By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 05/22/2017
Dancing with the Stars' Season 24 finals are finally here, and with the mirrorball trophy at stake, viewers can expect some stiff competition.
On the upcoming Monday, May 22 final performance show from 8-9PM ET/PT on ABC, NFL free agent Rashad Jennings, Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei, and two-time World Series champion David Ross will be tasked with learning two full dances each.
First, the celebrity and professional pairings will each perform a "Redemption Style" dance in which a couple attempts to improve upon a previously-performed routine on the show, either the Viennese waltz or the quickstep.
Normani and partner Val Chmerkovskiy will perform the quickstep to "Check It Out" by Oh the Larceny.
Also for Round 1, David and partner Lindsay Arnold will take the stage with a Viennese waltz routine set to "Let's Hurt Tonight" by OneRepublic.
For Round 2, Dancing with the Stars fans can anticipate the ever-popular "Freestyle Dances." There are no rules for the competing couples in this round, as lifts are approved, styles can be combined or added, and the pro dancers are able to recruit as many performers into their supersized routine as desired.
The freestyle dances are usually a blast to watch, and the choreography, costumes and music selections are catered to fit each celebrity's interests, background, personality or emotional story.
Rashad and Emma will perform to a "Let's Go" and "Uptown Funk" medley from Drumline and Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars.
Normani and Val will dance to "What the World Needs Now is Love" by Andra Day.
David and Lindsay will take the stage to an "It Takes Two" and "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" medley by Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock as well as Ronnie Neuman.
No one will be eliminated at the end of Monday night's show. And then on Tuesday, May 23 from 8:30-11PM ET/PT, ABC will air Dancing with the Stars' jam-packed Season 24 live finale.
The three couples will each perform one last routine as part of the show's "24-Hour Fusion Challenge" on Tuesday's show. Each pair will fuse two contrasting dance styles that they had performed earlier in the season, but in a twist, they have less than 24 hours to prepare the dance for bonus judges' points.
The viewer votes and judges' points fromDancing with the Stars' May 15 and May 22 broadcasts will be combined along with the judges' points from the "24-Hour Fusion Challenge" to determine Season 24's winner. At the end of Tuesday night's show, a new champion will be crowned.
The two-and-a-half hour finale will also feature musical performances by Hailee Steinfeld, OneRepublic and Lady Antebellum.
