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.

      It is so obvious that the producers keep the military guy around for the ratings. He cannot dance a lick. The finale he just walked. Not a dance step. "Walking With The Stars"?
    • Derek always wins

      So although it is not supposed to be about the pros I feel as if Derek always gets people that can dance or are capable of learning how it isn't fair Tony always gets the insane house wives who just want attention or he gets the old people who cant remember what they had for breakfast let alone dance this show needs to be more fair and if Derek is such a great teacher why doesn't he get a real challenge.moreless
    • dwts judges: what do they have against our vets????

      Every time they have a veteran on the show

      They find fault no matter what they do, and seem to consistently give them low scores!!! Wake up Bertha butt Carrie Ann and miss sour puss Julianne!!
    • Bindi will be a great example for helping to save the planet

      The other dancers are all great. How will they use their fame and money from this show. Singers, celebs by bigger houses, more toys. Will Bindi do this at 17. She will use her fame to support wildlife education ecology and a spokesperson for environmental issues great works research and education of the human species. Her enthusiastic nature inspires other to care for things on this planet. Do I need to say a role model as well for young and old. Hope you will everyone will think about this for this is the right place where the trophy should go. All my best to a great woman!!!moreless

      Absolutely beautiful!! Those of us that have lost loved ones will be forever grateful for this heartfelt dance. We have been touched deep in our hearts and will remember this for as long as we live. Elegance and pure unconditional love in motion.
