Chmerkovskiy teams up this season with Entourage's Debi Mazar, while Smirnoff's partner is teen idol Aaron Carter.

Chmerkovskiy and Smirnoff announced their engagement after just three months of dating, aiming for a June 2010 wedding; he proposed to the beautiful Smirnoff just before the clock struck midnight on New Year's Eve, only six months after she split with her ex dancing partner, TV beefcake Mario Lopez.

Dancing With The Stars’ live, three-night premiere kicks off Monday at 8/7c on ABC.
