All You Need To Know About The 'Dancing With The Stars' Finals Is Right Here

There are only TWO more days until the Dancing With The Stars finals and JJJ can hardly contain our excitement!

Riker Lynch and Allison Holker, Noah Galloway and Sharna Burgess and Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy will battle it out for the mirrored-ball trophy for the 20th season.

We’ve got the full schedule below, so check out what will air and when:

Dancing with the Stars: Road to the Finals on SATURDAY, MAY 16 @8PM ET/PT on ABC. This one-hour special chronicles the journey of the three remaining couples revealing never-before-seen moments, director’s cut-style commentary on their past dances, and the judges give their expert opinions on what to expect in the two-night grand finale.

Dancing With The Stars: The Finals on MONDAY, MAY 18 @8PM ET/PT. Each couple will have one last night as they vie to win the judges and America’s votes to be crowned the champs. The three finalists will compete in two rounds of dance. In the first round, each couple will repeat a dance from earlier this season. In the second round, in one of the biggest competitive dances of the season, the couples take on a supersized Freestyle dance featuring special effects, additional dancers and unexpected surprises.

Dancing with the Stars: The Finals (Results) on TUESDAY, MAY 19 @9PM ET/PT. The show kicks off with a high-energy opening number featuring a reunion of all 12 of this season’s couples in addition to the judges and hosts. Then, one couple will perform an encore of their Freestyle dance as decided on by the judges. The finale will also feature a performance to “Juicy Wiggle,” by RedFoo and encore performances by Charlotte McKinney and Keo Motsepe to “California Girls,” Suzanne Somers and Tony Dovolani to “Copacabana” featuring six additional dancers, Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson to “Bills,” Chris Soules and Witney Carson to “Footloose,” Willow Shields and Mark Ballas to “Alice’s Theme,” Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough‘s Charleston to “Honey, I’m Good”.

The night will also include a reprise performance from Patti LaBelle and Artem Chigvintsev to “In Da Club,” and the Grammy award winning artist will also perform her hit song “2 Steps Away.”

Additionally, fan favorites from past seasons Amy Purdy, Alfonso Ribeiro and Sadie Robertson return to the ballroom for special performances. Sia will perform her hit song “Elastic Heart” with a special dance performance by Derek and Julianne Hough. The star studded night will continue with a performance by Jason Derulo singing his hit song “Want To Want Me.” In the last element of competition, the couples will perform a new routine as part of a “24 Hour Fusion Challenge.”

The remaining couples will fuse two contrasting dance styles that they’ve performed this season and they’ll have less than 24 hours to prepare that dance for additional judges’ points.

    I only watch DWTS from about week 6 or 7 onwards, when in my opinion, the duds have been voted off. For some time now I’ve wondered what happened to that nice young woman who is upstairs and chats with the couples when they wait for their scores. I can’t stand that blonde who is there now, she has a tinny voice and takes herself ever so seriously. All I can imagine is that she must know somebody important in the show and that is how she got the job. Please replace her with someone more genuine or at least pretend genuine.
