So, are we having two dances on Monday? An unlearned dance and the freestyle?? Or is there some other stupid gimmick that I’m not aware of yet? 🙂
Vogue: Yep, Miss Heidi. We are getting two dances….and a “24-Hour Fusion Challenge” on Tuesday night. Lots more info below courtesy of Disney Abc. Let us know what you think, Everyone! Here’s to the Finals!
Heidi: Apparently, the press release is WRONG is a couple spots. Jana is now doing a V. Waltz from week 1.
ETA: I’ve added in the 24-hour fusion dances. General observation: these seem a bit more ballroom-heavy than usual. -Court-
