With another unexpected elimination after Dance-Offs as well as the first perfect scores of Season 28 officially behind them, the remaining six “Dancing With the Stars” teams will be doing whatever they can to try and stay in the competition.

Dance-offs night saw Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber, as well as Kate Flannery and Pasha Pashkov land in the Bottom Two when the viewer votes were factored in with their scores from the judges, and considering the former Fifth Harmony singer had gotten a perfect score, the judges were forced to let the former “Office” star go. Now, as fans continue expressing outrage over Sean Spicer still being in the competition as everyone else disappears, the routines on “Boy Bands And Girl Groups” night are more important than ever.

This week will also be the most challenging for the teams as well, as they prepare not one, but two full individual routines for the first time, as they dance first to songs made famous by girl groups (and will see their routines also scored by guest judges Emma Bunton from The Spice Girls). They will then head into round two, where they will dance a second routine to a song made famous by a boy band, while guest judge (and Season 4 runner-up) Joey Fatone scores them. At the end of the night, two more teams will be in the Bottom Two, and another will say goodbye to the competition—one week shy of the potential semi-finals.

So what will teams perform to in their efforts to stay in the competition as it nears its end? Check out the planned setlist below.
