SAN DIEGO, April 19, 2015 – The eight remaining couples hope to feel the ocean breeze in their hair and smell the salt air as they perform routines to a variety of Spring Break inspired songs this week on “Dancing With The Stars.”

Songs range from classics by the Beach Boys and Martha and the Vandellas to club favorites by Destiny’s Child and Calvin Harris.

After the individual dances, we will see the first team dances of Season 20. There will be two teams, Team Trouble and Team YOLO. Scores from the team dances will be added to the individual scores on the leaderboard to determine this week’s standings.

Team Trouble is dancing to “Trouble” by Iggy Azalea featuring Jennifer Hudson. The team captain is Rumer Willis. Members including Val Chmerkovskity, Riker Lynch and Allison Holker, Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev, and Chris Soules and Witney Carson.

Team YOLO performs to “Wipeout” by the Surfaris. The team captain is Nastia Liukin. Team members are Derek Hough, Willow Shields and Mark Ballas, Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson, and Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess.

Several couples at the bottom of the leaderboard can breathe a little easier this week. There will be no elimination. Next week, ABC adds a results show on Tuesday nights for the remaining four weeks of the show. Did we mention that it’s sweeps month? We can’t blame ABC for wanting to make the most of the strong ratings “Dancing With The Stars” still gets week to week.

The couple who might benefit most is Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson, who were in last place and at greatest risk of leaving. But Chris Soules and Witney Carson and Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev need to step it up too.

The “Dancing With The Stars” tenth anniversary show date has also been set for Thursday, May 7. Fans get a big bonus blast of ballroom this season. Enjoy it whie you can.
