'Dancing With the Stars' Season 29 Episode 7: Who Left Last Week & What to Expect Tonight

Dancing With the Stars goes all-in tonight for Halloween with "Villains Night," during which the 10 remaining celebrities and their professional dancer partners will (according to ABC's press release) "find their inner villain."

The press release also reveals that the show begins with a cold open featuring host Tyra Banks and the judges (Derek Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli) in their costumes for the night and "experiencing their own horror" when the celebrities reveal their villain-themed disguises. Banks will then enter the stage for the live portion of the show to the sounds of the 1980s hit "Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell.
