DANCING with the Stars is back again this week, with Janet Jackon the theme of the night.
Tonight’s episode of Dancing with the Stars, airing on November 8, is a tribute to the iconic pop star.
It comes after viewers were shocked last week when fan-favorite JoJo Siwa landed in the bottom two.
Despite almost going home, the pop star survived until next week’s episode of the ABC competition as the judges unanimously decided to save her and send The Miz home.
Earlier in the evening, NBA star Iman Shumpert impressed with a strong Paso Doble to the legendary song, Another One Bites The Dust.
Week 7 of the show saw Iman perform alongside contestants including Olivia Jade, Amanda Kloots, Jimmie Allen, and more.
DWTS airs Monday’s at 8pm ET on ABC.

JOJO SIWA ‘EXCITED’ FOR JANET JACKSON NIGHT
Ahead of Monday night’s Janet Jackson episode, Dancing With the Stars contestant JoJo Siwa said she’s excited to dance to music from a “legend.”
“I’m so excited. Janet’s music has been in my life for a really long time,” she said.
“I think she’s cool. I think she’s a legend and I think her music is so danceable. Obviously, Queen is my No. 1 thing, so I don’t know if it will top Queen Night for me. But somehow every week tops the last, so I have a feeling it will.”
CONTESTANTS WILL DANCE TWICE
On Monday night, this season’s eight remaining couples will dance twice during Janet Jackson Night.
First, they will do solo numbers. They will then participate in a dance-off at the end of the night.
WARNING ISSUED FOR JOJO SIWA
Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba issued a warning for Jojo Siwa ahead of Monday night’s episode of the show.
“Jojo needs to make sure that people can see an evolution, they want to see the growth on this journey,” the judge told Hello!
“…Dancing with the Stars is a special place because it’s about people going outside their comfort zone to try something new.
“This is the heart of the show. You have to put down your walls and let us in.”
