'DWTS' prepares to welcome 'Ballroom Greats'

Dancing with the Stars will celebrate 'Ballroom Greats' on tonight's episode of the ABC competition.

The six remaining couples will each take to the dance floor following a private lesson from either former Latin World Champion Shirley Ballas or former Ballroom World Champion Luca Baricchi.

They will also face another world-renowned dancer on the judging panel, as Donnie Burns MBE, the most-decorated Latin dancer of all time and head of the World Dance Council, joins Len, Bruno and Carrie for the scoring.

Tonight's episode will also mark the first time this season that the couples have to perform twice in one night.

The first performance will be a dance style that they have yet to showcase in the competition, while they will split into two teams for a cha cha challenge afterwards that will be awarded a group score. Hines Ward will captain Kirstie Alley and Kendra Wilkinson, while Chelsea Kane will lead Ralph Macchio and Romeo.

Tomorrow night's results show will see the departure of another couple alongside performances by Nicki Minaj and James Blunt.

The rapper will perform her hit track 'Moment 4 Life', with Lacey Schwimmer, Chelsie Hightower, Kiki Nyemchek and Sonny Pederson dancing to the song, while Blunt will sing 'I'll Be Your Man' accompanied by amateur US Latin champions Val Chmerkovskiy and Daria Chesnokova.

Viewers can also expect a Macy's Stars of Dance performance honouring James Brown, choreographed by Kevin and Marcel Wilson and starring Wayne Brady.

Following http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tv/s92/dancingwiththestars/news/a316588/fifth-celeb-leaves-dancing-with-the-stars.html - Chris Jericho's exit last week , the remaining couples in the competition are: Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas, Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff, Romeo and Chelsie Hightower, Hines Ward and Kym Johnson, and Kendra Wilkinson and Louis van Amstel.

Dancing with the Stars airs tonight at 8/7c on ABC.
