"DANCING WITH THE STARS" THEME - CO-HOST BROOKE BURKE-CHARVET LET GO FROM DANCING WITH THE STARS
When Dancing with the Stars returns for its 18th season on March 17, there will be at least one notable absence.

THOUSANDS MISTAKENLY BELIEVE FOOTAGE OF LAST YEAR'S DAYTONA 500 WAS THIS YEAR'S RACE AS 2013'S WINNER JIMMIE JOHNSON GETS AN OUTPOURING OF CONGRATULATIONS WHILE SITTING IN HIS MOTORHOME
Jimmie Johnson's phone started blowing up yesterday while he was sitting in his motorhome — nowhere near Victory Lane. Johnson was hailed as the Daytona 500 champion all over the place yesterday - he was trending on Twitter and even had friends congratulating him via text message — despite the race being in a rain delay. Showers halted the race after 38 laps. Fox Sports responded by showing a replay of last year's season opener, the one in which Johnson won his second 500 and Danica Patrick made history by becoming the first woman to lead laps in The Great American Race. Fox ran a crawl across the bottom of the screen, saying the 2013 race was being shown while yesterday’s race was being delayed because of rain. But thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, of people failed to get the message. “I hear I won the #Daytona500?” Johnson posted on Twitter. “Haha! I also have friends confused and texting congratulations to me.” Fellow drivers had fun with the widespread error, too. “Wait a minute! I'm confused, did @JimmieJohnson win or not?” Clint Bowyer tweeted.
