'Dancing with the Stars' planning to honor Patrick Swayze with tribute

By Christopher Rocchio, 09/17/2009 

Dancing with the Stars announced it will pay tribute to actor Patrick Swayze, who died on Monday at the age of 57 due to pancreatic cancer.

The ABC reality competition series will honor the Dirty Dancing star during its first live ninth-season results show on September 23, People reported Wednesday.

"He was one of the few people to integrate dance with being an A-list actor," executive producer Conrad Green told People.

"He inspired many people and many of our pros to dance. We want to honor the great moments he’s brought to film by getting our dancers to do their interpretation to some music from his films."

Swayze made a guest appearance on Dancing with the Stars first season in 2005 when he taught friend and fellow actor John O'Hurley a few moves during rehearsal.  Swayze also supported O'Hurley by attending the first-season finale.

"We have some very fond memories of [the late actor] coming to help us our when we were a tiny little show way back when," Green told People.

Dancing with the Stars ninth season will premiere Monday, September 21 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
