Tonight's Strictly Come Dancing - week one songs and dances

The Strictly Come Dancing 2019 live shows are HERE and tonight’s first songs and dances have been revealed!


This evening, the 15 Strictly Come Dancing 2019 contestants and their pro partners will hit the dancefloor for the very first time this year.

They’ve had two weeks of intense training following the launch show at the start of the month where the celebs and professionals were partnered up.

But how will they cope dancing live and in front of the judges tonight? We’ll have to wait to find out but for now, but the dances they’ll be performing and the songs they’ll be dancing to have been announced.

This year the celebs are being thrown into the thick of it from the off with some Strictly firsts for the opening weekend…

Strictly 2019’s live shows begin TONIGHT, Saturday evening, September 21 starting at 7PM with a marathon episode lasting over 2 hours.

As always, there will be no results show in the first week with the stars safe from elimination.


However they will still be marked and critiqued by the returning judges – Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood, new judge Motsi Mabuse and head judge Shirley Ballas.

Those marks will carry forward to next weekend where one unlucky celeb will get the boot following the first dance off of the series.
