dancing with the Stars is the Italian version of the BBC talent Strictly like dancing. The program, hosted by Milly Carlucci with the participation of Paolo Belli, has been broadcast on Rai 1 since 2005.

Their performances are voted by the jury of experts and, subsequently, by televoting. The ranking that is determined by adding the two votes sends two competitors in the nomination.
