Monday’s “Dancing with the Stars” is going to be taking on a theme that has been a part of the show in one form or another over the years, and it’s a pretty fun one: Dances of various decades. Given all of the time travel that is incredibly popular across all TV at the moment, it only seems appropriate that we would have a show that also sends many of the Stars and their pros through different eras and challenges the pros to come up with interesting routines.
Below, you can take a look at what all of the remaining pairs are performing, with of course our personal thoughts attached.
Marilu Henner & Derek Hough – Charleston – “Never Forget You” by Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox featuring Addie Hamilton (1920s) – Love the Charleston. Performers like Marilu are the ones who can pull it off.
Terra Jolé & Sasha Farber – Foxtrot – “Cheek to Cheek” by Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong (1930s) – It’s a playful, fun dance, and one that Terra should be able to tackle as a comeback from an off week.
James Hinchcliffe & Sharna Burgess – Jitterbug – “In the Mood” by Glenn Miller and His Orchestra (1940s) – This is one of our favorite Glenn Miller songs! Basically, we’re feeling that James has even more pressure to rock this now!
Calvin Johnson Jr. & Lindsay Arnold – Jive – “Good Golly Miss Molly” by Little Richard (1950s) – Another fun song, and one that Calvin can use to show off his goofy side.
Laurie Hernandez & Valentin Chmerkovskiy – Quickstep – “One Fine Day” by The Chiffons (1960s) – We don’t usually get a chance to say that we know every single song being performed in a show, so that’s exciting! This is also a fun song to do on the show.
Jana Kramer & Gleb Savchenko – Samba – “Get Down Tonight” by KC and the Sunshine Band (1970s) – We don’t know how you make a disco song into a samba, but we’ll find out.
Maureen McCormick & Artem Chigvintsev – Tango – “You Give Love a Bad Name” by Bon Jovi (1980s) – Awesome. Love Bon Jovi, love the song, and we can see an intense tango coming from this.
Ryan Lochte & Cheryl Burke – Rumba – “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith (1990s) – Aren’t there so many other nineties songs that could be done here? This has the potential to be all sorts of hokey, and it’s not really Ryan’s fault.
