In “Dancing With The Stars” Season 21 week 8 all the seven pairs will be competing in "The Dance-Off Challenge” also called “The Immunity Dance” on Monday. The remaining celebrity contestants will pay tribute to influential figures in their lives, with Argentine Tango, Foxtrot, Contemporary, Salsa, Paso Doble and Viennese Waltz routines.

Nick Carter will do a contemporary routine while Carlos PenaVega has salsa and Bindi Irwin will do a foxtrot, Buddy TV reported. The highest scoring couple will receive immunity for the week and get extra three points that will be added to their score for the next elimination, Pure DWTS writes. In week 7, there is only a difference of five points between the first and last place on the leaderboard.

The remaining six couples will then vie head-to-head in a series of Dance-Offs for extra points. However, this is the first time that viewers will be able to vote live from the comforts of their homes to decide the winner in each dance-off.

“The couple with the majority of the four potential votes from each dance-off will earn an extra 2 points, increasing their overall score,” Wetpaint reported, quoting ABC.

Let us see who is dancing what in DWTS Week 8:

Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough: Foxtrot to “Grace Kelly” by MIKA

Alexa PenaVega and Mark Ballas : “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay

Carlos PenaVega and Witney Carson: Salsa to “Valio La Pena” by Marc Anthony

Nick Carter and Sharna Burgess: Contemporary to “Can't Help Falling in Love” by Haley Reinhart

Tamar Braxton and Val Chmerkovskiy: “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga

Andy Grammer and Allison Holker: “Isn’t She Lovely” by Stevie Wonder

Alek Skarlatos and Lindsay Arnold: “Holding Out for a Hero” by Ella Mae Bowen

Meanwhile, during DWTS week 7 “Halloween” night was fun and spooky. In the end, Hayes Grier and Emma Slater, who earned 26 out of 30 points were eliminated. Though their waltz routine was elegant, it was a bit too slow.

Bindi Irwin nailed her Argentine Tango routine to “Cry Little Sister” from the 1987 horror film “The Lost Boys” and scored three 10s. The judges were impressed with her vampire queen get up complete with her make-up and fangs.

“Dancing With The Stars” Season 21 airs at 8 p.m. on ABC on Monday.
