Mark Ballas returned to “Dancing With the Stars” for the show’s 31st season and fans are fairly confident that he will be taking his season partner Charli D’Amelio to the finals.

As the pair get set to dance their hearts on on the Monday, November 14, 2022, episode, Ballas decided to let fans in on a “little secret” about something that goes on behind-the-scenes. The information came during a Q&A that Ballas did on his Instagram Stories ahead of Monday’s episode.

Although the road to the semi-finals doesn’t have a theme, all of the finalists, including Gabby Windey, Shangela, Wayne Brady, Trevor Donovan, and Daniel Durant will perform twice and there will be a double elimination, effectively sending four couples to the semi-finals.

D’Amelio and Ballas will be performing a Viennese Waltz to “Glimpse of Us” by Joji which Ballas has been teasing on Instagram. For their second dance, they will do a Paso Doble to “Espana Cani” by Pascual Marquina.

“Yeah, we’ll let you in on a little secret, cuz it’s hard to see everything in a two minute package when we’ve been in here for, I don’t know, six to 10 hours a day every day,” Ballas added.

“Sometimes they come together in the very last minute,” he explained. “The Tango and the Foxtrot were two of the hardest ones, I think, for us. Like, we were still finishing the Tango on Saturday, which usually you’d like to at least be done by Friday.
