Dancing with the Stars is celebrating Halloween a few days early this season — on Monday, October 29. For the Halloween episode, each of the nine remaining couples will dance to a Halloween-inspired song. While Argentine actor/singer Juan Pablo Di Pace and Cheryl Burke dance to the Oingo Boingo song “Dead Man’s Party”, 50-year-old retired American gymnast Mary Lou Retton and Sasha Farber perform a Tango to the song “Shame” by Elle King.
“Shame” is the first song on King’s new album and her first released since she’s gone public with her struggles with PTSD. King told Billboard the idea for the mischievous song “Shame” came from her own childhood. She says she was a bad kid, “a bad influence,” and when she recently moved to Los Angeles, she hung out with “an older version of my bad side.” They were fun to party with but as King says, “You just have to know when to go home.” In the song “Shame,” King encourages the listener to give in to little devil sitting on your shoulder who’s telling you “trouble is what you need.” Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 pm on ABC.
