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.

  • Not the Show it Once Was!

    Actually I don't like the show, any more. It's very disappointing to see the judges being political rather than honest. Tonight, I watched four couples dance before getting disgusted and turning off the TV. The judges are professionals and should judge accordingly. It's only the beginning of the season and these contestants are not worthy of the scores they are receiving! It's a joke! On a scale of one to ten, I rate this season a TWOmoreless

    I have been a fan of DWTS since the first season and this season has to be the worst! Your opening show introduction of Charlotte McKinney was in extremely poor taste - It's obvious the girl has big boobs but is that ALL she has? Obviously as that is the only thing the producer chose to highlight in her introduction. Why did we need to see her partner taping her chest??? Seriously!! The opening clip of Brad meeting Whitney was just as bad - if a man felt up his female partner the way she did him, would that have been shown? Focus on the dancing and quit trying to make this so sexual... The show can carry it's own without all this trash!moreless
  • age appropriate

    DWTS needs to stop using pros and stars under the age of 18. This is an adult show and the humor is mostly sexual as well as the dances and it's becoming sickening with these girls mostly dancing with these men. You should have learned your lesson from the Duck girl its hard to show sensuality and its not fair for the pro to have to think of something appropriate, and she was 17.moreless
  • Add professional teens to show

    I don't agree with the idea of a 14 year old dancing with and adult. The show should have professional teens if they are going to have children on the show. Over the past ten year DWTS has made different changes, some successful and some not so successful.
  • Dissappointed

    I live in the south and am a fateful watcher. My granddaughter and I enjoyed this season. I am so disappointed that this tour didn't come to the south in VA,NC, OR SC. We would like to have a chance to see the tour. Thank You so much for such a wonderful season even if we cant see the tour. Hope next season is as good as this one.
