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.

    I love this show it is awesome! But I can not stand Erin Andrews, she is a terrible host, she is rude and not professional at all !... Please find a better host and get Erin Andrews out!

  • Erin has to go!

    Please get rid of Erin Andrews.. It is very difficult to watch and listen to bring Brooke back or anyone other than Erin..
  • Bring back Brooke Burke!

    Sorry Erin Andrews. You're not Kat Deely. Just being real. Brooke was just flat out smooth. You're better suited for sports but you need much more polish foor this show.
  • Pro dancers

    My friends and I are getting sick of seeing pro dancers on DWTS Last night I was shocked to see Alphonse as a dancer and not a professional. I have watched him on Catch 21 which wasn't even announced last night, and he always dances with any contestant who says they dance. He will say "Like this" and then proceed to show them up because he can dance. He 's done belly dancing, tap, and imaginations of other dancers like Michael Jackson. So he comes out last night and gets a nine because he has danced.. Just like last year. If you compete in ice skating dance you first learn to dance on your feet.

    We are really getting discussed with the pros showing up the other contestants. Where is the fun of watching them grow if you get a nine on the first try.

    Please understand I am not criticizing his dancing but the fact that there's no competition when you have seen him dance on other shows and now he's competing with someone like the designer.moreless
  • Please get a new co host

    Please get rid of Erin Andrews/ she is so annoying! Love the spunky Sadie, cute as a button, and how refreshing to see a family pray together. I will give this season a few more weeks, if I can get through the torture of watching/listening to Erin.
