'Dancing with the Stars' Season 31: Every song and dance to feature on Prom Night
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Two episodes of 'Dancing with the Stars' season 31 week 5 will be broadcast for fans, and the dance moves and music for the Most Memorable Year and Prom Night events have been made public. Season 31 of 'DWTS', hosted by Alfonso Ribeiro and Tyra Banks, has gotten off to a thrilling start on Disney+.
Following the celebration-themed premiere episode, the program has received praise for its celebrations of Elvis Night, Bond Night, Disney+ Night, and the Most Memorable Year (which aired on Monday). A few celebrities will be eliminated from the competition during 'DWTS' Season 31 week 5's two-night Stars' Stories Week event. The stars talked about their most memorable year on Monday's episode, reliving significant moments that moved fans to tears or laughter. The remaining pairs then reappear on Tuesday night to dance to songs that remind them of their high school proms, with a special emphasis on pop music from the 2000s.
