‘DWTS’ American Week: Hines Goes Romantic, Kirstie Goes ‘Hoochie’
“Dancing with the Stars” is going patriotic for Week 5 of performances Monday night with the first-ever American theme.

The theme is more pegged to the songs, rather than the dance, therefore some of the contestants are dancing the Brazilian Samba, or the Viennese Waltz, among others.
While the remaining eight celebrities aren’t allowed to reveal their songs, they did dish a bit on their dances and what viewers can expect. “Yes, it is American week and we’re going to show our American pride and do a sexy Fox Trot. It’s basically celebrating America. It’s all American songs, ” explained Romeo’s partner Chelsie Hightower.
