Dancing with the Stars on ABC’s new season is almost here, and if you can’t wait to watch your favorite all-stars in action, you’ll love the latest news. The show is undergoing some changes for the new season, and they are also offering up a super fan contest!
Dancing With The Stars returns in two weeks for the All-Star season, and for the show’s fifteenth season, we will see some changes. This season, not only can you vote online, but the show has announced that you can now vote on Facebook at www.facebook.com/dancingwiththestars. Even more exciting is that the show has decided to do away with the “Dance Duel” for the new season, as they feel the stars are seasoned enough that the fan votes should rule! Yippee!
In addition to the changes, ABC has announced a fan contest. Check out the press release for more details:
To celebrate the upcoming season of the hit series “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars,” ABC and affiliates around the country are challenging fans to be the Ultimate “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” super fan blogger, www.dwtsblogcontest.com. Fans in key ABC Markets will have the opportunity to compete to be their market’s official show blogger for the season.

Fans in each participating market have up until September 18th to tell their local ABC affiliate station why they deserve to be the ultimate super fan blogger fortheir respective markets.

The blog will include the super fan’s take on the episodes and topics such as who they think will win, be voted off, or who showed the most style, heart or charisma.
