‘Dancing With the Stars: Athletes’ Premiere Dances Revealed
First night jitters are getting a little too real!
The premiere of Dancing With the Stars: Athletes is on Monday, April 30, and the 10 driven contestants are hard at work memorizing their routines, icing their sore muscles, and getting measured for custom costumes.
With only a few days left, ABC has released exciting info about the Season 26 premiere episode, like what styles of dance the contestants will perform and how to vote for your favorite.
Viewers can vote online at ABC.com from 8pm ET until shortly after the couple dances. Then those votes will be tallied and added to the judges’ numbers, which will result in one couple being eliminated at the end of the episode.
