Now that we've gotten the first Dancing with the Stars season 14 elimination out of the way (bye Martina!), it's time to move on to the theme weeks. The first of those themes -- personal stories -- is hitting in week 3. What sort of dances will we see? Which stars will continue to shine? We preview it all right here.

Who Is Dancing What?
Week 3 brings us our first more-than-two-dance-styles night of Dancing with the Stars season 14. While there will be plenty of Latin dancing on display, a few other styles will sneak in as well.

  • Melissa and Maks -- Jive
  • Gavin and Karina -- Rumba
  • Gladys and Tristan -- Foxtrot
  • Jack and Anna -- Samba
  • Donald and Peta -- Rumba
  • Sherri and Val -- Rumba
  • Maria and Derek -- Rumba
  • Jaleel and Kym -- Rumba
  • Roshon and Chelsie -- Samba
  • William and Cheryl -- Salsa
  • Katherine and Mark -- Waltz

Whatever the dance, each of the competitors needs to find a way to bring in his or her personal story. This means a lot of choreographed heartbreak tonight...

Where They Stand
After two weeks of dancing, we are beginning to see who can dance and who can kind-of dance -- they can all dance at least a little. Here are the rankings going into Dancing with the Stars week 3:

1. Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas -- 52 points
2. William Levy and Cheryl Burke -- 49 points
2. Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower -- 49 points

9. Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus -- 42 points
10. Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff -- 41 points
11. Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy -- 40 points

And Now, Some Burning Questions Answered
It's not all about performance on Dancing with the Stars. It's also about the people. That's why we have videos. In this week's installment of "You Tweeted, They Answered," Jack Wagner shares his answers to a series of Twitter questions.

  • Which dance he is most looking forward to?
  • Would he consider going back to General Hospital?
  • Which dance has been the most challenging so far?



  • He is way too excited about the next dance.
  • He's too excited about General Hospital too.
  • I'm frankly terrified about his excitement about the hardest dance.

The Dancing with the Stars week 3 performance show will air on ABC at 8pm on Monday, April 2.
