Get a Sneak Peek Preview Performance of All-New Tour, ‘Dancing with the Stars: Live! – Hot Summer Nights,’ Featuring the Show’s Fantastic Pros and Troupe

One Couple Will Be Eliminated at the End of the Night

With just a few weeks left in the competition before heading towards the finals, the five remaining couples find themselves tasked with completing two full dances. In the first round dance, the pros will choose the song and dance style, and for the second, the couples will perform in a Trio Round with a new twist, in which the judges have chosen the trio partners.

In addition, there will be a sneak-peek preview performance from the upcoming tour, “Dancing with the Stars: Live! – Hot Summer Nights,” featuring the show’s amazing pro and troupe dancers. The all-new tour will be traveling to over 40 cities nationwide starting June 16.

For the first full dance, the pros chose the song and dance style that they thought best-suited their celebrity partners:
Simone Biles & Sasha Farber – Foxtrot – “What Makes You Beautiful” by One Direction
Bonner Bolton & Sharna Burgess – Argentine Tango – “Believer” by Imagine Dragons
Rashad Jennings & Emma Slater – Jive – “Shake a Tail Feather” by Blues Brothers
Normani Kordei & Valentin Chmerkovskiy – Contemporary – “Freedom” by Anthony Hamilton and Elayna Boynton
David Ross & Lindsay Arnold – Waltz – “Humble and Kind” by Tim McGraw

For the second dance, the judges chose which troupe member would join each couple to perform in a special Trio Round:
Simone Biles & Sasha Farber & Brittany Cherry – Paso Doblé – “Don’t Let Me Down” by The Chainsmokers featuring Daya
Bonner Bolton & Sharna Burgess & Britt Stewart – Jazz – “That’s What I Like” by Bruno Mars
Rashad Jennings & Emma Slater & Witney Carson – Argentine Tango – “Dreams” by Gabrielle Aplin & Bastille
Normani Kordei & Valentin Chmerkovskiy & Alan Bersten – Jive – “Feeling Alive” by Earl St. Clair
David Ross & Lindsay Arnold & Hayley Erbert – Paso Doblé – “Gangsta’s Paradise” by 2WEI

The judges’ scores from both dances will be combined along with viewer votes.

Each celebrity will perform a contemporary, foxtrot, Argentine tango, jive, waltz, paso doblé or jazz. One couple will be eliminated at the end of the night.
