ABC press release:


THE SIX REMAINING COUPLES PERFORM TWO ROUTINES,
ON ABC'S "DANCING WITH THE STARS," MONDAY, MAY 6

Jason Derulo and Emeli Sande Perform on
"Dancing with the Stars the Results Show," Tuesday, May 7

"Episode 1608 & 1608A" - Six remaining couples take to the dance floor, MONDAY, MAY 6 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on ABC. For the first time this season, each couple will perform two routines in an effort to impress the judges and earn America's votes. In the first round, the couples will perform a traditional ballroom dance in a style that they've not yet done. In the second round, the couples will dance as part of a trio, featuring an eliminated pro or troupe member. In addition, viewers will be called to action on Twitter to choose new dance styles for each couple for the following week of competition. The new styles will include, Afro-Jazz, Disco, Flamenco, Hip-hop, Lindyhop and Charleston.

On TUESDAY, MAY 7, 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 singer Jason DeRulo, who will perform his current single, "The Other Side,"as well as Emeli Sande, who will perform her hit, "Next to Me," and her new single, "Heaven." The show will also feature a spectacular opening number choreographed by Jason Gilkison and featuring the pro and troupe dancers. In addition, "Macy's Stars of Dance" returns for its final installment of the season, featuring Derek Hough and Jaimie Goodwin. Paying homage to a Fred Astaire classic -- but with a modern twist -- this mind-bending routine will take place in a rotating room in yet another first for "Dancing with the Stars" and live television.

Jason Derulo has become an international phenomenon -- selling over 14 million tracks with almost 10 billion in cumulative radio audience and nearly 700 million views on his Youtube channel -- due to a string of Top 10 singles, "Watcha Say," "In My Head," "Ridin' Solo," "Don't Wanna Go Home" and "It Girl." After spending a year recovering and recording following a freak accident, the singer-songwriter is back with his latest single, "The Other Side," which has become the No. 1 most added record at Top 40 this year and the 2nd fastest most-added record in the history of the format. His third album will be out this fall.

With her album "Our Version of Events," Emeli Sandé smashed The Beatles' chart record for the most consecutive weeks in the UK's Official Albums Chart Top 10 of any debut album, according to the Official Charts Company. The album has spent 63 weeks in the Top 10, including 10 weeks at No. 1. The 26-year-old Scottish singer was the only artist to perform at both the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 Olympics. People hailed "Our Version of Events" as one of the year's best debuts, and The New York Times called it "unerringly beautiful." "Next to Me," her multi-format smash single, has sold more than 500,000 copies in the U.S., and the accompanying video has more than 30 million views. The three-time BRIT Award winner has contributed tracks to the films "Trance" and "The Great Gatsby," and written songs for such artists as Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Leona Lewis and Susan Boyle.

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.

ABC press release:

"DANCING WITH THE STARS" CELEBRATES ITS 300TH EPISODE
WITH PERFORMANCES BY THE WANTED AND AVRIL LAVIGNE

The Five Remaining Couples Compete in the Semi-Finals

"Episode 1609 & 1609A" - Five remaining couples take to the ballroom floor during the Semi-Finals on MONDAY, MAY 13 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET). Each couple perform two routines, inching their way one step closer to the coveted mirror ball trophy. Last week viewers were asked to vote via twitter on a new style of dance for each couple to perform; this week the couples perform their chosen style, including the Flamenco, Charleston, Afro Jazz, Lindy Hop and Hip Hop. Each couple will also be challenged to take on a ballroom or Latin style dance they have yet to perform this season.

On TUESDAY, MAY 14, "Dancing with the Stars" celebrates its 300th episode (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET). The show will feature music by The Wanted, who will perform their hit, "Fill A Heart," and Avril Lavigne will perform her new single, "Here's to Never Growing Up."  The 300th show celebration will feature a spectacular opening number choreographed by Jason Gilkison with 22 pro and returning favorites, including Chelsie Hightower, Dmitry Chaplin, Louis VanAmstel and Anna Trebunskaya. In addition, "AT&T Spotlight Performance" returns for its final installment of the season featuring Sophia Lucia, an incredible 10-year-old dancer who recently set the Guinness World Record for consecutive pirouettes. One couple will be eliminated at the end of the night.

Known as The Wanted, Tom Parker, Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness and Nathan Sykes have become front-page news with their ferociously infectious tunes, rock solid friendship and laddish charms. Since the UK release of "All Time Low" (from their self-titled debut album of 2010), they've become a sensation in the UK, Ireland, South East Asia and across Europe, piling up a string of No. 1 singles in the UK. They have artfully transcended the boy band mould and brought a blast of much-needed fresh air to British pop music.

Avril Lavigne has made an indelible mark on the music community, selling more than 35 million albums worldwide, earning 8 Grammy nominations and winning 7 Canadian Juno Awards. She burst onto the music scene in 2002 with the critically acclaimed "Let Go," featuring the smash singles "Sk8r Boi" and "Complicated." Her 2004 release, "Under My Skin," debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts, as did her third album, "The Best Damn Thing," which produced the irrepressible No. 1 single, "Girlfriend," logging more than 198 million views on YouTube!  Lavigne also wrote the song "Alice" for Tim Burton's critically acclaimed Disney Film, "Alice in Wonderland." Her fourth studio album, "Goodbye Lullaby," featured the smash-hit singles "What the Hell" and "Smile," released in 2011 to critical acclaim. She is working on her 5th studio album to be released in the fall of 2013.

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.

ABC press release:



SEASON FINALE

FOUR COUPLES REMAIN -- BUT ONLY ONE WILL TAKE HOME
THE COVETED MIRRORBALL TROPHY -- ON THE SEASON FINALE
OF ABC'S "DANCING WITH THE STARS"

Musical Performances from Pitbull, Wynonna, PSY and Jessica Sanchez

"Episode 1610 & 1610A" -- After 10 weeks of entertaining, stylized dancing from Jacoby Jones & Karina Smirnoff, Kellie Pickler & Derek Hough, Alexandra Raisman & Mark Ballas and Zendaya & Valentin Chmerkovskiy, only one couple will be crowned "Dancing with the Stars" Champions. These four remaining couples will have one last opportunity to impress the judges and viewers on MONDAY, MAY 20, concluding with the Season Finale, TUESDAY, MAY 21 on the ABC Television Network.

In the final two-hour performance show on MONDAY, MAY 20 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET), the remaining couples will compete in three rounds of dance. In the first round, each couple will take on a new routine in a dance style that the judges would like to see again. In round two, the couples will be challenged to a Cha Cha relay, where each pair dances to a different section of the same song. In the last round -- and one of the biggest competitive dances of the season -- the couples take on a supersized freestyle featuring special effects, additional dancers and unexpected surprises.

In the two-hour Season Finale on TUESDAY, MAY 21 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), the entire celebrity cast returns, including Andy Dick, Dorothy Hamill, D.L. Hughley, Wynonna Judd, Victor Ortiz, Ingo Rademacher, Sean Lowe and Lisa Vanderpump. The returning stars will perform a show-stopping opening number with the pro and troupe dancers. The show will feature music from Pitbull, who will perform his new single, "Hands Up," and Wynonna will sing "I Want to Know What Love Is." In addition, PSY will take to the stage with his latest hit, "Gentleman," and Jessica Sanchez will sing her version of Pitbull's "Feel This Moment." The fourth-place couple will be eliminated within the first hour of the show, and in a final element of the competition, the three remaining couples will perform a new routine in an "Instant Dance"- where they will tackle a style they know, but to music given to them for the first time live on television. This routine will be scored out of 30 and will round out the judges' scores across both nights.

Miami-native Pitbull, a.k.a. "Mr. Worldwide" and "Mr. 305," is a globally successful musician, performer, business entrepreneur, fashion icon and actor whose career sales exceed 5 million albums and 40 million singles worldwide. Pitbull has had No. 1 hits in more than 15 countries, and his videos have been viewed more than 3 billion times. His world tour sold out concerts in Latin America, Canada and Europe, before bringing the party to the United States, Japan and Australia. Pitbull's new single, "Feel This Moment" featuring Christina Aguilera, from his critically-acclaimed album "Global Warming," is another worldwide smash. The song is the third Top 10 hit from "Global Warming," which also includes his global smash "Don't Stop the Party" and "Back in Time," the chart-topping anthem from the action-adventure-comedy, "Men in Black 3."

Five-time Grammy winner and New York Times bestselling author Wynonna Judd has always revolved her career around telling stories. Whether performing alongside her mother as one half of the legendary duo, The Judds, or pushing the boundaries on her own mega-successful solo path, Judd's ability to reach the heart of the human spirit through her bold and unflinching honesty is the entertainer's true gift. Respected by the millions of fans who are drawn to her music and her undeniable talent, Judd's rich and commanding voice has sold over 30 million albums worldwide spanning her epic 29-year career. Charting countless singles, including 20 No. 1 hits and over 60 industry awards, the iconic performer was once dubbed by Rolling Stone "the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline." Judd's highly anticipated eighth studio album, in which she's Joined in the studio by her husband, bandleader and producer Michael "Cactus" Moser, is scheduled for release this year. This effort, known as a true labor of love, features her upcoming single "Something You Can't Live Without," released by Curb Records. Most recently she published a novel, Restless Heart, and was part of "The Judds" docu-series on OWN.

"Gangnam Style" transformed Korean pop trailblazer PSY into a worldwide juggernaut. Boasting the first music video in history to surpass 1 billion views on YouTube, the song went on to become both the "most-viewed" and "most-liked" ever on the site-an historic milestone. And yet, with the irresistible and inimitable multiplatinum single merging Korean flavor with global pop panache, PSY fever was only just beginning. Having hinted online at what was to come, he debuted the track's follow-up, "Gentleman," in front of 50,000 hometown fans at the Seoul World Cup stadium in April 2013, broadcast live on YouTube. As fast as you could repeat the title, it set a new YouTube record for "most views in a day." It hit No. 1 on iTunes in over two dozen territories and climbed to the Top 5 of the Billboard Hot 100. But his is no overnight success story: Born Jai-Sang Park, PSY crossed the world and attended Berklee College of Music in Boston as, as he puts it, "a freshman for ten years." Immersing himself in East Coast culture, he embraced hip-hop, learning everything he could about it. As a result, he infused his first two offerings, "PSY from the PSYcho World!" and "Cheap 2," with a slick rap style. Rising in his native Korea, he co-wrote every song he released and penned hits for numerous national stars. He even penned the official tune for the South Korean national team in the 2012 London Olympics, dubbed "Korea." Employing traditional instruments and melodies, it's a fitting tribute to his heritage and an invigorating anthem.

Jessica Sanchez, the 17-year-old California native who won over "American Idol" viewers with her diva-worthy vocal range, released her debut album, "Me, You & the Music," last month on 19 Recordings/Interscope Records. The high-energy, beat-soaked first single, "Tonight," featuring Ne-Yo, has just gone for adds at radio. Born and raised in Chula Vista, California, Sanchez has worked on honing her vocal versatility for almost her entire life. She started singing when she was two and lists Mariah Carey, Etta James and Ray Charles among her musical influences. At age ten she performed Aretha Franklin's "Respect" on an episode of "Showtime at the Apollo." A year later she competed on the premiere season of "America's Got Talent," reaching the wild-card round before being cut. Over the next few years, Sanchez performed at venues both large and small, including a 2008 San Diego Chargers game, and released a number of covers (such as Etta James' "I'd Rather Go Blind") through an independent record label. After nailing her "American Idol" audition in 2011, she climbed to the final two and landed her deal with Interscope soon after the season finale. Diving into the recording of her debut last summer, Sanchez took a break from the studio to tear through a rousing, choir-backed rendition of Marvin Gaye's "All I Need to Get By" at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

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.

I always thought it would be close and that Zendaya/Val and Kellie/Derek would be the two finalists. I'm SO happy that Kellie and Derek won! She was fantastic!

Zendaya is a wonderful dancer. I can't wait to see what the future holds for her!

ABC press release:

ABC ANNOUNCES THIS SEASON'S "DANCING WITH THE STARS" CELEBRITY AND PROFESSIONAL PAIRINGS LIVE ON "GOOD MORNING AMERICA"

THE STELLAR NEW CAST WILL TAKE TO THE STAGE WHEN "DANCING WITH THE STARS" PREMIERES, MONDAY, MARCH 18 ON ABC
"Dancing with the Stars the Results Show" Premieres in Week Two With the First Elimination, Tuesday, March 26
This season's dynamic lineup of stars -- including a country music legend, a figure skating champion, a boxing dynamo, an Olympic Gold medalist and the youngest contestant to ever compete on the show - will perform for the first time on live national television with their professional partners during the two-hour season premiere of "Dancing with the Stars," MONDAY, MARCH 18 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
       
As announced this morning on ABC's "Good Morning America" by "Dancing with the Stars" hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet, the 11 celebrities, with their professional partners, heading to the dance floor this season (in alphabetical order) are:

ZENDAYA COLEMAN -- Multi-talented actress and singer Zendaya Coleman stars as Raquel "Rocky" Blue, one half of the comedic duo in the hit Disney Channel series "Shake It Up!," and is currently recording her debut album on Hollywood Records. Born September 1, 1996, in Oakland, California, Coleman grew up as part of the California Shakespeare Theater in Orinda, where her mother works as the House Manager. In addition to training at the theater's student conservatory program and later performing in numerous stage productions, Coleman helped her mom seat patrons and sell raffle tickets to benefit the theater. While attending the Oakland School for the Arts, she starred as Little Ti Moune in "Once on This Island" at the Berkley Playhouse, and in the breakout role of the male character Joe in "Caroline, or Change" at Palo Alto's TheaterWorks. She also studied at the CalShakes Conservatory program and at the American Conservatory Theater. Coleman has performed around the world, including at the White House and in the 2011 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and she tours select cities with her Z-Swagg Dancers and Singers. The name Zendaya is derived from the word that means "to give thanks" in Shona (a Bantu language native to the Shona people of Zimbabwe). Coleman has been a fashion model for Macy's, Mervyns and Old Navy, and was also one of the back-up dancers in a Sears commercial featuring Disney Channel star Selena Gomez. She now resides in Los Angeles, California with her family and dog, a giant Schnauzer named Midnight. ZENDAYA COLEMAN partners with VAL CHMERKOVSKIY.

ANDY DICK -- Andy Dick is an American comedian, actor, writer, director, musician and producer. Dick grew up in the Chicago area, where he was involved in numerous stage productions. During his senior year of high school, his love of performing proved decisive, as he was elected homecoming king. His first regular television role was on the short-lived but influential "Ben Stiller Show." Dick was a mainstay on network television from 1995-2006 on NBC's "NewsRadio" and ABC's "Less Than Perfect." In 2001 he wrote, directed, produced and starred in "The Andy Dick Show" for MTV. He has also starred in a number of feature films, including "In the Army Now," "Employee of the Month" and "The Hebrew Hammer."

DOROTHY HAMILL -- Dorothy Hamill captured the Gold medal at the 1976 Winter Games in Innsbruck, Austria at the age of 19. Overnight she became one of those rare champions who transcends her sport and captures the country's imagination. Still, she has said she is most proud of her World Championship title in Gothenburg, Sweden, which followed her Olympic win; at the time, everyone advised her to retire from amateur competition, saying that even a second-place finish would tarnish the lustre of her Olympic Gold. Characteristically, once she had set her mind to it, she would not be dissuaded, and she won. As a professional Hamill has skated with many productions, including the Ice Capades for eight years. Four ABC primetime television specials have been produced in her honor, and she has produced and starred in her own touring productions of "Cinderella - Frozen in Time," "Hansel, Gretel, the Witch and the Cat" and "Nutcracker on Ice." She won an Emmy Award for her lead role in "Romeo and Juliet." Hamill has been inducted into the Olympic Hall of Fame and the Figure Skating Hall of Fame. She was very proud to run the torch at Olympic Stadium in Salt Lake City in 2002 and to skate the closing ceremonies with vocalist Harry Connick Jr. Recently she released her memoir, A Skating Life: My Story, which made the New York Times bestseller list.
