Scoop: Coming Up on a New Episode of DANCING WITH THE STARS on ABC - Monday, October 5, 2020 Scoop: Coming Up on a New Episode of DANCING WITH THE STARS on ABC - Monday, October 5, 2020 "Top 13" - After a memorable "Disney Night," 13 celebrity and pro-dancer couples compete for the fourth week live for the 2020 season, MONDAY, OCT. 5 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC. Episodes can be viewed the next day on demand and on Hulu.

The show will start with a comedic PSA cold open, followed by Skai Jackson giving a powerful tribute to her friend and fellow actor Cameron Boyce, as well as AJ McLean walking down memory lane on his Backstreet Boys journey since the beginning.

Live votes (via abc.com, the ABC app and SMS/text) will occur each week only during the live broadcast in the EDT/CDT time zones (but fans in all U.S. time zones may vote within that window). With each subsequent episode, the live vote combined with the judges' scores will be revealed during the broadcast. At the end of the evening, judges will decide which celebrity up for elimination stays in the competition and which celebrity's journey comes to an end.

Vying for America's vote, each couple will dance to a variety of songs including "Rise" by Katy Perry, "Smooth" by Santana featuring Rob Thomas, "Adore You" by Harry Styles and "Crocodile Rock" by Elton John.

The couples (with their dance choices and songs) are as follows:
