Our favorite dancing duos are about to turn into foxtrotting trios come Week 9 of “Dancing With the Stars.”
In the upcoming Season 22 installment of the hit ABC series, the remaining five couples will each add a third dancer to their secondary routines. Audiences are getting an early look at which troupe member is joining their favorite groups on the night of the anticipated semifinals.
During rehearsals, Sharna Burgess snapped a picture, revealing Hayley Erbert would be joining her and Antonio Brown for their Week 9 performance.
“Trio week with the beautiful @hayley.erbert!!!” Sharna captioned the photo of the two ballroom beauties caressing Antonio from all angles. “@ab is loving it #semifinals.”
But Antonio wasn’t the only Season 22 stud getting swarmed by gifted women during practice. Nyle DiMarco was all smiles as he struck a pose with his partner Peta Murgatroyd and troupe dancer Jenna Johnson.
“Soooooooooo happy to be a part of #teamRedefiningDance trio this week,” Jenna gushed on Instagram with a picture of the talented threesome.
But while some competitors gave viewers a look at their trio dances, Paige VanZant showed fans what she and her partner Mark Ballas have in store for their solo, gravity-defying Week 9 routine.
“It’s going down,” Paige quipped in the caption of a video that showed off their team’s physical abilities. In the clip, Mark throws Paige into the air before catching his ballroom buddy. With a nervous laugh, Paige tells Mark that he'd thrown her just a little too high.
Paige and Mark have used their strength and athletic abilities to their advantage in Season 22 of “DWTS,” using everything from duel cartwheels to impressive lifts. Although the two haven’t revealed which troupe member will be accompanying them during their group routine, we know the three will most likely pull off some jaw-dropping acrobatics.
“Dancing With the Stars” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.
