We've heard so much about Bristol Palin and The Situation, sometimes it's hard to remember that there are other stars performing on Dancing with the Stars. So now feels like as good a time as any to check in on the rest of them... like Michael Bolton and Kurt Warner.

"I think you have to be a little out of your mind to do the show," Michael tells ET. "And I am a little out of my mind." Michael is paired with Chelsie Hightower and they'll perform the Viennese Waltz during the first episode. "Her choreography is amazing," Michael gushes. "I love it. I'm eager to get it right."

Still, don't think he's that eager. "It's a good thing we have another nine weeks to practice before the first show," Michael says with loaded sarcasm. "And I'm really glad the show's not live, because that would be impossible."

Meanwhile, Kurt Warner has something else on his mind besides dancing... not letting down his kids. "They're excited about the show. They just want Dad to do well enough that he's not embarrassing."

The retired quarterback says that his lack of skills have made rehearsals frustrating, but partner Anna Trebunskaya has been patient. "I've been dancing for seven days of my entire life… and so there's a lot of good things, but just not where you want it to be. Y'know, you're used to having success and being good at what you do, and I'm just not there yet." Get there Kurt, the season starts in a less than a week.
