Domingão do Faustão (literally Big Fausto's Great Sunday) is a Brazilian talk show aired every Sunday since 1989. Produced by Rede Globo and hosted by Fausto Silva also known as Faustão, it features live music performances (usually by the most popular artists in Brazil at the time) as well as special segments, such as the Dança dos Famosos (Brazilian version of Dancing with the Stars) and the more recent Dança no Gelo (Dancing on Ice). It is one of the oldest and most famous Globo's television shows since its first broadcast in 1989.
