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.

  • Wrong music. 2.0

    Why oh why don't you have proper music for the dances. Strauss wrote beautiful waltz music. Tonight's foxtrot was nothing like a ballroom foxtrot, and the music was not appropriate. Proper dance music does not have lyrics. Come on, give us some proper ungymnastic dances. Most people are calling it "gymnastics with the Stars". Oh and dress the ladies. Costumes are too brief, suitable for fitness classes, not ballroom. Am so disappointed with the show.moreless
  • This years judges

    Love watching DWTS but so disappointed with Helen who is looked upon as a professional yet when the cameras started rolling she wasnt able to hide the fact that she doesnt approve of her fellow workers to the left of her. Helen you need to pull the pin if your not happy because you are a stand out this year and its for the wrong reasons
  • It has its flaws

    I really like DWTS in general. I am sometimes offended because the dancers gyrate to the point of vulgarity. It also creeps me out that there is so much kissing and hugging between the dancing partners. I am not a touchy-feely person. It puts me off to see so much physical display of affection among the contestants.
  • Why are fan vote numbers never revealed???

    Because producers decide who wins and you can't do that if everyone knows the truth. Rumer and Riker were even before the "ghost" fan votes. I realize her parents have a lot of famous friends, but Riker has a legion of 800k plus Twitter peeps, do you really think Rumer and Val won on fan votes? NO! And the whole pity party for Noah, ugh, I watch for dancing, not for that. Patti LaBelle was a better dancer, most of them were. Its a laugh anymore and Probably why Len wants out.moreless
