SAN DIEGO, April 7, 2014 – It’s the week of the dreaded Switch Up on “Dancing With The Stars” tonight. Every star will dance with a new partner this week. It is only for one week, then everyone returns to their original pairings.
The new pairings and allegations by numerous fan websites about vote rigging by the producers has created a great deal of anxiety in the DWTS fan universe. Seriously, you should be more excited about who got killed on “Game of Thrones” last night, and who’s going to replace David Letterman.
Nevertheless, the accusations about the whole things being a sham are pointless. Fans should enjoy the change of scenery. It’s only week four. The top stars will all advance safely. At this stage, it doesn’t really matter who goes out during the middle of the season, because the stars under the top tier group are all going home before the finals anyway.
All couples will dance a new style for them and no two couples will dance the same thing. Although the show isn’t officially revealing the pairings until tonight, detectives sifting through clues on Instagram and Twitter plus a review of paparazzi photos has revealed the lineup and the assigned dances. See our unofficial list below. We’ll stand by its accuracy.
Who are you most looking forward to seeing? Vote in our poll, then join Communities tonight for our weekly Live Chat for the show at 8 p.m. ET. We plan to have fun with the switchups. No whining allowed.
Videos of dances can be seen at the end pages of the chat…
