THE COMPETITION CONTINUES
AS NINE CELEBRITY AND PRO-DANCER COUPLES COMPETE FOR THE COVETED MIRRORBALL TROPHY ON ABC’S ‘DANCING WITH THE STARS,’
MONDAY, OCT. 21
“Week 6” – After a memorable “Disney Night” where there was no elimination, nine celebrity and pro-dancer couples return to the ballroom and compete on the sixth week of the 2019 season of “Dancing with the Stars,” live, MONDAY, OCT. 21 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. (TV-PG, L) Episodes can also be viewed the next day on ABC.com, the ABC app and Hulu.
The show will open with the couples entering the ballroom to “Celebration” by Kool & The Gang. In addition, the cast of Dancing with the Stars – Live Tour 2020 will perform a dance choreographed by Emmy® Award-winning Mandy Moore. The nationwide tour kicks off Jan. 9 in Richmond, Virginia.

Vying for America’s vote, each couple will dance to a variety of songs including Carrie Underwood’s “Southbound,” Wham!’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,” Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing,” Queen’s “Somebody to Love,” Stevie Wonder’s “Part-Time Lover,” Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone You Loved,” among others.
This week, the live vote (via abc.com, the ABC app and SMS/text) of weeks five and six will be combined with the judges’ scores of both weeks and tabulated in real time, with the bottom two revealed during the broadcast. The live votes will occur each week only during the live broadcast in the EDT/CDT time zones (but fans in all U.S. time zones may vote within that window). And for the first time in “Dancing” history, judges will decide which celebrity up for elimination stays in the competition and which celebrity’s journey comes to an end.
The couples are (with their dance choice) the following:
Country artist Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko (Contemporary)
Model and photographer Sailor Brinkley-Cook and Val Chmerkovskiy (Jazz)
Pop star Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber (Quickstep)
