There is a lot planned for two nights of great TV for Dancing With The Stars next week!!! Read all about it below including how they plan to “rank” the Cha Cha Relay and who will be performing!! From ABC Media Net….
“Episode 1309 & 1309A” — The semi-finals have arrived and the competition is nothing short of intense as the four remaining couples charm audiences with three routines. Their first performance is an Argentine Tango, their second dance is either a Paso Doble or Samba — one of which is a style dance they have not yet performed — and their third dance will be the Cha Cha relay, in which all couples will dance to the same song. Their Cha Cha will not be scored, but it will be ranked by the judges: The couple who takes first place in the ranking will receive 10 points, the second-place couple will get 8 points, the third-place couple will get 6 points and the fourth-place couple will take 4 points. Monday night’s show also includes a fierce Pro Argentine Tango performance choreographed by world renowned Argentine Tango master dancers and choreographers Sandor and Parissa. Pro dancers Tony Dovolani, Kym Johnson, Kiki Nyemcheck, Sasha Faber and Oksana Dmytrenko will accompany Sandor and Parissa in this piece, live on “Dancing with the Stars,” MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14 ( 8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Also on Tuesday’s results show, we have a truly kinetic and captivating performance from Cobra Starship featuring Sabi, performing their explosive hit single, “You Make Me Feel,” accompanied by pro dancers Kym Johnson, Tristan MacManus, Sharna Burgess and Sonny Pederson. Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen recording group Cobra Starship are currently celebrating the blockbuster success of their hit single, “You Make Me Feel…(Feat. Sabi),” from the group’s latest album, “Night Shades.” The band’s certified platinum single is currently a top five favorite at CHR/Top 40 radio outlets nationwide. The band recently accompanied Justin Bieber on his successful South American Tour and will next hit the stage for a series of radio-sponsored holiday concerts.
The final “AT&T Spotlight Performance” of the season highlights four talented boys, Kyle Scanlan, David Guzman, Jacob Guzman and Matt Gilmore from The Gold School in Brockton, Massachusetts. Their inspiring performance will be accompanied by female pro dancers Chelsie Hightower, Lacey Schwimmer, Sharna Burgess and Peta Murgatroyd. As one of the best dance schools in the country, The Gold School is known for producing amazing dancers. These four particular teen boys are members of the school’s Project Moves campaign, which helps raise awareness to the bullying epidemic that continues to plague schools across the country. Growing up as male dancers, the boys have been targets of bullying themselves. However, with their common love of dance, the talented young dancers have learned how to triumph over adversity. Kyle, David, Jacob and Matt are assets to their community, incredible dancers and proof that there is nothing wrong with following your dreams.
