“Dancing With The Stars” airs its seventh performance episode of season 16 tonight April 29, 2013. It’s LATIN NIGHT for the remaining seven contestants and their professional partners.
We have a new twist tonight which will save the top scoring couple from elimination tomorrow night. The rest will then compete in the Dance Off to earn extra judges’ points to increase their overall score. Looks like DWTS is doing all it can to save surprise eliminations at this point.
Bad news for Mark Ballas fans! He injured his back in rehearsals earlier this week. It was so bad that he could not move for two days. If he is unable to dance tonight, Henry Byalikove will dance in his place.
We won’t be doing our usual live blog. BUT, a full recap of DWTS 4/29/2013 episode including judges’ comments, scores, songs and leaderboard will be posted as soon as possible tonight. Meanwhile, we have all of the voting telephone numbers below. Performance videos will be posted ASAP as well. If you missed any of last week’s show, click here for a full recap and performances!
