Week 3: Britney Night

Due to both Cody Rigsby and Cheryl Burke testing positive for COVID-19 and being in quarantine, their dance will be performed in separate rooms. Derek Hough also missed the live show out of an abundance of caution due to a possible COVID-19 exposure, so that means Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli will only be judging during Britney Night.
