SAN DIEGO, October 25, 2014 – There are tricks and treats planned for fans from “Dancing With The Stars” this Halloween week.

In the treat category, Judge Len Goodman is back and not a minute too soon. The guest judge novelty has worn off. There are no kooky dances, just solid traditional ballroom and Latin styles including the first Paso Dobles of Season 19.

The trick: The first group dances of the season show up Monday. Teams will perform routines to two favorite Halloween party anthems: an old favorite, “Time Warp” from “Rocky Horror Picture Show” from “Team Creep Du Soleil” (Alfonso and Witney, Sadie and Mark, Tommy and Peta, and Antonio and Cheryl); and and a new hit, “Black Widow” by Iggy Azalea, from “Team ItsyBitsey” (Bethany and Derek, Janel and Val, Lea and Artem, and Michael and Emma).

All eight remaining couples will perform to Halloween themed music, although a few of the songs seem like a little bit of a stretch. Someone will go home, and it’s the ultimate indignity to go home with a wacky costume and makeup on. Remember poor Snooki’s zombie face? That’s a frightening thought.

Two Paso Dobles, two Viennese Waltzes, a Rumba, Argentine Tango, Jive, and Quickstep compose the style lineup. No one is dancing a routine obviously in their comfort zone. Michael Waltrip may be in the biggest trouble assigned a Jive.

“Dancing With the Stars” airs Monday night, October 27 at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific Time on the ABC Television Network.
