Dancing With the Stars Semi-Final Songs, Dance Styles

The hosts of the show, Tyra Banks and Alfonso Ribeiro will start the night off, by walking out to “Sweet Lovin,'” by Sigala & Bryn Christopher. From there, each pair will once again compete for votes during the course of the evening. The contestants will have to put even more effort into learning their routines if they want to advance to the finale.

Semi-finals night on DWTS will feature plenty of Paso Dobles and Viennese Waltzes on the first themeless night of the season. For the first round of dances, drag queen Shangela and actor Wayne Brady will perform Paso Doble together with their partners, Gleb Savchenko and Witney Carson respectively. Shangela and Savchenko will dance to “The Edge of Glory” by Lady Gaga, while Brady and Carson will dance in the same style to “Beggin,'” by Måneskin.

TikTok sensation Charli D’Amelio and Mark Ballas will also be performing to “Beggin,’” by Måneskin, as a Viennese Waltz. Oscar-winning CODA superstar Daniel Durant and pro Britt Stewart will also do the Viennese Waltz to “Surprise Yourself,” by Jack Garratt.

Meanwhile, actor Trevor Donovan and Emma Slater will do a Cha Cha routine to “Satisfied,” by Galantis ft. MAX. Lastly, The Bachelorette star Gabby Windey and Val Chmerkovskiy will dance the Waltz to “I’m Kissing You,” by Des’ree.

Songs For the Second Round are Also Revealed

Performed styles will be different for the second set of dances. Just like last week, two couples will have to say goodbye to the ballroom in the Semi-Finals.

In this round, Shangela, and Gleb will perform a Viennese Waltz to “I Have Nothing,” by Whitney Houston. Also performing the Viennese Waltz will be Wayne and Witney to “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World,” by James Brown. In addition, Trevor and Emma will also perform a Viennese Waltz to “Count On Me” by Judah Kelly.

Aside from the Viennese Waltz, various pairs are dancing a Paso Doble. Charli and Mark will perform this style to “Espana Cani,” by Pascual Marquina. Also doing a Paso Doble are Gabby and Val. They will dance to “Malagueña” by Brian Setzer.

Daniel and Britt are differing from the other pairs this week as they prepare to dance a Samba to “Light It Up (Remix),” by Major Lazer ft. Nyla & Fuse ODG. Since the competition is tighter than ever, we cannot wait to see how each pair performs on Monday night.
