SAN DIEGO, September 21, 2015 – Two nights, two dances and two eliminations in week 2 on “Dancing With The Stars.” DWTS fans get to double their pleasure with two shows and two performances from each competitor.
But it also means two couples will leave by the end of Tuesday night.
Most seasons, the competitors don’t have to learn two routines until several weeks into the season. For Season 21, DWTS producers are putting on the pressure. Several couples who struggled with choreography in Week 1 might have an even rougher time this week. But at least the couples won’t have to dance both of their routines back to back just yet.
This week’s theme for both nights is a new to DWTS, “Hometown Glory.” The couple will dance two routines, one for the professional and one for the star about the places that shaped who they are today. On Monday, it’s the star’s story.
On Tuesday, it’s the pro partner’s story.
One couple will be eliminated on Monday, based on last week’s scores and fan votes. Another couple will be eliminated on Tuesday, based on this week’s scores and fan votes.
So one of our pro dancers won’t get to perform his or her routine.
It is likely that either Kim and Tony or Chaka and Keo are going home. Based on attitude and lack of enthusiasm, it should be Kim Zolciak Biermann.
Who do you think is going home first? Vote in our poll and let us know, then join our weekly chats as we offer our own expert commentary along with yours during the show.
It’s a lot more fun watching with friends.
“Dancing With the Stars” returns for Week 2 on Monday, September 21, at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific, and one couple will be eliminated Monday; on Tuesday, September 22, 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific, a second couple will be eliminated.
