WASHINGTON, OCTOBER 31, 2016 – The seven remaining couples still dancing for the Season 23 Mirror Ball on “Dancing With The Stars” celebrate Halloween tonight in their individual routines, and then face the frightful head to head dance-off for additional judges points.
The Halloween dances are enhanced with fabulous makeup and costumes as the duos interpret their favorite scares.
This week, every couple performs a ballroom or Latin style they haven’t performed on the show yet including the Quickstep, Viennese Waltz, Jazz, Argentine Tango, Tango, and Cha Cha. Whichever couple is on top of the leaderboard after round one will have immunity, cannot be eliminated and will make it to the round of six couples next week.
The remaining couples will dance off against each other in three pairs. They will dancer either a Cha Cha, Salsa, or Jive. The winner of each dance off as determined by a majority of the judges will have three points added to their scores. At the end of the show, one of these six couples will be going home.

Calvin Johnson and Lindsay Carson: Quickstep, “Dr. Bones” by Cherry Poppin’ Daddies
