Dancing with the Stars season 20 is underway. The first week introduced the 12 new couples and featured some tough scoring from the judges. The second week brings the first elimination and the first weekly theme: My Jam Monday.
The couples will dance to the stars’ favorite songs. Viewers will see more Jives, Foxtrots and Cha-Cha-Chas as well as Salsa, Samba, Rumba and an Argentine Tango.
Here’s a look at the styles and songs the couples will perform in week 2 of DWTS season 20.
-Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy: “Rumour Has It” by Adele
-Chris Soules and Witney Carson: “Time of Our Lives” by Pitbull
-Charlotte McKinney and Keo Motsepe: “California Gurls” by Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg
-Riker Lynch and Allison Holker: “Sugar” by Maroon 5
-Michael Sam and Peta Murgatroyd: “Workin’ My Way Back To You” by The Spinners
-Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson: “You Make Me Feel So Young” by Michael Buble
-Redfoo and Emma Slater: “My Sharona” by The Knack
-Suzanne Somers and Tony Dovolani: “Whole Lotta Shakin’ Going On” by Jerry Lee Lewis
-Willow Shields and Mark Ballas: “Somebody That I Used to Know” by Gotye
-Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough: “Thinking Out Loud” by Ed Sheeran
-Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess: “Homegrown Honey” by Darius Rucker
-Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev: “In Da Club” by 50 Cent
The award for best song has to go to Rumer Willis for picking one that has her name in it. The most unexpected choice is Patti LaBelle? Is the 70-year-old soul singer really going to da club and drinking Bacardi like it’s her birthday?
The most intriguing choice is Robert Herjavec. “You Make Me Feel So Young” seems very poignant given TMZ’s recent reports that the newly-separated businessman is now dating his partner, Kym Johnson, a woman 14 years younger than he is.
As for the styles, week 2 will let us see a different side to many of the contestants. Rumer was great in an intense and elegant Foxtrot, but can she let loose in a Cha-Cha-Cha? Riker Lynch and Michael Sam had a lot of fun last week, but can they get serious and show better technique with the Foxtrot?
See all of these performances and the first elimination of Dancing with the Stars season 20 Monday, March 23 at 8pm on ABC.
