Season three of Dancing With the Stars premiered on September 12, 2006, on the ABC network.

For this season, the scoring system was changed. Fan vote only counted for 25% of the total score and scoring was now translated directly from percentages rather than into ordinals. The judges scores were added up, and each performer was given points based on the percentage of the total points distributed among all performers. (For example, a team received a score of 25. A total of 207 points were awarded to all nine performers. The team received 12.08% of that total, so that team earned 12.08 points. The couple happens to be Sara & Tony.) The fan vote was handled the same way, with the points based on how much of the total fan vote the star received. (So, in the same example, if the team earned 15% of the total fan vote, their grand total is 27.08 points.)[1]

On November 15, 2006, former NFL running back Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke were announced the winners, marking the second win for Burke.[2]

Cast[edit]

Couples[edit]

The number of couples competing expanded to eleven from the ten in the previous season.

On October 12, 2006, Sara Evans announced her withdrawal from the competition to be with her kids after filing for divorce from her husband, Craig Schelske.[3] In a "final appearance",[4] a pre-taped interview with Evans about her decision was shown on the October 17 episode. Willa Ford stated on Headline News' Robin & Company that ABC had invited her to return to the competition, but she declined.[5] At the end of the October 18 results show, after showing the bottom two, it was revealed that there would be no elimination for the week due to Evans' departure.[6] The scores of week six were combined with the scores of week seven for the October 25 elimination. Evans returned for the season finale.
