On May 6, 2008 DWTS had a special two-hour edition to commemorate its 100th episode.

The most frequently-given score for this season was 29, which was awarded 12 times to leaders in several weeks.

Kristi Yamaguchi and her partner, Mark Ballas, won the competition. Kristi & Mark combined for four of the five perfect scores given out this season; she received three of them for her three Finals dances, giving her a perfect 90 out of 90. This season, along with the previous season, season 14 and season 15 are the only ones without a score under 15 or without a score under 5 given from any judge.

Famous quotes containing the words season, dancing and/or stars:

    How many things by season seasoned are
    To their right praise and true perfection!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Come, let me sing into your ear;
    Those dancing days are gone,
    All that silk and satin gear;
    Crouch upon a stone,
    Wrapping that foul body up
    In as foul a rag....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    To understand
    The signs that stars compose, we need depend
    Only on stars that are entirely there
    And the apparent space between them. There
    Never need be lines between them, puzzling
    Our sense of what is what.
    John Hollander (b. 1929)
