The seventh season of Dancing with the Stars premiered on September 22, 2008 as a part of ABC's fall line-up. Instead of 12 couples like previous seasons, this was the first season to showcase a lineup of 13 couples. This season also introduced four new dances: the Hustle, the Salsa, the Jitterbug, and the West Coast Swing, as well as Team Dancing.

Tom Bergeron and Samantha Harris return as the show's hosts. Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba continue as the judges this season, with Michael Flatley having appeared temporarily as a guest judge for Len Goodman during week six.

Only three 30s were given out this season, and all were given to the winner, Brooke Burke: once for her Foxtrot in week seven, once for her Freestyle in the finals, and once for her repeated favorite dance, the Viennese Waltz, also in the finals.

The official cast announcement was made on the morning of August 25, 2008 on Good Morning America. This is the third season to have its cast announced on GMA.

Season notes

  • Cloris Leachman became the oldest woman on Dancing with the Stars.
  • During rehearsal of their first dance, Jeffrey Ross was accidentally poked in the eye by Edyta ?liwi"?ska, suffering a scratched cornea. Against doctor's advice, Ross continued the competition. They were the first couple to be eliminated.
  • On Friday, October 3, 2008, Misty May-Treanor was injured during practice. She received immediate medical attention. At the end of the next episode, on Monday, October 6, May-Treanor announced that she had ruptured her Achilles tendon, and thus had to withdraw from the competition; moreover, she had surgery scheduled for October 7. She plans to return to volleyball competition after her recovery, stating that she had already planned to take some time off, so this injury did not affect her career. On the results show the next night, Bergeron revealed that no one would be eliminated that week because of May-Treanor's withdrawal; instead, the Week 3 scores would be combined with the scores from Week 4. He also revealed that Rocco DiSpirito would have been eliminated.
  • On Sunday, October 19, 2008, Brooke Burke was injured during the camera blocking for her Jitterbug with partner Derek Hough. She was doing a front flip and came down too hard on her right foot. She put ice on it immediately, but ended up going to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Monday morning, October 20, 2008, for treatment and X-rays. There, it was determined that she had severely bruised her foot, but as of Monday afternoon, an ABC spokesperson told People magazine that Burke and Hough were still planning to perform on that night's live show. They did just that, and went on to receive a 29 for their Jitterbug, remaining at the top of the leaderboard for the fifth straight week.
  • On the Monday, October 20 show, Tom Bergeron announced that Susan Lucci had fractured two bones in her foot, but she would still dance her Hustle that night.
  • On the Tuesday, October 21 results show, Tom Bergeron announced that Michael Flatley would sit in as a guest judge for Len Goodman during Week 6. Goodman got one week off due to an "impossible schedule," as stated by Samantha Harris.
  • Forty minutes after the Tuesday, October 21 results show Julianne Hough was taken by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for increasingly painful stomach pains. Initially Hough said she was taking a day off from the group rehearsal to relax and try and feel better. However, on October 27 she was diagnosed with endometriosis. She announced on the October 27th show that she would undergo surgery to remove her appendix on October 28, and that she would bow out of the competition until she recovers. Her partner Cody Linley worked with Edyta ?liwi"?ska for Weeks 7 and 8 of the competition. Hough returned to the show for Week 9, the semi-finals, on November 17.
  • Julianne Hough's scheduled performance for the October 21st results show was pre-recorded and postponed. It aired during the November 18th results show with Mark, Derek, and Lacey performing a choreographed routine along with Julianne.
  • On Thursday, October 30, Lacey Schwimmer reported that she has endometriosis but she would continue the show because her condition would not require surgery.
  • Due to ABC's television coverage of the 2008 Presidential Election on November 4, 2008, the Week 7 results show was moved to Wednesday, November 5.
  • Tuesday, November 25 marked the first time since Season 3 that a couple (or two) did not receive a perfect 30 for their favorite dance of the season, as Lance Bass received a 28 and Warren Sapp received a 27.
  • During the season, Toni Braxton had a tumor under her breast and was scheduled not to go on tour, though after it was removed, she reported she would.

  • For the November 11th "Design a Dance" performance, viewers had voted in the weeks beforehand about what style dance they wanted (Jive), what song they wanted the dance to ("Great Balls of Fire"), and what professionals they wanted to do the dance (Derek Hough and Julianne Hough). Also, Dancing with the Stars held an online contest where viewers could submit their drawings for outfits for the performance. Allen, Texas resident Kelly Kealy-Mayton won, and her designs were turned into the outfits for Derek Hough and Julianne Hough, and she and her husband won a trip to the show.
