It's time for the Dancing With the Stars Season 16 contestants to graduate to the big league: Two full individual dances an episode! The Week 8 performances are definitely not to be missed.  

If two dances in one night isn't enough, this week is also trio week, which means one of the two dances will feature the pros dancing with not one but two pros. That always makes for some fun choreography and impressive dances. Plus, it means we get to see some of our favorite pros again, even if their stars have been kicked off. That's always nice.

On top of that, this week will feature a wide range of styles, including the return of Jazz for Sean Lowe. We love variety, and it looks like Week 8 will deliver.

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 Derek and Kellie busting an awesome move.
