Julianne Hough is comin' home again.
The two-time Dancing With the Stars winner will promote her new film, Rock of Ages, on the Tuesday, May 15, DWTS Season 14, Week 9 Semifinals Results Show — just like she plugged Footloose last year. If that’s the only way we can get her back in the ballroom, so be it.
Tuesday will officially be ladies’ night, since superstars Alanis Morissette and Carrie Underwood will also be in the house. We’ll also see the Design-a-Dance where two as-yet-unnamed pros will perform a Samba to “End of Time.” (Which pros did you vote for? We're pulling for an Irish guy and an Aussie girl, but we'll be happy no matter what; it's just always good to see the pros dancing together.)
Here’s what else ABC says we can look forward to this week:
FYI, Monday’s Semifinals Performance Show is only an hour and a half, ending at 9:30, just in time for the start of The Bachelorette Season 8. The four remaining couples will perform one new ballroom and one new Latin dance to determine the final three. Here’s who is dancing what.
Carrie Underwood: The American Idol country superstar is set to perform “Good Girl,” the first single off her brand new album, “Blown Away.” Her performance will be accompanied by pros Tristan MacManus (yay!), Sharna Burgess, Henry Byalikov and Emma Slater.
Alanis Morissette: The multi-platinum Grammy Award-winner will hit the stage with a world premiere performance of her new single, “Guardian,” from her upcoming album, “Havoc and Bright Lights.” Her performance will be accompanied by Blake McGrath and Tyne Stecklein, who are not part of the DWTS pro troupe but have great names anyway.
Rock of Ages: The Results Show will also feature a performance from the upcoming Warner Bros Pictures feature release, Rock of Ages. The performance will feature two-time former DWTS champion Julianne Hough and her co-star, actor/singer Diego Boneta. Directed by Adam Shankman (“Hairspray”), New Line Cinema’s adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Rock of Ages hit theaters June 15th. The movie musical stars Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Malin Akerman, Mary J. Blige, Bryan Cranston, with Alec Baldwin and Tom Cruise.
Design-a-Dance: In the final “Macy’s Stars of Dance” performance this season, two yet to be named DWTS pros will perform a riveting Samba to “End of Time.” All season long, fans have voted on the performance song, style, costumes and pro dancers for the season’s Macy’s Design-a-Dance.
And then one couple is going to have to feel the harshest cut of all. Who will be eliminated before the Finale?
