Season 8

Season seven of Dancing with the Stars premiered on September 22, 2008 as a part of ABC's fall 2008 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. This is the second season (the other being season 1) where all perfect 30s were given to one person.

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.[1][2]

Week 1: Brooke Burke & Derek Hough received a2330 (the highest score of the night) for their cha-cha-cha and received a 2630 for their Quickstep. Cloris Leachman received a1630 for her Foxtrot. While Rocco DiSpirito & Karina Smirnoff earned their Foxtrot a 1430 and Jeffrey Ross & Edyta Śliwińska received a 1230 (the lowest score of the night) for their cha-cha-cha. The September 23 episode featured competition and elimination on the same night. Each couple that was called safe performed a new routine. At the end of the episode, Jeffrey Ross was eliminated. Ted McGinley was eliminated on the results show the following night.

Week 2: Warren & Kym performed an encore for their Paso doble. Brooke & Derek held the top spot for the second consecutive week, while Cloris Leachman & Corky Ballas were at bottom of the judges' leader board with 15/30. Kim Kardashian & reigning champion Mark Ballas were eliminated.

Week 3: Brooke & Derek became the first couple to receive a 10 from any of the judges; in this case, it was awarded by Len Goodman. Cloris and Corky danced their wacky Jive leaving the judges speechless and landed at the bottom of the judges' leaderboard for the third consecutive week. Misty May-Treanor was forced to withdraw from the competition after rupturing her Achilles tendon during a training session. Because of her withdrawal, no elimination took place that week. However, it was announced on the results show that, of the remaining contestants, Rocco DiSpirito had the lowest combined total of scores and votes and would've been eliminated. Each couples combined total for that week was added to their total for the following week, in order to determine who would be eliminated next.

Week 4: Cloris & Corky received their highest score of the season, 2230 for their Tango, but they found themselves in the bottom two along with Rocco & Karina. However, Rocco DiSpirito was eliminated.

Week 5: Eight couples performed four new dances: the Hustle, the Salsa, the Jitterbug, and the West Coast Swing. Susan & Tony, and Warren & Kym performed the Hustle, Cloris & Corky, and Maurice & Cheryl performed the Salsa, Brooke & Derek, and Cody & Julianne performed the Jitterbug, and Lance & Lacey, and Toni & Alec performed the West Coast Swing. After the results show, Julianne Hough was rushed to the hospital because of severe stomach pain. She was later diagnosed with endometriosis. Toni Braxton was eliminated.

Week 6: For the first time since the start of the competition, Brooke & Derek were not in first place, narrowly losing out to Lance Bass & Lacey Schwimmer. Cloris & Corky received a 1530 (the lowest score of week six). They were eliminated, but the audience giving them a standing ovation for the last six weeks.

Week 7: Brooke & Derek became the first couple to receive a perfect 30 from the judges, on their Foxtrot. Cody Linley danced with a substitute partner, Edyta Śliwińska, while Julianne Hough had surgery to remove her appendix. During Week 7, the show introduced Team Dancing and the score each team received was added to the score of their first dance of the evening. The producers named Warren and Susan captains, and had them randomly choose dances to perform. They were then allowed to choose teammates: the resulting teams were Team Cha-cha (Lucci, Linley, Bass, and their partners) and Team Paso doble (Sapp, Greene, Burke, and their partners). Susan Lucci was eliminated.

Week 8: During the Latin round, each celebrity was required to dance a 15-second solo, apart from his/her partner. Cody Linley danced with Edyta again this week, while Julianne recovered from her surgery. Warren Sapp & Kym Johnson earned their first 10 for their Tango and received the encore for the week. Maurice Greene was eliminated.

Week 9: Julianne Hough returned to the show to dance with Cody Linley. Brooke & Derek earned their jive a 2130, their lowest score of the season, while Lance & Lacey earned their highest scores of the season for their Mambo a 2830 and the Jitterbug a 2930(10, 9, 10), giving them total of 5760 the highest score of week nine. Cody Linley came in last place and was eliminated.

Week 10: Burke received a score of 2830 for the Group Samba and earned a perfect 3030 for the Freestyle round. During the Tuesday night finale, the eliminated couples returned to the dance floor for their final performances including the unstoppable Cloris Leachman. Jeffrey Ross performed a stand-up comedy routine, in which he "roasted" the three finalists. Lance Bass & Lacey Schwimmer received third place, Warren Sapp & Kym Johnson received second place, Brooke Burke & Derek Hough became the champions of Dancing with the Stars season seven. This was Kym Johnson's second time finishing in second place, the first time being in season four with celebrity partner Joey Fatone.
