While we've watched Sherri Shepherd shriek delightfully upon meeting her "Dancing With the Stars" pro for the first time, heard Maks Chmerkovskiy admit he didn't know who his partner, Melissa Gilbert, was and seen how the Season 14 cast is doing in rehearsals, two new "Dancing With the Stars" cast members have been noticeably absent: telenovela star William Levy and opera singer Katherine Jenkins.
The race for the Mirror Ball kicks off with the "Dancing With the Stars" Season 14 premiere on Mon., March 19, 8 p.m. ET on ABC. And though we've seen most of the celebrities in their dancing shoes and shimmery dresses for their ABC photoshoot, Levy and Jenkins missed out ... until now. Check out the newly released photos in the slideshow below.
William Levy is best known in the US for his appearance in Jennifer Lopez's "I'm Into You" music video, but the 31-year-old heartthrob got his start modeling before appearing in some Telemundo reality shows. He then moved on to a variety of Spanish-language soaps, helping him earn the title of People En Español's sexiest man of 2011.
Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins has performed for the Queen numerous times, but on this side of the pond, few had heard of her before she was cast in Season 14 of "Dancing With the Stars." Jenkins, also 31, did, however, perform on the series in April 2011 and performed a duet with "DWTS" regular Beverley Staunton.

Jack Wagner, star of "Melrose Place" (pro partner: Anna Trebunskaya)
