Dancing with the Stars returns on Monday night and 13 celebrities and their pro dance partners will kick off the competition for the Season 23 Mirrorball trophy. The two-hour premiere begins at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, September 12. If you live in L.A. or San Francisco, the DWTS premiere airs live starting at 5 p.m. PDT.
Voting for your favorite couples this season is important if you want to help them become the Season 23 champs. According to ABC, voting begins on Week 1 and fans will be able to vote every Monday night throughout the season.

Print out the list of contestants, voting phone numbers and online voting details below so you can quickly reference the information and support your favorite couple as they compete to win the Season 23 Mirrorball trophy.
According to ABC, all 13 couples will be safe on premiere week. Although fans will be voting for the first time during Monday night’s premiere, no couples will be eliminated on Week 1. Next week, eliminations begin on the second nights of the two-night show that airs Monday, September 19 and Tuesday, September 20.
This season’s cast was introduced on Good Morning America late last month, and odds makers are already predicting which couples will secure a spot in the DWTS Season finale. Sports Bovada predicts that Laurie Hernandez and Valentin Chmerkovskiy will be crowned the winners, with Amber Rose and Maksim Chmerkovskiy will take second place, and Vanilla Ice (Robert Van Winkle) and Witney Carson will come in third.
Time will tell if Sports Bovada‘s predictions turn out to be correct, but, along with the couples’ performances and judges’ scores, your votes will play a major part in the outcome of this season.
