LOS ANGELES (AP) - “Dancing With the Stars” unveiled its new ballroom and new cast Monday, and when all the dancing was done, singer Chynna Phillips and actor J.R. Martinez topped the judges’ leaderboard.

Phillips and Martinez each earned 22 points out of 30 for their Viennese waltzes _ the night’s highest score. Basketball star Ron Artest landed in last place with 14 points. Head judge Len Goodman called Artest’s cha-cha “all sizzle and no sausage.”

Also making their dancing debut on the hit ABC show were World Cup soccer player Hope Solo; reality stars Robert Kardashian and Kristin Cavallari; TV personalities Nancy Grace and Ricki Lake; actor David Arquette and J.R. Martinez; and Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis, who may be better known in the United States for being George Clooney’s ex-girlfriend.
