Tomorrow is Election Day. The producers of Dancing With The Stars are no dummies! They’re competing with election coverage by starting at 7pm and expanding the show to 90 minutes. They’re also adding MORE stars! Welcome [lastfm]Rod Stewart[/lastfm], [lastfm]Taylor Swift[/lastfm] and the Broadway cast of “Mary Poppins.” I want to see Rod do “Chim Chim Cheree.”

The six remaining couples celebrate the show’s 200th episode with the challenge of performing an iconic dance from the “Dancing with the Stars” history vault and competing in a team dance, on “Dancing with the Stars,” Monday, November 1 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Six former “Dancing with the Stars” celebrities return as guest judges as they watch one of their iconic performances recreated on the dance floor. Helio Castroneves, Kelly Osbourne, Mel B, Drew Lachey, Gilles Marini and Emmitt Smith revisit the ballroom to act as a special ‘fourth judge’ in the iconic dance competition. The second element of the show will be a team competition. For the first time in the team competition, fan favorites and former Mirror Ball champions Apolo Anton Ono and Kristi Yamaguchi return as team captains.
Also, on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,” Tuesday, November 2 (8:00-9:30 p.m., ET), multi-platinum music sensation Taylor Swift performs, famed Rock icon Rod Stewart entertains the crowd, and Macy’s Stars of Dance features a performance by the cast of the Broadway hit, “Mary Poppins.” In addition, the seventh couple to be eliminated this season will be sent home.
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Grammy Living Legend Rod Stewart will be performing “I Get a Kick Out of You” from his brand new album, Fly Me to the Moon…The Great American Songbook, Volume V , which was released on October 19th and debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart. Fly Me to the Moon…Volume V is the latest chapter of his Grammy-Award winning Great American Songbook series which has enjoyed unprecedented success as the biggest selling ongoing series of new music recordings in history, with over seventeen million copies worldwide.
This week’s Macy’s Stars of Dance performance will feature the cast from the smash hit Broadway musical, “Mary Poppins.” Led by Caroline Sheen as Mary and Nicolas Dromard as Bert, they will perform the show-stopping tap dance number “Step in Time.” “Mary Poppins” is produced for the stage by Disney Theatrical Productions and Cameron Mackintosh. With four productions currently running on three continents, “Mary Poppins” is one of the biggest stage musical successes to emerge from London or New York in recent years. Worldwide to date, the show has grossed over $447 million and welcomed over 6 million guests. There are two productions playing domestically: The Broadway production of “Mary Poppins” officially opened at the New Amsterdam Theatre on November 16, 2006 and has been seen by over 2.4 million theatergoers, and the North American Tour began its acclaimed run in March 2009. In addition, “Mary Poppins” can also be seen at the Circus Theatre in Scheveningen, Holland, outside of Amsterdam, and in Melbourne, Australia, at Her Majesty’s Theatre.
