“Whitney Houston Night”: The seven “Dancing with the Stars” remaining couples are “Saving All Their Love” for the ballroom floor as they dance to hit songs from one of the bestselling music artists of all time, Whitney Houston.
Making an appearance as guest judge is actor, singer and Whitney Houston superfan Billy Porter. Feel the heat with somebody on Tuesday, Nov. 14 (8-10:01 p.m. EST/PST), simulcasting live across both ABC and Disney+ in local time zones and next day on Hulu.
“The estate of Whitney E. Houston and her family are honored that ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is dedicating an episode of her signature songs for the show,” said Pat Houston, executor of the estate of Whitney E. Houston. “Whitney was a fan of ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ and she would be proud of this recognition.”
