ABC(LOS ANGELES) — It’s a big week on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars: All Stars.  Two couples will be sent home, and the celebrities will have creative control over the dances.

Monday’s performance show will feature the 11 remaining couples reinterpreting an iconic DWTS dance, with the celebrity being responsible for all artistic decisions related to the performance.

Bristol Palin and her partner Mark Ballas, who were in last place after the judge’s scores last week, will be dancing the Paso Doble.

In an interview with ABC News Radio, Palin admits she’s “not creative” and knows “nothing” about dance, but promises “something different.”

Kirstie Alley says she loves dancing the cha cha cha, and will be doing it this week to the tune “Moves Like Jagger.” 

Alley’s pro partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, admits he is “terrified” by the prospect, adding, “What happens in the beginning and at the end is out of my hands.”

Dancing with the Stars airs Monday at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.
