SAN DIEGO, November 7, 2016 – The six couples still competing for the Season 23 Mirror Ball Trophy on “Dancing With The Stars” are so close to the finals they can see the trophy in their hands. It is the toughest time to leave the show, just a week or two shy of getting the chance to compete for the win.
In a brand new theme for the show, “Showstoppers Week” gives each couple a song from a Broadway musical along with a dance style they haven’t yet performed. Each couple got to take a road trip to see the famous shows in person to get inspiration for their routines on Monday.
Each couple will perform a Samba, Argentine tango, Waltz, Charleston, Paso Doble, Contemporary, or Jazz. Shows range from longtime favorites like “Sweet Charity,” “The Wiz,” and “Jersey Boys” to the new Tony-nominated hit “Waitress.”
Tonights assignments are:
Calvin Johnson and Lindsay Arnold: Waltz, “Memory” from “Cats,” featuring a performance by Leona Lewis
James Hinchcliffe and Sharna Burgess: Jazz, “A Brand New Day” from “The Wiz”
Jana Kramer and Gleb Savchenko: Waltz, “She Used to Be Mine” from “Waitress”
Laurie Hernandez and Val Chmerkovskiy: Argentine Tango, “Cell Block Tango” from “Chicago”
Marilu Henner and Derek Hough: Samba, “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)” from “Jersey Boys,” featuring a guest performance by Mark Ballas and his “Jersey Boys” co-stars
Terra Jole and Sasha Farber: Charleston, “If My Friends Could See Me Now” from “Sweet Charity”
