From ABC's official press release:
Ninth couple eliminated on Dancing with the Stars the Results Show, Tuesday, May 5 on ABC.
Jamie Cullum performs.
Macy's Stars of Dance brings choreographers Marty Kudelka and Dee Caspary to the stage.
DanceCenter returns with Kenny Mane and Jerry Rice.
Professional Dancer Competition continues with the return of three former Dancing with the Stars celebrity competitors.
After tallying the judges' and viewer votes, the ninth couple to be eliminated from the competition is revealed on Dancing with the Stars the Results Show, Tuesday, May 5 (9:00-10:02 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Jamie Cullum performs the Cole Porter classic "I Get a Kick Out of You," joined on the Dancing with the Stars stage by International Grand Ball Champions Agnieszka Kazmierczak and Urs Gaisenhainer. Cullum is a worldwide star noted for his raw energy, insatiable musical creativity and fearlessly engaging live performances. He's been called a "one man British invasion" and, with sales of over 5 million albums worldwide, has been hailed as the UK's most successful jazz artist. Most recently Cullum was nominated along with Clint Eastwood for a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song for their composition, "Gran Torino," to go along with Cullum's previous Grammy and Golden Globe nominations.
Macy's Stars of Dance brings a special collaboration between hip hop choreographer Marty Kudelka and contemporary choreographer Dee Caspary to the Dancing with the Stars stage in a fusion of styles that transform the dance floor with one of the largest set pieces ever brought to the stage - in the shape of a star.
Former Dancing with the Stars celebrities Kenny Mane and Jerry Rice return to the ballroom with head judge Len Goodman for another critical analysis of the remaining competitors in a special edition of DanceCenter.
The first Dancing with the Stars professional dancer competition continues with three dancers remaining. After one more of the six professional dancers is eliminated based on last week's viewer votes, the three remaining dancers are paired with former Dancing with the Stars celebrity competitors from previous seasons. By the end of this season, one lucky dancer, determined by viewers' votes, will be selected as a member of next season's Dancing with the Stars cast to be paired with a celebrity.
By evening's end one couple will be eliminated. Who among the following five teams will leave the ballroom floor?
Shawn Johnson (Olympic gymnastics medalist) and partner Mark Ballas
Lil' Kim (Grammy Award-winning rapper) and partner, reigning champion Derek Hough
Gilles Marini (model and actor) and partner Cheryl Burke
Ty Murray ("King of Cowboys") and partner, newcomer Chelsie Hightower
