-- Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger partners with Season 7 champ Derek Hough
-- "All My Children" star Aiden Turner is paired with legwarmer queen Edyta Sliwinska, the only pro to compete in all 10 seasons.
Note that there's no Dmitry Chaplin, Karina Smirnoff, or recent champ Kym Johnson this season. Did your favorite pro make the list? And now that you've seen the matchups, who do you think has what it takes to win it all?
