It's that time again, folks. Tonight—from 8:00 to 10:00 PM ET on ABC—this season's 11 Dancing with the Stars hopefuls will sashay across the ballroom for the judges' scores and your votes. More inside, plus your open thread!
You may have noticed that the title for this post no longer reads, "Live Blogging..." and instead reads, "LIVE." That's because we decided to spice things up a bit and try out a different headline. Don't worry, though, as everything else is the same as it always has been.
As mentioned above, tonight's episode airs on ABC and will run from 8:00 to 10:00 PM ET. And because nobody was kicked off after last week's premiere, all 11 contestants are still in on the action.
In case you're behind on the action, Whitney Jefferson put together this great little dossier on the stars that make up our 10th season. Here they are:
