Dancing with the Stars 10 (Courtesy Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)


Dancing with the Stars returned for a tenth season on March 22, 2010. There was not an elimination the first week of competition. The first elimination took place on March 30.

Samantha Harris did not return as co-host for this season, due to her expanded correspondent duties on The Insider and Entertainment Tonight. On March 8, 2010, Tom Bergeron announced on Good Morning America that his new co-host is season seven champion Brooke Burke. Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba continued as the judges this season.

Season ten had 11 contestants. Damian Whitewood, from the Broadway dance revue Burn the Floor, joined the list of professionals this season. Ashly DelGrosso Costa, whose last season as a pro was season three, returned. Also, Edyta ?liwi"?ska continued as the longest tenured professional on the show, having appeared on the first ten seasons.

This season, the Results Show was moved to 8 pm on Tuesdays instead of the usual 9 pm slot. This season also features other changes such as the "red room" being inside of the ballroom, enclosed by glass walls (affectionately referred to as "The Celebriquarium" by Bergeron), a balcony with a railing where the cast can stand and watch the performances live rather than on a monitor, and theme nights. Pussycat Dolls lead singer, Nicole Scherzinger won the competition over Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek and ESPN Sportscaster Erin Andrews who took second and third, respectively.

For the May 18th "Design a Dance" performance, viewers had voted in the weeks beforehand about what former female celebrity they wanted to do the dance (Melissa Rycroft), what former male celebrity they wanted to do the dance (Joey Fatone), and what song they wanted the couple's Tango to be to ("Rock and Roll All Nite" by Kiss). Also, Dancing with the Stars held an online contest where viewers could submit their drawings for outfits for the performance. The viewers then also voted for a set of costumes picked by the show's designers. The winner was Emilio Oh. His designs were turned into the costumes for Fatone and Rycroft, and he won a trip to the show.

College dance championship

Four colleges were featured in a tournament-style competition. Three individual episodes featured two colleges competing against each other in a one-dance showdown. The judges provided individual scores following each performance.

On May 11, 2010, UC San Diego (dancing the Samba) competed against Purdue (dancing the Mambo). Purdue advanced to the finals, with viewer votes offsetting their 24 to 22 deficit in judges' scores. The May 18 episode featured Rutgers and Utah Valley. Both teams danced the Cha-cha-cha, and Utah Valley won the dance-off with their score of 29 over Rutgers' 21. In the finals (on May 25), Utah Valley (dancing the Samba) topped Purdue (who danced the Cha-cha-cha) for the championship.
