During "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars -- The Results Show" on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 16 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), "Dancing with the Stars" Season 9 champion Donny Osmond returns to the ballroom performing a duet with international recording star Susan Boyle. Their breathtaking duet, "This Is the Moment," will be accompanied by dancers Kym Johnson, Tristan McManus, Anna Trebunskya and Henry Byalikov. "This is The Moment" is from Boyle's new album, "Standing Ovation," which will be released November 13. Boyle has reached international stardom and sold over 18 million albums in the just three years. "Standing Ovation" showcases duets with Michael Crawford and her lifelong idol, Donny Osmond. The release of the album marks the end of a busy period for her; earlier this year she worked on "I Dreamed a Dream: The Susan Boyle Musical," which tells the story of her life, from her youth as a lonely, bullied student to her ascent as a victorious, world famous performer. 

Spanning five decades of entertainment, Donny Osmond has been a singer, actor, triple-threat television series host (talk show, game show and variety show), best-selling author, commercial spokesman, motivational speaker and even a racecar driver. Today Osmond performs at the Flamingo Las Vegas with his sister, Marie. In 2012 "The Donny& Marie Show" was acclaimed by The Las Vegas Review Journal as Best Show and they as Best Performers of Las Vegas. Donny Osmond went on to receive the Best Singer of Las Vegas. Concurrent with his nightly performances at the Flamingo Las Vegas, he hosts two internationally syndicated, daily radio shows for McVay Syndication in a partnership with TeshMedia Group: "The Donny Osmond Radio Show" and "Donny's 8-Track Playback." First the first time, Susan Boyle will be performing in Las Vegas with Donny Osmond during "The Donny & Marie Show" at Flamingo Las Vegas on Wednesday, October 17. 

In Tuesday night's "Macy's Stars of Dance Performance," choreographer Christopher Scott returns to the ballroom, but this time brings with him the Legion of Extraordinary Dancers (LXD). This powerful piece will feature 18-year-old internet sensation Christina Grimmie at the piano singing "Titanium," with Jessica Keller as the lead ballerina. With stuntmen, snow and the LXD, this is a performance you won't want to miss! 

Also adding to the night of spectacular performances, professional dancer Cheryl Burke, along with four outside dancers, will dance to a live performance from Tito Puente Jr., who will showcase a medley of his classics. Before the night's end, one more couple will be eliminated from the competition.

Hosted by Emmy Award winner Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke-Charvet ("Dancing with the Stars" Season Seven Champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned Ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
