The weekly schedule of Dancing with the Stars is about to change. As season 20 enters the final four weeks, Tuesday results shows are back, a double elimination is on the horizon and a big 10th anniversary special with plenty of former contestants and pros will air.
To help you plan accordingly, here’s the schedule for the remainder of Dancing with the Stars season 20:
Eras Night (Monday, April 27)
The Top 7 will dance to styles inspired by different eras (for instance, Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson will do an ’80s Argentine Tango). In addition, the highest scoring couple will get immunity for the week, which is incredibly important since there will be a double elimination. Also on Monday’s performance show, the six couples without immunity will take part in a trio of head-to-head dance-offs for extra points.
10th Anniversary Special (Tuesday, April 28 at 8pm)
Season 20 marks the 10th anniversary of DWTS, and in this hour-long special, the show will pay tribute to those 10 amazing years of dancing. The line-up is very impressive, and here’s a partial list of who you can expect to see:
-Season 1 winner Kelly Monaco and her All-Stars partner Val Chmerkovskiy
-All-Stars winners Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani
-Season 18 winners Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
-Season 19 winners Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson reprising their “Big Booty” Salsa
-An NFL Players group dance featuring Anna Trebunskaya with Emmitt Smith, Jacobey Jones, Kurt Warner, Donald Driver, Jerry Rice, Michael Irvin and Hines Ward
-A Bromance group dance featuring Derek Hough and Mark Ballas with several of their former partners, including Maria Menounos, Amber Riley, Amy Purdy, Katherine Jenkins, Chelsea Kane and Kristi Yamaguchi
America’s Choice Night (Monday, May 4 and Tuesday, May 5)
The Final 5 will dance to styles and songs chosen by viewers, with one more couple going home on the Tuesday results show.
Semifinals (Monday, May 11 and Tuesday, May 12)
The Top 4 will get one last chance to make it to the finale as one couple will be robbed of the opportunity to perform a Freestyle routine.
Finals (Monday, May 18 and Tuesday, May 19)
For the finale, the Top 3 couples will perform, including their Freestyle routines, in an hour-long show Monday at 8pm. Then Tuesday at 9pm, the two-hour finale will crown the winner of season 20 and give out the Golden Mirror Ball.
That’s a whole lot of dancing for four weeks as Dancing with the Stars nears the end of season 20.
