This season’s remaining four couples will dance and compete in their final two rounds of dances in the live season finale where one will win the coveted Mirrorball Trophy, Monday, Nov. 22 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on ABC.
All 15 of the show’s season 30 celebrities will return to the ballroom to dance an opening number all together, performing to the hit song “Dynamite” by BTS, and choreographed by choreographer Tessandra Chavez. Season 30 pro dancers will come together to perform a dance to “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard. In addition, the finale will feature special performances by Melanie C who will return to sing “2 Become 1” by the Spice Girls, and recent CMA Award winner Jimmie Allen will also perform his single “Good Times Roll.”
For their first-round dances, the finalist couples will each combine two styles of dance into one routine for a Fusion Dance. For the second and final round, the couples will perform the most anticipated dance of the season—the fan-favorite Freestyle.
Fans of DWTS will be able to vote during the live broadcast of the show in the EST/CST time zones via abc.com and SMS/text. (Note: Fans in all U.S. time zones may vote, provided they vote within the live show window.) The live viewer votes will be combined with the judges’ scores to determine the final rankings of season 30 and which finalist couple will become the season 30 Mirrorball Champions.

Derek Hough tested positive for COVID and may not be in the ballroom for the finale
It’s undetermined whether Derek will be in the ballroom for the finale, as he tested positive for a breakthrough case of COVID-19 last Tuesday. At the very least, he could appear on the show remotely from home. However, fans probably won’t learn Derek’s fate until Monday, the day of the show.
