Olivia Newton-John to make special appearance on DWTS on Grease Night


DANCING with the Stars is back again tonight, with contestants tackling “Grease Night”.

Olivia Jade, Jojo Siwa, Cody Rigsby, and the rest of the cast performed songs from the hit film, with Olivia Newton-John appearing as a guest of honor on this week’s DWTS.

Monday’s show came after Matt James and Brian Austin Greene were eliminated last week, much to the surprise of fans watching at home.

They were sent home on Tuesday, concluding the Disney-themed dance week. 

The hit show’s 30th season premiered on ABC on Monday, September 20, 2021.

Last season, Kaitlyn Bristowe and her partner Artem Chigvintsev won the dance competition while Hannah Brown and her partner Alan Bersten won the year before.
