"Episode 1101A & B" - On the Season Premiere of "Dancing with the Stars the Results Show," the first couple of the season will be sent home, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 (8:00-9:00 & 9:00-10:01 p.m., ET). Tuesday's telecast will also feature the show's biggest music premiere yet when guest artists Santana, India.Arie and rock band Daughtry perform. In addition, comedian/"DWTS" alum Adam Carolla returns for more comedy.

This week, music legend Santana is set to perform three songs on the show, his classic Latin song "Oye Como Va" and two from his brand new album in stores today -- entitled Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time -- "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," featuring guest singer India.Arie, and Def Lepperd's classic "Photograph," featuring guest vocalist Chris Daughtry. Rock Band Daughtry will also perform their hit single, "September." "Dancing with the Stars" pros will accompany the acts on the dance floor.

The longest-running, most successful partnership in the history of rock, Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inductees Carlos Santana and Clive Davis, Chief Creative Officer of Sony Music Entertainment, have collaborated on the brand new concept album, Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time, arriving in stores today, September 21 on Arista Records. The album was co-produced by Howard Benson, Matt Serletic, Clive Davis and Carlos Santana. This is the first new studio album by Santana since their trilogy of consecutive blockbuster Arista releases, Supernatural (1999), Shaman (2002) and All That I Am (2005). Santana boasts 20 RIAA gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums (including their first 14 consecutive certifications), 10 Grammy Awards and lifetime sales of more than 90 million albums worldwide.

In addition to Chris Daughtry's guest vocalist role on Santana's performance of "Photograph," his band, Daughtry, will perform their hit single "September," which broke into the Top 3 at Hot AC. Co-written with guitarist Josh Steely, "September" is one of the most personal songs on the platinum album Leave This Town, which draws on Chris' experiences growing up in the North Carolina town of Lasker. Daughtry's second and current album, Leave This Town is the band's second No. 1 album and continues to grow with its multiple hit singles. Released in 2009, Leave This Town reached platinum status on the charts and contains the hit song "No Surprise," which was the band's fourth No. 1 single. Recently Daughtry completed its very successful, first-ever headlining arena tour, performing at over 90 arenas across the U.S., and now they have plans to play for their fans overseas in Asia, Europe and South Africa. Daughtry's self titled debut album, which they released in 2006, went five times platinum globally. The album went on to be named the No. 1 selling album of 2007 by Billboard and scored three No. 1 hits, "It's Not Over," "Home" and "Feels Like Tonight." After the band finishes touring and performing around the globe, they will be taking a break before they start working on their third album.

Hosted by Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke ("Dancing with the Stars" Season 7 champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned Ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
