What are the Strictly 2019 week 8 songs and dances?
The routines for the latest episode of Strictly Come Dancing have now been revealed ahead of tonight’s show.
Only eight celebrities remain in the competition now after Viscountess Emma Weymouth was sent home last week.
Tonight’s (Saturday, November 9) show will feature dances to a pop hit from Maroon 5 as well as a classic from Etta James.
This will be the contestants’ last opportunity to shine before the show heads for Blackpool next week.
Here are the songs and dances for Week Eight:

Which of the celebrities will impress the judges remains to be seen when they perform in the episode.
Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli, Shirley Ballas and Motsi Mabuse will all score the celebrities out of ten for their routines.
Then the vote will be opened to the public who will be encouraged to save their favourites.
Whoever receives the least combined scored in both will then be placed in the bottom two in tomorrow night’s dance-off.
According to Coral*, this weekend Mike Bushell is most at risk of facing the cut.
The bookies put Mike Bushell is 2/5 to be eliminated with Chris Ramsey at 4/1.

All will be revealed in the results show tomorrow evening on BBC One.
