What are Kaitlyn Bristowe, Nelly, and the rest of the Dancing with the Stars 29 cast going to perform next? Consider this article your early source for a lot of that.
This week, ABC put out all of the various song selections that you’re going to see the Stars performing to — and it’s fair to say that there’s a lot of variety within this. We’ve got upbeat, fun songs, and then also ones that dictate a slower pace. One of the things that is going to be important entering this episode is getting to see people performing at different speeds and showing off various sides to themselves.

Of these, the Johnny Weir tango may be the most fun — we can already picture it in our head! We also think that Chrishell could be setting herself up for a comeback with her routine — it feels like it’s been long enough since we’ve heard a song from The Greatest Showman where it doesn’t automatically trigger a million different covers of it.
