Los Angeles (KTNV) -- It's almost time for celebrities and dancers to lace up their dancing shoes. Dancing with the Stars is back for season 17.

Contestants come from music, reality television, science and sports.

The change this year: One night of entertainment instead of two. That means the Monday night performance show will also feature the elimination of a contestant.

Die hard fans might remember back to the first season when the show only aired one night per week. It was also only one hour long, and the cast featured six contestants instead of the current cast of 12.

Catch the two-hour premiere on Monday, Sept. 16 beginning at 8 p.m. on ABC.
