DANCING WITH THE STARS is back tonight with the seventh episode of the 16 season and tonight on DWTS the couples will compete for immunity during Latin Night. Did you see last week’s “Stevie Wonder” performance show? We did and we recapped it for you HERE!
On last week’s show the eight remaining couples hit the dance floor and payed tribute to singer, songwriter and legend Stevie Wonder. Stevie Wonder took over the ballroom as “Dancing with the Stars” devoted, for the first time, an entire evening to one artist. He performed some of his classic songs, including “Sir Duke” and “My Cherie Amour,” and the celebrities will dance to his greatest hits, including “I Just Called to Say I Love You,” “For Once in My Life” and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours).” We saw some great performances and some not so great performances. On the result show Victor Ortiz & his professional dancer Lindsay Arnold were sent home.
On this week’s show the seven remaining couples hit the dance floor for Latin Night. The couples will perform to a Latin-inspired hit. In a new twist (again seems there is a new one each week) and another DWTS first, the couple with the highest overall score for the night will be granted immunity from elimination on Tuesday. The couples who do not receive immunity will then compete in a dance-off to earn extra judges’ points in an effort to increase their overall score.
The dance assignments for the week are: Kellie and Derek – Samba, Andy and Sharna – Rumba, Jacoby and Karina – Salsa, Ingo and Kym – Rumba, Aly and Mark – Salsa, Sean and Peta – Rumba and Zendaya and Val – Paso Doble.
On Tuesdays Results show another couple will be eliminated by the end of the evening. The show will feature music by Michael Bublé who will perform “Come Dance with Me” off his new album, “To Be Loved.”
Tonight’s episode is going to have all the usual glitz and glam in the ballroom, which you won’t want to miss.
