For some of the stars, week three of the 16th season of "Dancing with the Stars" will either be their worst nightmare come true or they will relive a fantasy – because it's prom week!
So, just like prom, let's set our expectations impossibly high, just so reality can dash our hopes away by the end of the night. The eleven remaining couples must perform one unlearned dance.
Season 16 wild card Andy Dick and Sharna are plotting out a cha cha. Andy's partner tweeted, "WOW What a rollercoaster this is! Im so proud of @andydick and grateful 2all the #andydick fans coming back to support us Much love 2 u all!"
Country singer Kellie Pickler and Derek are practicing a jive. She tweeted, "Thanks so much for supporting/voting for Derek & me on DWTS! We are so thankful to be able to dance another week! Time to get our JIVE on!"
But fellow country singer Wynonna Judd and Tony are going a different direction with a samba. She tweeted, "You'll understand tomorrow night why I haven't been Tweeting much. Tony & I have been VERY VERY busy. Monday night's dance is my fav so far!"
We'll also get a Latin dance from NFL star Jacoby Jones and Karina, who are working on a rumba.
Soap star Ingo Rademacher and Kym will get spicy with a paso doble. Ingo tweeted, "You know how I said quickstep was kicking the shit out of me. Well paso is no different. Every bone is crushed :-) #dramatic :-)."
Comedian D.L. Hughley and Cheryl are also going Latin with a salsa. With his low scores, he desperately tweeted, "My salsa's gonna be hot but still need your votes...tmrw #DWTS get ready to vote 12x text 12x Facebook 12x & http://abc.com ."
Bachelor Sean Lowe and Peta are also working on a cha cha. Sean tweeted, "Big day tomorrow! Getting energized for rehearsal with @hydroxycut !"
Boxer Victor Ortiz and Lindsay must come up with a contemporary dance. He tweeted, "Workin hard on this dance for tomorrow's show! I hope everyone is havin a great EASTER! #tiring ."
TV reality star Lisa Vanderpump and Gleb are cooking up a Viennese waltz, as are Olympian Aly Raisman and Mark. Not surprising, the 18-year-old is pumped for prom week, tweeting, "Excited to wear a prom dress tomorrow night hehe #DWTS@DancingABC ."
Highest-scoring star so far – and likely winner – Disney star Zendaya and Val are working on a waltz.
We'll see who gets crowned prom king and queen Monday night at 8:00 on ABC.
