'Dancing With The Stars': 7 Biggest Scandals On The Ballroom Flo
Hitting its stride after 19 seasons, "Dancing with the Stars" has been known for introducing the world of ballroom dancing to the nation.

Still, there are dark secrets that lie behind the curtains of the ballroom floor and some of them promise to floor even the most hardened "DWTS" fans!

DWTS Season 17 Champ
Tonight one of our favorite couples will be taking home that mirrorball to display on their mantle- will it be Amber and Derek, Jack and Cheryl or Corbin and Karina? After a performance by Enrique Iglesias and some fluff from the pros gushing about how their partners deserve to win, we are as anxious as you are for ABC to cut to the chase and announce the winner. But we all know that this is prime time television, which will be jam packed with ‘filling’ until the last minute when we find out who is crowned the Season 17 champion.

'Dancing With The Stars' Cast Revealed For 17th Season -- We Pick The Winner

September 4th, 2013 3:07pm EDT
Dancing with the Stars 17th season cast
Would you believe that this is the 17th season of Dancing with the Stars? This season, ABC will be only airing one episode of the show per week instead of the usual two, due ratings slipping through the years. However, producers have pulled together a rather interesting cast of characters this season. Let's break down who we think will win it all:

Bill Engvall dancing with pro Emma Slater

We won't see much of Bill nor newcomer Emma. This is the prime suspect for first off the show. Verdict: 12th place.

Jack Osbourne dancing with pro Cheryl Burke

I'm a big fan of Jack, but it's n...

Jaleel White's Classic Goodbye
The show kicked off with an explosive encore performance, by classical week favorite, Maria and Derek. And during the evening we welcomed back season 14 favorite, Gavin Degraw, for a couple performances.

There was also a tear jerking and touching performance by a dancer whose life changed overnight due to a brain aneurysm, and an exciting ballroom battle that ended with Cheryl’s team receiving the winning trophy.

Despite the fact that someone would be sent home, the night was another great one. Here were the judges scores going into the elimination.

'Dancing With The Stars': Maria Menounos Challenges Katherine Jenkins For Top Spot

Maria Menounos Challenges Katherine Jenkins
The Motown Celebration ended with the “Empress of Soul,” making her exit, which left seven of the stars to battle it out for the seventh week in the ballroom. Now you would think that since it was classical week the intensity and fire would burn out, but things seem to get hotter with Maria and Derek and the steamy shirtless team pose doble dance. I don’t know what it was, but the pose doble ruled the night.

The night started off with a performance by award winning violinist and throughout the evening we had the pleasure of hearing the lovely voice of 12-year-old classical singer, Jackie ...

There was also a performane by Award winning group Boyz II Men, who gave us “One More Chance," and the Macy’s stars followed with a wonderful performance to David Guetta and Usher’s “Without You.” The night was very eventful, and once again came the time where one of the stars would be sent home.

'Dancing With The Stars' - Just Give Katherine Jenkins The Mirror Ball Trophy Already

April 24th, 2012 2:03pm EDT
Katherine Jenkins
There's still ten dancing teams left in Dancing with the Stars, but it might be time to call it a match - Katherine Jenkins is running away with the competition.

The singer isn't well known here in the States, but that isn't stopping her from racking up the points and becoming the obvious frontrunner. In fact, Jenkins has led every week but one and has already netted two 29/30 scores, thanks to Len Goodman who rarely gives out 10s. That didn't keep him from saying "I'm gonna call you the midwife – you keep delivering week after week" to her last night after an awesome samba.

Motown founder Barry Gordy even graced the audience with his presence for one of the biggest nights of Dancing With The Stars. For week six’s Motown week the contestants danced to the rumba, foxtrot, samba, Viennese waltz and the cha-cha-cha.

And the night ended with an amazing dance off/Motown marathon, where all of the stars hit the floor and were knocked off one by one. Overall it was a g...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week Two Elimination Not A Surprise

After a killer kick off and week two’s struggles with the quickstep and jive, the stars gathered to find out who would be the first in the competition to go home. What a night! And I would say one of the most nerve-wracking. Especially since one of the contestants would be eliminated without having the opportunity to prove what they really could do on the dance floor.

However Sugarland helped ease the tension with their country tunes; and one by one contestants were told if they would be safe or placed in the bottom. The scores going into the elimination were the following in ranking orde...

'Dancing With The Stars' Finale Crowns J.R. Martinez The Hero Of The Ballroom

JR Martinez Wins 'Dancing With The Stars'
So last night ‘Dancing With The Stars’ crowned a new champion for it’s thirteenth season, and it was an outcome that I wouldn’t have predicted. Then again, I feel like I’ve been swinging back and forth all season, so it’s nothing new.

After Monday night’s show, Rob held onto the top spot, and I really hoped he would hang onto it. Here’s where the leader board stood on Monday:

1. Rob and Cheryl - 57
2. Ricki and Derek - 54
2. J.R. and Karina - 54

As usual, all the fallen stars took the stage in the first number, and it never fails to be kind of nostalgic. Which is weird, consid...

Monday night was the last night for the stars to perform for our votes, and time for the much anticipated freestyle dances, which can make or break someone’s chances of winning. We have Ricki, who started strong and just got better. She’s with Derek, who has gotten the trophy every time he’s made it to the finals (three times). Then we have Rob, who has skyrocketed to the top from humble beginnings. His amazing partner, Cheryl, won the first two seasons she was on, but hasn’t won since season three, and hasn’t been to the finals since season eight. Lastly, we have J.R., who stole every...

I was concerned for J.R. before I looked at the scores last night, but seeing that he actually fell eleven points behind the leader and nine points behind second place worried me more. Sure, Hope was still seven points behind him, but it surprised me. I knew he had a bad night, but didn’t realize quite how bad.

Last night they all had three dances to perform, with two individual rounds (the second with all of them doing the always fun Argentine tango, with it’s legal lifts), and then a relay dance. Unexpectedly, an injury hindered one of the front runners, giving one of the underdogs a chance to really shine.

Everyone always talks about how much it’s gotta hurt to be kicked off a show like ‘Dancing’ first, but I always think getting kicked off just before the end has got to hurt just as much. After eight weeks, last night’s results episode gave someone the boot right before the semi-finals.

Here’s how the leader board looked Monday night:
