“Dancing with the Stars” will have a special two-night event on Monday, September 25, and Tuesday, September 26. There will be one elimination on each night, so the 13 celebs will quickly be reduced to 11, but in addition to worrying about the immediate elimination of 15% of the cast, the contestants will have to learn and perform two routines instead of one — the first for “Ballroom Night,” and the second for “Latin Night.” So what ballroom routines will the celebrities perform? Scroll down for the complete list.
This week of training must be grueling for the celebs. After spending a couple of weeks preparing for one dance in the season premiere episode, they now have a mere seven days to learn twice as much choreography. So this could be an important proving ground that separates the contenders from the pretenders because as the competition advances each celeb will be asked to do more and more. Celebs who can handle the pressure in week two may stand a good chance of going all the way to the finals.
Monday night’s elimination will be based on the judges’ scores and viewer votes from the season premiere episode, And Tuesday night’s elimination will be based on the scores and votes from the night before. So at least after “Latin Night” on Tuesday the 11 celebs left standing will have a whole six days to fret about their next performances and who will be sent home.
Check out the complete list of “Ballroom Night” routines below. Do you think you know who will fare the best with these routines?
