SAN DIEGO, October 9, 2016 – Celebrities competing on “Dancing With The Stars” get personal with routines depicting “My Most Memorable Year” on this week’s show.
It’s already Week 5, and the competition get more ruthless as competitors who aren’t improving their ballroom skills quickly enough start facing elimination. This week, viewers will see Jana Kramer celebrating the birth of her daughter Jolie Rae earlier this year, James Hinchclifee recalling his near fatal car crash practicing for the Indy 500 last year, and Laurie Hernandez celebrating her Olympic Games experience.
Dances up for the couples this week including the Viennese waltz, paso doble, tango, jazz, foxtrot, samba, and the first contemporary routines of Season 23 from three of he couples. Calvin Johnson draws Jazz, which will show fans whether he’s a contender or pretender following his energetic Charleston in Week 4. Amber Rose needs to bring the heat with her Samba this week, or she could be in danger of going home.
Ryan Lochte and Marilu Henner are the lowest scoring celebrities remaining, but their popular pro partners Cheryl Burke and Derek Hough are drawing enough votes so far to keep them on the show.
