Watch Dancing with the Stars Week 6 Online


Get ready for a musical tour through the history of American girl groups and boy bands on week 6 of Dancing with the Stars.

Dancing with the Stars does love its themes, and this season, it’s shown a willingness to experiment with the themes. First it was Vegas Night. After the palate cleanser of Disney Night last week, it’s time for something else that’s new.

Let’s run down what ABC has laid out for us in a press release, and we’ll see if you can pick up on it:

Argentine Tango

David Ross and Lindsay Arnold: “I Want You Back” — *NSYNC

He likes to go quite goofy in his dances, so something sensual like this may prove a challenge.


Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd: “Fun, Fun, Fun” — The Beach Boys

Is Len Goodman the father who might take the metaphorical T-bird away from Nick in the form of low scores?

Paso Doblé

Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev: “Free Your Mind” — En Vogue

Have you picked up on it yet? Not yet? Let’s keep going.


Heather Morris and Maks Chmerkovskiy: “Waterfalls” — TLC

Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess: “I Want It That Way” — Backstreet Boys

Perhaps Sharna’s most famous partner on Dancing with the Stars to date was a Backstreet Boy. Someone had fun picking this song out.


Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy: “When I Grow Up” — The Pussycat Dolls

This should be right in Normani’s wheelhouse.


Simone Biles and Sasha Farber: “Survivor” — Destiny’s Child

Still haven’t gotten it? Even with Beyoncé? Samba’s technically difficult, so she may shine here.


Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater: “Reach Out, I’ll Be There” — The Four Tops

Just to hammer it in, here’s ABC’s lineup and soundtrack for the two group performances.

Team Boy Band

Rashad Jennings, Bonner Bolton, Nick Viall, and David Ross:  “Dancing Machine” — Jackson 5; “You Got It (The Right Stuff)” — New Kids on the Block; “Best Song Ever” — One Direction

Team Girl Group

Simone Biles, Normani Kordei, Heather Morris, and Nancy Kerrigan: “My Boyfriend’s Back” — The Chiffons; “No Scrubs” — TLC; “BO$$” — Fifth Harmony

Hey-la, our money’s on the ladies to show the guys up with a mix like that.
