'Dancing With The Stars' Athletes Season 26 Week 3 Will Have Triple Elimination!

'Dancing With The Stars' Athletes Season 26 Week 3 Will Have Triple Elimination!

We’ve got all the details about next week’s Dancing With The Stars: Athletes — and you need to pay attention.

In round one, each couple will perform an individual dance inspired by the MVP in each athlete’s life. Each couple will perform a foxtrot, Viennese waltz, quickstep, rumba or contemporary routine. Then in round two of the evening, the athletes will lace up for a Ballroom Battle dance-off with three toe-to- toe performances. Each dance-off pairing will perform a cha cha, jive or salsa.

During each dance-off, the public will be allowed to vote for their favorite couple via an online “Passion Meter” at abc.com during the live EDT/CDT airing of the show – and in the event of a tie on the judges’ panel, the couple that wins America’s Vote will be named winner of the dance-off.

The couple that wins each dance-off will receive bonus points, which will be combined with their individual dance scores from round one. Those totals will be added to the previous week’s public votes to determine the results of the triple elimination at the end of the night.

The three remaining couples will move on to the finals, airing on May 21st, where, at the end of the evening, one of them will be crowned champion and take home the coveted Mirrorball trophy.
