Hey Dance fans! The "landmark 20th season" and 10th year of "Dancing with the Stars" has begun, and it already looks like some fierce competition. Many strong and surprising dancers hide among the twelve new contestants, and the weak links are only moderately weak. No Master Ps, Lolo Joneses, or Michael Waltrips here this season, thank goodness. But why do they bother making Derek Hough go through the motions of competing when they're going to pair him up with former Olympic gymnast Nastia Liukin? Seems like a shoo-in. But who knows, she could be terrible. It's unlikely, but anything is possible.
Lots of the pairings seem the same as in past seasons though. Tony Dovolani is again placed with an older competitor, while Mark Ballas is with the young one; Derek is with the ringer again, and Val with the surprising unknown talent. Fortunately, Peta is again paired with someone »

The only problem? It looks a lot like the same dance era we’ve been watching for the past 10 years.
In fact, for all intents and purposes, the beginning of Dancing‘s newest season unfolded exactly as you might have expected: Bruno Tonioli climbed on the judges’ table in an effort to show us how seriously he takes all of this; Derek Hough once again set the bar impossibly high with a firecracker partner in Nastia Liukin; and, perhaps least surprising of all, »
It was a big night in the ballroom - and not just because John McClane and GI Jane were in the house! Monday's installment of Dancing with the Stars kicked off the first of what the network promised would include lots of action-packed tributes to the show's 10th anniversary. The premiere episode didn't disappoint. There were lots of contemporary tunes ("Uptown Funk," "Take Me to Church"), plenty of showstopping choreography (Derek Hough, so glad you stuck around this season!) and even quadruple hanky moments (welcome to the ballroom, Army vet and amputee Noah Galloway!). No 9s or 10s were awarded just yet, »
