SAN DIEGO, October 9, 2016 – The number of duos is reducing, the dances are getting longer and the competition becoming fierce. This is a favorite tear jerker week as our stars reach back into their memories to express their strongest emotions through dance.
No fan can forget Bindi Irwin’s emotional tribute to her father, Steve Irwin.
Dances up for the couples this week including the Viennese waltz, paso doble, tango, jazz, foxtrot, samba, and the first contemporary routines of Season 23 from three of the couples.
Calvin Johnson draws Jazz, which will show fans whether he’s a contender or pretender following his energetic Charleston in Week 4. Amber Rose needs to bring the heat with her Samba this week, or she could be in danger of going home.
Join our Live Online Fan Chat as we watch, and we’ll decide together whether we like what we’re seeing.

Amber Rose and Maks Chmerkovskiy: Samba, “Woman Up” by Meghan Trainor
