Dancing With The Stars just had its first elimination of the season. But the show must go on! The remaining contestants are hard at work in the rehearsal room to prepare for Britney Night, which is coming up on October 4.
All the contestants will honor pop princess Britney Spears with their routines.
Over the past year, the #FreeBritney movement has garnered a lot of attention. Netflix even recently put out a documentary entitled Britney Vs Spears exploring the infamous conservatorship battle. Now, Dancing With The Stars wants to do an entire Britney-themed show by dancing to her greatest hits.
Dancing With The Stars Will Bring The Heat For Britney Night
So what can we expect to see from the October 4 DWTS episode?
”It speaks for itself. We’re doing a whole night dedicated to Britney. It’s a lot of support, a lot of love. We [support] #FreeBritney,” Gleb Savchenko told Page Six in an exclusive interview.
Gleb and his celebrity partner Mel C plan to perform a tango to “Toxic.” Reigning DWTS champion Artem Chigvintsev choreographed an Argentine tango to that song last year — a routine that earned him an Emmy nomination.
“It’s like the best song ever, especially for tango. It’s going to be really cool,” Gleb continued. “The costumes and the whole concept, the number, it’s really dope. We’ll definitely do something, some “toxic” sexy moves.”
And as for the reigning champ, Artem and his partner Melora Hardin will cha cha to “(YouDrive Me) Crazy.”
“We’re doing a cha cha, which is a quite fast-paced dance, but it’s a Latin dance so it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Artem also told Page Six. “A lot of hip movement, hip action, trying to portray what Britney is. She’s a big performer, so we’re going to try to put on a great performance.”
Melora added that the pair intended to “go a little crazy” for Britney Night.
Will Cody Rigsby and Cheryl Burke come back this week?
Cheryl Burke and Cody Rigsby had to sit out last week due to Cheryl’s positive COVID-19 test. So will they be able to perform this week? It depends.
“Cheryl’s going to be in the Zoom calls just like this, teaching choreography, giving me notes and being there every step of the way,” Cody said in the interview with Page Six. He’s tested negative so far, but DWTS still asked him to sit out last week due to an abundance of caution.
Based on this information, it really seems like Cody may be back in the ballroom for Britney Night, even if Cheryl isn’t. DWTS hired a few extra pro dancers this year for situations just like this.
Will you tune in to see this tribute to Britney Spears? Be sure to let us know in the comments. We’re very excited for the newest episode.
