We just called to say we love the idea of a Stevie Wonder theme for Dancing With the Stars Season 16 Week 6. It’s not a theme that restricts the remaining eight couples in any way, since it’s just a celebration of music. Here’s the plan for the Monday, April 22 Performance Show and the Tuesday, April 23 Results Show.
Stevie Wonder will take over the ballroom as Dancing with the Stars devotes, for the first time, an entire evening to one artist. He will perform some of his classic songs, including “Sir Duke” and “My Cherie Amour,” and the celebrities will dance to his greatest hits, including “I Just Called to Say I Love You,” “For Once in My Life” and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours).” Special guest country superstar Hunter Hayes will perform with Stevie Wonder in an opening performance. The night will also showcase two team dances featuring the celebrities and their pro partners. Here’s who will be dancing what, including the team breakdowns. Should be fun!
The Week 6 Results Show will feature will.i.am performing his current single, “#thatpower,” and British singer Olly Murs will perform his current hit, “Troublemaker.”
Seven-time Grammy Award winner will.i.am is probably still best known from The Black Eyed Peas, who have sold 33 million albums and 58 million singles worldwide. His upcoming solo release, #willpower, will showcase more than a dozen A-list guest artists, including Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Miley Cyrus, and DWTS Season 10 winner Nicole Scherzinger. Olly Murs is an international star whose rise to fame began after he auditioned in 2009 for Britain’s top singing competition show, The X Factor. He toured with fellow Brits One Direction this past summer, so get ready to hear a lot of screams from the teenage audience.
In addition to those performances, “Macy’s Stars of Dance” returns for its third installment of the season, choreographed by AJ Jones. And then someone will have to go home. Which celeb will be signed, sealed and delivered out the door?
