SAN DIEGO, April 10, 2016 – From the first time the theme was introduced three seasons ago, “Disney Week” on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ quickly became a favorite of the competitors and fans.
Ten couples will perform to songs from Disney movie favorites old and new. ABC didn’t issue an official release with the performance lineup as it has in past weeks, but many of the stars have talked about their assignments in interviews or on social media. Hat tip to our favorite fan blog, Pure DWTS, for confirming several others. We highly recommend following if you’re a fan.
Each celebrity will perform a Foxtrot, Quickstep, Waltz or Viennese Waltz, Samba, Cha Cha, or Jazz routine.
Special guest judge Zendaya will sit in for Len Goodman. There are reports Len will be out for a couple of weeks and Zendaya may return again. Other guest judges who have been mentioned including the singer Usher.
At the end of evening, one couple will be eliminated from the ballroom competition.
