Season 13

The twelfth season of Dancing with the Stars premiered on March 21, 2011.

This season featured 11 celebrities, one less than the previous season.

Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke returned as hosts.

Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba all returned as judges.

On May 24, 2011, NFL player Hines Ward and Kym Johnson were announced as the winners; actress Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy placed second, and actress Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas placed third.

Kirstie Alley returned for the all star season with her original partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

DevelopmentsEdit

On the official website, a page gave people the chance to recommend celebrities they wanted to see on season 12 of the show through comments.

Defending champion Derek Hough did not return due to other obligations. He returned for season 13.

This marks Kym Johnson's second mirror ball trophy win, also making her the first professional dancer to win after being eliminated first on the previous season.

The cast was revealed on February 28, 2011, during The Bachelor, and the professional partners were revealed on March 2, 2011. Hip hop artist Romeo, injured before the beginning of broadcasts of season two, and replaced during that season by his father, Master P, was one of the competitors in season 12.
