Dancing With the Stars
The ABC television show first aired in 2005 as the American version of the British show, Strictly Come Dancing. The show pairs celebrity contestants with professional dancers in a weekly dance competition featuring competitors learning a new dance style each week. The live performances are judged by a panel of dance and choreography professionals, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba. In addition to the judges’ scores, contestants are competing for fan votes by phone, online, and through Facebook. Past celebrities that have competed on the show include professional athletes, actors, singers, models, and prominent business people. The show is hosted weekly by Tom Bergeron and former Dancing With the Stars contestant Erin Andrews.
This current season features a wide range of 12 celebrities competing for the mirror ball trophy. Season 22 of Dancing With the Stars includes celebrity contestants such as Super Bowl 50 champion Von Miller, journalist Geraldo Rivera, and actress-model Mischa Barton.
