Swifties to the ballroom! Dancing With the Stars returns with a new episode celebrating Taylor Swift on Tuesday (Nov. 21).

More from Billboard

Dancing With the Stars choreographer and lead choreographer of the Taylor Swift The Eras Tour, Mandy Moore, will be in the ballroom as a guest judge.

The pop star will be watching the episode, she revealed during a surprise appearance on the show (via video) last week. “I can’t wait to see Dancing With the Stars celebration of my Eras next week,” she said. “I wish I could be there with you guys, but I’m on tour in Brazil. I will be there in spirit, and I’ll be watching!”

The dance competition show launched its 32nd season on Sept. 26, with a star-studded cast that includes Jason Mraz, Ariana Madix, Alyson Hannigan, and more.

For Tuesday’s Eras-themed episode, the pros will likely perform an opening number to Swift’s music. The remaining six contestants from this season will also perform dance numbers to Swift’s songs, although the songs and dance styles have yet to be announced.
