With the elimination of Gavin DeGraw, only 8 celebrities remain on Dancing with the Stars season 14. And those 8 will have to work hard if they want to last past week 6 -- in addition to another Dance Duel, each couple will face their first week of two performances. What else can we expect? Keep reading to find out!

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


Motown Week
As was mentioned several times in connection with Gladys Knight last week, Dancing with the Stars week 6 has a Motown theme. Will we see some Motown stars in the ballroom as a result? It's been hinted that they'll be there, but who exactly? The only announced performers for week 6 -- Boyz II Men -- are not exactly Motown stars. We will have to wait and see who else shows up.

In addition to performances of the Motown variety, the remaining Dancing with the Stars season 14 competitors will have to take part in a Motown Marathon. If this marathon follows the pattern set by those of previous seasons, the performers will all dance at the same time and points awarded based on when the judges eliminate each couple.

It's an interesting change anyway.

What Dances Will We See This Week?
In addition to the Motown Marathon, each of the pairs has to perform a new style in Dancing with the Stars week 6. What can we expect to see?

  • Melissa and Maks: Viennese Waltz
  • Gladys and Tristan: Rumba
  • Jaleel and Kym: Quickstep
  • Donald and Peta: Foxtrot
  • Roshon and Chelsie: Rumba
  • Maria and Derek: Foxtrot
  • William and Cheryl: Rumba
  • Katherine and Mark: Samba
