Are you a "Dancing with the Stars" aficionado? Do you always know how
the judges are going to vote? Now you can put your dance expertise to
the test (without any difficult routines to remember!), as ABC.com
launches the "Dancing with the Stars Fantasy Dancing Game," beginning
Mon., March 19.
At the culmination of Season Four of "Dancing with the Stars," one grand prize winner, with the most Fantasy Dancing points, will receive a trip for two to Los Angeles, with hotel accommodations and two private dance lessons with two-time U.S. and World American Ballroom Champion Nick Kosovich from "Dancing with the Stars."
To participate in the "Fantasy Dancing Game," log onto ABC.com, register for "Fantasy Dancing" and each week select the couple you believe will get the highest and lowest score. If you are correct, the scores they receive will be added to your account; if you are wrong, no points are added. Players will also have opportunities to double points on their picks and add additional points by guessing the answer to random questions for that week — such as whether any of the costumes will have feathers, or if one of the judges will give a standing ovation. Weekly picks may be changed until the East Coast broadcast begins, and new picks can be made for the following week the day after the show. Go to ABC.com for complete rules and prize restrictions.
"Dancing with the Stars’" fourth season will premiere Monday, March 19 with a two-hour premiere (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET). Hosted by Tom Bergeron ("America’s Funniest Home Videos") and Samantha Harris ("E! Entertainment"), the celebrities will perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned Ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
"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 Productions. Conrad Green and Richard Hopkins are executive producers and Izzie Pick is co-executive producer. Rob Wade and Matilda Zoltowski are supervising producers. Alex Rudzinski directs.
