'Stars' will perform 2 dances for Motown week competition

LOS ANGELES - Motown Week looks to be shaping up as a promising installment on "Dancing with the Stars."

The dances were revealed for the sixth week of the 14th season on ABC15.

Several couples will tackle a rumba, including Disney star Roshon Fegan and Chelsie; actor William Levy and Cheryl; and singer Gladys Knight and Tristan.

The spotlight will no doubt be on Gladys this week, a Motown fixture herself. Expect the show to come up with one or two features catered specifically to her. And wouldn't it be ironically fitting if she actually got eliminated this week? I can hear the gasps now.

Green Bay Packer Donald Driver and Peta will do a foxtrot, as will TV host Maria Menounos and Derek.

Actress Melissa Gilbert and Maks are planning a Viennese waltz. Classical singer Katherine Jenkins and Mark are working on a samba. Jaleel White and Kym are practicing their quickstep.

Katherine tweeted, "It's Sunday morning which means camera blocking for DWTS but its Motown Week so we're all in a shoop shoop mood! #DancingABC."

But the stars don't get off that easy. All eight remaining couples must also take part in a Motown dance marathon.

Singer Gavin DeGraw and Karina were eliminated last week. The other couple in the bottom two was Jaleel and Kym, after viewer voters were added into the judges' scores.

The competition airs at 7 p.m. Monday on ABC15.

Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, and Martha Reeves are slated to perform.
