SAN DIEGO, October 18, 2015 – “Dancing With The Stars” brings us a new theme week, a guest judge and fill-in co-host, and a double elimination in Week 6 on Monday.

Communities Digital News will host our weekly Live Online Chat to check it all out, and decide together whether we like it, or not so much (scroll below chat window for more information, assigned dances and voting information)..

All the couples will perform a routine familiar to the audience from movies, music videos, and more. They have been instructed to use as much of the original choreography as possible. The routines range from “Good Morning” from the movie “Singin’ In The Rain” to “”Pony” from “Magic Mike.” Iconic enough? Apparently shirtless male dancers count on DWTS.

Because no one went home during the “Switch-Up” week, there will be a double elimination at the end of the show Monday, based on two weeks’ worth of judges’ scores and fan votes. Paula Deen seems to be a lock for one of the sports, but the other is not so certain. Fan votes will make the difference.

This week’s guest judge on the show is Olivia Newton-John. Erin Andrews will be on assignment covering football Monday, so former competitor Leah Remini will stand-in for Erin. Remini has been a guest co-host and she is a positive addition to the team.

To remind you just how good the original was, enjoy a video of “You’re The One That I Want” from Grease before seeing it again on the show.

Join Communities for our weekly Live Online Chat on Monday at 8 p.m. ET. We promise it is much more fun watching and commenting with fellow fans. Try it and see!
