“Las Vegas Night” – After taking in the music and culture of New York City on last night’s show, the 12 remaining couples are set to celebrate the allure of Sin City and take a gamble on dancing to some of the city’s most iconic songs as Las Vegas Night comes to “Dancing with the Stars,” live TUESDAY, OCT. 2 (8:00-10:01 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.
The dazzling opening number will feature the “Dancing with the Stars” pros and Vegas mainstays Blue Man Group performing to “Jackpot.” In addition, the creative collective from Blue Man Group’s performances will include two iconic pieces adapted from their nightly show at Luxor Hotel and Casino. The Blue Men’s performances will include “Electronic Drumbone,” an exciting and tubular percussion piece using a custom-built instrument, along with “Drum Finale Throw Down,” the tribal and colorful drumming performance for which the Blue Men are famous.
As a special treat, Boyz II Men will perform “Ladies Man” alongside DeMarcus and Lindsay, and “Dancing with the Stars” season nine champion Donny Osmond will serenade Danelle and Artem as he performs “Luck Be a Lady” alongside their dance.
