Shania Twain set to guest judge, perform new song; one couple will be eliminated night's end
The nine remaining couples set their sights on the glitz and glamor of Tinseltown as they dance to celebrate "A Night at the Movies," on "Dancing with the Stars," live, Monday, Oct. 23 (8-10:01 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network. Each couple will attempt to capture the spirit of a specific movie genre - action, foreign, spy, musical, sci-fi, drama, sports or animation - and perform a paso doblé, jazz, rumba, Argentine tango, samba, jive or quickstep. At the end of the night, based on scores and votes from last Monday, one couple will be eliminated.
As a special treat, multiple award-winning country music artist Shania Twain will join Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba as a guest judge - and will also perform her new song, "Soldier," from her latest album, "Now."

ABC has launched the first-ever official "Dancing with the Stars" Fantasy League on abc.com/dfl. The game allows players to predict which couple will win the season and take home the coveted Mirrorball Trophy. Players earn points for correct predictions, and each point is an entry into the grandprize drawing for a chance to win a trip for four to Disney's Aulani Resort in Hawaii and other exclusive prizes. Fans can also play the weekly game to earn more points and chances to win. Each week, players choose three couples they predict will earn the highest scores in that week's episode(s). Each point the couples earn on the show is another entry toward the grand prize and first prize sweepstakes.
For week six, viewers may cast their votes for their favorite couples via phone during and up to 60 minutes after the end of the "Dancing with the Stars" broadcast in each time zone. Online voting at ABC.com at http://dwtsvote.abc.go.com/ and on Facebook at http://bit.ly/2o1VO7b is open for 24 hours, beginning from the start of each episode on the East Coast at 8 p.m. and closing at 8 p.m. Tuesday.
