QUICK TAKE

SCORING FOR THE ALL-STARS HEATS UP! THE JUDGES WILL HAVE MORE SCORES TO CHOOSE FROM, ON "DANCING WITH THE STARS: ALL-STARS"

All-Star Couples Will Be Able to Receive Half Points in Addition to the Standard 1-10 Scores

"Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars" Premieres Tonight, Monday, September 24 at 8:00 p.m., ET on ABC

Beginning tonight on the premiere episode of "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars," the judges will be able to award whole and half points up to 10 (for example, 8.5, 9, 9.5) to accommodate and reflect the higher degrees of difficulty and nuances in performance that this season's All-Stars will bring to the dance floor.

"With the standard of dancing so high and the qualities of our stars so closely matched, we thought it would help the judges to be able to make finer distinctions between performances this season," said Conrad Green, executive producer, "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars."

From former champions to fan favorites, including a celebrity voted in by fans, the All-Star cast along with their professional partners return to the ballroom tonight on the season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars," MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

AT&T customers may also vote by texting the word "VOTE" and entering the number that corresponds to the team they want to support (message and data rates may apply).
