The Dancing with the Stars season 22 semifinals are here, and with it comes the Trio Challenge. The five remaining couples will all perform twice, with their second dances being part of the Trio Challenge where they’re each joined by another pro or troupe member.

Many of the trio partners are no big surprise. Paige and Mark are dancing with Alan Bertsen, who filled in for Mark when he was injured earlier this season. Ginger and Val are going with Artem and Wanya and Lindsay get her BFF, Witney Carson.

We’ll also see a trio of Argentine Tangos, which should benefit Nyle since he just had that style in his Judges’ Team-Up Challenge from Bruno Tonioli. There are going to be two Paso Dobles, another Contemporary routine and the season’s first Charleston.
