‘Dancing with the Stars’ Disney Night will celebrate Disney heroes and villains

According to TV ListingsDancing with the Stars will air two episodes the week of Oct. 11, beginning with “Heroes Night.” Tuesday, Oct. 12, will be “Villains Night.” 

Given the themes of each night, the season 30 celebrities will likely dance to a song sung by a Disney hero one night and a Disney villain the next. This year, contestants have to include two special dance moves provided by Mickey Mouse himself. Contestants must incorporate these moves into their dances. 

‘DWTS’ Disney Night could be the first double elimination of season 30 

Since the Dancing with the Stars finale is slated to air Monday, Nov. 22, two double eliminations have to occur at some point to maintain pace. Without two double eliminations, the finale would feature six celebrities. 

Since Disney Night is airing on two nights, we’re speculating the first double elimination of season 30. Judges could handle the elimination in two ways: one contestant could go home each night, or they could eliminate the bottom two from the competition on Oct. 12. 

‘DWTS’ Season 30 will also feature a ’90s night, according to Sharna Burgess 

Disney Night isn’t the only themed night fans have to look forward to this season. According to Sharna Burgess, who is dancing with boyfriend Brian Austin Green, there will be a ’90s week in season 30. 

“We are looking at ’90s songs for ’90s week,” the DWTS pro said on her Instagram Stories (via Heavy). “Fingers crossed we make it that far. I hope I’m supposed to share that with you. If not, too late.” 

Her post also included a poll for fans to vote on which song she and Green should dance to. “I want to know which one you think is your favorite and you like most,” said Burgess. The ’90s songs she and Green could potentially dance to include “Ms. Fat Booty” by Mos Def, “Let Me Clear My Throat” by DJ Kool, and “No Diggity” by Blackstreet.

Of course, the couple could surprise fans with a dance to a song from Green’s 1996 rap album One Stop Carnival. Fans will have to tune in to see if Burgess and Green make it to ’90s night to see how that plays out.
