The evening will kick off with a sensational opening number, with all season 32 couples making a dazzling return to the stage to “Young Hearts Run Free” by Candi Staton, choreographed by Ray Leeper; as well as jive right into the holiday spirit with a jolly routine set to “Santa Claus Is Comin’ To Town” by Mariah Carey, featuring the song and dance styles of Alfonso Ribeiro, Julianne Hough and surprise guests, and choreographed by pros Britt Stewart and Alan Bersten.

But the excitement doesn’t end there— Jason Mraz takes center stage for a musical performance of “I Feel Like Dancing,” danced to by the talented pros from the DWTS LIVE 2024 Tour and choreographed by Mandy Moore.
