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.

  • Sports makes people stupid and stupider. Take up your dance shoes and grow your brain not injure it!

    Us Canadians don't get to watch it tonight because of some 'sports game !!!!!!!!. I wished ballroom dance was as mainstream as it is in Europe. How many children and adults are suffering from the long term physical injuries and debilitating brain injuries all because of contact sports. Yet when these kids grow up they don't even know how to speak with a woman and who have these stupid ***phobic attitudes about learning to dance with a woman. I am mad as hell that men who run this country and your country who have taken every focus on sports and have given not even a glimpse to the arts and dance. It has been said that Ballroom can never be considered a sport because it is an art and so highly developed, but I say; "Is it not the ultimate sport compared to none". Because it is highly competitive, artistic, high developed, intellectual, emotional and spiritual and includes the complication and the continuous consideration of a dance partner moving in sync with each other to the very smallest fraction of a second.moreless
  • What happened to Julianne?

    Beautiful Julianne looks really bad. Terrible hair style and color. Skin looks washed out, needs a spray tan or better make up. Bring the beauty back!
  • What happened to Julianne?????

    When Julianne danced in previous seasons she always looked beautiful... Now that she is a judge who the heck is doing her hair? Her hair looks hideous, it looks like a 5 yr old was playing with it... Has she bothered to look in a mirror? She can't think that rats nest looks good, it looks like she sleeped in it for a week and forgot to brush it... As much as I like her the truth is the truth.... Julianne please let a professional stylist make your hair look gorgeous again... Enough of the just got out of bed and haven't touched my hair in a week look.....moreless
  • Great Dancers - rotten music

    RE: DANCING WITH THE STARS: Cannot believe that the pro dancers have not rebelled at the atrocious noise ABC thinks is music. The dominant drums and synthesizer cacophony is an insult to the quality of the talented performers. The show is no longer enjoyable or watchable since the producers obviously chose to save some money.

    Last season will be the last one we watched. It is with regret that we are forced to watch something else in that time slot. Whoever owns the show should dump the producers.moreless
  • Judges talk too much

    I enjoy the stars and the dancing but I leave the room when the judges start talking.
