[via press release from ABC]

ONE GOOD TURN DESERVES ANOTHER! ACTOR JOHN O'HURLEY AND SOAP STAR KELLY MONACO WILL GO TOE-TO-TOE ONCE AGAIN IN A LIVE BALLROOM COMPETITION DANCE-OFF

America Will Decide Who the Winner Is, with Results to Be Announced During a September 22nd Telecast

In the spirit of good-natured competition, champion Kelly Monaco and her professional dance partner, Alec Mazo, will meet runner-up John O'Hurley and his professional partner Charlotte Jorgensen, once again on the dance floor. "Dancing with the Stars: Dance-off" airs TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20 (8:30-10:00 p.m., ET, LIVE on the East Coast/tape delayed to the West) on the ABC Television Network.

Audiences were dazzled by John and Charlotte's elegant waltzes and raved at Kelly and Alec's spicy Latin dances, resulting in a thrilling and hotly debated finale. For this special event, both champ and runner-up have agreed to reunite for one more electrifying showdown!

The dance-off will feature each couple performing several styles of dance -- Latin, ballroom and freestyle. Our colorful and animated judges will return to give their critiques, but only viewers' votes will count... America will truly decide the winner of the dance-off. Viewers are invited to weigh in with their votes via phones and the internet immediately following the broadcast on the 20th. And unlike the series, they won't have to wait a week to learn the results of their votes. This time, results will be announced during a separate telecast which will air on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 (9:00-9:30 p.m. ET).

In addition to more fabulous costumes and the sensational live band, also included in the special will be dance demonstrations by the professional dancers from the series: Ashly Delgrosso, Jonathan Roberts, Edyta Sliwinska and Louis van Amstel.

The six week run of the first American version of "Dancing with the Stars" emerged as the biggest summertime hit of 2005. It was the most-watched summer series on any network in the last five years, averaging over 16 million viewers. The show consistently ranked No.1 in it's time period among Total Viewers and across each of the key demos (Adults 18-34, Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54), as well as among Teens 12-17 and Kids 2-11.

"Dancing with the Stars" is the U.S. version of the international smash hit series, "Strictly Come Dancing." "Dancing with the Stars: Dance-off" is produced in America by BBC Worldwide. Richard Hopkins (UK) and Conrad Green (USA) are executive producers. Izzie Pick is supervising producer. Alex Rudzinski directs.
