"Episodes 1510 and 1510A" -- After 10 weeks of competitive dancing, all-stars Kelly Monaco and Valentin Chmerkovskiy, Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani and Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough have proven they deserve to be in the finals. But only one couple will be crowned champions of "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars." The three women finalists will have their last chance to impress the judges and viewers on two final nights of competition, Monday, Nov. 26 (8 to 9:01 p.m.), and concluding on the season finale, Tuesday, Nov. 27 (9 until 11 p.m.) on the ABC Television Network.

In the final one-hour performance show on Monday, each of the couples will compete in two dances. All three couples will perform their favorite routine from the season, as well as a super-sized freestyle. For their freestyle, they'll be allowed to add extra performers, incorporating all kinds of lifts and tricks to create an out-of-this-world entertaining routine.

In the two-hour season finale on Tuesday, the excitement will continue with all of this season's eliminated couples returning to the ballroom, performing memorable routines of the season. And in the final element of the competition on Tuesday, the three finalists perform an instant dance routine. They'll be given their music and dance style just minutes before they must perform live to complete the judges' scores. By night's end, one couple will be crowned champions of this all-star season.

Hosted by Emmy Award winner Tom Bergeron ("America's Funniest Home Videos") and Brooke Burke-Charvet ("Dancing with the Stars" season seven champion), the celebrities on 'DWTS" perform choreographed dance routines that are judged by renowned ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
