DWTS reveals the songs and dance styles for ’90s Night, which will feature performances from Vanilla Ice, Salt-N-Pepa, En Vogue and Kid ‘N Play.
Dancing with the stars announced the songs and dance styles for the reality show’s first-ever ’90s party, which will pay homage to ’90s music. Only eight couples remain in DWTS season 31while singers Jordin Sparks and Brandon Armstrong were eliminated on Halloween night. DWTS‘ Halloween Night featured a major change in the judges’ standings, as actor Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater found themselves at the top after being in the bottom two the previous week. During the night of the 90s, there will be guest performances from Vanilla Ice, En Vogue and Salt-N-Pepa as the couples perform for a spot in the semi-finals.
What’s New Disney Plus released the songs and dance styles that all the couples will perform to DWTS‘ The night of the 90s. There will also be a double elimination for the first time in DWTS season 31. Two couples will dance Salsa. Trevor and Emma will perform to Aqua’s “Barbie Girl,” and Wayne Brady and Witney Carson will dance to Boyz II Men’s “Motownphilly.” In addition, two couples will dance the Samba, one of the most difficult Latin dances. Gabby Windey and Val Chmerkovskiy, who is back after a week of battling COVID-19, will dance to Ricky Martin’s “Livin’ La Vida Loca,” and Shangela and Gleb Savchenko will dance to the Spice Girls’ “Spice Up Your Life.” After scoring a near-perfect score on Halloween Night, Charli D’Amelio and Mark Ballas will tango to Blur’s “Song 2.” Charli’s mother, Heidi D’Amelio, and her partner Artem Chigvinstev perform a Contemporary to “Ironic” by Alanis Morissette. Daniel Durant and Britt Stewart dance the Jazz on “Enjoy The Silence” by Depeche Mode. Historically low-ranked Vinny Guadagnino and Koko Iwasaki will tango to Haddaway’s “What Is Love.”
DWTS couples will face a double elimination on 90s night
DWTS also revealed that there will be four dance relays, pitting two stars against each other in an effort to earn five bonus points. Trevor and Emma go face Vinny and Koko, dancing the Samba to En Vogue’s “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)”. Shangela and Gleb dance the Cha-Cha against Daniel and Britt to “Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice. Heidi and Artem will face Wayne and Witney in a Samba Relay at Salt-N-Pepa’s “Shoop”. Charli and Mark will perform against Gabby and Val in a salsa relay to Kid ‘N Play’s “Ain’t Gonna Hurt Nobody.”
The dance relays are fairly split between the couples, pitting top scorers Charli and Gabby against each other while putting Trevor and Vinny next to each other, who have been near the bottom of the standings. Each couple has a fair chance of earning bonus points through the DWTS judges. The relays, like the team dancing on Halloween night, could shake the DWTS season 31 contest and affect the result of the double elimination.
The energetic song choices and dance styles for DWTS’90s Night will deliver an exciting episode for viewers. There are only six spots in the semi-finals, so each couple will have to do their best to avoid the upcoming double elimination. The DWTS The ’90s homage will be another suspenseful installment in this memorable season.
Dancing with the stars airs Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on Disney+.
