Chronology
RelatedDancing with the Stars: Juniors

Dancing with the Stars is an American dance competition television series that premiered on June 1, 2005, on ABC. It is the U.S. version of the UK series Strictly Come Dancing, and one of several iterations of the Dancing with the Stars franchise. The show pairs celebrities with professional dancers. Each couple performs predetermined dances and competes against the others for judges' points and audience votes. The couple receiving the lowest combined total of judges' points and audience votes is eliminated each week until only the champion dance pair remains.

The show was hosted by Tom Bergeron from its inception until 2019.[4] Lisa Canning was co-host in the first season, Samantha Harris co-hosted seasons two through nine,[5] Brooke Burke-Charvet in seasons ten through seventeen, and Erin Andrews from season eighteen through twenty-eight.[6][7][8][4] Since the twenty-ninth season, model Tyra Banks has served as host of the show.[9][10] Starting with the thirty-first season, Alfonso Ribeiro joined as co-host.[11]

The 30th season of the show aired September–November 2021. On April 8, 2022, it was announced that, beginning with the 31st season, Dancing with the Stars would move from ABC to Disney+.[12]

Tom Bergeron (who was also hosting America's Funniest Home Videos, also on ABC, at the time of the show's debut) was the host for the show's first 28 seasons, beginning with its premiere in 2005. In season 1, his co-host was Lisa Canning. She was replaced by Samantha Harris for seasons 2 through 9 (2006–2009), who was then replaced by Brooke Burke-Charvet from seasons 10 through 17 (2010–2013). Erin Andrews took over as co-host starting in season 18 (2014). Drew Lachey served as a temporary replacement for Harris during season 5 (2007) during her absence for 3 weeks due to maternity leave. Leah Remini filled in for Andrews in week 6 of season 19, due to commitments with the 2014 World Series and filled in for her again in weeks 6 and 7 of season 21 for the 2015 World Series.[13][14] Season 19 champion Alfonso Ribeiro filled in for Bergeron on week 4 of season 21, when Bergeron was absent to be with his ailing father.[15]

On July 13, 2020, Bergeron announced in a tweet that he had been let go from the series. ABC and BBC Studios made an official announcement shortly afterwards saying Andrews would also be exiting the program.[16] The following day, model and host Tyra Banks was announced to be joining the show as host in addition to serving as an executive producer for the twenty-ninth season.[10] On July 14, 2022, it was announced that Ribeiro would join Banks as co-host for the thirty-first season.[11]

Judging panel[edit]

The regular judges are Len Goodman, who serves as head judge, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli. Goodman was absent for much of season 19, all of season 21, much of season 23 and all of season 29. Julianne Hough, who was a professional dancing partner for seasons 4–8, was added as a full-time judge on the panel for three seasons, 19–21,[17] after having been a guest judge in the previous two seasons.[18] She did not return for season 22.[17] Hough did return as a full-time judge for seasons 23 and 24 but did not return subsequently. Julianne's brother, Derek Hough, replaced regular head judge Len Goodman for season 29, as Goodman was unable to be in Los Angeles due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, though he was able to "share his ballroom expertise" from England during the season via pre-taped clips.[19][20] Several former contestants appeared as judges in episode 200 (in season 11), including Hélio Castroneves, Mel B, Drew Lachey, Gilles Marini, Kelly Osbourne, and Emmitt Smith. Other celebrities, most often those who are associated with the world of dancing, former professional dancers, and past contestants have appeared as the fourth judge or in absence of one of the main judges, including Paula Abdul, Donnie Burns, Nick Carter, Cher, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Michael Flatley, Kevin Hart, Jessie J, Rashad Jennings, Baz Luhrmann, Ricky Martin, Idina Menzel, Abby Lee Miller, Mandy Moore, Olivia Newton-John, Kenny Ortega, Donny Osmond, Pitbull, Redfoo, Alfonso Ribeiro, Robin Roberts, David Ross, Shania Twain, Leah Remini and Zendaya.

The seventh episode of Season 31 marked the first time five judges were ever featured on the panel at once, when Michael Bublé appeared as both a performer and bonus judge for a themed night featuring his music.[21] Goodman announced during the Season 31 Semifinals that he would be retiring from the show at the end of the season.[22]

Musicians[edit]

For 17 seasons, the Harold Wheeler orchestra and singers provided the live music for the show. On February 7, 2014, it was announced that Ray Chew would be brought in as band leader, bringing with him a new band of instrumentalists and singers.[23]

Couples[edit]

A total of 367 celebrities have appeared in the 31 seasons of the series. For each season, the celebrities are paired with a professional partner who instructs them in the various dances each week and competes alongside them in the televised competition. A total of 49 professional partners have appeared alongside celebrities, some for only one season (mostly in the earliest seasons).[citation needed] The professional who has competed on the most seasons is Cheryl Burke, with 25 seasons.

Notes:

  • Only 3 professionals have won in their first season with a celebrity partner. These are Alec Mazo (season 1), Cheryl Burke (season 2) and Julianne Hough (season 4).
  • No professional has ever won in their last season with a celebrity partner.
  • Only 3 professionals have won twice in a row. These are Cheryl Burke (seasons 2 and 3), Julianne Hough (seasons 4 and 5) and Derek Hough (seasons 10 and 11, and again with seasons 16 and 17).
  • Derek Hough has the most wins of any professional dancer, with 6.

Dance troupe[edit]

In season 12, the show introduced the troupe, consisting of professional dancers who perform on the show but are not paired with celebrity partners.[24] The first troupe in season 12 included Oksana Dmytrenko, Tristan MacManus, Peta Murgatroyd, Kiki Nyemchek, Nicole Volynets, and Ted Volynets.[25] Other past troupe members include Artur Adamski, Brandon Armstrong, Lindsay Arnold, Alan Bersten, Sharna Burgess, Henry Byalikov, Witney Carson, Brittany Cherry, Dasha Chesnokova, Artem Chigvintsev, Hayley Erbert, Sasha Farber, Sofia Ghavami, Shannon Holtzapffel, Dennis Jauch, Jenna Johnson, Daniella Karagach, Kiril Kulish, Vladislav Kvartin, Morgan Larson, Keo Motsepe, Sonny Fredie-Pedersen, Gleb Savchenko, Emma Slater, Britt Stewart, and Julz Tocker.

The troupe was brought back for season 31 after not having one for three seasons. The troupe members included D'Angelo Castro, Kateryna Klishyna, Ezra Sosa, and Alexis Warr.[26]

Other professional dancers[edit]

In season 30, two professional dancers, Sofia Ghavami and Ezra Sosa, joined the cast. Both dancers are not paired with a celebrity partner, but are instead showcased as part of the competing couples' dances throughout the season. They are also prepared to step in if a pro is unable to compete.[27]

Scoring and voting procedure[edit]

In the first two seasons, only the overall ranking between competitors by the judges and the public was relevant. In the third season and all subsequent seasons, the scoring system has also made the exact scores relevant.

The scoring begins with the judges' marks. Each judge gives a numeric score from 1 to 10, for a total score of 3 to 30 or 40. The scoring was altered for the "all-star" season 15, during which judges could give scores at 1/2-point intervals from 0.5 to 10, for a total score of 1.5 to 30. When multiple performances are scored, only the cumulative total counts. The contestants' judges' shares are calculated as the percentage of the total number of points awarded to all contestants that evening. (For example, if a team earned 20 pts on a night when the judges awarded 200 pts, their judges' share would be 20/200 = 10%.) This percentage is then added to the percentage of North American votes received by each contestant. The two couples with the lowest scoring are identified at the end of the show, and the couple with the lowest combined total gets eliminated.[28] Season 8 added an occasional 'dance-off', in which contestants could re-perform one of their dances, in an effort to improve their judges' score. This was later discontinued. The first perfect score of the season never occurred in the first or second week of the competition.

Public voting is conducted via a toll-free number, the ABC website, and, most recently, text messages and Facebook; contestants can vote during and immediately after each performance show. The maximum number of votes per voter per medium is equal to the number of couples performing that night, or five votes, whichever is larger. In April 2010, it was revealed that former contestant Kate Gosselin had e-mailed friends and family asking them to vote as many as 10 times each.[29] In November 2010, The Washington Post reported that online voting appeared not to require a valid email address, and accordingly that numerous votes apparently could be cast by one person.[30]

In several cases where ESPN coverage of Monday Night Football[31] airs instead on an ABC affiliate in an NFL team's home market, the program is delayed to air immediately after that station's local news, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Nightline, and a voting window confined only to the area codes of the pre-empted market is opened up to allow affected viewers to still put their votes in for the competition, though this is on a market-by-market basis (in some markets, an alternate sister station or digital subchannel carries the program live as scheduled).

Seasons 1 and 3 featured only two couples in the final week instead of three. Starting with season 16, four couples made it into the final week, although the top three finalists proceeded to dance one more time for the judges after the fourth-place couple was announced. In seasons 20, 22, 24, and 26 there were three couples in the final week, but in seasons 21, 23, 25, 27, 28, 29 and 30 there were four.

Starting in season 28, the two couples with the lowest combined total of judges' scores and viewer voting percentages are at the bottom two and in jeopardy of being eliminated. In these seasons, the judges have the ability to save one of the bottom two couples from elimination. If three couples are in danger of elimination, the couple with the lowest combined total of judges' scores and viewer votes is eliminated and the other two couples will face judges' decision, who have to vote to save one couple from elimination.

General information[edit]

Payment[edit]

On the April 18, 2006, episode of the Howard Stern Radio Show, Stern's wife Beth said that she was guaranteed to earn $125,000 for just appearing on DWTS (in season 3) and could earn up to more than double the original sum, depending on how long she lasted on the program.[32][33]

In season 21, Bindi Irwin had her payments withheld by a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge because she was a minor, which therefore required her parents to sign-off on the contract.[34] But although her mother signed, the contract lacked her father's signature, so the judge refused to validate the contract, despite Irwin's father being the world-famous naturalist Steve Irwin, whose death in 2006 had been widely covered in the news/media. The judge later validated the contract once Steve Irwin's death certificate was presented to the court, resulting in Bindi receiving a $350,000 paycheck from the show.[35]

Withdrawals[edit]

The first person to withdraw from competition was Romeo in season 2.[36] His father, Master P, took his place in the competition before the beginning of broadcasts, being partnered with Ashly DelGrosso. However, Romeo later competed in season 12[37] and finished in 5th place. He was partnered with Chelsie Hightower.

On week six in season three, Sara Evans cited her divorce as the reason for leaving the competition. No one was eliminated that week. Another withdrawal occurred during the run-up to season four on February 28, when Vincent Pastore withdrew from the competition after only one week of training. Pastore said he did not realize how much work was needed during a ten-week period, and that he was not up to the physical demands of the show. He was replaced on March 2 by Pixar voice actor John Ratzenberger who was partnered with Edyta Sliwinska.[38]

In season seven, Misty May-Treanor withdrew from the competition in week three, after rupturing her Achilles tendon when rehearsing her jive with her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy. She did not perform the routine at all nor was she scored for it; no one else was eliminated that week.

In season eight, Jewel and Nancy O'Dell were injured before the season even began and could not compete. Jewel was diagnosed with fractured tibias in both legs; she came back later in the season to perform "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" on a results show. O'Dell suffered from a torn knee cartilage.[39] They were replaced by Holly Madison and Melissa Rycroft who would be dancing with their partners for the rest of the season (Dmitry Chaplin and Tony Dovolani).

Tom DeLay, in season nine, withdrew in week three of competition due to a full stress fracture that had developed in both feet from an earlier pre-stress fracture in one foot. DeLay was declared safe before he announced his withdrawal during the October 6, 2009, results show. Debi Mazar was still eliminated that night despite DeLay's departure.

In season sixteen, Olympic figure skating champion Dorothy Hamill had to withdraw from the competition due to doctor's orders for a spinal injury. A cyst had developed near her lower spine, and was pinching off the nerve in that area. Either boxing champion Victor Ortiz or reality TV star Lisa Vanderpump would have been eliminated, but Hamill withdrew before the results could be announced, meaning that no one was eliminated that week.

In season eighteen, week three, actor Billy Dee Williams withdrew, by advice from a doctor, due to a chronic back problem (which resulted in no elimination that week).[40]

In season twenty-one, week three, reality TV star Kim Zolciak-Biermann was forced to withdraw from the competition after suffering a blood clot which resulted in a mini stroke (which resulted in no elimination that week). Tamar Braxton also withdrew from the season due to blood clots in her lungs making it the first season to have two withdrawals in it.

In season twenty eight, Christie Brinkley withdrew from the competition a week before the season premiere, due to injuring her arm during rehearsal and needing sudden surgery. She was replaced by her daughter, Sailor with only a few days to practice prior to the season premiere. Later that season, Ray Lewis withdrew from the competition in the third week due to a toe injury he sustained during rehearsal that needed surgery. This is the second season to have two withdrawals.

In Season 29 during the 8th week, television host Jeannie Mai withdrew from the show after being hospitalized for epiglottitis. As a result, the double elimination that was supposed to happen did not take place. Only one couple, Chrishell Stause and Gleb Savchenko, were eliminated that night.

In Season 31 during the 5th week, movie star Selma Blair withdrew from the show to prevent her health with MS from getting more deteriorated. This marks the first time where a celebrity got the first perfect score of the season and withdrew on the same episode. As a result, there were no elimination that first night of the 5th week.

Macy's Stars of Dance: Design a Dance[edit]

Beginning in season 7, viewers had the opportunity to vote for their favorite professional dancers (or in some cases former contestants) to perform a particular style of dance to a song, also of their choice. An online contest is also usually held so that viewers can submit drawings of outfits for the performance.

Special episodes[edit]

100th episode[edit]

The show celebrated its 100th episode on Tuesday, May 6, 2008, during week 8 of season 6.[41] More than 30 former cast members and pros returned, with interviews with Stacy Keibler, Lisa Rinna, Jerry Springer, Vivica A. Fox, Joey Fatone, Kenny Mayne, Sabrina Bryan, and former winners Kelly Monaco, Drew Lachey, and Apolo Anton Ohno. Other appearances, besides the season 6 cast, included Paula Abdul (in a video introduction), Jane Seymour, Ian Ziering, Mark Cuban, Wayne Newton, Leeza Gibbons, Harry Hamlin, Shandi Finnessey, and Hélio Castroneves. New routines were performed by Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough, Mel B and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, and by Mario Lopez with the cast of A Chorus Line, in which he was starring on Broadway. The musical guest was country group Rascal Flatts.[42]
