It would not be a Latin Night on “Dancing with the Stars” without some Santana. The last time there was a Latin week theme it was during Season 14 (March-May 2012). Carlos and the band performed during the opening, at varied commercial breaks, and near the close of the live program in Week 5. Now in April 2013, Week 7 of the competition, Colombian pop/rock singer Juanes was the performance show entertainer. This time one of the couples danced to “Maria Maria” by Santana feat. The Product G&B.
Ingo Rademacher of the daytime soap drama “General Hospital” and his pro dancing partner, Kym Johnson, danced the rumba, a very sexy dance indeed. Instead of dancing to Santana’s recording, it was played live by the Harold Wheeler orchestra, with assistance from their resident vocalists. They were the second couple to go out on the dance floor that night. Before taking their turn, host Tom Bergeron mentioned they would be dancing to the music of Santana. Carlos Santana has performed on their results show in 2010 (Season 11, Week 1). The song “Smooth” was danced by singer Toni Braxton and her partner Alec Mazo in Season 7, Week 1 to the cha-cha-cha.
