The stars have 2 dances, first group dance, on Stevie Wonder week on 'Dancing with the Stars'

If only the team dances on "Dancing with the Stars" were like the Sharks and Jets squaring off. We'll have to see what happens Monday night, with the first team dances of season 16.

It should be quite a show because music legend Stevie Wonder will be performing the songs live for the couples, who have two dances this week.

For their partner dance, "Bachelor" Sean Lowe and Peta are working on a samba, as are actor Andy Dick and Sharna. Andy tweeted a goofy photo: "Thinking about dancing... @DancingABC #DWTS http://instagram.com/p/YRlXi8itCM/ ."

NFL star Jacoby Jones and Karina are practicing a quickstep, as are country singer Kellie Pickler and Derek.

Soap star Ingo Rademacher and Kym will dance a tango, while boxer Victor Ortiz and Lindsay will do a rumba.

Disney star Zendaya and Val are rehearsing on a cha cha, while Olympian Aly Raisman and Mark will do a foxtrot.

Aly tweeted, " @MarkBallas & I will be dancing the foxtrot first!! Who can guess which Stevie Wonder song we'll be dancing too!?! #DWTS @DancingABC ."

But that's not all. The eight remaining couples will divide into two teams for the first group dances of the season.

Get ready for Team Pickler Dick (as Andy coined on Tuesday night). Kellie, Andy, Sean, Aly and their partners make up Team Samba and will dance to Wonder's "Superstition."

Zendaya, Jacoby, Victor, Ingo and their partners make up Team Paso Doble and will dance to "Higher Ground."

Zendaya tweeted a picture of their rehearsal: " #teamPaso #shadowpuppets @VICIOUSortiz @karina_smirnoff @kim_johnson @dance9lindsay ... http://www.mobli.com/media/show/id/39116573 … "

Last week, comedian D.L. Hughley was eliminated.

The competition airs Monday night at 8:00 on ABC. Catch the pre-show online Monday night before the show at:
