It’s the end of the road, the finale of Dancing with the Stars season 25. Four couples remain and on Monday they will take on two challenging routines in an attempt to win the Mirror Ball Trophy. In addition, Julianne Hough will be back as a guest judge.
For Monday’s finale, the four couples will take on the standard finale rounds. First will be the redemption dances, where the pairs get to redo a style they’ve done earlier in the season (and the judges will decide what those are). Then it’s the Freestyles, the round that makes or breaks a contestant’s Mirror Ball dreams.
Should DWTS Do Another All-Stars Season?>>>
Then on Tuesday the three remaining couples will have two more competitive routines: the 24-hour fusion challenge and an encore of their favorite routines from earlier in the season. There will also be a special live online voting window after the performances during Tuesday’s show to help decide the winner.
For the Redemption dances, Len Goodman assigned a Charleston to Jordan and Lindsay. They did it during Guilty Pleasures Night (the superhero theme) and while it got 9s from Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli, Len hated it and gave it a 7, marking the only time other than the first night that Jordan received anything lower than an 8.
Why Frankie Deserves to Win>>>
Bruno assigned a Paso Doble to Drew and Emma, hoping it will be better than the Action-themed dance from A Night at the Movies that earned 7s from the regular judges (and an absurd 9 from guest judge Shania Twain). And Carroe gave Frankie and Witney the Foxtrot, their very first dance and his lowest score, receiving 6s from Len and Bruno.
Finally, guest judge Julianne Hough assigned a Quickstep to Lindsey and Mark. They originally performed one in week 2 and earned a 21, their lowest score of the season. It was also their only routine all season that didn’t earn an 8 or better from Len.
