SAN DIEGO, March 31, 2014 – The stars get to shake it with their original professional partners one more time before the first shake up of the season on Week 3 of “Dancing With The Stars” with challenging Contemporary and Jive routines plus a Rumba and Waltz thrown in as of publication time.
The theme of the week is a long time favorite brought back season after season, a dance symbolizing the star’s “Most Memorable Year.” Most performance are emotional for the competitors. But it might just be the warm-up for the water works when the stars find out which new pro partner they will end up with next week after “The Switch” takes place.
Join us on Communities for our weekly live DWTS chat at 8 p.m. ET, and we will find out how this is all coming down together.
It’s somewhat complicated and no one is quite sure how it’s going to work. If you’d like to get in on this experiment, ABC has an online tool on its DWTS web page here to help you connect the stars with a new partner. You can vote until 11:59 p.m. PT on Monday night, March 31.
It could be a hot mess the producers regret forever. But in the meantime this week, we have Billy Dee Williams and Emma Slater dancing a waltz. Messy enough for you?
The first of several guest judges joins the regulars this week: Robin Roberts of “Good Morning America,” who says she’s taking her assignment very seriously.
Join our LIVE CHAT for “Dancing With the Stars” tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
