ZENDAYA danced a SAMBA for the judges choice dance to convince the judges and America that she should win season 16 of DANCING WITH THE STARS. After 10 weeks of entertaining, stylized dancing from the remaining four couples, only one couple will be crowned “Dancing with the Stars” Champions. Tonight was their last opportunity to impress the judges and viewers. If you missed the show, we recapped tonight’s show for you and if you want to see how all the couples did go HERE!
Tonight the remaining couples competed in three rounds of dance. In the first round, each couple had to take on a new routine in a dance style that the judges would like to see again. In round two, the couples were challenged to a Cha Cha relay [VIDEO HERE], 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 took on a supersized freestyle [VIDEO HERE] featuring special effects, additional dancers and unexpected surprises.

For the results show on Tuesday, the entire celebrity cast returns, to 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. By the end of the evening the winner of DWTS will be crowned.
