'Eras Night' on Monday, Oct. 24

The eight remaining celebrities will dance to some of the most popular songs throughout the decades, as "Eras Night" comes to "Dancing with the Stars," live, Monday, Oct. 24(8-10:01 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

Len Goodman returns as head judge for this special night of dancing, which showcases popular music throughout the eras from the 1920s through the 1990s. Each celebrity will perform either a quickstep, rumba, Charleston, jive, tango, foxtrot, samba or jitterbug.

In addition, the celebrities and their pros will be grouped into two teams - Team Past and Team Future - with each performing a dance to celebrate songs and dance styles from previous decades through present day.
