"Dancing with the Stars" celebrates the legendary music career of Cher Monday, Nov. 4 (8-10:01 p.m.). The news was confirmed live on Monday evening's broadcast. The iconic Oscar-, Grammy- and Emmy-winning singer and actress will open the show with a performance of her hit song "Believe" before joining judges' Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba to give critiques and scores on each celebrity routine.

The seven remaining couples will compete in two rounds of dance. In the first round, each couple will take on a dance style they have not previously performed, including the tango, Argentine tango, contemporary, Viennese waltz, jazz, disco and foxtrot. The couple to receive the highest total score from the judges in this round will receive immunity and not be subject to elimination.

In the second round, the six remaining couples will compete in a head-to-head "dance off" competition. The winning couples of the "dance off" round will be awarded additional judges' points that will be added to their overall score for the night. At the end of the show, Cher will perform her new single, "I Hope You Find It" from her current album, "Closer To The Truth," which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Pop Charts, before one couple is eliminated.

Cher has been a worldwide superstar for almost 50 years. Her accomplishments reach music, movies, TV. She is an actress, singer, director, documentarian, author and humanitarian. Cher is the only artist to have a No. 1 song in six decades.

Hosted by Emmy Award-winning host Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke-Charvet, "Dancing with the Stars" is the hit series in which celebrities perform choreographed dance routines that are judged by renowned ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
