Dancing With the Stars Season 17, Week 6: What to Expect — Switch-Ups, Ariana Grande, and More!
The time has come: On Dancing With the StarsSeason 17Week 6, the stars will have to double the fun with a second dance. Now's when we'll really get to see who has the goods to make it to the end.
So, what will the main dances be, what's this "Switch-Up Challenge" you've been hearing about, and what else can you expect from the ballroom tonight? We've gathered all of the biggest intel about Week 6 right here.
Time for a big musical number. Since DWTS no longer has an extra hour to fill on Tuesdays, there haven't been many big-name stars dropping by to sing songs and promote albums. That changes this week. Fewer dancers means more time to fill, which means it's time for an awesome musical guest. Rising pop princess Ariana Grande will join forces with Mika to perform their duet, "Popular."
The "Switch-Up Challenge." So, what is the switch-up challenge? According to ABC, it's a "fresh take on a dance marathon." Basically, "couples will compete side by side, in two rounds, with no prior knowledge of dance style or musical accompaniment. One by one, the judges will select couples to be tapped-off/removed from the dance floor. Extra judges' points will be awarded to couples based on longevity."
So, basically, the dance marathon with more rules and no prior knowledge of the style. Should be interesting.
Who's dancing what? Despite the extra challenge, this week there's only one main dance. Here's what each celeb will take on:
