It’s almost over. This time next week, there will be no Dancing With the Stars All-Stars routines to look forward to. We will have no new dances until next spring. Sniff. But this time next week we'll also have a new champion holding her brand new Mirror Ball trophy. So let's save our tears for later. Now is the time to prepare for the final three dances: two on Monday and one on Tuesday.
Here are ABC's details on Finale Week:
Melissa Rycroft & Tony Dovolani, Samba, Super-Sized Freestyle and Instant Dance
Shawn Johnson & Derek Hough, Quickstep, Super-Sized Freestyle and Instant Dance
Kelly Monaco & Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Paso Doble, Super-Sized Freestyle and Instant Dance
MONDAY, NOVEMBER 26
Monday’s show is only an hour long, from 8 to 9 p.m.
Favorite dances: The final three will perform their favorite routines from the season. The DWTS Instagram account shared details on each dance. For Melissa: "Samba-rific! Melissa & Tony will be dancing their Week 3 Iconic Samba in addition to the free style!” For Kelly: "Holy Paso! Kelly & Val will be dancing their Week 3 Iconic Paso again in addition to the free style!" For Shawn: “Hey Pachuco! Shawn & Derek will dance their Week 3 Iconic Quickstep in addition to the free style! This Quickstep earned them an Encore.”
Super-sized Freestyles: This is new. According to ABC, for these Freestyles, the final three be allowed to add extra performers, incorporating all kinds of lifts and tricks to create an out-of-this-world entertaining routine.
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 27
The finale will air from 9 to 11 p.m.
Eliminated couples return: Yay! We always look forward to seeing the departed couples, performing memorable routines from the season.
Instant Dances: These dances sound particularly instant, because the final three will be given their music and dance style just minutes before they must perform. Usually they already have the dance style, just not the music. This could be very interesting.
New winner: At the end of the night, probably around 10:55 p.m., new Mirror Ball trophy champions will be revealed. Who will win? Which couple do you want to win? Sound off!
