    At the end of the current season of Dancing with the Stars, they announced an All-Star season, where viewers could vote for their favorites to come back.

    To me, no matter what the judges' score is, the mark of a good performance is one that makes me say "I want to see that again!" and use my TiVo to get an instant replay.
    And the fun of voting is to send the message that you want to see that couple again.

    So I thought it would be fun to have an all-seasons thread to post about our favorite performances of all time.

    One moment that I remember vividly is watching Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya's Argentine tango. It was during one of the spectacular lifts that I had the WHOA moment: Evan is a singles skater. He didn't know bupkis about partnering before he came on this show. And here is he is doing those lifts as if he were an ice dancer and it was no big deal.

    I wanted him to have more of those breakout moments, but it never happened. So yeah, I'm curious -- I'd like him to come back, and see if more intense competition would get him to bust out again.

    Who do you want to see again?

    I'd like to see a lot of the 2nd place celebs come back. Many of them were good enough to win, but maybe didn't have a big enough fan base or a good enough freestyle.

    Some of my favorites that I would enjoy seeing again are Mel B, Kelly Osbourne, Gilles Marini, Ralph Macchio, David Arquette... and I am certain others I can't recall.
    I can't really decide until I know if the partnering will be the same or they will get switched up.

    I wonder how big a challenge it will be to get celebs to return for another season now that they have experienced how exhausting the schedule is. It takes over their lives for the duration.

    I wonder if and how they will prevent returning people from taking private dance lessons between now and the show.

    I agree on Mel B, Kelly Osbourne, Gilles Marini.

    I'd also like to see Holly Madison. I think she got a bit gyped as she had much less time to prepare than the other celebs in her season as she was a last minute replacement. She may really be that bad, but I think with more prep time she might have done better.

    I'll have to go check out the list of choices. I have a hard time even remembering who has been on the show.

    edit: Has voting for the All Stars started? Or maybe it's over? I didn't see anything on the DWTS page on the ABC site.

    I looked on the site before I posted the thread, but I didn't see anything either -- otherwise I would have posted a link in the OP.

    To refresh your memory - here's a link to the main article about the US show on Wikipedia, and one to the List of Competitors.

    From what I could see, on the DWTS page there is a comment section, where you leave a comment for which celebs you want to see on All-Stars. Nearly every comment is "Roshawn (sic) and Chelsee (also sic)" or some other star voted off this season. OK, you morons... they asked for the celeb, not for the pro. And try to pick someone from a prior season... geez.

    My guess is that the All-Stars will have to pair up with a different pro than the one they competed with... makes it fair, and they can pick two+ celebs that a pro danced with.

    bump...The All Star cast is supposed to be announced Friday!

    Regarding the fan pick, saw this on EW...not sure it's really a spoiler, but one name is mentioned, so thought I'd hide it for those sensitive to such things.
    ABC will let fans pick a returning star. The network will announce the names of three former Dancing contestants (we’re hearing Carson Kressley is one of them) and let viewers vote on which celebrity gets the final spot on the show.

    NO Staci Kiebler - I will bet George did not want to do audience duties.

    At least some strong dancers. Now the question is will they get decent pairings!
    Would Juliane come back and who would she choose? Most likely not!

    Bristol Palin again?
    Ugh.
    Although Apolo and Gilles might make up for it.

    Not bad. We didn't start watching until S4 or S5 so it will be fun seeing some of the earlier winners.

    And then...
    If Kelly Monaco ends up winning, will there be a special added episode with Monaco competing against John O'Hurley to determine the "real" all-star champion?

    The pairings were announced earlier this week.
    PARTNERED IN THE PAST:
    Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke (season 3)
    Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson (season 4)
    Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani (season 8)
    Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas (season 11)
    Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (season 12)
    NEW PARTNERS:
    Kelly Monaco (season 1) and Valentin Chmerkovskiy
    Drew Lachey (season 2) and Anna Trebunskaya
    Apolo Anton Ohno (season 4) and Karina Smirnoff
    Helio Castroneves (season 5) and Chelsie Hightower
    Gilles Marini (season 8) and Peta Murgatroyd
    Shawn Johnson (season 8) and Derek Hough
    Pamela Anderson (season 10) and Tristan MacManus

    I haven't seen anything on the winner of the fan vote. I really hope it's not Sabrina, but I'm afraid it will be her. I would much rather see Carson or Kyle.

    Wonder how big an advantage it is to be partnered with your previous person?
    Wonder how much lead time they have for rehearsals this year?

    I know it is Derek's last season- dare we hope Mark rides off into the sunset with him?? :D

    DWTS All Stars
    - at least for the first week
    - so
