When Cher comes to Dancing with the Stars Monday, November 4 as a performer and guest judge, she won't be the only addition to the show. The reality competition is bringing back a twist, giving immunity to one couple.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.


According to ABC's official press release, the seven remaining couples will all perform a new dance style, and whoever gets the highest score from the judges will receive immunity, meaning they cannot be eliminated no matter what. Let's just call this the Christina Milian Rule, since she went home when she was atop the leaderboard. It's unclear what will happen in the event of a tie (which has happened in three of the seven weeks this season), but I'm sure the judges will be careful not to let that happen.

The remaining six couples will then compete in head-to-head dance-offs, with the winning couple in each battle receiving extra points from the judges. I'm sure everyone is hoping and praying to compete against Bill Engvall. After the dance-offs, one of those six couples will be eliminated.

The press release also names the seven dance styles that will be performed: Argentine Tango, Tango, Contemporary, Foxtrot, Viennese Waltz, Jazz and Disco. Yup, get ready for a Disco routine, which will mark only the second time the show has ever done one (Sabrina Bryan and Louis van Amstel did the first Disco routine in season 15).

It's still too early to know who will do what, but Karina said in an interview with AfterBuzz TV that she and Corbin are doing the Argentine Tango, and Emma revealed that she and Bill have Disco, though it might change. Elizabeth and Val have said they're taking on Jazz. Also, since Brant is the only star left who hasn't done the Foxtrot, he'll be getting foxy for a second week in a row. As for the others, Amber and Jack are the only ones who haven't done Contemporary, meaning one of them will get it.

In addition to all of the dances, guest judge Cher will perform twice, opening the show with her classic hit "Believe" and ending with her new single, "I Hope You Find It."

Check out Dancing with the Stars, Monday at 8pm on ABC.
