It’s “boy bands vs. girl bands” Week and a Team Competition. Here’s what we know so far….
ETA: All songs & dances updated. Had to raise my eyebrows at more than one of these – really? “I Want You Back” as an Argentine tango??? Well, if anyone can make it work, it’s Lindsay. “Free Your Mind” is one of the most grossly overused songs this show has ever heard, behind “Hey! Pachuco” – hope Artem can make Nancy stand out against memories of Mel B & Sabrina dancing to the same song. Will be interesting to see how Bonner fares with a Backstreet Boys song, considering that Nick Carter is guest judging. Looking at some of the songs chosen, I kinda wonder if this list maybe started as an R&B week, and then got retooled into boy bands vs. girl groups after the fact… -Court-
ETA2: Julianne is definitely NOT judging DWTS tonight as she just posted an instastory showing her with serious bed head on their tour bus.
ETA3: Bonner, Nancy and Nick got the not great spots tonight, but it matters less with each week that goes by. All the women got the pimp spot as well…as expected.
