It’s Spring Break time on Dancing with the Stars and the eight remaining couples will each dance twice, including the team round. While celebrating Spring Break is a solid theme, I’m not sure what qualifies as Spring Break music. In fact, a lot of these song choices seem more like summer vacation.
However, I must admit that the songs “Tequila’ and “Bootylicious” do remind me of a 2002 wet t-shirt contest in Fort Lauderdale, so perhaps it will all make sense. Here are the dance tracks, surf songs and other Spring Break tunes the couples will perform to in week 6.
-Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson: “Surfin’ Safari” by the Beach Boys
-Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev: “Heatwave” by Martha and the Vandellas
-Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy: “Bootylicious” by Destiny’s Child
-Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess: “Waves” by Mr. Probz
-Willow Shields and Mark Ballas: “Tequila” by Xavier Cougat
-Riker Lynch and Allison Holker: “Work It” by Missy Elliott
-Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough: “Summer” by Calvin Harris
-Chris Soules and Witney Carson: “Hopelessly Devoted to You” by Olivia Newton-John
-Nastia and Derek, Willow and Mark, Noah and Sharna, Robert and Kym: “Wipeout” by the Surfaris
-Rumer and Val, Riker and Allison, Patti and Artem, Chris and Witney: “Trouble” by Iggy Azalea featuring Jennifer Hudson
The Quickstep and Jive might be problematic for Patti and Robert and I couldn’t care less about Chris and Witney’s cheeseball song. Rumer and Riker score major points with me since “Work It” and “Bootylicious” were two awesome songs from my days in college.
I’m not sure if a song titled “Tequila” is appropriate for a 14-year-old (and I’m scared that Mark will dress up like Pee-wee Herman). Though I’m not sure how a song titled “Summer” qualifies for Spring Break Week, I can already imagine that song going perfectly with a Derek Hough Tango. That might be the one to beat, maybe even getting the first perfect score of the season, especially if they can find redemption since Len Goodman wasn’t a fan of their Argentine Tango two weeks ago.
Which song and style are you most excited about for the Spring Break Special on Dancing with the Stars season 20? See all of the performances Monday, April 20 at 8pm on ABC.
