"Latin Week" sounds like the kind of dry, concentrated language course you never want to suffer through in college — but thankfully the Dancing With the Stars version is much sexier and should be as en fuego as Team Fuego. ABC has announced special performances for both the Performance Show and the Results Show and they sound pretty darn exciting.
Carlos Santana: On Monday’s Season 14, Week 5 Performance Show, the DWTS pro troupe will get their groove on as Carlos Santana performs "Evil Ways." Carlos will also perform his hit song "Maria, Maria," featuring dancers Louis van Amstel (welcome back, man!) and Anna Trebunskaya. And the remaining nine competing couples will heat up the dance floor with either the Salsa, Argentine Tango or the Samba.
Train: On Tuesday night's Results Show, Train will perform "Drive By," accompanied by Louis Van Amstel and Cheryl Burke.
Selena: Selena Gomez and her band, The Scene, will perform their hit single "Hit the Lights" — and you can count on someone hitting a spotlight if her boyfriend Justin Bieber shows up in the audience. (If they can single out Jennifer Love Hewitt, they can single out the Biebs.)
Carnaval: The Latin-themed performances will continue with a "Macy’s Stars of Dance" performance called "Carnaval," a celebration of Latin dances featuring percussionist Sheila E. The performance will be choreographed by Liz Imperio, who has directed Gloria Estefan’s last three world concert tours and choreographed for Madonna and Jennifer Lopez.
Dance Duel: Also, this week's bottom two couples will face off in the new Dance Duel. The two couples will perform the same dance style — this week the Cha-Cha — to the same song at the same time. The dance floor will be split in half as the couples dance side by side and the judges will decide who stays and who goes home.
Should be interesting!
