Music's Brightest Stars to Perform Wednesdays on "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show"

[via press release from ABC]


One Couple Will Be Eliminated Each Wednesday

British Pop Icon Tom Jones Kicks off a Season-Long Series of Dazzling Vocal Performances

Professional Dancers and Dance Troupes Also to Perform Each Wednesday

Hosted by Tom Bergeron (�America�s Funniest Home Videos�) and Samantha Harris (�E! Entertainment�), �Dancing with the Stars the Results Show� returns for what promises to be another stellar season, beginning WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13 (8:00-9:01 p.m., ET). The results show airs Wednesdays following the �Dancing with the Stars� performance show on Tuesday nights.

British icon Tom Jones will be the first among music�s most popular acts to perform on one of television�s biggest shows. Each Wednesday, a different singing sensation from various music genres will serenade fans with their most popular hits and latest singles. Audiences will also be treated to performances ranging from salsa to jive to hip-hop, from the hottest dance troupes and professional dancers, all leading up to the dramatic elimination of the couple receiving the lowest score.

Tom Jones, the Welsh-born crooner who has sent many hearts aflutter for four decades, takes the stage with a stirring rendition of one of his most popular songs. Known for such hits as �Its Not Unusual,� �What�s New Pussycat,� �She�s a Lady� and �Kiss,� Tom will be sure to ignite the audience with a memorable performance� and perhaps pick up a few more articles of women�s lingerie to add to his collection.

Also on this Wednesday�s results show, the celebrities step aside as their professional dance partners take the stage together for the first time to perform a stunningly choreographed mambo. They�ll dazzle audiences with their ballroom dancing prowess and show the world just how it�s done.

Viewers will also not want to miss a step of our featured dance number, as a different group of professional dancers showcases a thrilling routine each week. In addition, they�ll be treated to an encore performance from Tuesday night�s standout couple as determined by judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

One couple will be eliminated each Wednesday until one team is crowned champion on the season finale of �Dancing with the Stars.�

�Dancing with the Stars� is the U.S. version of the international smash hit series, �Strictly Come Dancing.� This version is produced in America by BBC Worldwide. Conrad Green is executive producer and Izzie Pick is co-executive producer. Rob Wade and Matilda Zoltowski are supervising producers. Alex Rudzinski directs.
