SAN DIEGO, May 1, 2016 – The reality of a week without an elimination will hit hard at the end of Monday’s night show on “Dancing With The Stars.” Two couples will leave the show in a double elimination. Ouch. With the competition tight, someone’s favorites are going home.
The eight couples remaining will all dance a routine to music from favorite musical icons including Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, the Jackson 5, Stevie Wonder, the Rolling Stones, and U2. Each celebrity will perform a Tango, Viennese Waltz, Quickstep, Samba, Foxtrot, Jive or Salsa.
The assignments in alphabetical order are:
Antonio and Sharna: Tango, “Paint It Black” by the Rolling Stones
Ginger and Val: Viennese Waltz, “I Have Nothing” by Whitney Houston
Jodie and Keo: Quickstep, “For Once In My Life,” Stevie Wonder
Kim and Sasha: Samba, “ABC” by the Jackson 5
Nyle and Peta: Foxtrot, “Beautiful Day” by U2
Paige and Mark: Jive, “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner
Von and Witney: Salsa, “A Little Less Conversation” by Elvis Presley
Wanyá and Lindsay: Foxtrot: “I Say a Little Prayer” by Aretha Franklin
The stars then perform their first team dances. For the first time ever in 22 seasons, it’s a battle of the sexes with the men facing off against the women. The men have named themselves “Team James Brown.” The women have gone with “Team Beyonce.”
In another first, the opening number featuring the show’s professional ballroom dancers will be shown in full 360 degree virtual reality. It can be seen simultaneously with the broadcast on the “Dancing With The Stars” Facebook page, www.facebook.com/dancingwiththestars, and also on YouTube at www.youtube.com/dancingwiththestars. The virtual reality will let viewers experience the show as if they are with the dancers on the ballroom floor. It expands beyond the traditional bounds of a TV or mobile screen
On last week’s leaderboard, Wanyá Morris stands at the top, with Paige VanZant and Antonio Brown right behind him. Ginger Zee, Von Miller, and Kim Fields are all tied at the bottom. Fan votes will be crucial in determining who goes home. One wrong step is all it takes at this point.
