Tuesday's result show to feature musical performances by Josh Groban and Carly Rae Jepsen, and a special dance performance by Travis Wall's Shaping Sound featuring Maddie Ziegler

The six remaining couples on "Dancing with the Stars" will dance to a song and dance style voted on by viewers for "America's Choice" night Monday, May 4 (8-10:01 p.m., ET). America has creative control of the couples' first dance. The show is asking fans throughout the week via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for their input on wardrobe, set design and visual effects.

Each couple will perform two full routines, including an individual original dance and a trio dance. For the trio dance, couples had the opportunity to pick an eliminated pro or troupe member to enhance their performance and highlight the strengths of each star. The trio dance styles include the jive, paso doble, samba and salsa. At the end of the night, two couples will be eliminated and four couples will move on to the semifinals. 

The "Trio Groups" are:

  • Noah Galloway, Sharna Burgess and Emma Slater
  • Robert Herjavec, Kym Johnson and Jenna Johnson
  • Nastia Liukin, Derek Hough and Sasha Farber
  • Riker Lynch, Allison Holker and Brittany Cherry
  • Chris Soules, Witney Carson and Lindsay Arnold
  • Rumer Willis, Valentin Chmerkovskiy and Artem Chigvintsev

"Dancing with the Stars: The Results" continues Tuesday, May 5 (8 p.m., ET) where couples will face a double-elimination based on combining the judges' scores with the public votes from last Monday's night performance (April 27) and this Monday's night performance. The night kicks-off with a special contemporary dance performance by Travis Wall's Shaping Sound, featuring Maddie Ziegler and "DWTS" dancers Holker and Johnson. Later in the night, Josh Groban will sing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and pop star Carly Rae Jepsen will perform her hit single "I Really Like You."

"Dance Center" is back with Len Goodman, Jerry Rice and Kenny Mayne.
