The reality competition show's first live results show on Sept. 23 will honor the actor, who visited a couple times the first season, reports People.

Swayze, who died Monday after a long battle with pancreatic cancer, made a guest appearance to coach friend John O'Hurley on dancing and also showed up for the season's finale.

"He was one of the few people to integrate dance with being an A-list actor," says "Dancing's" executive producer Conrad Green.  "He inspired many people and many of our pros to dance. We want to honor the great moments he's brought to film by getting our dancers to do their interpretation to some music from his films."
