Dancing with the Stars, which started from the UK, is currently expanding to around 60 countries and the 28th season is running in the US. Dancing with the Stars, a fusion of talents, emotions, humour and competition, is well-known as a popular family reality show.
In India for the past 10 years, the same dancing with the stars show has been run under the name ‘Jhalak Dekhlaja’. The show has become extremely popular in Nepal after Nepali daughter Teriya Magar won the title of the ninth season of Jhalak Dekhlaja Season-9.
According to a worldwide format, Dancing with the Stars will have 12 different star constantans from the various field while pairing them with 12 professional choreographers will perform with the star. There will be 2 host and 3 judges in the program.
The show pairs a number of well-known celebrities with professional ballroom dancers, who each week compete by performing one or more choreographed routines that follow the prearranged theme for that particular week. The dancers are then scored by a panel of judges. Viewers are given a certain amount of time to place votes for their favourite dancers, either by telephone or (in some countries) online.
The couple with the lowest combined score provided by the judges and viewers is eliminated. This process continues until there are only two or three couples left; when they have competed for the last time one couple is declared the champion and wins a trophy.
