Tonight is the finale of Dancing With The Stars season 21 and the remaining contestants are Bindi Irwin with Derek Hough, Nick Carter with Sharna Burgess and Alek Skarlatos with Lindsay Arnold. During the finals yesterday, both Bindi and Nick had perfect nights with 60 out of 60 for their scores. Alek wasn't far behind in his scores, but Carlos PenaVega, who was eliminated last night, also had a perfect score. It's clear that America loves Alek. Bindi and Derek killed it as always, but Bindi brought the entire room to tears with her second performance, which was dedicated to her dad. At the end of the routine, pro partner Derek surprised Bindi with a photo of herself and her late father up on the big screen. There was not a dry eye in the ballroom. Alek and Lindsay took Alek's military skills to a new level with dancing on a climbing wall. The judges were truly impressed with the daring moves. As for Nick and Sharna, they brought the Backstreet Boys to his second dance with his song "Larger Than Life." It was very well received and the crowd loved it. As for tonight's big finale, the official synopsis provided by ABC reads: In the two-hour season finale on Tuesday, there will be live dancing and show-stopping performances at the Grove shopping center and in the DWTS ballroom. The night kicks off with a high-energy opening number, featuring a reunion of all 13 of this season’s couples at the Grove. The finale will be filled with performances from Alexander Jean, Andy Grammer, Chaka Khan, Elle King and Nick Carter. Kim Zolciak returns to the ballroom to dance a Samba with Tony Dovolani to “I Dream of Jeannie,” which she was never able to perform, along with encore dances from the eliminated celebrities. The cast of the upcoming “Dancing with the Stars: Live! Dance All Night Tour” will perform a dance to Avicii’s “Broken Arrows” as a sneak peak of the 90-minute show traveling the country this winter. The three finalists will each dance a repeat dance from this season. In the last element of competition, the couples will perform a new routine as part of a “24-Hour Fusion Challenge.” The remaining couples will fuse two contrasting dance styles that they’ve performed this season and they’ll have less than 24 hours to prepare that dance for judges’ points. At the end of the night, the winner of the coveted Mirrorball trophy will be announced! So, who do you think will be the winner?
