It's Stevie Wonder night on “Dancing With the Stars!” Week 6's whole program revolved around the music of this Motown legend. “We're so happy to have you here on Stevie Wonder night,” host Tom Bergeron told Mr. Wonder. And good thing too, Stevie joked, lest he had to stay at home to watch it on TV. Stevie, however, did not sing all his songs on the program. That was left in the most capable hands of the Harold Wheeler Band. The musical legend sang live twice - first to open the show (alongside pal and country singer Hunter Hayes, after which Hunter was not heard from in the ballroom again)

He may have a better chance after a group of Wisconsin athletes, politicians and one Milwaukee Bucks mascot banded together for a video urging people to vote for Driver. If the video inspires the entire Packer Nation to vote his way, Driver could win pretty handily, because the winner is based on a combination of judges' scores and fan votes.
