The results of last night’s performances on Dancing With The Stars on ABC is on tonight, and we will also get to see performances by Blake Shelton among others. What can we expect on the results show? Read on to find out!

Dancing With The Stars is back tonight with the results show, and we will get to see The Voice’s Blake Shelton perform, along with Susan Boyle and Julianne Hough. Here is the official ABC press release:

On Tuesday, the excitement continues as two-time former “Dancing with the Stars” champion Julianne Hough returns, performing a duet with her “Footloose “co-star Kenny Wormald to their remake of “Holding Out For A Hero.” Hough and Wormald star in the upcoming movie “Footloose,” a new take on the beloved 1984 classical film, directed by Craig Brewer and opening nationwide on October 14. After their duet, they will join Country Music Awards Entertainer of the Year nominee Blake Shelton for an unforgettable performance of the wildly popular song, “Footloose.” One of the UK’s best-selling musical artists, Susan Boyle, graces the stage with a rendition of “Unchained Melody,” a worldwide television network exclusive performance, accompanied by pro dancers Val Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd. Also performing is Raphael Saadiq, bringing the soulful spirit of the ’60s to the ballroom, singing an original version of “Soul Man.” And before we say goodbye to one more couple, Julianne Hough hits dance floor with her brother and “Dancing with the Stars” three-time champion Derek Hough, performing a Jive choreographed by them to “Shake Your Tail Feather,” on “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,” TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Oklahoma-based entertainer Blake Shelton has proven himself to be one of country music’s brightest lights, as one of the genre’s most versatile and accomplished vocalists. His career has unfolded ever since his 2001 debut single, “Austin,” which brought him national attention. This year he has been nominated for 5 Country Music Awards, including their most prestigious honor, Entertainer of the Year. Shelton recently announced his first headlining arena tour, “Well Lit & Amplified Tour 2012,” which kicks off in January. The country superstar’s single, “God Gave Me You,” recently broke the Top 5 and is his fastest rising single to date. The emotionally powerful single is off his new album, “Red River Blue,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Soundscan Top Current Albums chart and Soundscan Top Country Albums chart. Shelton’s infectious multi-week No. 1 hit, “Honey Bee,” is also off his new album and is his first ever digital Platinum single. Shelton holds the record for the fastest-selling digital Platinum single for a male country solo artist. The single held the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Country Chart for four weeks in a row, with over 40 million in audience. No country artist has held this record in almost six years. His star power, world-class voice and irreverent personality have brought him acclaim that has translated well from the world of country music to a wider audience.

As an international artist, Susan Boyle’s global record sales hit a monumental 14 million on the 14th month after her recording career started. With No. 1 albums in five continents, in over 20 countries, her albums have moved the Susan Boyle story far beyond her performance on a British Talent Show. For her devoted listeners, Boyle is constantly determined to find the emotional core of the music with modern classics, both secular and sacred, timeless love songs and twists on pop and rock curiosities. This humble woman from a sleepy and largely forgotten Scottish hamlet has become one of the premiere recording voices of her age. Her second album, “The Gift,” made her the first artist in history to have her first two records debut at No. 1 on both sides of the Atlantic. Now with the global launch of her third album, “Someone to Watch Over Me,” her music continues to touch people all over the world.
