Four Couples Compete for the Mirrorball Trophy on DWTS 2019
It all comes down to this as four celebrity and pro-dancer couples return to the ballroom to compete and win the Mirrorball trophy on the 11th and final week of the 2019 season of Dancing with the Stars live, MONDAY NOV 25 8|7c on ABC. Episodes can also be viewed the next day on ABC.com, the ABC app and Hulu.
For this last week of the competition, the opening number will consist of the remaining couples dancing to "Last Dance" by Donna Summer. There will be two rounds of dancing where each couple will do one repeat performance from earlier this season. And in the last element of competition, the couples will perform the most anticipated dance of the season—the fan-favorite freestyle routine.
Mega-superstar Cher will perform her classic "The Beat Goes On," while Pitbull and Ne-Yo performs "3 to Tango" and "Me Quedaré Contigo." In addition, the ballroom and viewing audiences will have a first look at the new season of The Bachelor, and the winner of the American Idol fan vote will be revealed live. Eliminated celebrities from this season will return to the ballroom for a final number.
In addition, the professional dancers that will be participating in "Dancing with the Stars – Live Tour 2020" will dance to "How Do I Know" performed by Ray Chew Live. At the end of the night, there will be an announcement revealing which celebrities will be joining the professional dancers on the nationwide tour.
Vying for America's vote, each couple will dance to a variety of songs including Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire," Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl," Luke Bryan's "Country Girl," Kriss Kross' "Jump" and Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine's "Conga," among others.
This week, the live vote (via abc.com, the ABC app and SMS/text) will be combined with the judges' scores and tabulated in real time, with the bottom two revealed during the broadcast. The live votes will occur each week only during the live broadcast in the EST/CST time zones (but fans in all U.S. time zones may vote within that window). At the end of the night, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba will decide which celebrity up for elimination stays in the competition and which celebrity's journey comes to an end.
The couples are (with their dance choice) the following:
- Country artist Lauren Alaina and Gleb Savchenko (Foxtrot and Freestyle)
- Pop star Ally Brooke and Sasha Farber (Jive and Freestyle)
- "The Bachelorette" Hannah Brown and Alan Bersten (Viennese Waltz and Freestyle)
- Comedian and actor Kel Mitchell and Witney Carson (Jazz and Freestyle)
