The Couple With the Highest Judges’ Score From Their First Dance Wins Immunity From Both Elimination and the Evening’s Dance-Off.
The Remaining Six Couples Will Have a Dance-Off to Gain Additional Judges’ Points.
Show Choreographer Mandy Moore Is a Guest Judge.
Stars From the Disney Channel Original Movie ‘Descendants 2’ Will Perform a ‘Descendants’-Themed Medley.
There Will Be a Double Elimination at the End of the Night.
“Episode 2407” – The seven remaining couples are presented with an all-new challenge, as they dance to celebrate “A Night at the Movies.” One couple will receive immunity; the remaining couples will compete in a Dance-Off; and a double elimination will take place at the end of the night, on “Dancing with the Stars,” live, MONDAY, MAY 1 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network.
The night will kick off with an exciting opening number, choreographed by four-time Emmy nominee Mandy Moore (“La La Land”), featuring all seven couples and the troupe dancing to “Let’s Go to the Movies.” Moore will also join Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba as a guest judge.
Each couple will attempt to capture the spirit of a specific movie genre – western, romance, silent films, action, horror, sci-fi and foreign. The couple with the highest judges’ scores will receive immunity and be safe from the evening’s elimination, and they will not have to compete in a Dance-Off, which the remaining six couples will have to dance in for additional judges’ points in an attempt to help lift their scores. At the end of the night, based on the evening’s judges’ scores and votes from last Monday, two couples will say their goodbyes to the ballroom in a double elimination.
As an added bonus, Dove Cameron, Cameron Boyce, Sofia Carson and Booboo Stewart perform a “Descendants”-themed medley featuring “Rotten to the Core,” from the original Disney Channel movie, and the latest high-energy pop-rock anthem, “Ways to Be Wicked,” from the upcoming sequel, “Descendants 2.” “Descendants 2” premieres July 21st on Disney Channel, ABC, Lifetime, Disney XD and Freeform.
Each celebrity will perform a Charleston, paso doblé, tango, Argentine tango or salsa.
