'Dancing With The Stars 2013' finale to feature Kellie Pickler, TLC
"Dancing With The Stars" season 16 champ Kellie Pickler is set to return to the ballroom as just one of the performers featured on the two-part season 17 finale.
The singer will be opening the show on Nov. 25 with her hit song "Little Bit Gypsy." Pickler's performance will be accompanied by pro dancers. Monday's show will also feature the final four couples competing in three rounds of dance.
The remaining couples are Amber Riley and Derek Hough, Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff, Bill Engvall and Emma Slater and Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke. In the first round, each couple will do a "Judges Pick," where they repeat a routine they performed earlier in the season that was picked for them by a judge.
In the second round, the couples will compete in a "Samba relay," where each of the competitors and their partners will dance to a different section of the same song. TLC will accompany the "Samba relay" and perform their hit "No Scrubs."
In the third round the couples will perform a "supersized freestyle," which will feature special effects and additional dancers. At the end of the first night, one couple will be eliminated.
On the second night on Nov. 26, the celebrities and their pro partners will perform new routines as part of a "24 Hour Fusion Challenge." They will fuse two contrasting dance styles to a song chosen for them by their competitors during the Nov. 25 episode. They will have less than 24 hours to prepare a routine incorporating the dance styles for judges' points.
The second night will also have performances by Lady Antebellum, who will perform their new single "Compass," and Enrique Iglesias, who will sing his single "Heart Attack."
The Nov. 26 episode will feature the return of the season 17 cast members who were booted from the ballroom, including Valerie Harper. The actress will dance with her former pro partner, Tristan MacManus, to "What a Wonderful World" performed by singer Colbie Caillat.
Ylvis will also stop by to perform their viral hit "The Fox" and they will be accompanied by a group of pro and celebrity dancers. Earlier in the season, celebrity contestants Bleu, Riley, Osbourne and Brant Daugherty performed a team routine to the song, which earned them 30 extra judges' points.
The first part of the "Dancing With The Stars" finale will air on Nov. 25 at 8 p.m. ET. The second part will air on Nov. 26 at 9 p.m. ET. Who do you think will win? Who will be voted off on Nov. 25? Vote in our poll below.
