Dancing with the Stars totally spiced up the ballroom when it returned for its season 18 premiere — and now we’re hooked. We NEED more hot moves and sexy choreography ASAP! Thankfully, we’ve got some spoilers to tide us over until the upcoming episode, which airs this Monday at its normal time. The big question on everyone’s mind at the moment is what can we expect from the dancers moving forward? Well, we’re here to tell you. The end of the Dancing with the Stars season 18 premiere left everyone with a twist: the Week 2 dance styles/assignments were revealed live!
Before production began, the Higher Powers That Be asked each celeb what style they were most looking forward to dancing — or, more specifically, learning to dance. The contestants might’ve been a bit blindsided when they were told that these would be the styles they’re responsible for presenting in Week 2! They haven’t even gotten their dancing feet warmed up yet!
The Week 2 Dance assignments are as follows (also, click each duo’s name for a clip of their season premiere performance): Candace Cameron Bure and Mark Ballas, Rumba; Amy Purdy and Derek Hough, Swing Dance; Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Swing Dance; Danica McKellar and Val Chmerkovskiy, Samba; Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke, Jive
Sean Avery and Karina Smirnoff, Salsa; James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd, Salsa; Diana Nyad and Henry Byalikov, Cha-Cha-Cha; Billy Dee Williams and Emma Slater, Tango; Cody Simpson and Witney Carson, Tango; Charlie White and Sharna Burgess, Tango; NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani, Jive.
