Dancing with the Stars’ Michael Jackson Tribute

What was once attempted by So You Think You Can Dance will now be done on Dancing with the Stars.

On next week’s results show, the ABC program will honor Michael Jackson with three different numbers. The dances - which will be performed by the professionals - were choreographed by a team of people including Cheryl Burke (the pro featured above in Season 2 dance), Derek Hough, Tony Dovolani, Mark Ballas and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Although the three “iconic” songs chosen will be kept a surprise, the tribute comes with a blessing from sister . La Toya - who was once rumored to be a contestant on the reality show - told Access Hollywood: “I’m so excited. I can’t wait to see that. I’m really looking forward to that. That’s gonna be fabulous.”

That episode of DWTS will air Tuesday, October 20 @ 9:00.
