-American version of, once again, a British show. This is the American version of British show Strictly Come Dancing.
-Basically the premise of the show is a panel of judges rate dancers. The dancers are usually a celebrity of some sort with another celebrity of some sort doing some kind of dancing. Past competitors include Olympic athletes, supermodels, actors, singers, astronauts, teen heartthrobs.
-Each pair performs a dance and they vie for high votes from the audience and the judges.
-Each pair that gets a low score is removed until there is one pair.
