On Week 8 of Dancing with the Stars, Season 25, the remaining six couples dance twice including a trio with a former DWTS winner or finalist. Violinist Lindsey Stirling and her pro dance partner Mark Ballas get to perform a Jazz routine with Olympic champion figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi. (Kristi and Mark won the Mirror Ball Trophy on Season 6 in 2006.) The trio performance is choreographed to Seth MacFarlane’s cover of the classic song, “Let’s Face the Music and Dance.” Yes, Seth MacFarlane as in Family Guy, American Dad, Ted, and The Orville.
“Let’s Face the Music and Dance” was written by the legendary Irving Berlin in 1936 for the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers film Follow the Fleet. The song has been covered by many artists including Nat King Cole, Doris Day, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, and Diana Krall. MacFarlane’s cover is on the soundtrack of the animated film, SING — see link above. Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays at 8pm on ABC.
