Three dances on Monday: The final four’s first performance is an Argentine Tango, their second dance is either a Paso Doble or Samba — one of which is a style dance they have not yet performed — and their third dance will be the Cha Cha relay, in which all couples will dance to the same song. Their Cha Cha will not be scored, but it will be ranked by the judges. The couple who takes first place in the ranking will receive 10 points; the second-place couple will get 8 points; the third-place couple will get 6 points, and the fourth-place couple will take 4 points.
Monday night’s show also includes a fierce Pro Argentine Tango performance choreographed by world-renowned Argentine Tango master dancers and choreographers Sandor and Parissa. Pro dancers Tony Dovolani,Kym Johnson, Kiki Nyemcheck, Sasha Faber and Oksana Dmytrenko will accompany Sandor and Parissa in this piece.
Macy’s Stars of Dance: On Tuesday night, in the final “Macy’s Stars of Dance” performance this season, two yet-to-be-named DWTS pros will perform a thrilling Paso Doble to Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.” All season long, fans have voted on the performance song, style, costumes and pro dancers for the season’s Macy’s Design-a-Dance.
Muppets! Also during Tuesday night’s show, the cast of Disney’s The Muppets take over the ballroom with dazzling appearances throughout the show. Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and a new member of The Muppet family, Walter, hit the stage, joined by the rest of the Muppet gang, including Fozzie Bear, Animal, Gonzo the Great, Pepe the King Prawn, Swedish Chef, Rowlf the Dog, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker, for an unforgettable performance to “Life’s a Happy Song.” The dance number is choreographed by Michael Rooney. “Life’s a Happy Song” is from Disney’s new movie, starring Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo the Great, Animal, Jason Segal, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones and Walter James Bobin.
Cobra Starship performs: Also on Tuesday’s results show, we have a truly kinetic and captivating performance from Cobra Starship featuring Sabi, performing their hit single, “You Make Me Feel,” accompanied by pro dancers Kym Johnson, Tristan MacManus, Sharna Burgess and Sonny Pederson.
AT&T Spotlight Performance: The final “AT&T Spotlight Performance” of the season highlights four talented boys, Kyle Scanlan, David Guzman, Jacob Guzman and Matt Gilmore from The Gold School in Brockton, Massachusetts. Their inspiring performance will be accompanied by female pro dancers Chelsie Hightower, Lacey Schwimmer, Sharna Burgess and Peta Murgatroyd. As one of the best dance schools in the country, The Gold School is known for producing amazing dancers.
These four particular teen boys are members of the school’s Project Moves campaign, which helps raise awareness to the bullying epidemic that continues to plague schools across the country. Growing up as male dancers, the boys have been targets of bullying themselves. However, with their common love of dance, the talented young dancers have learned how to triumph over adversity. Kyle, David, Jacob and Matt are assets to their community, incredible dancers and proof that there is nothing wrong with following your dreams.
And then there were three: At the end of Tuesday night, we will have our three finalists. Who will be leaving the fold this week?
