Dancing with the Stars is an American reality television show in which celebrity contestants and professional dance partners compete to be the best dancers, as determined by the show's judges and public voting. The series first broadcast in the summer of 2005, and nineteen complete seasons have aired on ABC through Fall 2014. During each season, competitors are progressively eliminated on the basis of public voting and scores received from the judges until only a few contestants remain. These finalists participate in a finale, from which a winner is determined.[1] Celebrities appearing on Dancing with the Stars include "actors, singers, comedians, musicians, entrepreneurs, athletes, reality stars and where-are-they-now personalities".[2]

As of season 19, 211 celebrities have competed, five of whom withdrew from the competition: Sara Evans of season three left the show to "give her family full attention" after filing for divorce, Misty May-Treanor of season seven was forced to pull out after an ankle injury, Tom DeLay of season nine reportedly withdrew "due to stress fractures in both of his feet," and Dorothy Hamill of season sixteen withdrew due to a severe back injury.[3][4][5] Billy Dee Williams of season 18 also quit due to a back injury. The youngest competitor is Zendaya at age 16 who competed in season 16. At age 82, actress Cloris Leachman of season seven was the oldest contestant to compete on the show.[6] At age 51, singer Donny Osmond of season nine was the oldest contestant to win the competition.[7] At age 17, Shawn Johnson of season eight was the youngest contestant to win. Forty-two professional dancers have partnered with the celebrities, and those who participated in the most seasons include Cheryl Burke and Tony Dovolani with eighteen seasons each. The nineteen winners of the show, in chronological order, are Kelly Monaco, Drew Lachey, Emmitt Smith, Apolo Anton Ohno, Hélio Castroneves, Kristi Yamaguchi, Brooke Burke, Shawn Johnson, Donny Osmond, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Grey, Hines Ward, J.R. Martinez, Donald Driver, Melissa Rycroft, Kellie Pickler, Amber Riley, Meryl Davis and Alfonso Ribeiro. The eleven professional partners who have won are Alec Mazo, Cheryl Burke (twice), Julianne Hough (twice), Mark Ballas (twice), Derek Hough (five times), Kym Johnson (twice), Karina Smirnoff, Peta Murgatroyd, Tony Dovolani, Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Witney Carson.
