LOS ANGELES, Sept. 19 (UPI) -- Ten professional dancers are to perform a tribute to the late U.S. movie star Patrick Swayze on "Dancing with the Stars," ABC said.

Swayze, the star of "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost," died Monday of pancreatic cancer at the age of 57. He had made a guest appearance on "'Dancing with the Stars" in its first season.

In the tribute, the dancers will perform a three-song medley featuring Swayze's "She's Like the Wind," 'Unchained Melody" from the hit film "Ghost" and the classic "Time of My Life" from "Dirty Dancing," ABC said in a news release.

Cheryl Burke, Dimitri Chaplin, Tony Dovolani, Chelsie Hightower, Jonathan Roberts and Anna Trebunskaya, Maksim Chermkovskiy, Anna Demidova, Louis Van Amstel and Edyta Sliwinska are to perform.

Wednesday's edition of the television dance competition series will also feature the elimination of Season 9's first two couples, as well as performances by Sean Kingston and the cast of Broadway's "The Lion King."

This season's celebrity contestants are Aaron Carter, Natalie Coughlin, Mark Dacascos, Tom De Lay, Macy Gray, Ashley Hamilton, Melissa Joan Hart, Kathy Ireland, Michael Irvin, Joanna Krupa, Chuck Liddell, Debi Mazar, Mya, Kelly Osbourne, Donny Osmond and Louie Vito.
