The top nine celebs of the spring 2014 season will dance with new partners on the Week 4 Performance Show. According to a network press release, the votes are in and the celebs and pros know their new partners, but the couples won’t be revealed to the public until the live show, when they’ll be introduced throughout the evening.
As ABC added, the April 7 show will begin with an opening number featuring the entire cast, followed by each celebrity tackling a new style of dance with their new partner. Two-time DWTS pro champion, Julianne Hough will return to guest judge for the second time, alongside Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba.
Also, “Macy's Stars of Dance” will return for its first installment of the season, with creative oversight by Derek Hough. The performance will showcase “explosive” choreography that blends Latin and Contemporary dance styles and will feature both the pro and troupe dancers. So You Think You Can Dance all-star Kathryn McCormick will also perform in the routine, so that’s pretty cool.
It's possible Switch Up spoilers will leak later in the week, or you could follow some of fan predictions out there, based on Twitter analysis. Here are some predictions for the female celebs, and here are more for the male celebs.
