‘Dancing with the Stars’: Everything you need to know about the ‘DWTS’ September 24 premiere – dances, songs and how to vote

The two-hour season 27 premiere of “Dancing with the Stars” is on Monday, September 24 and will air live on ABC beginning at 7 p.m. CT/8 p.m. ET. Each of the lucky 13 celebrities is hoping to waltz off with the mirror ball trophy at the end of the 10-week run of this reality competition series. To do so, they will have to win over America and get enough votes each week from viewers and the three judges — Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli — to continue on in the competition.

There will be an extra episode of “DWTS” on Tuesday, with the 13 couples again taking to the floor. One couple will be eliminated based on their scores from the judges for both nights as well as their total in viewers’ votes.

To ensure that it isn’t your favorite who is sent home, you need to vote online at dwtslivevote.com or via phone at the numbers detailed below. Voting will begin when the season premiere of “DWTS” starts in the east and central time zones on Monday evening and will close early Tuesday morning (1 a.m. PT/4 a.m. ET). It will then open for a very short period of time during Tuesday’s live show after the 13 couples have danced.
