Grammy Award-Winning Country Singer Martina McBride Performs; Tysonia Sichinga, of Carson, CA Featured in Slim-Fast Dance Challenge.

DANCING WITH THE STARS welcomes multi-platinum recording artist Martina McBride, as she takes the stage on DANCING WITH THE STARS THE RESULTS SHOW, Wednesday, October 25 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET). Viewers will be treated to two special performances by Ms. McBride as she sings "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden" from her critically-acclaimed album, "Timeless," and her hit single "This One′s for the Girls."

Martina McBride′s powerhouse voice has earned her more than 16 million in album sales, garnered six No.1 hits and a mantle of honors, including a record-tying four CMA Female Vocalist of the Year trophies. She is nominated again this year. Her fiery, passionate vocals have created such signature hits as "Independence Day," "Wild Angels," "A Broken Wing," "Blessed" and "This One′s for the Girls." These songs, along with hits such as "Concrete Angel," "Love′s The Only House"" and "God's Will," have become not only memorable musical statements, but resounding social commentaries as well. She has placed nearly 20 singles in the top-10. The multi-platinum country star′s 8th studio album, "Timeless," debuted at Number one and was quickly certified platinum.

Wednesday′s featured dances include a passionate routine by our very own Edyta Sliwinska and her partner on and off the stage, Alec Mazo. Also, making his second appearance on the DANCING WITH THE STARS stage, Val Chmerkovskiy hits the floor with his professional dance troupe, which is currently entertaining audiences at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. The judges will also select one standout couple from Tuesday night to perform an encore of their routine, and Tysonia Sichinga will once again be featured in the "Slim-Fast(r) Dance Challenge" segment of the show. This week Tysonia meets the cast of DANCING WITH THE STARS and performs the Paso Dobli on 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, CA.
