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.

  • Old Drummer

    All the music sounds the same with the constant thump-thump rock style beat. As an old drummer, I don't hear the proper rhythms for the ballroom dances. What a letdown since the music blocks my attention for the dancers. Why haven't the dancers complained about the constant THUMP-THUMP THUMP-THUMP OF THE BASS DRUM OR SYNTHESIZER. It's truly a very disappointing season.

    Maybe I'll watch the news instead!!! When they did Disney, the music was great and I suppose that was by order of Disney. Alas, now it's back to the thump-thump thump of the rock and hip-hop "music" Since they have done little to appease the voting public, I'd like to change my rating to a low 2! Still having trouble recognizing just what dance is being done to the improper music!moreless
  • Its over for DWTS

    As usual with aging TV shows ala American Idol and now, DWTS they have gone "over the top", trying to change everything. Erin and the band are completely miscast. The attempt to go young is running off the long- term viewer loyalists and its a pity. If this is not the last year for the show, next year surely will be.
  • ne ne

    It is very wrong when Candace and Ne Ne both get rights, Ne Ne can't dance, be fair. Bring Brooke back.
  • Erin Roberts question

    Why does she look like she's 7 feet tall???
  • Pity Party

    Amy is an Inspiration!!! The reason she is, is because she has not allowed her handicap to hold her back. This has already been established. So lets quit bringing it up every single week! Cutting her a little slack, yes, but it is unfair for her to have an edge over all the other dancers who are working just as hard. If she wins the trophy this season it will certainly not be because she is the best dancer.moreless
