By Sarah Huggins | Oct 5th, 2015

Each celebrity will set out to leave a lasting impression with their dances as they commemorate their most memorable year on Dancing with the Stars LIVE on MONDAY, OCTOBER 5 8|7c on ABC. Each couple will dance to a song of the celebrity’s choosing that encompasses a memorable time, or truly incredible experience in their life. These heartfelt performances promise to showcase some of the most exciting choreography and emotionally powerful routines of the season yet. Viewers can expect to see Nick Carter dancing to a Backstreet Boys hit song, Gary Busey paying homage to Buddy Holly, and Bindi Irwin commemorating her father, to name a few. At the end of evening, one couple will be eliminated from the ballroom competition.

On last week's TV Night-themed episode, Alexa and Mark tied with Nick and Sharna for the top score of the night.
