Last week, all of the couples were safe from elimination after a voting error the previous week, so can we expect a double elimination at the end of tonight's episode of Dancing With the Stars 2013? Not so fast, DWTS fans!
There is one shocking twist happening at the top of the hour, but a double elimination is not it. Could a guest judge be headed to the ballroom? We hope so! But we'll have to wait until Tom Bergeron gives us the news. As if the couples didn't have enough to worry about, it's time for them to tackle two dances this week — and the dreaded (but oh-so-fun!) Team Challenge!
Will Derek Hough redeem himself in front of Len Goodman? Will Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi continue her hot streak on the dance floor? What can Bill Engvall possibly do next to make us love him even more?! We'll just have to wait and see.
As for their regularly scheduled performances, here's the list of who's dancing what, based on what we know so far:
Amber Riley and Derek Hough: Paso Doble
Bill Engvall and Emma Slater: Quickstep
Brant Daugherty and Peta Murgatroyd: Jive
Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff: Cha-Cha-Cha
Elizabeth Berkley and Val Chmerkovskiy: Quickstep
Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke: Jive
Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani: Salsa
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Sasha Farber: Samba
OK Dancing With the Stars fans, now that you know what to expect, join in on the fun below asWetpaint Entertainment gets ready to live recap Week 6! And since we know you have a lot of feelings (we do too!), tell us what you think of the episode in the comments.
We’ll try our best to answer all of your questions, comments and concerns. Keep refreshing for more!
8:01 — Tristan MacManus left far too early in this competition.
8:02 — Emma Slater is so perfect. She might just be my Season 17 favorite.
8:05 — Cher is really making the rounds, huh? First The Voice, now guest judging on DWTS? Get it, Cher.
8:08 — I'm not really sure I get the theme for this Quickstep? Remember when Val hated gimmicks?
8:11 — 9-9-9 for Val and Elizabeth's Quickstep.
8:17 — It's OK, Brant. You're still adorable.
8:18 — I really hope Noel Kahn does the Jive at Rosewood High's prom this season.
8:18 — Brant seems a little hesitant...
8:20 — Bruno just called Brant a "frisky schoolboy" — the night has finally started, ladies and gentlemen!
8:21 — Carrie thinks the routine was too challenging for Brant.
8:22 — 9-9-9 for Brant and Peta!
8:22 — "After I slipped on the skirt, I thought the whole thing was over... it's a metaphor for my life, really."

8:30 — This Salsa is definitely Leah Remini's best all season.
8:31 — 9-8-9 for Leah and Tony!
8:38 — Jack is feeling the pressure. Also of note: who knew Cheryl had so many freckles?!
8:40 — Jack's Jive was actually really great. He kept up with Cheryl, and let's face it, that's the hardest part!
8:42 — Carrie Ann tells Jack that between his Jive and Brant's Jive, she'd prefer to see his. "It was more natural."
8:43 — 10-8-9 for Jack and Cheryl!
8:48 — Are they really dancing to "What Does The Fox Say?" I can't even.
8:49 — Amber is struggling through her Paso Doble practice.
8:50 — Love the authentic music!
8:52 — I want what Carrie Ann is having. "You slayed the beast again!"
8:54 — 10-10-9 for Amber and Derek!
9:01 — Bill just has so much fun on the dance floor. You can't possibly find anything wrong with his charisma.
9:03 — Carrie Ann says his hold wasn't so strong, but he "didn't miss a single step." Bruno and Len disagree.
9:04 — 8-7-8 for Bill and Emma!
9:10 — This is definitely not Snooki's best dance, but her hair looks fabulous!
9:14 — Snooks is so disappointed.
9:15 — 9-9-9 for Snooki and Sasha! (Did anyone else think they gave her 9s to make her feel better?)
9:16 — Team Foxing Awesome... really?
9:20 — Karina Smirnoff is choreographing this one until the last minute...
9:24 — That Cha-Cha was actually perfect. So fun! So cheery! So on point!
9:24 — Carrie Ann is out of control tonight.
9:25 — 10-9-10 for Corbin and Karina! Len wasn't a fan of the gyrating. Ugh.
9:32 — Foxing Awesome vs. Spooky Bom Bom... um, OK.
9:34 — Bill is just the best. Elizabeth is still kind of the worst.
9:38 — This Walking Dead routine is so fun! Snooki is literally doing backflips.
9:39 — "Bill, you were the glue who held that routine together!" #TeamBill
9:42 — 9-9-9 for Spooky Bom Bom!
9:45 — Peta and Karina are going crazy.
9:46 — I'm so tired of this song.
9:47 — This is... a lot of things. I don't think it's that that good... ?
9:48 — The fox said.. no. Just no.
9:49 — Corbin was the only one who saved this dance.
9:50 — "I feel like I was just on an acid trip."
9:51 — 10-10-10 for Team Foxing Awesome... I object.
9:55 — It looks like someone from Team Spooky Bom Bom is going home. [sad face]
9:56 — Elizabeth and Val are safe! So are Leah and Tony!
9:57 — So will it be Bill or Snooki?
9:58 — Snooki and Sasha are the couple going home... Poor little meatball.
9:59 — And Bill is crying. Once again, he's just the best.
