Get ready to be extra patriotic for Veterans Day ... and then be extra depressed because there’s a double elimination on Dancing With the Stars All-Stars.
Dancing With the Stars will pay tribute to veterans on Monday (November 11) during the Week 8: Performance Show, which will also feature the return of the Trio Dances. Then, on Tuesday’s Results Show, we’ll be treated to several music and dance performances before bidding two of the top seven couples adieu.
Read on for more details about Week 8.
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 12
BALLROOM ROUND: There are two rounds of competition for the seven remaining couples, a Ballroom and Latin Trio round. In honor of Veterans Day, the first round will feature performances to songs that pay homage to servicemen and women. The audience will also be joined by members of several branches of the armed forces, including two former Marines, William Franco Vasquez and Nick Jones Jr., who will be special guests on an episode of The Middle on November 14.
TRIO ROUND: During the Latin Trio round, each couple will be joined by an eliminated pro or troupe dancer. Check out which pros and troupe members are dancing here.
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 13
KYLIE MINOGUE: Pop icon Kylie Minogue will perform “Locomotion” alongside the DWTS band, accompanied by pro dancers Kym Johnson and Tristan MacManus.
NE-YO: Also taking the stage is three-time Grammy Award-winning artist Ne-Yo, who will perform his single, “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself),” from his newest album, R.E.D, an acronym for Realizing Every Dream.
BALLET DANCERS: Before two couples are eliminated from the show, there will also be a special performance from pro dancers Anna Trebunskaya and Valentin Chmerkovskiy, alongside special guests Tiler Peck and Robert Fairchild, principal dancers with the New York Ballet.
NEWSIES: The 4th “Macy’s Stars of Dance” performance of the season comes from the cast of Disney’s new Broadway musical, Newsies. Eighteen performers will be joining the ballroom on Tuesday night, performing “Seize the Day.”
DOUBLE ELIMINATION: The scores from Week 7 will carry over into Monday’s show. We’ll have one more chance to vote and then, on Tuesday night, we’ll have another double dump. Never fun.
Catch a new episode of Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars on Monday, November 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
