 DANCING WITH THE STARS IS BACK!!! _

Tonight on KTUL/8  for Season 17-and “The VOO Crew” has the deets, yo-

The stars on Season 17 are:

  • Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi with Sasha Farber
  • Valerie Harper and Tristan MacManus
  • Saved By the Bell and Showgirls star Elizabeth Berkley will dance with Valentin Chmerkovskiy
  • Amber Riley with Derek Hough
  • Footballer Keyshawn Johnson and Sharna Burgess
  • High School Musical star Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff
  • Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani
  • The Voice's Christina Milian is paired with Mark Ballas
  • Bill Nye "The Science Guy" dancing with Tyne Stecklein
  • Pretty Little Liars and Army Wives actor Brant Daugherty with Peta Murgatroyd
  • Jack Osbourne with Cheryl Burke
  • Blue Collar Comedy's Bill Engvall and Emma Slater



... The most notable switch, of course, is combining the performance and results show into one two-hour block on Monday nights -- a format that the show hasn't utilized since its breakout first season in the summer of 2005.

... Each episode will open with a "massive dance number" and end with a pair being eliminated, with the exception of tonight's premiere. Producers think the extra day of rest will probably make a huge difference in terms of people's sanity and hopefully will make the quality of dancing better.

... With Maksim Chmerkovskiy sitting out his second season in a row and Kym Johnson taking a break from the show, troupe members Emma Slater and Sasha Farber have been promoted to pros.

... The set has a new look. Gone is the skybox; instead, the celebrity and dancer seating area will be situated on the floor near the judges' table — which will also be shifted to the opposite side of the ballroom.

... The show is also adding a makeup room and a rehearsal room, where co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet will chat with the contestants before and after their performances, while Tom Bergeron will run the show from the main stage.

We’ll have details/highlighst and results every Tuesday at 8:15am.
