Season 8

The seventh season of Dancing with the Stars premiered on September 22, 2008 as a part of ABC's fall line-up.

Instead of 12 couples like previous seasons, this was the first season to showcase a lineup of 13 couples.

This season introduced four new dances: Hustle, Salsa, Jitterbug, and West Coast Swing, as well as Team Dancing.

Tom Bergeron and Samantha Harris returned as hosts.

Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba returned as judges, with Michael Flatley having appeared temporarily as a guest judge for Len Goodman during week 6.

On November 28, 2008, actress Brooke Burke and Derek Hough were announced as the winners; football player Warren Sapp and Kym Johnson placed second and singer Lance Bass and Lacey Schwimmer placed third.

DevelopmentEdit

CastEdit

The official cast announcement was made on the morning of August 25, 2008 on Good Morning America. This is the third season to have its cast announced on GMA.

Misty May-Treanor ruptured her achilles tendon during a training session. The injury forced her to withdraw from the competition. Her withdrawal cancelled an elimination.
