"Dancing with the Stars" Couples Set to Dance Twice Monday Night

ABC(LOS ANGELES) -- The eight remaining couples on Dancing with the Stars will pull double duty on Monday night.

Each celebrity-pro pair will attempt a dance style they have not previously performed.  Later in the show, the cast will be split into two groups for a choreographed team dance.

Mark Ballas, the pro partner of recently-eliminated contestant Christina Milian, says the team dance can be a challenge for the stars.  He explains to ABC News Radio, "When you're with a team, you all have to match.  So it's all about synchronicity, timing, being, you know, good formation."

Comedian Bill Engvall adds, "We have to learn two dances in the same amount of time it's taken us to learn one."

Pretty Little Liars
actor Brant Daugherty and his partner, Peta Murgatroyd, will perform the jive for one of their dances, and he's looking forward to it.  Daugherty quips, "Oh yeah, love it.  It comes back to my awkward European heritage."

After the show declared everyone safe on last week's show, one couple should be eliminated on Monday night. The fun begins on ABC at 8 p.m. Eastern time.
