STAGE TUBE: Highlights From DWTS' 'Latin Night'
It was Latin Night on last night's DANCING WITH THE STARS and Global Music Icon Carlos Santana took over the ballroom with performances of some of his classic hits throughout the evening. In a stunning opening number with the Troupe, Carlos Santana performed his first ever Top 10 hit, "Evil Ways." He also performed his popular hit song "Maria, Maria," featuring dancers Louis Van Amstel and Anna Trebunskaya. And the remaining nine couples heated up the floor dancing either the Salsa, Argentine Tango or the Samba.
On tonight's Results Show, Grammy® Award-winning band Train take to the stage with an awesome performance of "Drive By," their first single from their latest album, "California 37," accompanied by Louis Van Amstel and Cheryl Burke. Pop sensation Selena Gomez and her band, The Scene, will perform their hit single "Hit the Lights." The Latin themed performances continue with this week's "Macy's Stars of Dance" performance called "Carnaval," a celebration of Latin dances featuring acclaimed percussionist Sheila E. The performance is choreographed by the talented Liz Imperio, who has directed Gloria Estefan's last three world concert tours and choreographed for Madonna and Jennifer Lopez. Also, this week's bottom two couples will face off in a Dance Duel. The two couples will perform the same dance style, this week the Cha-Cha, to the same song at the same time. The dance floor will be split in half as the couples dance side by side and the judges will decide who stays and who goes home. The episode airs at 9:00 pm/ET.
By Tuesday evening's end, one couple will be eliminated, as determined by a combination of the judges' scores and viewers' votes on dances performed on Monday's performance show. Who among the nine couples will be the next to leave the ballroom?
* Gavin DeGraw and partner Karina Smirnoff
