Dancing with the Stars' seven remaining couples will pay tribute to movie genres during the upcoming show, and fans can expect a wide variety of costumes and themes.
On Monday night, May 1 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC, the couples will dance a Charleston, paso doble, tango, Argentine tango, or salsa to songs that represent a particular movie genre -- including horror, action and romance -- in "A Night At the Movies."
Week 7 of the competition will kick off with an exciting opening number choreographed by four-time Emmy nominee Mandy Moore, who worked on the set of La La Land.
The super-sized routine will feature all seven couples and the DWTS Troupe performing to "Let's Go to the Movies."
The couple who earns the highest score from the judges in the first movie-genres round will win immunity from the subsequent Dance-Off as well as the double elimination, which will take place at the end of the night.
Six couples will therefore square off in the Dance-Off in attempt to receive additional judges' points.
Olympic gold medal-winning gymnast Simone Biles will perform the Charleston with her professional partner Sasha Farber inspired by silent films. They'll be dancing to the song "Charleston" by Bob Wilson and His Varsity Rhythm Boys.
Professional bull rider-turned-model Bonner Bolton will dance the paso doble with partner Sharna Burgess inspired by western films. They'll be dancing to the song "Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes" by Aaron Copland.
NFL free agent Rashad Jennings and partner Emma Slater will dance to "O Fortuna" by Carl Orff to represent the horror movie genre.
