Musical performances from Pitbull, Wynonna, PSY and Jessica Sanchez

After 10 weeks of entertaining, stylized dancing from Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff, Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough, Alexandra Raisman and Mark Ballas and Zendaya and Valentin Chmerkovskiy, only one couple will be crowned "Dancing with the Stars" champions. These four remaining couples will have one last opportunity to impress the judges and viewers on Monday, May 20, concluding with the season finale, Tuesday, May 21, on the ABC Television Network.

In the final two-hour performance show on Monday, May 20 (8-10:01 p.m.), the remaining couples will compete in three rounds of dance. In the first round, each couple will take on a new routine in a dance style that the judges would like to see again. In round two, the couples will be challenged to a Cha Cha relay, where each pair dances to a different section of the same song. In the last round - and one of the biggest competitive dances of the season - the couples take on a supersized freestyle featuring special effects, additional dancers and unexpected surprises.

In the two-hour season finale on Tuesday, May 21 (9 p.m.), the entire celebrity cast returns, including Any Dick, Dorothy Hamill, D.L. Hughley, Wynonna Judd, Victor Ortiz, Ingo Rademacher, Sean Lowe and Lisa Vanderpump. The returning stars will perform a show-stopping opening number with the pro and troupe dancers. The show will feature music from Pitbull, who will perform his new single, "Hands Up," and Wynonna will sing "I Want to Know What Love Is."

In addition, PSY will take to the stage with his latest hit, "Gentleman," and Jessica Sanchez will sing her version of Pitbull's "Feel This Moment."

The fourth-place couple will be eliminated within the first hour of the show, and in a final element of the competition, the three remaining couples will perform a new routine in an "Instant Dance"- where they will tackle a style they know, but to music given to them for the first time live on television. This routine will be scored out of 30 and will round out the judges' scores across both nights.
