The rough thing about Dancing With The Stars is, week after week, be say goodbye to couples whom we’ve fallen in love. After dancing their best last week, Jonathan Bennett and Allison Holker’s were eliminated (sniff, I am going to miss them) and this week, another couple faces elimination as the number of performances gets upped to two. In Halloween Week, the eight remaining couples participate in their first group competition of the season.
But before they dance together, they need to dance in their celeb-pro pairings.
Bethany Mota and Derek Hough- Paso Doble
Lea Thompson and Artem Chigvintsev- Argentine Tango
Alfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson- Rumba
Janel Parrish and Valentin Chmerkovskiy- Viennese Waltz
Tommy Chong and Peta Murgatroyd- Quickstep
Antonio Sabato Jr. and Cheryl Burke- Viennese Waltz
Sadie Robertson and Mark Ballas- Paso Doble
Michael Waltrip and Emma Slater- Jive
So let’s think about Dancing With The Stars Halloween Night and Halloween songs. There are a few awesome songs that are perfect for this holiday. Would it be strange is Alfonso danced to another Will Smith Song, because Nightmare on My Street is perfect for him.
I would love to see someone dance to John Carpenter’s theme song from Halloween. Yesterday, I had that song on repeat for over an hour; I wonder why I have a headache today?
Halloween by the Misfits
People Are Strange, by the Doors
Somebody’s Watching Me, by Rockwell
Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon
I Put a Spell on You, by “Screamin’” Jay Hawkins
Ghostbusters Ray Parker, Jr. (OMG, this song gets stuck in my head for days on end!)
The Monster Mash Bobby Pickett and the Crypt Keepers
Thriller by Michael Jackson (No pressure if you draw this song. It’s only the greatest song ever.)
Of course, if you take almost any song and change the key, it can start sounding pretty Ooky, Oh let’s not forget the theme songs from The Munsters, The Addams Family and Scooby Doo!!
For the freestyle group dances, the cast has been divided into two teams: #TeamCreepDuSoleil and #TeamItsyBitsy.
The Teams are divided up as follows:
#TeamCreepy dancing to Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show
ALFONSO RIBEIRO (TEAM CAPTAIN) / WITNEY CARSON
TOMMY CHONG / PETA MURGATROYD
SADIE ROBERTSON / MARK BALLAS
ANTONIO SABATO JR / CHERYL BURKE
#TeamItsyBitsy dancing to Black Widow by Iggy Azalea

Len Goodman returns tonight after taking a few weeks to stay in London for the British version of the show, Strictly Come Dancing. Additionally, breakout artist Ella Henderson will perform her hit single Ghost, and Nikki Yanofsky will perform Necessary Evil. At the end of the night, one couple will face elimination. Who do you think will be eliminated?
