Go on, admit it: Dancing With the Stars has you glued to the tube like a nude bodysuit on a ballroom dancer. Don’t worry—Annie Barrett of Entertainment Weekly is right there with you. She shares the 15 reasons she’s a Dancing fool.

  1. Stars dancing with gusto, no matter how goofy.
  2. Campy men who get campier as they get older (ahem, Jerry Springer).
  3. Out-of-control costumes: sequins, spangles, feathers, masks!

  1. Watching D-list celebs return from Land of the Has-Beens.
  2. Amazing dance moves like Mel B.’s quadruple walking splits.
  3. Glow-in-the-dark spray-on tans.
  4. End-of-season freestyles that are more f-ed up than funked up.
  5. Edyta’s obsession with legwarmers (and our obsession with her calves).
  6. Porn-style poses that get endlessly photographed.
  7. The faux-love affairs (yet still we can’t get enough of the charades!).
