The judges will be evaluating the remaining contestants: actress Leah Remini, Glee star Amber Riley, comedian Bill Engvall, TV personality Jack Osbourne and Disney star Corbin Bleu.

During the show, couples will first perform a routine to an original or "plugged" version of their selected song, and then in a second round, they'll dance to an acoustic or "unplugged" version of the same song.
