Dancing with the Stars Week 2: The Two-Night "Hometown Glory" Event

By Micheline Goldstein | Sep 22nd, 2015

Dancing with the Stars is back for Week 2 of Season 21 with a two-night "Hometown Glory" event. With two nights of dancing and two eliminations, the couples are gearing up for one of the toughest weeks of the competition. For the "Hometown Glory" shows, each couple will dance two new dance styles to songs that remind the celebrity and pro dancer of the places that shaped who they are today. Live on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 8|7c, the pairs will dance to a song that commemorates the celebrity's hometown. At the end of the night, the couple with the lowest combined judges' score and viewer votes from Week 1 will be eliminated.

Live on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 9|8c, each remaining couple will dance another dance to a song that the pro dancer has chosen which reminds them of where they grew up. Another couple will be eliminated on the Tuesday night live show, based on the combined judges' and viewer votes from Monday's show.
