'Dancing With The Stars' Goes 'Gangnam Style'

October 24th, 2012 8:37pm EDT
Oppan Gangnam Style
Dancing With The Stars pros and contestants Cheryl Burke, Emmitt Smith, Kirstie Alley, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Kelly Monaco, Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Peta Murgatroyd, and Gilles Marini took to the dance floor for a little "Gangnam Style" for their Team Dance Monday night.

The song has made Korean singer PSY an overnight sensation as his hit single continues its reign as perhaps the biggest guilty pleasure since Los Del Rio's "Macarena" in the mid-90s. "Gangnam Style" refers to a lifestyle associated with the Gangnam district of Seoul.

Tuesday PSY was spotted at the United Nations Headquarters ...

The professional pairs for the upcoming all-star edition of Dancing with the Stars have been announced, and not everyone has the chance to dance with their previous partner.

Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough pair up, although Johnson won season 8 with someone else: Mark Ballas (his partner is coming up).

Who Will Be A 'Dancing With The Stars' All-Star?

May 16th, 2012 2:07pm EDT
Mario Lopez
We knew back in April, thanks to a loose-lipped Mario Lopez, that ABC would be airing an all-star version of their dancing competition Dancing with the Stars. Finally, the network has officially announced the alternate version of the show, which lets us wonder - who will be on it?

Lopez, obviously, is in unless ABC is sour that he let loose he was asked to be on it before the network announced the show. TV Guide reported Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown, Sabrina Bryan, Gilles Marini and Kyle Massey are in.

The other night, Tom Bergeron said past winners would compete as well. That means Kelly ...

Ralph Macchio Eliminated on DWTS
One more week and we’ll be calling ‘Dancing With The Stars’ season 12 over, and I haven’t ever seen a season like this. Oh, I know that Tom’s announcer voice is always going on about “the most talked about cast” or “the tightest competition” or the “most mind-blowing thing on earth” (okay, maybe not that one, but he might as well), but they say that every single season. This season really is tight, and it’s getting tighter.

Before we jump into the elimination show, and all the extraneous things it entails, we take an hour for an extraneous freestyle special. It was just what i...

Project Runway
With the 5th Season of "Project Runway" well underway, we're starting to wonder if the show can ever top the wackiness of Season 2 or the "fierceness" of Season 4. This season has no shortage of high-profile guest stars, as we've already seen Brooke Shields and Olympic speedskater Apolo Ohno, while prominent designers Cynthia Rowley and Diane Von Furstenberg, and rapper LL Cool J are on tap for future episodes. But, where are the larger than life characters? Where are the Santinos and the Christians? The famous guest stars are supposed to be just gravy. So far, this season has left us wond...
