Alyson Hannigan Really Wants to Dance to This Pop Superstar & K-Pop Group on ‘Dancing With the Stars’

Alyson Hannigan slayed the dance floor with a tango to Shakira’s “Can’t Remember to Forget You” featuring Rihanna on Dancing With the Stars‘ Latin Night on Tuesday (Oct. 3), and she’s eager to show off her ballroom moves to more tunes from music superstars.


After the show, during which the actress and pro partner Sasha Farber earned an impressive score of 19 for their week two performance, Hannigan spoke with Billboard‘s Tetris Kelly and shared who’s on her playlist wish list.

Taylor Swift!” the Buffy the Vampire Slayer star declared excitedly and without hesitation, before emphasizing her answer a few more times for good measure. “Taylor Swift! Taylor Swift! I love Taylor Swift!”

“You know who I’d love to dance to?” Farber asked, to which the actress responded, “Taylor Swift?” Alas, the pro opted to keep it on theme for the night. “Becky G!” he shared.

But the Latin Night performances were over, and Hannigan was ready to move on from the genre. “I would love to dance to BLACKPINK!” she added to the confusion of Farber, who didn’t seem familiar with the K-pop superstars.

“BLACKPINK! K-pop!” Kelly informed the pro dancer. “One of the biggest groups! They performed at Coachella!”

“INCREDIBLE!” the actress added of the “How You Like That” singers.

Though there has not yet been word of a BLACKPINK-themed night, Farber’s fellow DWTS pro Peta Murgatroyd let slip to Billboard Tuesday night that a Taylor Swift evening was on its way to the ballroom bash. “We will be having a Taylor Swift week here,” shared Murgatroyd, who has won two seasons of ABC’s long-running dance competition. She is paired with Brady Bunch star Barry Williams this season. (Artem Chigvintsev, another of the show’s pro dancers, had also previously hinted on a podcast that Taylor week was happening.)

DWTS has not yet confirmed or announced a Swift-themed week, but the pop superstar is a vocal fan of the competition, and has performed on the show in the past.

Dancing With the Stars airs on ABC and Disney+ at 8 p.m. ET Tuesdays. It is also available to stream on Hulu.
