How will Dancing with the Stars eliminate its dancers?

Some adjustments are in place in a pre-recorded season and to keep things fair on the floor.

Filming for Dancing with the Stars: All Stars gets underway tonight in Sydney, with returning stars such as Tom Williams, Jamie Durie, Bec Hewitt and Ada Nicodemou.

For the first time the show is pre-recorded, which will entail some changes from the previous production.

It will screen as an intense two week season on Seven, rather than a single episode per week.

TV Tonight can reveal the cast is divided into Group A / Group B.

Each episode sees half the cast dancing, while the others watch on.

Eliminations take place at the end of each episode, with a leaderboard and eliminations determined by combined scores from the judges and a studio audience.

That also means some dancers will have presumably rehearsed routines they never get to show… it’s brutal out there.

Seven is yet to confirm an airdate, hosts or judges.

  1. What’s with 7 doing two weeks shows? This and The Voice. Stop messing with the format when the format didn’t need to be messed with. I don’t see how this is going to work in two weeks. Are they doing a show every night?

  2. I have it on good authority a new “tentpole” concert is currently under wraps. It’ll be set in a television station’s mailroom with suspense building from the opening of each letter…

  3. I can’t see this being the “event TV” Seven is touting it as. Obviously they’re testing the waters to see if it’s another “tentpole”, especially with Tag failing, but I don’t think DWTS is the answer.
