Dancing With the Stars is bringing out all the twists for its 18th season. In addition to The Switch Up, guest judges will be sitting in with Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba. First up: Robin Roberts.

The Good Morning America anchor will judge the DWTS season 18 contestants on Monday, March 31. She's the first in a line of celebrities who will rotate out of the seat. Former Dancing With the Stars pro dancer Julianne Hough will also be taking the seat later this season.

ABC has yet to announce the other guest judges, but now we're thinking about all the possibilities. Some names that spring to mind who would be great next to the three veteran judges (both experienced dancers and hilarious people):

Neil Patrick Harris—He has the chops and we're already going to miss him after How I Met Your Mother ends on Monday, March 31.

Retta—The hilarious star of Parks and Rec could livetweet her critiques (she livetweets what she watches, including The Good Wife and got an awesome call from series star Josh Charles after a devestating episode) and we'd still be laughing along at home.

Gwyneth Paltrow—We loved having her back on our TVs in the Glee 100th episode celebration, she'd be great on DWTS!

Bellamy Young—This Scandal star has the song and dance chops in her. Plus, network synergy!

Kristin Chenoweth—She's a spitfire and maybe they can have her sing too…

Chris Harrison—Well versed in the area of "bad moves" thanks to his recent war tour with Juan Pablo, he would have a lot to say!

Kate Hudson—She was great as Rachel's dance instructor on Glee…can she whip any of these contestants into shape?

Cher—The diva was a guest judge last year and DWTS would be lucky to have her back.

Chris Colfer, Lea Michele or Amber Riley—We saw how well Amber Riley did as a contestant, the Glee training should translate to judging too!

Who do you want to see at the table with Carrie Ann, Len and Bruno?
