Dancing with the Stars is an American dance competition television series that premiered on June 1, 2005, on ABC. It is the US version of the UK series Strictly Come Dancing, and one of several iterations of the Dancing with the Stars franchise. The show was first hosted by Tom Bergeron from its inception until 2019.[2] Lisa Canning was co-host in the first season, Samantha Harris co-hosted seasons two through nine,[3] Brooke Burke-Charvet in seasons ten through seventeen, and Erin Andrews from season eighteen through twenty-eight.[4][5][6][2] The show was renewed for its twenty-ninth season which premiered on September 14, 2020 with the addition of new host Tyra Banks, replacing Bergeron.[7][8]

The format of the show consists of a celebrity paired with a professional dancer. Each couple performs predetermined dances and competes against the others for judges' points and audience votes. The couple receiving the lowest combined total of judges' points and audience votes is eliminated each week until only the champion dance pair remains.

On March 30, 2021, the series was renewed for a 30th season[9] which premiered in September 2021.[10]
