The legendary Julio Iglesias sets foot on the "Dancing with the Stars" stage for the first time, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 20 (8:00-9:01 p.m., ET) on "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show." Singing "I Want to Know What Love Is" from his new album, "Romantic Classics," the Latin singer with the sultry voice will be accompanied by professional dancers Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Cheryl Burke as they perform a memorable Rumba. The celebrities will also step aside as eight of the professional dancers entertain the audience with a group jive to Billy Idol’s "Rebel Yell." In addition, Jordi Caballero and Claudia Velasco will showcase the Argentinean Tango to "Dance Away" by Roxy Music.
