Of the 12 celebrities who began Dancing with the Stars week 4, only 7 dancers remain. And not one of them is a bad dancer. What will this mean as we go into Classical Week? Keep reading for a preview.

Yet Another Change in the Formatting
Dancing with the Stars does love its formatting changes as the weeks progress. I guess that's a good way to keep us interested. The big change in Dancing with the Stars week 7 is the addition of two team dances. The scores from these team performances will be added to the individual scores for the week.

What are the teams?

Team Paso Doble
  • Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd
  • Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  • William Levy and Cheryl Burke

Team Tango
  • Maria Menounos and Derek Hough
  • Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas
  • Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower
  • Jaleel White and Kym Johnson

We will also get the last (if they don't change their minds) Dance Duel in week 7. Who will fall to the bottom of Classical Week?

What Dances Will We See?
Safe to say there will be no jives danced to classical music. That would be weird. What do we get instead?

  • Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Argentine Tango
  • Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower: Argentine Tango
  • Jaleel White and Kym Johnson: Viennese Waltz
  • Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd: Viennese Waltz
  • Maria Menounos and Derek Hough: Paso Doble
  • William Levy and Cheryl Burke: Viennese Waltz
  • Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas: Rumba

What Are the Standings?
While the overall point totals between most of the remaining competitors are close, we do have a definite leader now. We also have a couple that is trailing by quite a lot.

1. Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas: 163 total points
2. William Levy and Cheryl Burke: 155 total points
3. (tie) Maria Menounos and Derek Hough: 152 total points
3. (tie) Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd: 152 total points
5. Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower: 149 total points
6. Jaleel White and Kym Johnson: 148 total points
