    “Dancing With the Stars” is getting the Taylor Swift treatment next Tuesday, with an entire show dedicated to the Grammy winning singer.

    The show will feature celebrities and their pro partners dancing to some of Swift’s greatest hits, with Eras Tour choreographer Mandy Moore serving as guest judge.

    Speaking to Page Six in the ballroom Tuesday night, some of the remaining contestants teased what fans can expect from their highly anticipated performances.

    We asked Harry Jowsey and Rylee Arnold, who many fans have been “shipping” since premiere night, whether rumors that they may be dressing up as Swift and her new love interest, NFL star Travis Kelce, are true.

    “I hope so! I’m willing and able to shave the beard and get a mustache … we’re ready!” the “Too Hot to Handle” star, 26, exclaimed.

    “He would willingly do that,” added Arnold, 18. “So I think it needs to happen!”

    The two previously attended Swift’s “Eras Tour” movie premiere together in Los Angeles last month.

    When asked which “era” they feel most relates to their life right now, Arnold replied “Lover,” while Jowsey went with his own, made-up-on-the-spot epoch.

    “I don’t know which era I’m in,” he admitted. “It’s the dancing era, if she’s got one of those!”

    As for frontrunner Ariana Madix, she revealed she and Pasha Pashkov will be dancing a rumba to her “favorite” Taylor Swift song, “Cruel Summer.”

    “I’m really into Taylor running up and kissing Travis Kelce,” the “Vanderpump Rules” star, 38, gushed, referencing the couple’s sweet interaction at Swift’s Eras Tour stop in Argentina. “I think it’s the cutest thing ever.”

    Charity Lawson and Artem Chigvintsev played coy on what they’re planning, with the “Bachelorette” alum, 27, simply telling us it’s going to be “not expected.”

    “We’re just going to be doing a dance that not necessarily people would expect to be done to a Taylor song,” Chigvintsev, 41, teased. “I think it’s going to be a little bit surprising … a good twist.”

    Charity Lawson and Artem Chigvintsev teased a “surprising” routine with “a twist.”

    Meanwhile, Alyson Hannigan told us she’s hoping to give out bracelets to the entire “DWTS” audience Tuesday night, as she’s celebrating the fact she even made it to Week Nine of the competition.

    “I don’t have time to personally make them, but I did just order a bunch, so I will be giving those out,” the “American Pie” star, 49, revealed.

    “I need to order a lot more. I have to find out how many people are in the audience and will I be allowed to give them all [out]. So I’m going to maybe, like, chuck them to all the Swifties.”

    Alyson Hannigan and Sasha Farber plan to give out bracelets to Swifties in the ballroom.

    Hannigan’s partner, Sasha Farber, previously choreographed a number when Swift was a guest performer on the dance competition series years ago.

    He marveled over Moore’s impressive resume — which includes “So You Think You Can Dance,” “La La Land” and “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” — ahead of her joining Carrie Ann Inaba, Derek Hough and Bruno Tonioli at the judges’ table next week.

    “Mandy’s amazing! She’s like our mom,” Farber, 39, explained. “She’s so talented and there’s a reason why she is a choreographer for Taylor Swift’s tour.”

    Chigvintsev echoed those sentiments, telling us Moore, 47, is “a genius” at what she does.

    “She is very real and she’s an expert in dance. If you’re talking about so far who we’ve had on the judging panel, she would be the most qualified to [give] corrections,” he explained.

    “She comes from a long, long life experience of being a dancer, a teacher, a choreographer, a director. She literally wore every single hat in the entertainment industry.”

    At the end of Tuesday’s Whitney Houston-themed episode, a special surprise message from Swift played in the ballroom following a brief introduction from co-hosts Julianne Hough and Alfonso Ribeiro.

    “I can’t wait to see ‘Dancing With the Stars’ celebration of my eras next week,” the “Bad Blood” singer, 33, said. “I wish I could be there with you guys but I’m on tour in Brazil, but I will be there in spirit — and I’ll be watching.”

    “Dancing With the Stars” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC and Disney+, with new episodes streaming on Hulu the following day.
