Strictly Come Dancing, the U.K. series that inspired Dancing With the Stars in the U.S., sees celebrities paired with professional dancers competing against each other in ballroom dancing. Currently in its 17th season, this season included RuPaul's Drag Race and Everybody's Talking About Jamie star Michelle Visage and One Man, Two Guv'nors and Grease alum Emma Barton.

The quarter final episode was dedicated entirely to musicals. All five remaining contestants danced to showtunes, including a foxtrot to "Consider Yourself" from Oliver!, a samba to "Joyful Joyful" from Sister Act, an American smooth dance to "Gaston" from Beauty and the Beast, a jive to "You Can't Stop the Beat" from Hairspray, and a Charleston to the title song from Thoroughly Modern Millie.

The episode also featured musical guest performances from Menzel and The Bodyguard star and recording artist Beverley Knight, who reprised her rendition of "Memory" from her performance in the 2015 London revival of Cats. Watch Knight sing the Andrew Lloyd Webber-Trevor Nunn ballad below.
