Scoop: DANCING WITH THE STARS on ABC - Monday, November 7, 2016The six remaining celebrities will dance two show-stopping dances – one from some of the hottest Broadway musicals, and a second where they are paired up for a “Team-Up Challenge” – as “Showstoppers” night comes to “Dancing with the Stars,” live, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network.

Idina Menzel will perform her new single, “Queen of Swords,” and join Bruno Tonioli, Carrie Ann Inaba and Julianne Hough as a guest judge.

For the first dance, the couples will each dance a style they have not yet danced to a song from a hit Broadway musical. The teams traveled the country to see famous shows in person to get inspiration for their dances in the ballroom on Monday night. Couples will re-create dances from “Chicago,” Broadway’s longest-running American musical, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month and playing at the Ambassador Theatre in New York; the Tony and Grammy Award-winning hit musical “Jersey Boys”; multi-Tony Award-winning “Cats,” one of the most recognizable and longest running shows, recently revived on Broadway; “Sweet Charity”; “The Wiz” and the Tony-nominated “Waitress.” Each couple will perform either a samba, Argentine tango, waltz, Charleston, paso doblé, contemporary or jazz.

Following their first dance, each couple will be paired up with another couple to perform in the “Team-Up Challenge.” Each team will dance together to one song, and for a portion of the dance, the two celebrities will dance together without the assistance of their professional partners. Each team will perform either a paso doblé, contemporary or jazz routine. The judges will score the “Team-Up Challenge” dances. The points from the “Showstoppers” routine and the “Team-Up Challenge” will be added together for the final judges’ scores.

At the end of the night, one couple will be eliminated, and the five remaining couples will advance to the semi-finals.

The couples will dance to the following “Showstoppers” songs (in alphabetical order):

Marilu Henner & Derek Hough – Samba – “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)” from “Jersey Boys,” featuring guest performances by Mark Ballas and The Four Seasons

Laurie Hernandez & Valentin Chmerkovskiy – Argentine Tango – “Cell Block Tango” from “Chicago”

James Hinchcliffe & Sharna Burgess – Jazz – “A Brand New Day” from “The Wiz”

Calvin Johnson Jr. & Lindsay Arnold – Waltz – “Memory” from “Cats,” featuring a guest performance by Leona Lewis

Terra Jolé & Sasha Farber – Charleston – “If My Friends Could See Me Now” from “Sweet Charity”

Jana Kramer & Gleb Savchenko – Waltz – “She Used to Be Mine” from “Waitress”

The Team-Up Challenges are as follows and will dance to the following songs:

Team-Up #1: James & Sharna/Calvin & Lindsay - Paso Doblé – “No Good” by Kaleo

Team-Up #2: Jana & Gleb/Laurie & Val – Contemporary – “Bird Set Free” by Sia

Team-Up #3: Marilu & Derek/Terra and Sasha – Jazz – “Big Noise from Winnetka” by Bette Midler
