The official word: “Dancing with the Stars” celebrates the legendary music career of Cher MONDAY, NOVEMBER 4 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET). The news was confirmed live on this evening’s broadcast. The iconic Oscar®, Grammy® and Emmy® Award winning singer and actress will open the show with a dazzling and spectacular performance of her hit song “Believe” before joining judges’ Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba to give critiques and scores on each celebrity routine.
The seven remaining couples will compete in two rounds of dance. In the first round, each couple will take on a dance style they have not previously performed including the Tango, Argentine Tango, Contemporary, Viennese Waltz, Jazz, Disco, and Foxtrot. The couple to receive the highest total score from the judges in this round will receive immunity and not be subject to elimination. In the second round, the six remaining couples will compete in a thrilling head-to-head "dance off" competition. The winning couples of the “dance off” round will be awarded additional Judges’ points that will be added to their overall score for the night. At the end of the show, Cher will perform her new single, "I Hope You Find It" from her current album, “Closer To The Truth”, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Pop Charts, before one couple is eliminated.
