With only seven celebrities left, the pressure is growing on "Dancing With The Stars." Monday night's theme is classical music.

"It'll be very prim and proper and old fashioned. It's going to be good," said Peta Murgatroyd.

Last week, Disney kid Roshon Fegan managed to survive by beating Gladys Knight in the dance duel. But Melissa Gilbert could be in trouble. Her average scores were nearly as low as Knight's.

William Levy, Donald Driver and Jaleel White will all be performing the Viennese Waltz on Monday night.

"Jaleel does really well with the ballroom. The foxtrot was that first dance, so it's kind of similar to that, so I think we'll have a really good chance of staying up there," Kym Johnson said.

Menounos and Hough will be putting a classical spin on the Paso Doble, while we'll see an Argentine Tango from both Melissa Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Fegan and Chelsie Hightower.

Classical night should be a no-brainer for Katherine Jenkins, who was on top of the judges' leaderboard last week. Jenkins and Mark Ballas will give us their version of a "classic" Rumba.

"I suppose this is a little bit more what comes naturally to me. This is my comfort zone," Jenkins said. "I don't know how I'm going to dance to classical week, but certainly the music is my thing."

While Jenkins is happy to keep things classy, it's a completely different genre of music that her competitors say would like to see. Murgatroyd said she'd like to see hip hop, while Maria Menounos said she'd like to see Greek week.

"We drink some ouzo, we have some baklava, we smash some plates," she joked.

White said a movie theme week would be "hot," while Cheryl Burke had the most unique theme idea: "No judges week - no miserable judges week, Len Goodman, no grumpy judges week."

Don't miss all the performances on "Dancing With The Stars" starting at 8 p.m. PT on ABC7.
