The show’s seven remaining couples will rock the ballroom as they dance the Paso Doble and Tango to classic and contemporary rock songs and tear up the dance floor in the show’s first ever rock and roll dance marathon, on “Dancing with the Stars,” MONDAY, OCTOBER 25 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
On the next night, the sixth couple to be eliminated this season will be sent home on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,” TUESDAY, OCTOBER 26 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
On Tuesday’s results show, legendary rock and roll band Heart will play its iconic hit, “Barracuda,” accompanied by “Dancing with Stars” pros Louis Van Amstel, Karina Smirnoff, Derek Hough, Chelsie Hightower, Damian Holbrook and Peta Murgatroyd. Heart recently released its 13th studio album, “Red Velvet Car,” produced by Grammy-winning producer Ben Mink (kd lang, Feist, Bare Naked Ladies), which debuted at No.10 in Billboard Magazine’s Top 200 Album Chart. Their current AC single, “Hey You,” was in the Top 30 for three months, while their classic rock single, “WTF,” hovered near the Top 10 (on those respective charts). Heart has sold over 30 million albums and had 22 Top 40 hits. Over the past decade, Heart songs have achieved ubiquity in pop culture in films (“Shrek 3”), television (“American Idol,” “Glee,” “Dancing with the Stars”), commercials (Honda, Swiffer) and videogames (Rock Band, Guitar Hero), as well as being performed by other top artists (Eminem, Fergie, Gretchen Wilson, among many others). To support the release of “Red Velvet Car,” Heart toured throughout the summer of 2010, including four Lilith Fair shows and nearly 40 headline shows, which continued through September 25 and will pick up again in November and December. Heart’s first album, “Dreamboat Annie,” was released in 1976. The band broke barriers with a repertoire that includes rock classics like “Barracuda,” “Crazy on You,” “Magic Man,” “Straight On,” alongside acoustic standards like “These Dreams,” “Dog & Butterfly” and “Dreamboat Annie.” They were 2008 recipients of VH1 Rock Honors, received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Northwest Grammy Foundation and received ASCAP’s Award for Excellence in Songwriting in 2009.
Also on Tuesday, international Pop icon Kylie Minogue will perform her new single, “Get Outta My Way,” which hit the top of the Billboard Club Chart this week and marked her second consecutive No.1 Billboard Club single from new album “Aphrodite,” following the smash “All the Lovers.” This is Minogue’s fifth No.1 club single to date, joining an illustrious list of chart-toppers including “Can’t Get You Out of My Head,” “Love at First Sight” and “Slow.” “Get Outta My Way” impacts mainstream radio on Nov. 1, and a suite of remixes are currently available on all digital download stores. Minogue’s new album, “Aphrodite,” was released in July and debuted at No.19 in the U.S., marking her highest U.S. chart position since 2002’s “Fever.” “Aphrodite” became her fifth No.1 album in the UK, hitting the top spot a full 22 years to the week since her debut album, “Kylie,” entered the chart. The album also made Minogue the first solo artist in the history of the UK charts to have a No.1 album in four different
decades. Around the globe “Aphrodite” debuted in the top 10 in 13 different countries. Over the course of her extraordinary 20-plus-year-career, Minogue has been a global force in pop music and is one of the world’s most successful female artists, with more than 60 million albums sold worldwide and 50 hit singles, including the U.S. Billboard dance-chart toppers “Can’t Get You Out of My Head,” “Love at First Sight,” “Slow” and the Grammy Award-winning “Come Into My World.” She has received countless awards and accolades, including an OBE from the Queen and eight sold-out world tours, including the KylieX2008 tour, which traveled to 21 countries worldwide. Minogue has released ten studio albums, three live CDs, eight live concert DVD’s, plus her Greatest Hits, Ultimate Kylie double album and Boombox The Remix Album 2000-2008. She also has her own successful bed linen line, Kylie at Home, and has released seven fragrances.
