Dancing With the Stars will devote an entire night to Taylor Swift later this month during the Nov. 21st “A Celebration of Taylor Swift” episode. This season’s six remaining couples will take the dance floor for an evening of hot-stepping to Swift’s music when the Taylor-focused episode airs at 8 p.m. ET; the show will be simulcast live across both ABC and Disney+ in local time zones and the next day on Hulu.
One of the special guests on hand for the show will be Mandy Moore, longtime Dancing With the Stars choreographer and the lead choreographer of Swift’s massive Eras Tour. Moore will serve as a special guest on the episode, with the couples and their dance styles to be announced soon.
Fans can vote during the live simulcast in the Eastern and Central time zones, with online voting available to fans in any time zone in the U.S., its territories and Canada here. Live viewer votes will be combined with the judges’ scores on each episode to determine which couples could be facing elimination.
Billboard broke the news about the Swift night last month, when pro dancer Peta Murgatroyd exclusively revealed the plans to for the Taylor-themed episode. “We will be having a Taylor Swift week here,” Murgatroyd said, before adding, “Am I allowed to say that?”
Pro dancer Artem Chigvintsev had previously hinted at a Swift-themed DWTS night during an episode of The Nikki & Brie Show, in which his celebrity partner, Charity Lawson, revealed that she had wanted to use one of Swift’s songs for a dance, only to have her request rejected.
Swift has some DWTS history, celebrating the release of her 2010 album Speak Now on the show with a performance of “Mine” as well as throwback of her Fearless track “White Horse.”
Swift is the leading finalist with nods in 20 categories at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards. You can watch the BBMAs here, and via Billboard and the BBMA’s social media channels on Nov. 19.
