'Dancing With The Stars': Could These Stars Replace Tyra Banks As Host?

After Tyra Banks fumbled an emotionally-charged moment on Dancing with the Stars, fans have been calling for her removal from the show.

Dancing with the Stars is a popular television show that has been on the air for almost 20 years. The show features celebrity dancers from a variety of different backgrounds, competing against each other in various dance competitions.

The format of Dancing with the Stars is fairly simple. Each celebrity pairs up with a professional dancer, usually from the same background or style of dance featured in the competition that week. In each episode, the celebrity and their partner perform a dance routine, which a panel of expert judges critiques. Contestants receive points based on different criteria, such as technique, artistry, and performance. And at the end of each episode, the celebrity with the lowest score leaves the competition. Each week, a celebrity is eliminated until one celebrity is eventually crowned the winner.
