On tonight’s episode as per the ABC synopsis, “each couple will dance to a song of the celebrity’s choosing that encompasses a memorable time or truly incredible experience in their life. These heartfelt performances promise to showcase some of the most exciting choreography and emotionally robust routines of the season yet. Viewers can expect to see Wanye Morris dancing to the powerful memory of singing the national anthem at the Olympics with Boyz II Men.
