"Dancing With The Stars" premiered in June of 2005, showcasing stars in an Amerian dance competition. Celebrities pair up with professional dancers in an attempt to learn some of the most compelling ballroom dances, despite having no dance experience. The successful show is now in its 23rd season. "Dancing with the Stars" is the American version of the British show, "Strictly Come Dancing."

Week seven goes back in time to focus on Era music from a different decade between the early to late 1900s. As the couples perform, they compete for judge’s points along with audience votes in hopes of getting closer to winning that Mirrorball Trophy. The couples will also engage in team dances, with one couple being eliminated by the show’s end.

Those competing in week seven include Maureen McCormick, Jana Kramer, Terra Jolé, James Hinchcliffe, Calvin Johnson Jr., Laurie Hernandez, Ryan Lochte, and Marilu Henner.

Head judge Len Goodman returns after being gone to oversee the British competition for a couple of weeks. Joining him, as usual, are Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough, and Bruno Tonioli. Host Tom Bergeron and co-host Erin Andrews add to the finesse and excitement of the show, "DWTS."

Predictions of who will dance for the prize

As the week's progress, the dancers improve significantly, with a few receiving the highest score everyone hopes for, a ten! Maureen McCormick had some tough weeks but her partner, Artem Chigvintsev helped to build her confidence and put her best foot forward.

With such an amazing cast of dancers in season 23, there is no telling who will walk away with the shiny Mirrorball Trophy.
