Dancing With The Stars
Dancing with the Stars, launched in 2005, is an Emmy-award winning dance competition where celebrities are paired with professional dancers and face weekly eliminations based on the viewers’ votes.
Based on the British TV series Strictly Come Dancing, the show’s animated judges Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba and Len Goodman have been on board since the beginning. Derek Hough joined the judges’ table during season 29 in 2020 after having previously been a professional dancer on the show. His sister Julianne Hough also served as judge for several seasons.
Tyra Banks has hosted the show since season 29 when she replaced Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews. Alfonso Riberio joined the model as a cohost for season 31.
The show has made household names out of several dancers, such as Cheryl Burke, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Karina Smirnoff, Derek and Julianne, Mark Ballas and Lindsay Arnold.
The series has also been known to resurrect the careers of several celebrities, including Kelly Osbourne, Shannen Doherty, Mel B., Mario Lopez and Lil’ Kim.
