Dancing with the Stars Season 20, Week 8 – Who’s Dancing What…and When?

What’s the damn theme for this week?? America’s choice?? :::sigh:::

Vogue: According to our new Media post, the couples have a TRIO dance for next week too.

ETA: Vogue here again. I just did a run through of twitter accounts and instagrams. Below is some more dance info in red.

ETA2: Court hopping in 🙂 Filling in some of the blanks on the trio dances – we’re about 90% sure on Rumer’s trio pro, but we do know for sure that she was the only one who picked a pro/troupe member of the same sex.

ETA3: We’re fairly certain Riker’s trio dance is jazz, by POE. 

ETA4: Based on Peta’s tweet and Rumer’s instagram, it looks like Rumer & Val have pulled yet another switcheroo and have decided to team up with Artem for their paso doble trio.

ETA5: Nastia says her trio dance is jive, and that Derek has been rehearsing with them.

ETA5: According to our new interview with Sharna, she and Noah have a Salsa trio. ~Vogue

ETA6: POE dictates that Chris, like Rumer, also has a paso doble trio…which (at least to me) kinda explains why Lindsay may have been picked. We also have our first song spoiler 🙂 Happy Friday! ~Court~

ETA7: Meant to do this last night after American Pharaoh made me a good bit of money in the Kentucky Derby – then felt sulky after Pacquiao lost to Mayweather 🙁 More songs added – I think Noah’s is actually kind of adorable & cool; interesting to note that BOTH of Rumer’s songs this week are from the Baz Luhrmann show that Rumer was in. Riker will likely get a perfect score, based on the combination of people in his trio, their area of expertise, and the song they got. Oh, and let me settle something once and for all: DEREK IS DANCING IN NASTIA’S TRIO TOMORROW NIGHT. Sasha’s doing most of the heavy-duty dancing, but Derek is in it, and it’s actually very “clever, different, & sexy”, per Deep Throat. Some of you have already beat the talking point of “will/should Derek dance in Nastia’s trio” TO DEATH, so I expect that this might shut some of you up once and for all. Find something else to discuss, you’re boring me to tears.

Rumer and Val – Rumba (“Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps” by Doris Day) for America’s Choice; paso doble trio w/Peta Artem (Song: “Scott & Fran’s Paso Doble” from Strictly Ballroom)

Chris and Witney – Contemporary (“Lay Me Down” by Sam Smith) for America’s Choice; paso doble trio w/Lindsay

Noah and Sharna – Tango (“Geronimo” by Sheppard) for America’s Choice, salsa trio dance w/Emma (Song: “Mr. Put It Down” by Ricky Martin feat. Pitbull)

Robert and Kym – Contemporary (“Champagne Kisses” by Jessie Ware) for America’s Choice; samba trio w/Jenna (Song: “Cinema Italiano” from Nine)

Riker and Allison – V. Waltz (“What Now” by Rihanna) for America’s Choice; jazz trio w/Brittany (Song: “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody” by Fergie)

Nastia and Sasha (filling in for Derek) – Paso Doble (“Centuries” by Fall Out Boy) for America’s Choice; jive trio w/Derek (injury permitting) (To see Nastia, Derek, and sasha’s trio song, visit Pure Derek Hough.)
