Though the site mentions that the official full list will be revealed on Good Morning America’s September 4th episode, the Black stars listed so far include Amber Riley (Glee), Christina Milan (The Voice), and Keyshawn Johnson (ESPN).

According to the article, one of Amber Riley’s reasons for doing the show is to lose weight. Celebrities like Kristie Allie and Kyle Massey (Cory In The House) have lost weight while participating in Dancing With The Stars.  Massey reportedly lost 18 lbs and placed 3rd.

Riley, who is no stranger to choreographed dance routines due to having been a regular on Glee for its first 3 seasons, should have a leg up. Let’s hope she stays on the show long enough to meet her goals.
