Dancing With The Stars: My Most Memorable Year

Have the tissues handy Monday night. This DWTS theme brings out the emotional side of the stars.


SAN DIEGO, April 4, 2015 – Theme weeks continue on “Dancing With The Stars” for season 20. Every week so far has had a theme, and we know at least the next two weeks will also have themes, “Disney Week” and then “The Switch-Up.” This week, the show brings back one of its original themes, “My Most Memorable Year.”

The stars are deeply invested in these routines, with added pressure to perform because they are often dedicated to someone important in their lives. Fans have been tipped off about several of the routines. Willow Shields will dance to a song from “The Hunger Games” series and reflect on her role in the series; Bachelor Chris Soules will depict his run and engagement on the reality series; and Suzanne Somers will be dancing to the “Three’s Company” theme song. She couldn’t possibly avoid it.

Among the 10 couples we will see three rumbas, the first two contemporary routines and first jazz routine of the season, and a scattering of styles, including a foxtrot, tango, Argentine tango, and waltz.

Watch for Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess to continue breaking barriers when they perform their contemporary routine to the country song “American Soldier” by Toby Keith. It should be a highlight of the show.

One more couple will make their exit at the end of the show. Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev are sitting in last, with Michael Sam and Peta Murgatroyd and Suzanne Somers and Tony Dovolani just ahead of them. There is a gap to the rest of the competitors, so expect to see one of these three saying goodbye on Monday.

The show’s producers also promise “an announcement” on Monday’s show. It isn’t likely to be life-altering.

If you missed Riker Lynch and Allison Holker’s routine from Latin week, it was tied for first and well worth seeing or enjoying again.
