After months of speculation, the lineup for season 14 of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” has been revealed, MSNBC reports.

Controversial NFL player Tim Tebow, the subject of weeks of rumors, is NOT on the list, the story notes. But the list of 12 celebrities includes Melissa Gilbert, who played Laura Ingalls Wilder on “Little House on the Prairie,” along with Jaleel White, who was uber-nerd Steve Urkel in “Family Matters.”

Also in the lineup are tennis superstar Martina Navratilova and eight-time Grammy winner Gladys Knight. Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver is also on board, as is “Melrose Place” and “General Hospital” actor Jack Wagner.

Singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw, Disney Channel star Roshon Fegan and “Extra” host Maria Menounos also will participate, as will “The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd, actor and former model William Levy and Welsh pop singer Katherine Jenkins.

Season 14 premieres March 19.
