Show Summary

Dancing with the Stars is a unique series that pairs up celebrities with professional ballroom dance partners in an intense competition -- live -- in front of a studio audience and the nation. Each season has a select number of celebrity/professional dance pairs. The pairs are then judged by a panel of expert judges (Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman) as well as by the viewers at home. One team will be eliminated each week.

The couples must maintain their focus, grace and composure while learning precise movements and maneuvering in extravagant costumes. Will they remain compatible during the course of the competition?

Dancing with the Stars has broad appeal, offering viewers dazzling costumes, dancing, celebrity gossip, behind-the-scenes training and contemporary music performed by a live 15-piece band. The format has already been an international hit in several countries.

Dancing with the Stars is the U.S. installment of the international smash hit series, Strictly Come Dancing.

  • Tamar GO HOME!!!!

    I have been watching for years and Tamar needs to go HOME!!!! I can't stand her 3 or 4 minutes of whining and diva self. Val has always been the character he is today. She needs to get over herself ,and stop thinking she is a strong woman. WTF Ever. I won't say what she REALLY IS!!! because I am a respectful strong woman. And a good strong women don't act like whiny crybabies because they don't like the part they have to play ,and as for her I Guess she is a actress .I don't know what she is but her true self shows on DWTS. But as a actress be it reality tv or what ever. You know you have to play a part (ITS CALLED ACTING TAMAR) and the same goes for DWTS you have to play a part and i am sick of her controlling issues. There is no I in TEAM dumb girl, whiny little baby. I cant stand listening to her. And she can't stand the heat she needs to get out of the kitchen, cause Val is just trying to do his job. Not cower to TARMAR NEEDS. He wants her to win, but she is always acting like a DIVA that SHE IS NOT!! GO HOME TAMAR-You maybe a little pretty on the outside but your very ugly on the inside. Such a BAD ATTITUDE COMES OUT OF YOUR MOUTH every time i see you on the show. Looks bad on Dancing with the stars stop disrespecting Dancing with the Stars and their PROFESSIONAl Dancers and Go back to your Stupid reality show,So, you can be the real B that i bet you are. And a show which I would never corrupt my mind with ( especially after the way you act on DWTS). Being a good person and nice person. IS BEING A STRONG PERSON!!!! GET OVER YOURSELF TAMAR. And I hate to subject other fans to this post but I hope it gets to Tamar cause she needs to be schooled about her stinky, ugly, complaining, uncooperative diva attitude. If she doesn't like who she is with she should have never joined the show, it would be better without her disrespectful mouth and bad attitude, when he is trying to make her look good and teach her something. You can't fix UGLY ATTITUDE OR MAKE IT LOOK GOOD (VAL) I have never seen on the show such a ridiculous star as her. If you want to call her that!!!!! All the years I have been watching the show I have not seen a "star" try to take such control over the dancer. They don't always get along but the stars always do their best to learn what they need to learn so they can win. Feel sorry for Val as long as he has to endure her abuse and criticism .He is a true WINNER!!!! Get over yourself DIVA go back to your reality show. Your attitude makes you UGLY!!!! If she had a better attitude she would get rated better. And No one would write bad reviews about her. Having money doesn't give you the right to be rude. Cause in the end all the fame and fortune she has WON'T GO WITH HER!! Being a good person is part of what gets you in Heaven NOT MONEY OR FAME. Although I have never heard of her until DWTS and after she is voted OFF. I will never have to be subjected to her demeaning attitude.moreless
  • Paula Deen

    I can't even listen to her talk yall!! much less watch her dance or attempt to. Shame on her for trying to get the sympathy vote. She's been abandoned too many times? What's that got to do with anything?

  • Gary Busey

    I think Gary Busey should have been one of the first to be voted off. I'm not sure why anyone would support him. He is terrible and, frankly, pathetic!!!
  • Alex and Lindsey

    Love True Blood theme, loved the dance, loved the choreography & Alex and Lindsey duo. He's the most confident looking and powerful celebrity male on the floor. Love, love Alex/Lindsey. Please vote for
  • Dancing with the stars

    Julianne does not belong on the judging panel. We all know why. Letting Alfonso judge was ridiculous. He is not even a pro. If I were the pros that would be insulting to me. The show has really lost me!
