Ashley and her partner Pasha Kovalev will perform a Couples' Choice Contemporary Number to Unsteady – Erich Lee's Gravity Remix by X Ambassadors.
Ashley was incredibly emotional as she spoke about her father.
"The story about the dance is loss – I lost my dad earlier this year," the Pussycat Dolls singer explained. "My dad and I connected to music and performing.
"So to have this show come at this time – I just feel that it's a gift in so many ways … I know that's with me, and that means a lot."

"The past 3.5 weeks I've been in a state of shock, confusion, questioning, pain so deep in my guts it's been hard to come up for air I'm supposed to do all of this? "
She went on: "For now, I'm here with this pain – Inviting it ALL in. To teach me, to heal me, to rebuild me.
I understand and my heart goes out to you. "
