By Douglas Helm | Published

Swifties have yet another big event to tune into in the coming weeks, as Taylor Swift’s tunes will score the November 21 episode of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. The special episode will see the remaining couples facing off to get one step closer to crowning the season’s winner. The episode is made even more special by the presence of special guest judge Mandy Moore, who has been a choreographer for the hit ABC competition show, along with being the lead choreographer for Swift’s massive The Eras Tour (via Deadline).

You can also participate in online voting in any time zone in the US, including territories and Canada.

The talented remaining celebs that will be competing to the tune of Taylor Swift on Dancing with the Stars will be Xochitl Gomez, Alyson Hannigan, Too Hot to Handle’s Harry Jowsey, The Bachelorette star Charity Lawson, Vanderpump Rules’ Ariana Madix, Jason Mraz, Lele Pons, and Barry Williams. Alfonso Ribeiro and Julianne Hough continue on as co-hosts while Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli, and Derek Hough sit at the judge’s table, along with the aforementioned special guest, Mandy Moore.

Fan favorite MCU actor Xochitl Gomez has been dominating with her dance partner Val Chmerkovskiy, so it’ll be interesting to see if they can take the top spot again in this coming episode.

Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour

While Taylor Swift’s music will be scoring this special night of Dancing with the Stars, the artist herself is having a great year elsewhere. Not only has her The Eras Tour been one of the most successful tours of all time, along with being a major cultural touchstone, but she recently took over the box office with the concert film based on the tour.

The Eras Tour film has busted numerous records and collected $150 million in domestic box office dollars and more than $200 million globally. It’s safe to say that 2023 has definitely been Swift’s year.

Even The NFL Can’t Escape Taylor Swift

The Taylor Swift effect has even brought good fortune to the NFL since Swift started dating Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. Kelce saw a massive uptick in his Instagram followers and a huge increase in jersey sales after news broke of their romance. And, funnily enough, the stats say that Kelce even plays better when Swift is in attendance at his games.

ABC/ESPN Is Set To Win Big With Taylor Swift Fever

The upcoming Taylor Swift Dancing with the Stars episode will surely take advantage of this as well, with the upcoming Chiefs-Eagles game playing on ABC/ESPN the night before. Swift is also an Eagles fan, and Travis Kelce’s brother Jason plays for the Eagles, so the NFL should definitely see a ratings boost if Swift is in attendance. Naturally, Dancing with the Stars probably won’t miss this promotional opportunity, and we’ll likely see some commercials during the game.
