Before two couples are eliminated from the show, there will also be a special performance from pro dancers Anna Trebunskaya and Valentin Chmerkovisky, alongside special guests Tiler Peck and Robert Fairchild, principal dancers with the New York Ballet. 

The 4th "Macy's Stars of Dance" performance of the season comes from the amazing cast of Disney's smash new Broadway musical, "Newsies," which is breaking box office records and winning Tony Awards for the best songs and best dancing on Broadway.
