The last season was held in 2017 and the 9th season will be held in 2019.

There are elimination rounds every week, and elimination is done as per the audience voting and scores given by judges. All in all, the winners are selected based on their performance.
It is a family entertaining dance show which was aired on Star One in the first season but then it started broadcasting on Star Plus for the next consecutive seasons till now. The participant celebrities are couples in their real life; otherwise, they can’t participate in this show. The show is produced by Balaji Telefilms, and the format of the show is quite accessible. The celebrities compete with each other to win the trophy by performing different forms of dance with different styles, themes and tunes. The judges give scores to the couple based on their dance, bonding and intimacy during the dance.
Every week the couples are eliminated from this show according to their scores and audience votes. This procedure continues till finale and then champions are decided on grand finale day. Season 8 was a little bit different in terms of scoring and voting because all contestants were not celebrities.
