Dancing with the Stars: Double elimination this week, flu strikes dancers

Tonight on the "Dancing with the Stars" competition show, Donny Osmond and partner Kym Johnson will be dancing the quickstep, according to Entertainment Tonight's Web site. There will also be team competition, with Osmond and Johnson joining Kelly Osbourne and partner Louis Van Amstel and Derek Hough and Joanna Krupa to do the tango.

The latest flu victim on Dancing with the Stars is Lacey Schwimmer.

Schwimmer, who dances with "Iron Chef America's" Mark Dacascos will be replaced on tonight's show by fellow pro Anna Trebunskaya.

It looks as though Mya and Dmitry Chaplin, Dacascos and Trebunskaya, Aaron Carter and Karina Smirnoff, Michael Irvin and Anna Demidova will be set up as team Paso Doble.

Dancing with the Stars is more than halfway over with only seven couples remaining, and that numbers gets a lot smaller this week with yet another double elimination.

Week 7 will give the finalists a bit of freedom, as each couple can choose any dance form on the season so far they haven't done. Combine with team dancing, week 7 of Dancing with the Stars will separate the leaders.

From Tweets and other sources, here is what we can expect tonight.

Joanna and Derek: RumbaDonny and Kym: QuickstepKelly and Louis: SalsaMya and Dmitry: FoxtrotMark and Anna: SambaAaron and Karina: JiveMichael and Anna: Uknown

Another "treat" for viewers is expected on Tuesday's results show, as the Ballas Hough Band, fronted by Mark Ballas and Derek Hough, is expected to perform.
