International superstar Pitbull returns to the ballroom and for the first time joins Julianne Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli as a guest judge on October 20’s Dancing with the Stars. The multi-platinum rapper previously performed “Echa Palla” on the DWTS Season 16 finale in May 2013. Pitbull will kick-off the night with a steamy performance of his hit single Fireball — a hot song with a sexy Latin beat that begs to be danced to. The song’s music video is full of great dance moves, and I expect that the DWTS pros should put on a performance that leaves the dance floor en fuego! After Pitbull gets our bodies steaming, he will join the judges panel and Season 17 contestant Leah Remini will serve as Tom Bergeron’s guest co-host as Erin Andrews covers the MLB World Series.
This is turning out to be a good day for Pitbull — in addition to performing and judging tonight on DWTS, the star was just announced as the host of the 2014 American Music Awards (airing on ABC Sunday, Nov. 23).
The nine remaining celebrities will perform to a mix of Pitbull’s hits and personal favorite songs and dance styles will include Salsa, Rumba, Foxtrot, Tango and Jazz. It will be interesting to see what kind of music Pitbull has selected as his favorites, I bet he has pretty diverse taste. At the end of the night, one couple will face elimination based on scores from last week’s switch-up and the October 6th’s scores from the week themed “Most Memorable Year.” Michael Waltrip and his partner Emma Slator and Jonathan Bennett and his partner Allison Holker have the lowest combined scores for those two weeks earning 45 out of 80 for Michael & Emma and 48 out of 80 for Jonathan & Allison. Tommy Chong & Peta Murgatroyd may also find themselves in the bottom this week.
