“Dancing with the Stars” celebrates American Week as all eight remaining couples strut their stuff to classic American themed songs, Monday, April 18 at 8:00 pm ET/PT on The ABC Television Network.
On Tuesday, a fourth couple will be eliminated from the competition and special musical guest country star Toby Keith performs two of his biggest hits. In a moving tribute to his country and U.S. Troops overseas, the Grammy-nominated artist will sing “American Soldier,” accompanied by “Dancing with the Stars” pros Anna Trebunskaya and Jonathan Roberts, and “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” with Maks Chmerkovskiy, Lacey Schwimmer and the “Dancing with the Stars” Dance Troupe. This week’s “Macy’s Stars of Dance” American week performance is a powerful number choreographed by Jamal Sims. “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show” airs Tuesday, April 19 at 9:00 pm ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.
As part of American Week, Tuesday’s “Macy’s Stars of Dance” performance will be inspired by the classic story of the journey of a small town boy through the Big Apple in pursuit of the American dream. Jamal Sims (“Footloose,” “Rock of “Ages”) will choreograph and star in the moving number, which will feature a variety of iconic New York City scenes. Sims’ other recent choreography credits include the “Step-Up” film series and numbers for such artists as Madonna, Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus.
By Tuesday evening’s end, one couple will be eliminated, as determined by a combination of the judges’ scores and viewers’ votes for Monday’s performance. Who among the eight remaining teams will leave the ballroom floor?
