Who’s ready for the finals on Dancing With The Stars NEXT WEEK?!
JJJ has all the details about the two night event, which kicks off Monday (May 23) on ABC. Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy; Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd; and Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas have one last night of competitive dancing, all leading up to winning that mirrored-ball trophy.
Here’s what’s going down:
All three finalists will each perform two dances – a redemption style dance (jazz, quickstep or salsa), and a freestyle. The couples will dance to the following songs (in alphabetical order):
Ginger Zee & Val Chmerkovskiy
Redemption Style: Contemporary – “Adventure of a Lifetime” by Coldplay
Freestyle – “Orange Colored Sky” by Nat King Cole
Nyle DiMarco & Peta Murgatroyd
Redemption Style: Quickstep – “S.O.B.” by Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats
Freestyle – “The Sound of Silence” by Disturbed
Paige VanZant & Mark Ballas
Redemption Style: Salsa – “Fireball” by Pitbull
Freestyle – “Over the Rainbow” performed by BC Jean
There will be live dancing and show-stopping performances as the night kicks off with a high-energy opening number, featuring a reunion of all 12 of this season’s couples.
The finale will also include performances from Fifth Harmony, Pitbull, who will perform “Messin’ Around,” and Aloe Blacc, performing “Let the Games Begin.” Fleur East will perform “Sax” as Kim Fields and Sasha Farber dance with the “Dancing with the Stars” female pro dancers. Additionally, brothers Maksim and Val Chmerkovskiy will give the fans a sneak peek of the sensational dance show they willbe performing across America over the summer: Maks & Val Live On Tour: Our Way.
Paige, Ginger and Nyle will all perform a new routine as part of a “24-Hour Fusion Challenge.” The remaining couples will fuse two contrasting dance styles, and they’ll have less than 24 hours to prepare that dance for judges’ points.
The votes from May 16 and May 23 will be combined along with the judges’ points from both weeks and the “24-Hour Fusion Challenge” to determine the winner. At the end of the night, a champion will be named, and the winner will be presented with the coveted Mirrorball trophy.
