It’s fusion dance week in Dancing With the Stars 21 and for tonight, the seven remaining dance couples will be dancing to a pair of routines chosen by another team. These routines must be “fused” together. Take note that there’s only one episode for the week and that is tonight. No elimination this week due to the presidential election.

What have will be the couple’s routines for tonight? Apolo & Karina will dance the Cha cha/Paso Doble. Emmitt & Cheryl will dance Rumba/Samba. Gilles & Peta will dance Tango/Samba, Kelly & Val will dance Foxtrot/Cha Cha. Kirstie & Maks will dance Quickstep/Samba. Melissa & Tony will dance Tango/Cha Cha and Shawn & Derek will dance Tango/Paso Doble. However, due to a neck injury, Derek might not be able to dance. He will be replaced by Mark Ballas though.

Anyway, aside from the dance fusion, the dance couples will be competing in this season’s swing dance marathon. With this, an additional of up to 10 extra points may be added to their scores for the night. Who will get the highest score?

The opening number for tonight is choreographed by Henry Byalikov, by the way, featuring The Troupe and four pro-dancers this season. Also included in the list of performers are the AT&T Spotlight Performance, which features some of Utah’s best young dancers.

The dance couples are feeling the pressure for tonight, that’s for sure. Peta talks about the high level of pressure for them pro dances to make the best choreography for their partners.

Again, be sure to vote for your favorite couple so that they remain in the competition. Being in the top of the leaderboard doesn’t mean the dance couple is safe.

The call numbers are posted below while the scores will be posted during the show. Follow us on Twitter, add us on Google Plus or like us on Facebook for updates on Dancing With the Stars 11/5/12 scores.
