Monday 10.12 brings us to Switch-Up Week, where the stars get paired up with a different pro for one week only. Carlos will be dancing the quickstep with Witney's maid of honor, Lindsay Arnold! Their musical selection is Elvis Presley's Bossa Nova Baby! We can't wait to see Monday's dance. Carlos seems pretty excited about it too! We'll miss Witney this week, but it should be fun to see what Lindsay and Carlos come up with!

Pairings were voted on by the public on twitter, and those votes were considered in putting together the switch up pairs.
Tom Bergeron will be back on the floor hosting the program tonight. Monday's show will feature former pro Maks Chmerkovskiy as guest judge. And there will be a live performance by Stefano Langone.
VOTING: There will not be an elimination this week due to the switch up. However it's very important we keep voting for Carlos tonight because the votes from the switch up will be combined with votes from last week (10.5) to determine eliminations next week (10.19). SO KEEP VOTING FOR CARLOS!!
ONE OTHER EXCITING NOTE!!! Make sure you keep an eye on the crowd for at least one familiar face as BTR brother James Maslow will be at the show tonight. He and Carlos will be on DWTS All Access as well. Go here during the show to see them!
GO #LINDSANDLOS!!! BUT VOTE FOR CARLOS and #TEAMBROWNSUGAR to keep Carlos safe!
