“Episode 1409 & 1409A” – After last week’s nerve-racking double elimination, the four remaining couples face off in the semifinals of “Dancing with the Stars,” MONDAY, MAY 14 (8:00-9:31 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. The couples will perform one new Ballroom and one new Latin dance to determine which three couples will land in the finals.

On TUESDAY, MAY 15 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET), special musical guests Carrie Underwood and Alanis Morissette will hit the stage with unforgettable performances on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show.” Award winning Country superstar Carrie Underwood is set to perform “Good Girl,” the first single off her brand new album, “Blown Away.” Her exciting performance will be accompanied by Tristan Macmanus, Sharna Burgess, Henry Byalikov and Emma Slater. Multi-platinum, Grammy ® Award-winning artist Alanis Morissette will hit the stage with a world premiere performance of her new single, “Guardian,” from her upcoming album, “Havoc and Bright Lights.” Her performance will be accompanied by Blake McGrath and Tyne Stecklein.

During Tuesday night’s results show we will also have an incredible performance from the upcoming Warner Bros Pictures feature release, “Rock of Ages.” The electrifying performance will feature two-time former “Dancing with the Stars” champion Julianne Hough and her co-star, actor/singer Diego Boneta. Directed by Adam Shankman (“Hairspray”), New Line Cinema’s adaptation of the smash hit Broadway musical “Rock of Ages” hit theaters June 15th. The movie musical stars Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Malin Akerman, Mary J. Blige, Bryan Cranston, with Alec Baldwin and Tom Cruise.

In the final “Macy’s Stars of Dance” performance this season, two yet to be named “DWTS” pros will perform a riveting Samba to “End of Time.” All season long, fans have voted on the performance song, style, costumes and pro dancers for the season’s Macy’s Design-a-Dance.

Also and in case you haven’t heard, Dancing With The Stars has been renewed for another season. YAY!!

DWTS14 Semi-Finals Mark Ballas To Remind Judges Katherine Jenkins Can Really Get Down

Mark plans to get Katherine’s sassy and sexy on, not to mention, he’s also going to remind the judges that Katherine can “really get down”. Below is more in a take from USA Today. More at the link including his reactions about last week’s dances and his plans for Mother’s Day.

I’ve really been enjoying training this week and both dances suit Katherine nicely. This week, we have the quickstep and salsa, both of which are favorites of mine. We have great songs and themes for each one, and I’m looking forward to treading the boards .

I suspect people may have forgotten how sassy and sexy Katherine can be, so I’m glad we’ll have a chance to remind them with the salsa. If you look back at our jive, samba and Argentine tango, you’ll realize that “Welsh Wiggles” can really get down! I’m going to have to make the judges rememember that.

DWTS14 Donald Driver And Peta Murgatroyd Planning To Clean Things Up For The Judges

Donald Driver explains to the LA Times why he thinks the judges are tough on him. He and Peta plan to hit the practice floor hard this week in order to clean things up.

Q: That jive trio is one of the best dances in the history of the show. And you only got a 28? What can you possibly do to top that and get a 30?

We had a lot of fun with it, perfect score or not. Hopefully a lot of fans thought the same thing as you and voted for us! In the judges’ eyes we obviously have a few little things we can clean up, so we’re going to hit the practice floor hard this week and get it done.

Q: Do you think because of your athletic background that the judges are a little tougher on you?

I don’t think it has to do with athletics as much as their belief that I can be a really good dancer. They are going to keep pushing me until I get to the level they believe I am capable of reaching.

Be sure you read the full interview at the link too. Donald talks of the Trio Jive with Karina and Peta (pictured above) and how he handles his nerves before and during the show. He also discusses being homeless at one time and how it led to his charities. Such a fighter….and one with a huge heart.

Picture above courtesy of ABC. You can view more photos of them and the cast from last week at the official site of Dancing With The Stars HERE.

UPDATE: And here these two are on Access Hollywood today. Donald wants to get that Mirror Ball for Peta!! It’s like the foorball playoffs for him and he doesn’t want to let her down. They also talk about their goals going into the Semi-finals, how the fans have got them this far, and more….
