NINE REMAINING COUPLES TAKE ON "LEN'S SIDE BY SIDE CHALLENGE"
ON ABC'S "DANCING WITH THE STARS," MONDAY, APRIL 15

Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Anna Trebunskaya, Tristan MacManus, Tony Dovolani,
Gleb Savchenko and Chelsie Hightower Return

Selena Gomez, The Band Perry and Kerli to Perform on
"Dancing with the Stars the Results Show," Tuesday, April 16

"Episode 1605 & 1605A" - Nine remaining couples hit the dance floor and face an exciting new challenge MONDAY, APRIL 15 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET). In another first for "Dancing with the Stars," a new twist called "Len's Side By Side Challenge" tasks each couple to perform a portion of their individual dance alongside a pro dance couple. The pro couples will include returning favorites Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Anna Trebunskaya, Tristan MacManus, Tony Dovolani, Gleb Savchenko and Chelsie Hightower. This new twist will allow the audience as well as judges to compare the celebrity's dance technique in real time to a professional's. Monday will also feature a show stopping opening number with the entire cast, returning pros and dance troupe.

On TUESDAY, APRIL 16 one couple will be eliminated on "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show" (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET). The show will feature music by multi-Platinum-selling artist Selena Gomez who will perform her new single, "Come & Get It," and Country Rock group The Band Perry will perform their hit No. 1 song, "Better Dig Two." The results show will also feature a spectacular opening number choreographed by Mark Ballas and Derek Hough.

"Macy's Stars of Dance" returns for its second installment of the season. Choreographed by Emmy-nominated Stacey Tookey, this ***y and powerful performance will feature dancers Tyne Stecklein and Jeremy Hudson and music by singer/songwriter Kerli, who will perform "Love Me or Leave Me."

World-wide, multi-Platinum-selling Hollywood Records recording artist Selena Gomez debuted her new single, "Come & Get It," this April. "Come & Get It" is the first single from her upcoming album, to be released this summer. Written by Ester Dean (Katy Perry, Beyonce, Usher), M.S. Erikson & T.E. Hermansen (Ne-Yo, Rihanna) and produced by Stargate for 45th & 3rd Music LLC, "Come & Get It" showcases Gomez's sultry vocals in a beautiful and simmering love song. She has already sold over 10 million singles in the U.S., along with three RIAA-certified top-ten debuting Gold albums, and three No. 1 Billboard Dance singles. Currently adorning the cover of Harper's Bazaar, Gomez has most recently been nominated for a Radio Disney Music Award.

The Band Perry, comprised of siblings Kimberly, Reid and Neil Perry, combines classic Country with an eclectic infusion of Rock and Soul that is rounded out by perfect three-part harmonies. The sibling trio's latest offering, "Better Dig Two," garnered the family band a multi-week No. 1 and their third ascent to the top of the charts. The lead single has been certified Platinum for sales of over one million copies and marks the fastest-rising of their career. Since signing to Republic Nashville in 2009, The Band Perry has quickly catapulted into the mainstream, in part due to the success of their Platinum, self-titled debut album. Now approaching sales of 1.5 million, the project produced the Gold-certified No. 1 hit, "All Your Life," the Platinum-certified "You Lie" and the Quadruple-Platinum "If I Die Young," which took the No. 1 position on both Country and AC charts. Their sophomore album, "Pioneer," was released on April 2, 2013, and topped Billboard's Country Album sales chart with its debut.

Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter and producer Kerli will perform her new single, "Love Me or Leave Me," an emotive, heartfelt ballad from her EP, "Utopia," out now on Island Records. "Love Me or Leave Me" is one of seven songs included on "Utopia" written and performed by Kerli. Much of it draws inspiration from both pop and dance genres and was recorded with SeventyEight, U.K. producer Switch (M.I.A., Diplo) and Australian DJ/producer tyDI, while overseen by former Katy Perry A&R man Chris Anokute at Island Def Jam. Her first single from the EP, "The Lucky Ones," landed the top spot (No. 1) on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart, marking Kerli's second No. 1 dance hit following "Army Of Love" in 2011.

Hosted by Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke-Charvet ("Dancing with the Stars" Season 7 champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

Country Superstar Hunter Hayes to Perform Special Duet with Stevie Wonder on Monday

will.i.am and Olly Murs to Perform on "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show," Tuesday, April 23

"Episode 1606 & 1606A" - Eight remaining couples hit the dance floor and pay tribute to singer, songwriter and legend Stevie Wonder, MONDAY, APRIL 22 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET). Stevie Wonder takes over the ballroom as "Dancing with the Stars" devotes, for the first time, an entire evening to one artist. He will perform some of his classic songs, including "Sir Duke" and "My Cherie Amour," and the celebrities will dance to his greatest hits, including "I Just Called to Say I Love You," "For Once in My Life" and "Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)." Special guest country superstar Hunter Hayes will perform with Stevie Wonder in a spectacular opening performance. The night will also showcase two team dances featuring the celebrities and their pro partners.

On TUESDAY, APRIL 23, one couple will be eliminated on "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show" (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET). The show will feature music by seven-time GRAMMY Award winner will.i.am performing his current single, "#thatpower," and international superstar Olly Murs will perform his current hit, "Troublemaker." In Addition, "Macy's Stars of Dance" returns for its third installment of the season, choreographed by AJ Jones.

Stevie Wonder is one of the most celebrated and prominent figures in popular music. The youngest artist to hit No. 1 at age 13, he has since gone on to amass 49 Top 40 singles, 32 No. 1 singles and worldwide sales of over 100 million units. He has won 25 GRAMMY Awards, the prestigious GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award, a Golden Globe and an Oscar, and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll, Songwriters and Apollo Theatre Halls of Fame. He has performed for world leaders and at major events around the world, and is a vital voice for social progress through his humanitarian and philanthropic leadership, including the realization of Martin Luther King Day as a national holiday and working to end apartheid in South Africa. Stevie Wonder is the youngest recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors, is a Commander of France's National Order of Arts and Letters, a recipient of the Library of Congress' Gershwin Prize for Popular Song and a designated UN Messenger of Peace with a special focus on persons with disabilities.

Multiple GRAMMY-nominated artist Hunter Hayes is a multi-talented performer, musician, producer and writer who was nominated for six Academy of Country Music Awards, including nods for his work as artist, songwriter and producer. His critically acclaimed self-titled album has already garnered two No. 1 singles, selling almost five million singles to date, while the album itself nears platinum certification. His current single, "I Want Crazy," is off the forthcoming "Hunter Hayes (Encore)" deluxe edition, due out June 18. Hayes has been touring and performing live for decades. He has headlined sold out venues across the U.S. and Canada and is currently touring with Carrie Underwood on her "Blown Away Tour." The Louisiana native has also shared the stage with Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Trace Adkins, Brad Paisley, Hank Williams, Jr. and most recently Stevie Wonder.

Seven-time GRAMMY Award winner will.i.am is known not only for his work with The Black Eyed Peas, who have sold 33 million albums and 58 million singles worldwide, but also for his work with some of the entertainment industry's biggest names, including Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, Usher, David Guetta and film composer Hans Zimmer. Recognized and honored by numerous industry organizations, will.i.am is the recipient of multiple GRAMMY Awards, a Latin GRAMMY, an Emmy Award, a CLIO Award, two NAACP Image Awards, a VH1 Do Something Award, the BMI President's Award and a 2008 Webby Award. will.i.am's forthcoming solo release, "#willpower," fuses hip-hop, R&B, and electronic/dance music, offering up the latest of his irresistibly infectious and genre-warping party anthems. The album's hook-heavy tracks showcase more than a dozen A-list guest artists, ranging from pop mega-stars (Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, Chris Brown, Nicole Scherzinger, Miley Cyrus) to a highly inspired mix of up-and-comers (including Dutch dance diva Eva Simons, South Korean girl group 2NE1, singer/songwriter Skylar Grey and seven-year-old rapper Baby Kaely). Also featuring fellow BEP member apl.de.ap -- and, perhaps most outrageously, the 70-piece, Prague-based Czech Symphony Orchestra - "#willpower" sees will.i.am expanding his sound by sharing production duties with leading-edge collaborators like Dr. Luke, Cirkut, Benny Blanco, Afrojack, Swedish House Mafia's Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso, Lazy Jay and FRESHM3N III.

Olly Murs is an international superstar whose rise to fame began after he auditioned in 2009 for Britain's top singing competition show, "The X Factor." In a short amount of time Murs has achieved international success, including two double platinum albums and four No. 1 singles in the UK. The British superstar, to date, has sold over 5 million records internationally. Murs celebrated a rare double No. 1 with his latest UK album, "Right Place Right Time," and current U.S. single, "Troublemaker" featuring Flo Rida, simultaneously topping the UK album chart and UK singles chart, respectively. "Right Place Right Time" was released in the U.S. on April 16, 2013. Murs is currently on tour in the U.S. before heading back to Europe to embark on a 2013 summer stadium tour with Robbie Williams.

Hosted by Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke-Charvet ("Dancing with the Stars" Season 7 champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
