After ‘Gangnam Style’ and ‘Great Balls Of Fire’, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ producers had a tough job on their hands choosing a song for Ed Balls’ that would top their previous picks.

However, the songs for this week’s ‘Strictly’ live shows have now been revealed, and they just might have managed it.

This week, Ed and his professional partner Katya Jones will be dancing a Tango to the Rolling Stones staple ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’, with his fellow competitors also performing to a varied range of tracks.

Check out the full list of ‘Strictly’ songs below:

  • Louise Redknapp & Kevin Clifton will be dancing the Waltz to ‘At This Moment’ by Michael Bublé
  • Judge Rinder & Oksana Platero will be dancing the Rumba to ‘Lean On Me’ by Bill Withers
  • Danny Mac & Oti Mabuse will be dancing the Samba to Sergio Mendes’ ‘Magalenha’

  • Ore Oduba & Joanne Clifton will be dancing the Paso Doble to ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’ by Lorde
  • Ed Balls & Katya Jones will be dancing the Tango to ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction’ by The Rolling Stones

On top of this, now that only six couples remain, they’ll also have to prepare a Cha Cha routine in the all-new Cha Cha Challenge.

The contestants will all perform at the same time, being eliminated one by one by the judges, with those who stay on the dance floor the longest racking up the most points.

‘Strictly’ continues on Saturday (26 November) at 7pm on BBC One.
