Charo’s get­ting ch-ch-cheeky about the new sea­son of Danc­ing

de­but­ing tonight. The pint-sized pock­et­ful of fun is paired with pro Keo Mot­sepe for this go-round, but she’s less than pleased about a fel­low con­tes­tant ap­pear­ing on the show.

Heather Mor­ris is most known for star­ring on Fox’s TV mu­si­cal

but be­fore that she com­peted on

and toured with Bey­oncé as a backup dancer. With the other celebs boast­ing am­a­teur skills at best, it’s like Barysh­nikov busting a groove against Bugs Bunny. “That pissed me off,” Charo told

“Be­cause how can I pre­pare with a pro­fes­sional dancer? She’s a pro­fes­sional, beau­ti­ful, trained dancer.”

Nev­er­the­less, the 66-year-old ac­tress and fla­menco gui­tarist plans to cuchi-cuchi like she’s never cuchi-cuchied be­fore.

“I’m a per­former, I love the au­di­ence and I fly with the mu­sic, and you give me the gui­tar and I’m telling you I’m on an­other planet ... So I think this is not fair, but life is not fair. So, what I have to do is move my ass. That’s the only thing.” A cross­over AND a mu­si­cal episode? It’s the stuff of which fan­boys and fan­girls dream. A twopart event will tie and

to­gether once again. Tonight’s episode of air­ing on Show­case and The CW, is ti­tled and in­tro­duces a new vil­lain in Na­tional City — The Mu­sic Meis­ter, played by a dap­per Darren Criss, who causes his vic­tims to break into song. Su­per­girl (Melissa Benoist), will try to fend him off.

Most of the mu­si­cal mey­hem will hap­pen to­mor­row night on

episode air­ing on CTV Two and The CW. The Mu­sic Meis­ter will turn his ne­far­i­ous gaze on Barry (Grant Gustin). He’ll send both Barry and Su­per­girl into an al­ter­nate re­al­ity in which the only way out is to sing and dance, which sounds like the most fun es­cape plan ever.

In one stand­out scene, we’ll see an elab­o­rate dance num­ber set in a ’40s night­club, with the char­ac­ters per­form­ing Jackie DeShan­non’s

In­ci­den­tally, Criss pre­vi­ously starred with Benoist and Gustin on

The other char­ac­ters who’ll sing dur­ing the event are Jesse L. Martin (Joe), Vic­tor Gar­ber (Dr. Stein), John Bar­row­man (Mal­colm Mer­lyn), Jeremy Jor­dan (Winn), and Car­los Valdes (Cisco).

Mo mo prob­lems. The de­tec­tive de­tect­ing things in the early 20th cen­tury will find him­self and his fel­low po­lice of­fi­cers at the cen­tre of a con­tro­versy af­ter a bur­lesque dancer asks for help. Dan­ger abounds, with a cliffhanger-end­ing wrap­ping up Sea­son 10. A fresh run of episodes will be­gin this fall on CBC.
