The weekly show matches celebrities with a latin-ballroom professional. Each week this season, the celebrity and professional dance pairs will perform live choreographed Latin and traditional ballroom dance routines to popular live music performed by a 15-piece orchestra. The expert panel of beloved and sometimes maligned judges, former ballroom dancer Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba, will return for a third season to weigh in on the pairs' performances. The viewing public also gets to weigh in, by phoning in or voting online for their favorite performers. The scores are combined and the outcome will be announced during a results show the following evening.

Each Wednesday the suspense will build as the dancing couple with the lowest combined score is eliminated on Dancing with the Stars, The Results. Each results show will feature exciting live performances by award-winning, multi-platinum selling pop, country and latin musical artists.

The celebrities and their partners are:

  1. Tucker Carlson MSNBC news anchor -- and often controversial -- conservative political TV pundit and columnist. He will be partnered with professional dancer Elena Grinenko, who makes her series debut this season.
