Dancing With the Stars 2013 is back with an all-new week of dazzling performances, shirtless Chmerkovskiys (hopefully!), and Derek Hough’s wasp face. Oh, and this week, the Season 16 contestants will be dancing to the musical stylings of Stevie Wonder. Fun!
Here’s the list of what each DWTS pair — and their pro counterparts — will be dancing:
Aly Raisman & Mark Ballas — Foxtrot
Andy Dick & Sharna Burgess — Samba
Ingo Rademacher & Kym Johnson — Tango
Jacoby Jones & Karina Smirnoff — Quickstep
Kellie Pickler & Derek Hough — Quickstep
Sean Lowe & Peta Murgatroyd — Samba
Victor Ortiz & Lindsay Arnold — Rumba
Zendaya & Val Chmerkovskiy — Cha-cha-cha
Get the details on everyone’s Stevie Wonder performances here.
Well, now that you know what to expect, join in on the fun below as Wetpaint Entertainment gets ready to live recap the Week 6 Performance Show. And since we know you have a lot of feelings (we do too!), tell us what you think of the episode in the comments.
We’ll try our best to answer all of your questions, comments and concerns. Keep refreshing for more, and until the performances start, here’s a sassy GIF of Val to tide you over.
8:00 — Hunter Hayes and Stevie Wonder? Interesting mix.
8:04 — Does this mean the DWTS band gets the night off? (Please?)
8:05 — Loving Andy Dick's postal service uniform. Kellie Pickler — and her hair! — looks flawless.
8:06 — Zendaya and Val are up first! They'll be dancing the Cha-cha to Stevie's hit "Do I Do."
8:08 — Is Val the new Derek?!
8:09 — These two are adorably singing along to the song. Get cuter, you two. Also, Zendaya looks like she's having so much fun in that ballroom, and that's what it's all about. Right, people?
8:09 — "There's one word that sums up great dancing: Zendaya." Len
8:10 — "You can Cha-Cha me anytime." Oh, Bruno. Do you know she's only 16?
8:11 — 10-9-10 for Zendaya and Val! Still waiting for that 10 from Len.
8:18 — "I think they're getting a sense that I'm taking it very seriously." Things Andy Dick says on DWTS.
8:19 — We love how much determination Andy has. He's working hard on his technique. Let's hope it works out...
8:20 — Is it the most technical Samba? No. But did Andy look like he was having the time of his life? Yes.
8:21 — Bruno calls it a "splendid shamble of a Samba."
8:22 — Look at Len being nice to Andy!
8:23 — 6-6-6 for Andy and Sharna. It's not the best score — and Andy is clearly disappointed — but here's hoping the viewers will keep him in the competition for at least another week.
8:29 — Sean Lowe is just SO AWKWARD. Avert your eyes. I cannot deal with it.
8:31 — At least Peta's wig is better this week.
8:32 — I can't look at my TV right now. Sean is shirtless and shimmying. It's kind of too much. Homeboy has no rhythm.
8:33 — That was mean, Len. Way to talk Andy and then insult him.
8:34 — "Look on the bright side: You could always get a job as a stripper." Way to lighten the mood, Bruno.
8:35 — 7-SEEEVEEEN-7 for Sean and Peta.
8:41 — Wait, can we talk about Sean's spray tan?
8:42 — Aly is wearing a "I HEART BOSTON" t-shirt.
8:42 — "Not only am I from Boston, but I was supposed to be at the Boston marathon."
8:43 — Mark Ballas looks so dapper tonight.
8:45 — So essentially Len is saying that his favorite song is "Little Things" by One Direction.
8:46 — Aly needs to work on her frame, but she's definitely the dark horse in this competition.
8:47 — "He always makes me smile." Aly on her relationship with Mark. Awwww!
8:48 — 9-9-9 for Aly and Mark's Foxtrot!
8:52 — Did Witney Carson just sexually harass Stevie Wonder? Get it, girl.
8:54 — I wish Ingo was more exciting than he actually is. I just don't get it. He's too forgettable.
8:57 — Side note: Val is shirtless!
8:58 — "Finally! Welcome to the game!" says Carrie Ann. We have to admit: Ingo has improved, but is he memorable? Not so much.
8:59 — 8-8-8 for Ingo and Kym. His best scores to date!
9:00 — "You're wrong, already." This is how Derek shows his love.
9:06 — I can't stop looking at Kellie's hair... and her amazing body.
9:07 — That was an amazing Quickstep. Maybe my favorite of the season.
9:07 — "Perfect, perfect, perfect," says Carrie Ann. Except for one little thing: space in the holds!
9:08 — Len calls it his favorite dance of Season 16. I strongly disagree. Val and Zendaya's Argentine Tango is still my favorite.
9:10 — 9-10-10 for Kellie and Derek! And yes, that's a 10 FROM LEN!
9:16 — We're preparing ourselves for the awkwardness of this Rumba.
9:17 — This isn't really dancing, is it? Or is this TV on slow motion?
9:18 — Even Lindsay can't save this one, Victor.
9:19 — "When you're with her, you're very, very charming." So Lindsay makes him better? SHE'S THE ONLY ONE DANCING.
9:21 — 6-6-6 for Lindsay and Victor. So who's going home: Victor or Andy?
9:27 — "I'm just gonna dance." Love you, Jacoby.
9:29 — Jacoby could just do the splits for two straight minutes and I'd give him a 10.
9:30 — Room for improvement: frame, footwork, etc. But Jacoby is still one of our favorites.
9:31 — Len is not a fan. He tried to make a Beatles metaphor happen. Awkward all around.
9:32 — 8-7-8 for Jacoby and Karina. Is Jacoby injured? He looks like he might be in pain...
9:34 — Anna is just the best.
9:41 — "I feel like I am the adult, and they're all 16-year-olds," so says Zendaya.
9:43 — Derek encouraging Andy is the cutest thing ever.
9:44 — "I love our team but they're all on different levels." is team Paso in trouble?
9:45 — Alright Ingo, you have my attention.
9:45 — I really hope Jacoby jumps over Karina's head during every dance.
9:47 — Len called it a "spirited effort." Ouch.
9:48 — "You guys killed it." Aww, Val! Stop being the best team leader ever. If only the judges could be as positive.
9:49 — 7-8-7 for Team Val. Do you want to see an encore of their Paso Doble? Tweet #encorePaso!
9:53 — So much fake facial hair. Oy.
9:55 — The girls are really carrying this Samba. They killed it.
9:56 — Looks like Bruno agrees with us.
9:57 — "Derek's never been on a losing team." Of course he hasn't!
9:58 — 8-9-8 for Team PicklerDick! We have to admit: we're so happy for Andy!
