The Best 'Dancing With the Stars' Routines Ever

Dancing with the Stars has been on ABC since 2005. Viewers love to watch celebs dance with their pro dancer partner week after week in cool costumes, with introductions from host Tom Bergeron. There have been nearly 30 Stars' seasons and it really doesn't get old.

Recent contestants dancing their way to the Mirrorball Trophy include Lauren Alaina, Sean Spicer, Christie Brinkley (replaced by her daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook), Lamar Odom, James Van Der Beek and more. These celebrities but in a lot of work each week to learn new choreography with their partners. Who knew the foxtrot and the quickstep could be so complicated?
