The Halloween-themed episode airs live, MONDAY, OCT. 25 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

Watch episodes on demand and on Hulu the day following their premieres.

Tyra Banks will walk out to Lil Nas X’s “MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name).” This spooktacular episode will also feature the season’s first performance from judge Derek Hough, who won an Emmy® last month for his choreography on the show.
