We are down to five couples in Season 12 Week 8 of Dancing With The Stars and this week saw our couples do two dances. One rehearsed and then an Instant Dance where they learn the music and then go and rehearse while the other couples are dancing. That’s a lot of pressure, but at this stage in the game they must be pretty used to it.

It’s Guilty Pleasures Night on Dancing with the Stars, despite the fact that just watching DWTS IS the guilty pleasure. Couples dance to music considered “guilty pleasures”. Hanson is guest house-band this week, and they all look strangely overgrown, but then it has been a Bieber lifetime since they’ve been on the airwaves.

This week, it’s Dancing with the Stars‘ first-ever classical week, complete with a 46-piece orchestra, opera singer Katherine Jenkins, and hostess Brooke Burke dressed as Aphrodite. I wish I’d have known there was a dress code! Added to this array of classic culture-clash, is David Garett, a classical rock violinist, who opens the show doing an electric violin version of Beethoven’s Fifth.
