Opinionated judges, talented pro dancers, adventurous celebs, gobs of glitter, oodles of spray tans, Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke! That's the basic formula for Dancing With The Stars, but really there's nothing formulaic or predictable about it because this is our show. We, the viewers, call the shots. We determine who stays and who goes each and every week.
You'd think the stars were competing for far more than just a mirrored disco ball the way they risk torn ligaments, poked eyes, fainting spells and wardrobe malfunctions all while trying to earn a perfect 30 from judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli. We'd never want to face their wrath, but it sure is fun to see them unleash it on the stars. It's probably the one time we wouldn't want to be in a celeb's shoes, no matter how glittery they may be.
Dancing was better than ever last season. For the first time, fans chatted live on ABC.com during the show as part of our "Live Chat Party." The chat will be back as well asl "Macy's Design a Dance," the ever-popular Team Galleries, trivia quizzes and lot of other engaging features!
Season 11 of DWTS was one of the most dramatic yet. From the surprise initial elimination of David "The Hoff" Hasselhoff to the even more shocking semi-finals bye-bye of Brandy, we saw fantastic performances, unpredictable judges and some seriously unexpected talent on display. Who knows what will happen this time around? The only thing we know for sure is that we can't wait to find out!
