It's Motown Week on Dancing With the Stars, and the eight celebrities who are left are ready to boogie on down.

Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins tweeted her excitement: It's Sunday morning which means camera blocking for DWTS but its Motown Week so we're all in a shoop shoop mood!

Professional dancer Cheryl Burke, who is partnered this season with Cuban telenovela actor William Levy, will be dancing a rumba with the six-pack hunk. She tweeted: Hey guys! We dance last tomorrow then do the marathon. Make sure u don't forget to vote. Hope u enjoy our Rumba for Motown week! 

Actress Melissa Gilbert, who has been battling a head injury this season, is determined to keep on going: 3 dances choreographed rehearsed and ready. I'm exhausted and exhilarated! Thanks partner!!

They could all probably learn a thing or two from singer and DWTS competitor Gladys Knight, who is a Motown veteran herself. Her professional dance partner, Tristan MacManus, certainly appreciates this.

To be part of Motown Week in itself is great, but to be part of Motown Week with a Motown legend, for me, is even better, he wrote for Entertainment Weekly.

Gavin DeGraw's elimination last week doesn't seem to have spoiled the singer's mood. He was partnered with professional dancer Karina Smirnoff and eliminated after dancing a samba during Latin Week.

The Chariot singer, who is currently on tour, tweeted his gratitude on Thursday: overwhelmed by the support of my fans, @karina_smirnoff and everyone @dancingabc. Thank you for having my back through this journey.
