On Monday, November 22, 2021 from 8-10pm ET/PT, ABC premiered the Season 30 finale of DANCING WITH THE STARS, as 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. All 15 of the show's Season 30 celebrities return to the ballroom to dance an opening number all together, performing to the hit song "Dynamite" by BTS, and choreographed by Tessandra Chavez. Season 30 pro dancers come together to perform a dance to "Pour Some Sugar On Me" by Def Leppard. In addition, the finale features special performances by Melanie C who returns to sing "2 Become 1" by the Spice Girls, and recent CMA Award winner Jimmie Allen also performs his single "Good Times Roll."

For their first-round dances, the finalist couples each combine two styles of dance into one routine for a Fusion Dance. For the second and final round, the couples perform the most anticipated dance of the season -- the fan-favorite Freestyle. Fans of the show can vote during the live broadcast of the show in the EST/CST time zones via abc.com and SMS/text.

The couples (along with their dance styles and songs) are the following:

- Popstar and dancer JoJo Siwa and pro Jenna Johnson will perform a Tango and Cha Cha fusion dance to "I Love It" by Icona Pop feat. Charli XCX; then a freestyle dance to "Born This Way" by Lady Gaga
