ABC’s Dancing With The Stars is back tonight with the live results show. Along with finding out who will be heading home after last night’s performances, we will watch Mary J. Blige take the stage for some performances tonight! Read on for more…

Dancing With The Stars is back tonight for the live results, and some rocking performances. According to ABC, tonight we will see:

“Multi-platinum R&B recording artist Mary J. Blige will take the stage for an unforgettable performance singing two songs, “Real Love” and “25/8.” Tuesday night’s “Macy’s Stars of Dance” performance pays tribute the beloved and iconic dance of an entire generation, “The Twist,” in celebration of its 50th year mark, featuring Grammy(r) Award winner, Estelle. Also, pro dancers Val Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd reunite with the Troupe for a special performance themed to “Gone with the Wind,” as a preview to next week’s Movie Scores theme, on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,” TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Since her 1992 debut, “What’s The 411?,” Mary J. Blige has sold over 60 million albums worldwide. Among her many accolades, Blige can claim six multi-platinum albums, nine Grammy Awards, with a staggering 28 nominations, as well as garnering four American Music Awards. Blige is the co-founder of the Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN), whose mission is to empower women from all walks of life to reach their full individual potential. On July 31, 2010, Blige sold over 60 thousand bottles of her “My Life” perfume on the Home Shopping Network. Her perfume was the first to sell over 60,000 bottles in one day on HSN, and $1 from each purchase was donated to FFAWN. This past summer she released her second perfume called “My Life Blossom.” This November she is releasing her highly anticipated new album entitled “My Life II….The Journey Continues (Act 1).” She also has an original song featured in the film “The Help.” On the acting front, Blige will star as a lead in “Rock of Ages,” the Tony-nominated hit Broadway musical due next June, and will begin filming her role as Nina Simone in the autobiographical film this fall.

She may be a born-and-raised West London girl, but Estelle Swaray is right at home in the energy of New York, her newly adopted city. The Homeschool/Atlantic recording artist’s highly anticipated new album, “All of Me,” is heralded by three critically acclaimed singles, “Fall in Love (Feat. Nas),” “Break My Heart (Feat. Rick Ross)” and the recently released “Thank You.” “All of Me” followed the Grammy Award-winning singer’s 2008 U.S. debut, “Shine,” which marked the premiere release from Grammy Award-winner John Legend’s Homeschool Records label, in partnership with Atlantic Records, and was without question one of 2008′s most compelling releases. Executive-produced by Legend and Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO Craig Kallman, the album proved Estelle’s global breakthrough, fuelled in part by the phenomenal hit single, “American Boy (featuring Kanye West).” In addition to hitting #1 in the UK, “American Boy” topped the European Airplay Chart, along with airplay charts in the UK, France, Italy, Belgium, Denmark and Ireland. In the U.S., “American Boy” has been certified two-time platinum by the RIAA for digital sales exceeding 2 million. And in 2009, the track earned Estelle her first-ever Grammy Award, among many other prestigious honors.

By evening’s end, one couple will be eliminated, as determined by a combination of the judges’ scores and viewers’ votes on dances performed on Monday’s performance show. Who among the ten couples will be the third team to leave the ballroom?”
