Demi Lovato and Huey Lewis & the News perform on "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show," Tuesday, April 2

Dust off your tux and put on your dancing shoes because "Dancing with the Stars" is taking you to the prom, Monday, April 1 (8-10:01 p.m.). The competition continues as the 11 remaining couples cut a rug by performing everything from a Viennese waltz to the paso doble. Adding to the excitement, viewers will crown their celebrity "Prom King" and "Prom Queen" by voting on Twitter. The winning couple will receive bonus judges' points and be revealed on "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show."

On Tuesday, April 2, one couple will be eliminated on "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show" (9-10:01 p.m.). The show will feature musical performances from singer-songwriter Demi Lovato and American pop rock band Huey Lewis & the News. Lovato's new single, "Heart Attack," off her upcoming untitled fourth album, has achieved Gold status in the U.S. and debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes chart in 18 countries. Huey and the boys, who had a string of hits in the 1980s, will perform their single, "The Heart of Rock & Roll," accompanied by the "Dancing with the Stars" troupe. And "Macy's Stars of Dance" is back for its first installment of the season. Choreographed by Nick Florez and RJ Durell, the performance will feature stunts and eight of the hottest dancers working in the industry. Also on the results show, the male pro and troupe dancers perform a special routine.

Viewers may cast their votes for their favorite teams via phone on Monday night during and up to 60 minutes after the "Dancing with the Stars" performance shows. AT&T customers may also vote by texting the word "VOTE" and entering the number that corresponds to the team they want to support (message and data rates may apply). Online voting at www.ABC.com is open from the start of each episode on the East Coast and closes at 11 a.m. on Tuesdays.
