Tristan MacManus and TV host Nancy GraceABC

Week eights of ABC’s ‘Dancing with the Stars’ are raising the stakes for the remaining five dancing duos. On tonight’s live competition show, couples will not only be performing their rehearsed dances, but will also be subject to ‘Instance Dances’.

Although the style for the Instant Dance is provided in advance for the couples, the music is not, meaning each pair has a drastically short time to prepare for the live show - only twenty minutes.

Ireland’s favorite dancer Tristan MacManus and TV host partner Nancy Grace will be performing the tango tonight, along with their Instant Dance, which will be a jive. According to a blog on, MacManus and Grace will be dancing to "The Naughty Lady of Shady Lane" by The Ames Brothers. Last week, the couple barely made it through the public vote to return for another week of competition.

Team MacGrace was at the bottom of the judges’ scoreboard last week with only 44 points (garnered from the combination of their individual and team dance) and were in the bottom two of the public vote. Ultimately, David Arquette and partner Kym Johnson were sent home, much to the surprise of viewers.

Will Tristan and Nancy make it through another week? Catch them perform their tango and jive tonight on ABC at 8pm!
