Things are getting spooky in the ballroom! This week, Dancing With the Stars is celebrating the spirit of the season with a fun Halloween-themed night of competition.

The remaining 10 celebs and their pro partners are hitting the dance floor for Villains Night, in which they will honor some of the most iconic, famous baddies in pop culture history!

ET is following along for the entire two-hour spooktacular spectacle, and breaking down all the biggest dance numbers, best scores and most memorable moments from Villains Night.

The fun kicks off on Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC, and you can watch along with ET's live blog, right here!

And the Couple Going Home Is...

6:59 PM:

Now comes the moment of truth!

After all the votes are counted, Tyra reveals the eight couples who will be dancing, for sure, next week.

Eventually, it all comes down to Jeannie & Brandon, as well as Monica & Val -- and now it's time for the judges to vote.

Bruno votes to save Jeannie and Brandon, while Derek votes for Monica and Val, meaning it all comes down to Carrie Ann.

After painful deliberation, Carrie Ann makes the final call and saves Jeannie and Brandon, sending Monica and Val packing.

The pair appeared disappointed but waved goodbye to fans as the show came to a close.

Now it looks like we're down to the Top 9 as the season heats up.

Kaitlyn Goes Dog Hunting

6:48 PM:

Kaitlyn loves dogs. She loves dogs a lot. She rescues dogs and saves them and has two giant dogs herself, as she explains in the pre-taped package before her performance.

So, it's particularly funny that this week she's playing Disney villain Cruella de Vil for her paso doble set to “Disturbia” by Rihanna.

Rocking a frankly amazing Cruella costume, Kaitlyn commands the stage and rules over Artem -- who is decked out like a Dalmatian, and at her beck and call.

"Artem, I want to adopt you," Derek jokes, before praising Kaitlyn for being "so reliable" every week. "It was a great way to end the show."

However, Carrie Ann seems to really not like the dance for some reason -- and she also docks a point for the lift -- while Bruno says he's the "voice of reason." The conflict leads to a wildly diverse set of scores.

Carrie Ann awards a shockingly low 7, while Derek follows that with a 9, and Bruno meet in the middle with an 8, for a total of 24 out of 30.

Skai and Alan Try to Make Up Lost Ground

6:38 PM:

After getting some unfortunate scores last week -- due to some missteps -- Skai and Alan came out this week looking to make their way back from the edge of elimination and back to the top of the leaderboard.

The pair deliver an Argentine Tango set to "Everything I Wanted" by Billie Eilish while also paying tribute to Bride of Chucky.

"Skai, I'm so proud of you. You have actually had the roughest road through this competition this season," Carrie Ann says. "And you came back stronger this week than ever...  The power you exuded in that dance was mesmerizing."

"I know there isn't a bad bone in your body. And not a bad step in that tango!" Bruno declares. "Well done."

The pair earn three 9s for a total of 27 out of 30 -- a remarkable improvement over their score from last week.

Nev and Jenny Get Moody

6:28 PM:

Nev is just full of surprises!

The pair dance a paso doble inspired by Black Swan and, well, it lived up to the high bar that comes naturally when it comes to Swan Lake.

The pair pull off an insane paso doble set to “Swan Lake Remix” by District 78, and the judges just cannot contain their love for the impressive number.

"I loved this piece, and you lived up to the expectation," Derek says.

"There were expectations, and you exceeded them and met them!" Carrie Ann marvels.

So how did this flawless Black Swan number go over in terms of scores? Flawlessly!

The pair earn three 10s for the first perfect score of the season, and it's well-deserved.

Justina and Sasha Set the Stage on Fire

6:20 PM:

Justina honors the famously misunderstood and complex villain Carrie for her dance with Sasha, and the pair deliver on the premise of the Carrie tribute in a big way.

The pair hit the stage for a bloody, fiery, undead prom dance, and served up a wild tango set to a MILCK's cover of "Take Me To Church."

The pair literally set fire to the stage (albeit digital fire) as they perform, and the judges eat it up.

Bruno says she dances "like a woman possessed" and Carrie Ann says she's "one of the best dancers" of the season.

After Tyra throws to a commercial, we learn the judges' scores: 9s from Carrie Ann and Derek and an 8 from Bruno for a total of 26 out of 30.

 

Nelly Is a Nightmare (In a Good Way)

6:07 PM:

For their Argentine tango, Nelly and Daniella honor horror's most iconic killer, Freddy Krueger, with a paso doble set to The Weeknd's "Can't Feel My Face," and it's simply incredible.

Rocking grotesque burn makeup on his face and dancing with a Freddy's iconic blade glove, Nelly delivers that Carrie Ann calls his best dance of the season.

Everything comes together for the pair as Nelly dance-hunts Daniella across the ballroom, all while bringing energy and precision to his performance.

"One thing is for sure, you killed that Argentine tango," Bruno marvels.

"Everything you were doing was so dramatic. There was a sense of urgency. The dynamics, the push, the pull, the hold, the footwork, everything," Carrie Ann says.

After being showered with praise the pair earns three 9s for a total of 27 out of 30.

AJ & Cheryl Go 'Psycho' on Their Tango

5:54 PM:

Cheryl got hurt this week, and the show made a big deal about whether or not she was going to be able to perform.

So, as expected, she's totally able to perform (even though the footage of the accident did make her head injury look pretty scary).

It's a good thing she's OK, too, because the pair deliver a wildly fun tango set to “Psycho” by the Intermezzo Orchestra, in which they paid tribute to the iconic Alfred Hitchcock horror thriller and it is frightening and fantastic in equal measure.

After the judges' feedback, Tyra asks Cheryl how she's doing, and the dancer shares, "I'm actually doing okay. You know, I go in and out a little bit. I think I hurt my rotator cuff more than my neck. But I'm hard-headed, thank god."

For their efforts, the pair earn 9s from Carrie Ann and Bruno and an 8 from Derek for a total of 26 out of 30.

 

 

 

Monica Channels Her Inner Nurse Ratched

5:44 PM:

If you could give 10s for set design, Monica and Val's performance deserves a 15. 

Together they are paying homage to the evil Nurse Ratched, and for their "medical facility" inspired backdrop, they included skeletons, flasks, bottles and a whole lot of red lighting.

The seductive jazz number -- set to “Fever” by Beyonce -- is fun, sultry and fiery, even if the judges haven't fell head-over-heels for it.

While Derek praises the musicality, Bruno and Carrie Ann says that they needed more physicality and that she didn't maintain the character she was supposed to be portraying.

Unfortunately, the duo earned two 7s from Carrie Ann and Bruno and an 8 from Derek for a total of 22 out of 30.

Chrishell is a Magnificent Maleficent

5:30 PM:

Tonight's costumes are more on point than ever.

Chrishell and Gleb are dancing a paso doble to a particularly dark and moody cover of "In the Air Tonight” by VonLichten, and she's decked out in all black (with horns) to play the Mistress of Evil herself, Maleficent.

The dance is incredible, and the costumes even more so. This might be one of the most wonderful moments for story-telling that we've seen this whole season.

"Chrishell, that was cinematic!" Derek marvels.

"It was simple, but executed beautifully," Carrie Ann shares. Powerful, dynamic, amazing."

Meanwhile, Bruno calls it mesmerizing and praises the "very, very strong performance."

As for their scores, the the pair earn two 9s from Carrie Ann and Derek and an 8 from Bruno for a total of 26 out of 30. This marks their highest scores thus far, and their first 9s the whole season.

Now for the Scores

5:24 PM:

Now we get to learn Johnny and Britt's scores!

The pair earn a trio of 9s for a total of 27 out of 30 -- putting them at the top of tonight's leaderboard, for now.

Johnny Goes Full Dracula

5:20 PM:

Johnny Weir is donning a cloak and some fangs for his performance with Britt.

Johnny opened up about why he relates to vampires and how they are unaccepted by society -- and reflected on his own experience with homophobia when he was young and just starting as a figure skater.

As he and Britt hit the stage for a Viennese Waltz set to a cover of "Creep," it's clear he's bringing his life-long passion and determination to the ballroom and embodying the character.

The judges love the performance, and can't help but marvel over how much he accomplished this week.

"You floated through that like a dream. You were a rock star," Carrie Ann shares, while Derek marvels at how well he came back after almost getting kicked off last week.

As for the scores, Tyra teases us with them before throwing to a cliffhanger commercial break.

 

Jeannie Mai, the Cannibal Killer

5:09 PM:

Jeannie and Brandon are the first couple of the night, and they are paying tribute (I guess?) to Hannibal Lecter, Anthony Hopkins' cannibal serial killer from The Silence of the Lambs.

The pair, therefore hit the dance floor for a paso doble set to “Maneater” by Nelly Furtado, and the pair slay the spooky number -- with Jeannie rocking red contacts and a leather muzzle over her mouth.

"You are a man eater, and you absolutely ate up that paso!" Derek exclaims.

Carrie Ann -- decked out like Pennywise the Dancing Clown -- pops a red balloon to make her point and yells, "That was an explosive way to start the show!"

The pair end up earning two 8s from Carrie Ann and Bruno and a 9 from Derek for a total of 25 out of 30.

Queen of Darkness

5:03 PM:

Everyone knew Tyra was going to go all out for her Halloween outfit, and she isn't disappointing.

The host donned an all-black leather ensemble with wing-like cape attachment, and she calls herself the "Cagey Couture Queen of Darkness."

Found Footage Intro

5:01 PM:

It's Halloween night (technically called Villains Night, but same thing) and what better way to kick that off than with a parody of The Blair Witch Project!

Nothing screams "dancing show" like a found footage horror movie featuring Tyra Banks.

Meanwhile, ET spoke with judge Carrie Ann Inaba about what fans can expect from Monday's wickedly wild night of competition, and she revealed that she's planning on dressing up as Pennywise the Dancing Clown from It.

"I wanted to do Black Swan, but it was taken," Inaba shared. "But that's OK, because we are going to be Pennywise."

"We're having so much fun this season. This season, we've upped the game," Inaba said of the impressive costuming fans have seen from the contestants, the judges and host Tyra Banks over the past few weeks. "I've been wearing wigs every week! I just like having a lot of fun."

One couple that may have some trouble this week is AJ McLean and Cheryl Burke. While practicing for Monday's performance, Burke fell and badly hit her head, requiring medical attention.

A source close to production told ET that they aren't sure if the pro dancer will be able to perform tonight, but hopes she will. Only time will tell if the pair make it to the dance floor or if one of the other pros will have to try and step in for Burke last minute.
