Dancing with the Stars returns for the fourth week of competition on Monday, April 11 and an exciting night of dancing is in store for fans. Not only is ABC bringing back the popular “Disney Night” theme, singer and former Disney actress Zendaya Coleman will join the show as a guest judge.
Zendaya, 19, was the runner-up in DWTS Season 16 back in 2013, the youngest contestant to compete on the show. Although it would be great to see her perform in the ballroom, fans are excited to see her at the judges’ table on Monday night.

“Disney Night” has been one of the more popular theme weeks during the past few seasons of Dancing with the Stars and it’s the perfect week for Zendaya to join the show as a judge. She starred as Rocky Blue on the Disney sitcom Shake It Up from 2010 to 2013 alongside her co-star Bella Thorne who played CeCe Jones in the series.

Perhaps Zendaya will be the first judge to hold up the “10” paddle on Monday night — the highest score a judge has given out so far this season is an “8.”
On Week 3 (April 4), Mischa Barton was eliminated, leaving 10 celebrities to move on to “Disney Week” next week. There are some great pairings this season, so Zendaya has her work cut out for her when it comes to judging the skills of the celebrities and their pro dance partners.
Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd topped the leaderboard on Week 3 with their Tango to “Verge,” but there was a close second place — Wanya Morris and Lindsay Arnold danced away with a score of 24 for their Waltz.
Who will make it through another week and who will be eliminated on “Disney Night” next week? Watch Dancing with the Stars on Monday, April 11 at 8 p.m. ET to find out.
