Viewer voting will be limited to live votes that are cast during the East Coast broadcast time frame. Meaning if you're watching on the West Coast, you are allowed to vote between 5 p.m. and 7p.m., but you'll be essentially voting on the previous week's dances, as you won't have seen the dances everyone on the East Coast is voting on.

So clearly, there are a lot of big changes, and fans will have to wait to see how that ends up impacting the competition.

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
