DANCING WITH THE STARS
SIX COUPLES REMAIN
Monday at 8/7c on ABC


THE SIX REMAINING CELEBRITIES WILL DANCE TO MUSIC FROM SOME OF THE HOTTEST BROADWAY MUSICALS, AS WELL AS A SECOND ‘TEAM-UP CHALLENGE’ DANCE WHERE COUPLES WILL BE PAIRED, AS ‘SHOWSTOPPERS’ NIGHT COMES TO ‘DANCING WITH THE STARS,’ MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7.

Idina Menzel to Guest Judge and Perform. Special Performances From Mark Ballas and His “Jersey Boys” Co-Stars, and Leona Lewis
At the End of the Night, One Couple Will Be Sent Home

The six remaining celebrities will dance two show-stopping dances – one from some of the hottest Broadway musicals, and a second where they are paired up for a “Team-Up Challenge” – as “Showstoppers” night comes to “Dancing with the Stars,” live, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network.
 
Idina Menzel will perform her new single, “Queen of Swords,” and join Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba and Julianne Hough as a guest judge.
For the first dance, the couples will each dance a style they have not yet danced to a song from a hit Broadway musical. The teams traveled the country to see famous shows in person to get inspiration for their dances in the ballroom on Monday night.  Couples will re-create dances from “Chicago,” Broadway’s longest-running American musical, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month and playing at the Ambassador Theatre in New York; the Tony and Grammy Award-winning hit musical “Jersey Boys”; multi-Tony Award-winning “Cats,” one of the most recognizable and longest running shows, recently revived on Broadway; “Sweet Charity”; “The Wiz” and the Tony-nominated “Waitress.” Each couple will perform either a samba, Argentine tango, waltz, Charleston, paso doblé, contemporary or jazz.

Following their first dance, each couple will be paired up with another couple to perform in the “Team-Up Challenge.” Each team will dance together to one song, and for a portion of the dance, the two celebrities will dance together without the assistance of their professional partners. Each team will perform either a paso doblé, contemporary or jazz routine. The judges will score the “Team-Up Challenge” dances. The points from the “Showstoppers” routine and the “Team-Up Challenge” will be added together for the final judges’ scores. 

At the end of the night, one couple will be eliminated, and the five remaining couples will advance to the semi-finals.

The couples will dance to the following “Showstoppers” songs (in alphabetical order):

Marilu Henner & Derek Hough – Samba – “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)” from “Jersey Boys,” featuring a guest performance by Mark Ballas and his “Jersey Boys” co-stars, Michael Lomenda, Kristofer McNeeley and Adam Zelasko
Laurie Hernandez & Valentin Chmerkovskiy – Argentine Tango – “Cell Block Tango” from “Chicago”
James Hinchcliffe & Sharna Burgess – Jazz – “A Brand New Day” from “The Wiz”
Calvin Johnson Jr. & Lindsay Arnold – Waltz – “Memory” from “Cats,” featuring a guest performance by Leona Lewis
Terra Jolé & Sasha Farber – Charleston – “If My Friends Could See Me Now” from “Sweet Charity”
Jana Kramer & Gleb Savchenko – Waltz – “She Used to Be Mine” from “Waitress”

The Team-Up Challenges are as follows and will dance to the following songs:
Team-Up #1: James & Sharna/Calvin & Lindsay – Paso Doblé – “No Good” by Kaleo
Team-Up #2: Jana & Gleb/Laurie & Val – Contemporary – “Bird Set Free” by Sia
Team-Up #3: Marilu & Derek/Terra and Sasha – Jazz – “Big Noise from Winnetka” by Bette Midler
