Disney has announced details on an upcoming episode of “Dancing With The Stars”, which is going to be “Whitney Houston Night” and will see the seven remaining couples “Saving All Their Love” for the ballroom floor as they dance to hit songs from one of the bestselling music artists of all time, Whitney Houston. Making an appearance as a guest judge is actor, singer and Whitney Houston superfan, Billy Porter.
The “Whitney Houston Night” episode will air live on Tuesday 14th November 2023, at 8:00-10:01 p.m. EST/PST, 7:00-9:01 p.m. CST, on both ABC and Disney+ in the US and Canada in local time zones and will be available the next day on Hulu.
Pat Houston, executor of the estate of Whitney E. Houston, said in a statement:
“The estate of Whitney E. Houston and her family are honored that ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is dedicating an episode of her signature songs for the show. Whitney was a fan of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ and she would be proud of this recognition.”
Fans will be able to vote during the live simulcast of the show in the EST/CST time zones. During this time, online voting will be available to fans in any time zone in the U.S., its territories and Canada via dwtsvote.abc.com, and fans with a participating U.S. wireless carrier can also vote via SMS/text (fans in Canada cannot vote via SMS/text). Live viewer votes will be combined with the judges’ scores in each episode to determine which couples may be in jeopardy of elimination.
The couples (along with their dance styles and songs) will be announced at a later date.
“Dancing with the Stars” is the hit series co-hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro and Julianne Hough in which celebrities are paired with trained ballroom dancers to compete in themed choreographed dance routines that are judged by a panel of renowned ballroom experts, including Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Derek Hough. The show is produced in front of a live audience by BBC Studios Los Angeles Productions.
While we wait for this new episode, previous episodes of “Dancing With The Stars” are available to stream now on Disney+ and Hulu in the US.
