ABC Releases Details For Dancing With The Stars Season 18 Week 4

ABC MediaNet has released details on next week’s Dancing With The Stars. As previously reported, next week is the Switch Up dance. It won’t be until that time that the new couples will be revealed. Julianne Hough will be the guest judge. Also, for the first time, the Macy’s Stars of Dance will be back with “oversight” by Derek Hough!! NOTE: There is a lot of controversial talk on the Switch Up voting currently and whether our votes counted or not. For more, see this post for some news that came out last night.

ETA: According to this tweet by George Pennacchio, this is how the votes will go down for the next elimination to take place on April 14th…

OK #DWTS fans, the info you’ve been asking about: ABC says scores & votes from 3/31 & 4/7 will be combined to eliminate one couple on 4/14.

George also tweeted this about the viewer votings…

@jl2285 I’m confident producers went with the viewer votes. I say just enjoy the week ahead.

“Episode 1804” – The votes are in and for the first time ever celebrities will switch professional dance partners on “Dancing with the Stars,” MONDAY, APRIL 7 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. This past week, America was given the power to vote and change celebrity and professional dance pairings and now each star must face this new challenge. The new couples will be revealed live for the first time throughout the evening. The show will begin with an opening number featuring the entire cast followed by each celebrity tackling a new style of dance with their new partner. Additionally, two-time professional “Dancing with the Stars” champion, Julianne Hough, will return to guest judge for the second time alongside Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

“Macy’s Stars of Dance” returns for its first installment of the season with creative oversight by Emmy® Award-winning Choreographer and Pro Dancer, Derek Hough. The unique performance will showcase explosive choreography that blends Latin and contemporary dance styles and will feature both the Pro and Troupe dancers. The piece will also feature “So You Think You Can Dance” all-star Kathryn McCormick.
