It’s American Icons Week, featuring songs by pop music icons from Elvis Presley to Beyoncé. There will also be a big Macy’s Stars of Dance routine, and Derek Hough told AfterBuzz it will feature 28 different dancers. ABC added that the unique performance, choreographed by Derek and Christopher Scott of So You Think You Can Dance, will be a tribute to classic Hollywood, featuring Derek and Disney Channel’s Jessica Lee Keller from Teen Beach as the leads. The piece’s 26 additional dancers will include a variety of DWTS pros.
This week’s guest judge is producer, director, and choreographer Kenny Ortega (Michael Jackson’s This Is It,High School Musical), who has guest judged So You Think You Can Dance a few times and who is directing the upcoming Dirty Dancing movie, which a couple of our pros expressed interest in, way back when.
