SAN DIEGO, April 14, 2014 – Unlike the last few weeks on “Dancing With The Stars,” there will be a true elimination at the end of tonight’s “Disney Week” theme show. Two weeks of scores from Weeks 3 and 4 will be added to this week’s fan votes to determine who goes home.
Join our weekly Live Chat as we critique the routines and root for our favorite competitors… and wait to find out who is leaving the ballroom.
Announced this weekend, former DWTS champion and Disney vocalist (from “Mulan”) Donny Osmond will return to the ballrom as guest judge for Disney Week.
Sitting in the bottom third and needing fan votes to save them are NeNe Leakes, Drew Carey, and Candace Cameron Bure.
The dance routines and song assignments are all public this week thanks to clues and leaks on social media. Some Disney song choices were a given. But no “When You Wish Upon A Star” or “A Whole New World”?
NeNe Leakes should have lots of fun letting her personality shine in a Foxtrot to “Cruella De Vil” from “101 Dalmations.” Let’s see if the DWTS costume department can come through with a great Cruella costume to match.
The night’s princess is Amy Purdy, who will dance a Waltz with Derek Hough to “So This is Love” from “Cinderella.” The symbolism of the girl and the glass slipper will not be lost on anyone. Get your Kleenex ready, this should be a lovely moment created for the show featuring one of its most inspiring competitors ever.
“Dancing With the Stars” returns for Disney Week on Monday, April 14, at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific Time on the ABC Television Network.
