Following a surprising "Disney Night" that proved not all dreams can come true, Dancing With the Stars returns Monday night with an episode bound to pull on everyone's heartstrings. The "Top 13" episode will feature an emotional tribute to the late Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce from Skai Jackson, who starred on Disney's Jessie with Boyce. The special night kicks off at 8 p.m. ET live on ABC.
Last week's "Disney Night" episode ended with an elimination, which is rare for a night that usually leaves everyone smiling. Tiger King star Carole Baskin, who earned low scores in each of the first three weeks with pro dancer Pasha Paskov, was eliminated after the judges chose to save Anne Heche and Keo Mostepe. Aside from Heche, the remaining stars are Monica Aldama, Kaitlyn Bruitowe, Vernon Davis, Jackson, Justina Machado, Jeannie Mai, AJ McLean, Jessie Metcalfe, Nelly, Nev Schulman, Chrishell Stause and Johnny Weir.
Season 29 is the first with Tyra Banks as host and Derek Hough as a judge. Hough replaced Len Goodman, who was not able to leave the U.K. due to coronavirus travel restrictions. He is still contributing by explaining the dances in pre-taped packages. Bruno Tonioli and Carre Ann Inaba did return for the season. The dancers are also performing without a studio audience, but ABC added some crowd noise to liven the show up. Scroll on to see what songs the dancers are performing to. At the end of the night, one person will go home.
