Monday night is “Latin Night” on “Dancing with the Stars.” Season 23 of the reality competition dance series is down to nine contestants, and the pressure is on: last week was a non-elimination round, but those scores will be combined with viewer votes to determine who goes home next. So what Latin dances will the contestants hope to impress judges with? See the list below in alphabetical order.
Marilu Henner & Derek Hough – Cha Cha – “Echa Pa’lante” by Thalia
Laurie Hernandez & Val Chmerkovskiy – Salsa – “Light It Up” by Major Lazer featuring Nyla & Fuse ODG
James Hinchcliffe & Sharna Burgess – Rumba – “Need the Sun to Break” by James Bay
Calvin Johnson & Lindsay Arnold – Argentine Tango – “Hotel California” by Eagles
Terra Jole & Sasha Farber – Paso Doblé – “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” by Santa Esmeralda
Jana Kramer & Gleb Savchenko – Argentine Tango – “Hands to Myself” by Selena Gomez

Those performances will be scored by the regular panel of “Dancing with the Stars” judges — Carrie Ann Inaba, Julianne Hough and Bruno Tonioli — along with special guest judge Pitbull. The Miami musician will open the night with a performance of his song “Greenlight” with Flo Rida and LunchMoney Lewis before he takes a seat to evaluate the competition.
