Sharna Burgess returns to the dance floor after suffering a knee injury to dance with James Hinchcliffe

'Dancing with the Stars,' airs Monday, Nov. 14, on ABC

The five remaining couples advance to the semifinals in one of the show's tightest competitions ever, on "Dancing with the Stars," live, Monday, Nov. 14 (8-10:01 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network. Each couple will dance two dances - one being a style the couple has not danced to yet, and the second being a trio dance, in which each celebrity couple will dance with a third dancer.

For the trio dance, Laurie Hernandez will dance with Valentin Chmerkovskiy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy; James Hinchcliffe will dance with Sharna Burgess and Jenna Johnson; Calvin Johnson Jr. will dance with Lindsay Arnold and Witney Carson; Terra Jolé will dance with Sasha Farber and Artem Chigvintsev; and Jana Kramer will dance with Gleb Savchenko and Alan Bersten.

The judges will score the trio dances, and the points from the couples' routines and the trio dances will be added together for the final judges' scores. 

Each celebrity will perform a foxtrot, Argentine tango, tango, rumba, quickstep, samba, jive, salsa or paso doblé. At the end of the night, one couple will be eliminated, determining the final four couples that will go on to the finals to vie for the mirrorball.

The couples will dance to the following songs (in alphabetical order):

  • Laurie Hernandez & Valentin Chmerkovskiy - foxtrot - "Hollow" by Tori Kelly
  • James Hinchcliffe & Sharna Burgess - Argentine tango - "Santa Maria" by Gotan Project
  • Calvin Johnson Jr. & Lindsay Arnold - tango - "Seven Nation Army" by The White Stripes
  • Terra Jolé & Sasha Farber - rumba - "Scars to Your Beautiful" by Alessia Cara
  • Jana Kramer & Gleb Savchenko - quickstep - "Go Mama" by Wayne Beckford

The couples plus a third dancer will dance to the following songs for the trio dance:
