It’s that time again, Dancing With the Stars fans, and tonight is going to be one for the record books. We love every week of the hit dance competition show, but the spicy Season 16, Week 7 performances are particularly special. Not only is it Latin Night (ay caramba!), but there is also immunity up for grabs with a new DWTS twist.
That’s right, y’all — this week, the pairs have prepared three routines, but may only use one of them. According to new pro Sharna Burgess, “One couple will be immune from doing it, the highest-placed couple. The rest of us will have to basically battle it out with either a Samba, a Rumba or a Jive.”
Eek! Sounds intense, especially considering how Team Kellie Pickler and Team Zendaya have been battling for the top spot on the Leaderboard since the competition began!
The immunity challenge aside, we have seven incredible dances ahead of us, including a possible new dancer hitting the ballroom floor. Troupe member Henry Byalikov may step in for Mark Ballas after the pro’s back injury, which is a risky move for Team Aly Raisman. We have a feeling they’ll pull through, though.
We’ll be back with videos of all of the performances later tonight, but until then, feel free to occupy yourself with a preview of everyone’s dance styles and this GIF of Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff busting a move:
