CLEVELAND - Week four of “Dancing with the Stars” marks the return of professional dancer Julianne Hough – and a possible conflict of interest. Hough will not be dancing; instead, she will be judging – and her brother is competing.

Cue the dramatic music.

Hough will fill in for judge Len Goodman, who has other TV judging duties across the pond. While we wait to see how she will score the remaining couples, they have been working on some pretty fast routines this week.

Local actor Brant Daugherty and Peta are rehearsing a Salsa. Brant tweeted, “Last rehearsal before @PetaMurgatroyd and I perform our salsa for you guys tomorrow night!! #DWTS .”

“Glee” actress Amber Riley and Derek have a Derek special: the Tango. Amber is performing with a knee injury this week, which could cost the ambitious Golden Boy some patience and high-scoring choreography. Amber tweeted, “Learned this tango Friday, had to sit it out for a couple of days because of this knee! But I plan in rockin it the best I can tomorrow!!!”

Actress Elizabeth Berkley and Val are working on the Argentine Tango. This couple may have their own crisis outside the show that could impact their performance on the dance floor. Early Monday morning, Val tweeted that his home was burnt down: “Yes.. My house was on fire. I am now homeless #greatnewstocomehometo .” Fortunately, a couple hours later, Val tweeted this update: "My place is fine, I'm good.. Thank you love you see you tomorrow."

Disney star Corbin Bleu and Karina have the Paso Doble, which should be stellar considering this couple’s energy. Corbin tweeted, “Paso Doble is our next dance up! Get ready for some heat! @karina_smirnoff #letskickitupanotch http://instagram.com/p/fHacbssHGs/ .”

Singer Christina Milian and Mark are practicing a Foxtrot. Christina tweeted, “Definitely getting my sweat on today with Mark Ballas for Monday nights show! Hope you "toon" in to watch.... http://fb.me/6uBCIkd8h .” Oh geez, I’m worried about that “toon.” What crazy choreography does Mark have planned this time? Le sigh.

Reality TV star Jack Osbourne and Cheryl have a Salsa. Jack tweeted, “Well Abby from @DanceMoms just crashed @CherylBurke and mines rehearsals. So random but awesome!!! pic.twitter.com/vmN91KaoLh .”

Actress Leah Remini and Tony are touching up a Cha-Cha. Considering how the judges have been swooning over her hip action lately, they could clean up nicely here.

“Jersey Shore” castmate Nicole “Hot Mess” Polizzi and Sasha are working on a Jive. Wasting no time in sucking up, Hot Mess tweeted, “So excited for @juliannehough to be judging tomorrow! She's my girl crush #rawr .” So that's who she was thinking about during those random hookups on "Jersey Shore."

Comedian Bill Engvall and Emma have the Samba. Bill tweeted, “Me and Emma back on the road. Rehearsing where ever we can. Don't forget to vote. Thanks #engvalldwtshttp://say.ly/JGe6U4f .”

TV icon Valerie Harper and Tristan are reportedly rehearsing a Viennese Waltz. Of all the dances for this week, theirs is probably the slowest routine, so it should be quite a busy night.

One couple gets eliminated at the end of Monday night. Heading into week four, Valerie is the lowest-scoring star, but she might survive another week. She has a decades-worth of a fan base and pulls the sympathy vote for fighting terminal cancer. Bill or Leah might have their last dance.

Will viewer votes help Valerie survive another week? Will competitive Derek ignore Amber’s injury and push her past her limits? Will Derek’s sister Julianne skew the voting in his favor – or will sibling rivalry sink him? Will Val's fire scare impact his performance? Will Jack run off with Abby from “Dance Moms?” Will Hot Mess sucking up in tweets pay off, or will the judges stop hiding their disdain for Hot Mess and just start giving her 0’s, no matter how much she improves? The competition continues Monday night at 8 p.m. Eastern on ABC.
