“Dancing With the Stars” fans will be getting a special double-dose of the Season 27 teams during Week one of the competition, as the new cast takes to the dance floor twice during the two-night premiere. Before the premiere comes to an end, however, one team will be forced to hang up their dancing shoes and say goodbye.

The ABC series will air episodes on both Monday, Sept. 24 and Tuesday, Sept. 25, with one team being eliminated at the end of the second night of competition. According to a press release from ABC, the week’s eliminated couple will be whichever team has the lowest combined total of judges’ scores and viewer votes from night one, as well as the lowest scores from the judges on night two. In addition, the results of a live viewer vote during the second episode will be added to the scores. However, ahead of saying goodbye to the first team, they will all prepare a performance for each night of the competition.

Having two shows means that the competing celebrities will be issued a challenge of trying to perfect two routines during their first week of the season. However, it appears the series will make it a little less difficult for the celebrities, who are performing the same routines on both nights, but to different songs.

So what will the Season 27 pairs perform in these episodes? Here are the routines:


  • Alexis Ren and Alan Bersten (#TeamRenTen): On Monday night, the Instagram model will tackle a routine to “Good Golly Miss Molly” by Little Richard. She will dance again on Tuesday night to the song “Shake the Room” by Gamu.
  • Bobby Bones and Sharna Burgess (#TeamBeautyandtheGeek): The radio host and longtime pro will perform first to “T-R-O-U-B-L-E-” by Travis Tritt, before following up on night two to “Gimme Some Lovin’” by The Spencer David Group.
  • Tinashe and Brandon Armstrong: The singer and first-time pro will perform routines to “I’m a Lady” by Meghan Trainor and “Yes” by Merry Clayton.


  • Danelle Umstead and Artem Chigvintsev (#TeamBlindFaith): The Paralympic skier will tackle her routine first to “Rise Up” by Andra Day on Monday. She will then hit the floor again on Tuesday, dancing to “Strong Ones” by Armin van Buuren feat. Cimo Fränkel.
  • Evanna Lynch and Keo Motsepe (#TeamKevanna): The “Harry Potter” actress will attempt to bewitch the judges and viewers first to “Do You Believe in Magic” by Aly and AJ, and then again to “Rewrite the Stars” by Zac Efron and Zendaya.
  • John Schneider and Emma Slater (#TeamSuperDuke): Schneider will dance to “Good Ol’ Boys” from “Dukes of Hazzard” by Waylon Jennings on night one. Night two, he’ll tackle a routine set to “Orange Colored Sky” by Nat King Cole.
