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.

Fan Reviews (307)

  • 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
  • We all should not even be on the show. This may be the last season watched for all of us.

    We all should not even be on the show. This may be the last season watched for all of us. The poor guy can barely walk, let alone dance. We agree with many of the others below in that he should not have ben on the show or should have been voted off long ago.
  • Down and Down it goes

    I agree with most of the comments made. This was a great show when you started. It inspired the "common folk" that maybe they could do something new. Now it is a popularity contest with too many "semi-trained" contestants. Please get back to the viewers joy of watching non-dancers grow and actual earn the mirror ball.
  • Dancing Skills not important anymore - just pity

    DWTS has turned into a popularity contest. There is no way that Noah, the disabled veteran, could be qualified to be in the finals without the sympathy vote from the fans. He CANNOT dance. It was also ridiculous for him to get all 9's from the judges. If you must include the popular vote, don't weight it so much that it negates the votes of the judges for actual dancing talent. Several of the eliminated dancers were much better dancers but he got the pity vote. I'm sorry he was injured but that doesn't make him a good dancer. Maybe you could get Steven Hawking to appear. I also wish you would dump Julianne. We fast-forward thru her comments as they are a waste of time. Go back to actual dancing.

    5/19/2015:Tonight's result will determine whether I'm done with Dancing. Noah can't dance and he shouldn't be getting 10's from the judges. He should have been gone long ago. In the past judges have said they can't take injuries into account. They have to judge on ability. Last night Noah got 10's so based on that standard Rumor should have had 12's. Where are the "stars"?. The premise of this show has certainly changed since the beginning. And, do you really need 4 judges? I miss the dynamic of Bruno and Len when they sat next to each other.moreless
