After the announcement on Good Morning America, Kobe Bryant had a message for his former teammate Derek Fisher.

"I gotta say, on the list of all teammates that we've played with, yours was not at the top of the list, as far as guys that would be on Dancing with the Stars," Bryant said. "That being said, I wish you nothing but luck."

Though Nick and Vanessa Lachay are a team at home, they'll be competing against each other in the ballroom. Their partners will be Dancing's own married couple, Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

"I've actually moved out of the house for the duration of the season, just to keep the peace," Nick joked, to which Vanessa responded, "No, America, we're still living together."

The couple also got a message from Nick's brother and 98 Degrees bandmate, Drew Lachey.

"I sure hope you beat Vanessa," he told Nick. "Because if you don't, she is never going to let you hear the end of it."

Reigning Mirror Ball champ Rashad Jennings also made an appearance to give this season's contestants some advice.

"Don't take yourself too serious," he said. "Have fun."
