Patrick Swayze Honored On DWTS


One of the biggest shows on TV is reportedly set to pay tribute to Patrick Swayze.

The 'Dirty Dancing' star will be honored on "Dancing with the Stars" in a special tribute this Sept. 23, according to People.

The beloved actor made a guest appearance on the show during its first season -- showing his friend John O'Hurley some moves in rehearsals. He also came out to show his support by attending the finale.

"We have some very fond memories of [Patrick] coming to help us when we were a tiny little show way back when," "Dancing"'s executive producer Conrad Green tells the mag.

"He was one of the few people to integrate dance with being an A-list actor," Conrad adds. "He inspired many people and many of our pros to dance. We want to honor the great moments he's brought to film by getting our dancers to do their interpretation to some music from his films."
