Featuring eight new celebrity dancers who stutted their stuff with their professional dance partners, the show was broadcast in a new time and date format.
Instead of being on on Saturday nights between 20h00 and 21h30 as previous seasons were, the show was on Thursday nights at 19h30 for an initial hour episode in which each couple performed their dance for the week.
There was an hour break from 20h30 to give viewers time to vote and the show resumed for a half an hour results episode at 21h30.
Tyrone Watkins, Salome Sechele, Dave Campbell and Lillian Phororo returned as the judges of the competition as did hosts Ian von Memerty and Sandy Ngema.
The celebrity contestants included an Olympic medallist, a journalist, a rapper, an Afrikaans music superstar and a wildlife television host.

Hip Hop Pantsula (award-winning rapper)
Patricia Lewis (one of South Africa's top-selling Afrikaans female singers)
Lieschen Botes (Wonderbra model)
Thembisile Ntaka (winner of the 2003 Popstars reality show)

Episode 8: The Finale
Each Thursday there are two broadcasts: the first is from 19h30-20h30, during which the celebrities do their weekly dance routines and are given marks out of 40 from the judges.
Thereafter follows an hour-long break to give viewers a chance to vote for their favourite couple, after which the second broadcast - the Results Show - is aired, from 21h30-22h00.
During the Results Show the results of the viewer voting are announced. The viewer votes are combined with the judges' votes and the two couples with the least amount of votes are forced into the Dance-Off.
Shortly before 22h00 the judges decide who they want to eliminate.
