'Dancing with the Stars' spoilers: Five couples perform two full routines, including "Trio Round" with a twist!
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 05/05/2017
Dancing with the Stars has a jam-packed episode in store for viewers when five couples compete on Monday, May 8.
The five remaining couples will each deliver two full dances in the ballroom next Monday night when Dancing with the Stars airs from 8-10PM ET/PT on ABC.
For the first round, each professional partner in the five couples will pick the song and dance style that best suits his or her celebrity partner.
And in the second round of competition, each pair will be joined by aDancing with the Stars Troupe member or previously-eliminated pro. The famous "Trio Round" tends to feature super-sized, exciting routines.
It would therefore be a surprise if someone like Sharna Burgess got to dance with her best friend Peta Murgatroyd, or someone like Lindsay Arnold was given the chance to dance with her bestie Witney Carson. The twist definitely switches things up, as trio partners have been fairly predictable in prior seasons.
In addition to a sneak peek of the show's new 40-city tour starting June 16, "Dancing with the Stars: Live! -- Hot Summer Nights," one couple will be eliminated at the end of the night.
Only a few weeks are left in the Season 24 competition, so all of the remaining couples hope to be dancing their way towards the finals. In the last episode, The Bachelor star Nick Viall and iconic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan were eliminated.
The routines America will see next Monday night are contemporary, foxtrot, Argentine tango, jive, waltz, paso doble and jazz.
Below is the list of dances the couples will perform and the song choices for Round 1:
- Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Simone Biles and partner Sasha Farber: Foxtrot to "What Makes You Beautiful" by One Direction.
