Female pros perform: Remember when the guys danced last week? Tom Bergeron said they would be giving equal time to the lady pros and troupe dancers, so this is it. That number will open the show.
Brad Paisley performs: Country superstar/superhottie Brad Paisley will perform his most recent No. 1 hit, “Southern Comfort Zone.”
JLo and Bocelli duet: In their first national TV appearance together, international stars Andrea Bocelli and Jennifer Lopez will perform a sensual new rendition of the classic Latin song, “Quizas, Quizas, Quizas,” featured on Bocelli’s new album Passione.
Derek Hough joins AT&T Spotlight Performance: This sounds like it will be really special. The first “Spotlight Performance” of the season features 17-year-old Brilynn Rakes, a native of San Diego, who was born with nystagmus and cone dystrophy. Those conditions have caused her to become legally blind. However her circumstances have not impeded her passion for life; she is an accomplished dancer who has won several awards and was recently honored with a full scholarship to Julliard’s summer workshop. Rakes will be partnered with her favorite pro, Derek Hough. The couple will dance a beautiful routine to “Stars” by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
Someone goes home: At the end of the night, another couple will have to shimmy out the door, leaving us with the top nine. Who will be eliminated this time?
