Dancing With the Stars

The concept of the show is to pair a celebrity with a professional dancer in an attempt to win a high score from a panel of three judges and then a high number of votes from the viewers, who can call in and vote online. The person who receives the lowest score is eliminated, but they are allowed to dance one last dance at the end of the show.

Is DWTS just a popularity contest? These dancers work so hard and being in first place, then voted off?

popularity contest rings about right, this is a show for your viewing entertainment, the winner will not win a scholoship to dancing school, lol, they are not going to teach anyone, they do not get a contract like American Idol, they simply get a mirror ball trophy!! Listen very carefully as you are told time and time again "VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE COUPLE" WHY is it every year people don't understand this? Your favorite couple is the ones that you love to see, the ones that make you smile, Not necessarily the best technical dancer. Relax and enjoy the show

I totally agree with msredboot7!!! Relax and enjoy the show!!! Choose to vote or not, that is up to you! I love DWTS!!! I also have watched from the beginning and the dancing improves each season which is awesome!!! I love to watch all the friendships that are made from this show and how it changes their lives forever, the stars and the professionals!!! Some of the professionals and the troupe come off of So You Think You Can Dance. Way Cool!!
