This week on “Dancing with the Stars,” it’s movie night, with eight remaining couple doing the Jive, Quickstep, Cha Cha Cha, Tango, Foxtrot and Rumba to iconic songs from famous films such as “Pulp Fiction,” “Breakfast Club” and “Risky Business,” among others. For the first time this season, the Monday night broadcast will be a 90-minute show, MONDAY, APRIL 19, (8:00-9:30 p.m.,ET), on the ABC Television Network.
On Tuesday, the fourth couple to be eliminated this season will be sent home on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,” TUESDAY, APRIL 20 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET).
Also this week, Platinum-selling soul star Maxwell will perform his chart-topping single “Fistful of Tears” on Tuesday. The singer/songwriter recently scored a three-peat with “Fistful of Tears,” his third consecutive No. 1 on Billboard’s Urban Adult airplay charts, making him the first male artist to achieve this feat. Grammy Award winner superstars Maxwell and Jill Scott will kick off their U.S. arena tour on May 21 in Cleveland. Maxwell is catapulting off his two recent Grammy Awards and his No. 1, platinum “BLACKsummers’night” (Columbia), which dominated year-end critics lists. Last fall, Maxwell entered the history books at Billboard when “Pretty Wings” and “Bad Habits,” the first two singles from “BLACKsummers’night,” monopolized the top two slots on the Adult R&B radio airplay chart.
Costa Rican singing sensation, Debi Nova, will perform her newest single “Drummer Boy,” while pros Derek Hough, Damian Whitewood, Tony Dovolani and Dmitry Chaplin accompany her on the dance floor. Her first single was co-written by Nova and produced by Marius de Vries and Dreamlab. Nova is set to release her Spanish/English, hybrid debut album, “Luna Nueva,” on Decca/Surco Records this May. Nova has amassed an impressive body of work including six Grammy-nominated projects, a No. 1 single, collaborations with the likes of Black Eyed Peas and Ricky Martin, and touring the world. She has been writing and performing professionally since the age of 14 and signed her first songwriter deal at the age of 17, subsequently penning songs for Latin recording artists Belinda and RBD, Sean Paul, Mark Ronson and her own single, “One Rhythm,” which reached No. 1 in Latin America and on the U.S. dance charts. The forthcoming “Luna Nueva,” co-produced by Surco Records founder Gustavo Santaoalla (two-time Oscar winner, multiple Grammy and Latin Grammy winner, Juanes, Café Tacvba) and Marius de Vries (five-time Grammy Award nominee, two-time BAFTA winner, Madonna, Josh Groban), is an irresistible hybrid of Latin rhythms and straight-ahead pop.
This week’s Macy’s “Stars of Dance” performance is “Dance in Movies,” a powerful tribute to some of the most memorable dances from films throughout the ages. The performance will be arranged by award-winning choreographer, Marguerite Derricks, who reprises some her famous choreography from “Austin Powers” and “Fame,” with a special appearance by Debbie Allen.
Also on Tuesday, “Dancing” alum and comedian Adam Carolla will be back do a comic “between the mirror balls” bit.
