"Dancing with the Stars" (DWTS) has become one of the most popular shows on ABC, now in its 11th season, combining competitive ballroom dancing with celebrities. The show will air its 200th episode tonight at 8:00 PM bringing viewers a new twist on the dances that are normally performed. DWTS will bring back past celebrity dancers to judge this season's contestants who will "recreate and update" the past celeb dances. The celebrity judges from past DWTS seasons that will be on hand tonight include: Kelly Osbourne, Mel B, Drew Lachey, Helio Castroneves, Emmitt Smith and Gilles Marini. It will actually be interesting to see if former NFL star, Kurt Warner will be dancing to a routine inspired by Emmitt Smith's prior dance moves. Who would have thought pro football players had dance skills? Not only will the remaining competitors be performing a routine with their professional dance partners, but they will also take part in a group competition, with former contestants Apolo Anton Ohno and Kristi Yamaguchi as the team captains. The routine panel of judges, Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli, will determine the winner of the team competition and that person will be safe from elimination tomorrow night - a huge incentive considering the fate of the dancers is normally determined by America's voting efforts. Tomorrow night's "Results Show" will air from 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM with promising entertainment from Taylor Swift and Rod Stewart who arguably are some of the most popular performers to grace the DWTS stage - probably not the best "Results Show" to DVR and fast forward until the end where the kicked off dancer is revealed. For fans that can't get enough celebrity based reality TV time, the lineup for the anticipated "Skating with the Stars" will be revealed on Tuesday night's "Results Show."
