Tom Bergeron won the award for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program for "Dancing With the Stars" at the Emmy Awards on Sunday, Sept. 23.
Bergeron was up against "The Amazing Race's" Phil Keoghan, Betty White from "Betty White's Off Their Rockers," Ryan Seacrest of "American Idol" and "So You Think You Can Dance" host Cat Deeley.
It was Bergeron's seventh Emmy Award nomination and first win for his work on "DWTS."
Since it first debuted in 2005, "DWTS" has been wooing viewers across America by showcasing celebrities doing dances that range from the cha-cha to the two-step. Playing host to almost 200 celebrities and counting, it has been a network success for ABC.
The show returns on Monday, Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. with an all new season of all-stars. Ballroom winners and fan favorites of the past will be putting on their dancing shoes once again in what looks to be an exciting season.
Many of the returning stars are looking for retribution for their eliminations of the past, however, former 98 Degrees band mate Drew Lachey has no qualms about bringing home another mirror-ball trophy, according to the NY Daily News. He was on the show six years prior and won the competition alongside Cheryl Burke in the show's second season.
"I need one for each side of the mantal, yes. My life has done a complete 180 since I last did the show. I mean, my wife was pregnant with my first child and we were living in L.A. at the time, and now I have two kids and we live in Ohio," he said. "So my life and my perspective and my priorities have completely shifted since the last time I was on the show."
Former "Bachelor" contestant and ex-Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, Melissa Rycroft, has also started a family her own since she last performed with Tony Dovani on season 8 of the show.
She admitted the following: "To me this feels like a completely different ball game. After going through pregnancy, labor and delivery, I feel like I have a whole new body. I definitely feel older than I did last time, even though that was only three years ago and I'm only 29!"
