As the cast of Dancing With the Stars braced themselves for tonight's dreaded “switch up” episode, they made their way to the studio for a last-minute practice on Sunday.
Every star will dance with a new partner this week then return to his/her original pair next Monday.
NeNe Leakes and Danice McKellar were in high spirits as they existed their cars en route to rehearsals. Although DWTS has kept the details of tonight's show under wraps, Twitter is abuzz with rumors about the new partnerships. NeNe will reportedly dance a jazz routine with Derek Hough, who was having an intense phone conversation on his way to rehearsals yesterday.
Derek's social media haters hope the new pairing will hinder his chances of winning this year. However, his sister and former DWTS pro Julianne Hough will guest judge so she may vote in his favor.
Meanwhile, the Chmerkovskiy brothers will likely swap partners. Danica and Maks could be dancing the jive. That means Val will be paired with Meryl Davis.
All of the couples will dance a new style and no two will perform the same type of dance.
