry Weiss, actor Russell Brand, and "Property Brothers" heartthrob Jonathan Scott.

Sharna Burgess, who just missed winning the Mirroball Trophy with IndyCar driver James Hinchcliffe last fall, tweeted her approval of two ideal matches suggested by fans: singer/songwriter Usher, and actor Chris Pratt.

Potential 'DWTS' 2017 cast members?

Although there's no indication that any of the cast members' dream picks have actual interest in competing on the hit reality TV show, others are more legitimate rumor material. One is Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles, who declined an invitation to compete last fall but said she'd be interested in taking part in a future season. Current "The Bachelor" Nick Viall expressed his interest to Glamour, and fan site PureDWTS also noted that actor Rick Schroder, who was asked to dance during past seasons, was photographed with former Mirrorball Trophy winner Witney Carson at the iHeart80s Party on Jan.
