Dancing With the Stars Recap 10/28/13: Season 17 Episode 7 “Who Was Voted Off?”

Tonight on ABC Dancing With The Stars returns with all the glitz, glitter and drama.  On tonight’s episode the competition heats up as the remaining couples learn two new routines.  Did you watch last week’s episode when the celebs danced to to a new routine faced a new challenge?  We did and we recapped it right here for you.  If you missed any of the performances from last week, we have all the videos HERE for you to watch!

On last week’s show the eight remaining couples hit the dance floor and faced an exciting new challenge. Each couple had to compete in an individual dance style they have not yet done as well as take part in the first ever “Switch-Up Challenge.” In this fresh take on a dance marathon, couples competed side by side, in two rounds, with no prior knowledge of dance style or musical accompaniment.  By the end of the night, one couple was suppose to face elimination.  BUT, we learned at the end of the show that due to a technical glitch no one would be eliminated.

On tonight’s show the night will begin with a spectacular opening number choreographed by Emmy Nominated choreographer, Mandy Moore. The competition will then be split into two rounds. In the first round, each couple will take on a dance style they have not previously performed including the Salsa, Quickstep, Samba, Cha Cha, Paso Doble, and Jive. In the second round, the cast will dance together in two separate teams, with each couple having a featured solo. At the end of the night, one couple will face elimination.

Stay tuned to Celeb Dirty Laundry for a full live recap of tonight’s episode. We will keep you up to date on all DWTS news, reviews and spoilers and make sure to check back here regularly for more information on your favorite television shows!
