SAN DIEGO, April 4, 2016 – “Dancing With The Stars” bring fans one of their favorite theme weeks on Monday night, “Most Memorable Year.” Stars pay emotional tributes to people or places which changed them forever. For many, it is the first time the stars connect to their dance routines with their hearts as well as their feet. The stars and their pros feel the pressure to do justice to their routine on behalf of those they honor.
So get out your tissues and join our Live Fan Chat as we watch, comment, applause and shed a tear or two. We start our chat at 8 p.m. ET as the show goes live from Hollywood.
Each celebrity will perform a Foxtrot, Waltz, Contemporary, Samba, Jive, Tango or Paso Doblé for their routines in Week 3.
Wanyá Morris dances to the powerful memory of singing the national anthem at the Olympics with Boyz II Men. As promised, Kim Fields celebrates her bus trip from Harlem to Los Angeles for a TV commercial assignment, which ultimately led to her breakout role as Tootie on “The Facts of Life.” Von Miller brings back the memory of Super Bowl 50 and his MVP honor. Marla Maples commemorates the year her daughter Tiffany Trump was born, and Doug Flutie honors his son, born with autism.
Special guest Andra Day performs her hit song, “Rise Up,” as well as “Rainbow Connection,” alongside dances by Jodie Sweetin and Doug Flutie.
At the end of evening, one couple will be eliminated from the ballroom competition. This week’s assignments:
