Tonight on ABC Dancing With The Stars 2014 continues with an all new Monday November 24, season 19 week 11 called “Season Finale – Part 1,” and we have your weekly recap below. On tonight’s episode the four finalists compete during the 11th week of performances, which feature two rounds of dancing: a judges’ pick and a freestyle routine. Also: Cast members from the film “Annie” will perform; and one couple will be eliminated at the end of the night.

On last week’s episode, five remaining couples advanced to the Semi-Finals and perform two routines during plugged/unplugged. The semi-finalists included Tommy Chong, Bethany Mota, Janel Parrish, Alfonso Ribeiro, and Sadie Robertson who performed two different versions of the same song. In the first round of the competition, the couples performed a Jazz, Quickstep, Samba, Paso Doble or Argentine Tango to an original or “plugged” version of their selected song. In round two of the competition, the couples performed an Argentine Tango, Rumba, or Contemporary routine to an acoustic or “unplugged” version of that same song. Special musical guests will accompany the unplugged performances including singer Christina Grimmie, who performed “Love Runs Out,” Time For Three, performed “Blame,” and YouTube sensation Noah Guthrie, performed his cover of “Problem.” At the end of the night, one couple was eliminated and four couples moved on to the finals. Did you watch the last episode? If you missed it, we have a full and detailed recap right here for you.

On tonight’s episode as per the ABC synopsis, “the four remaining couples will compete in two exciting rounds of dance. In the first round, each couple will take on the “Judges Pick” and perform a dance they previously performed this season that the judges have selected. In the second round, the couples take on the biggest competitive dance of the season, a Freestyle routine featuring special effects, additional dancers and unexpected surprises. The night continues by celebrating the new, contemporary spin on the classic show “Annie,” coming to movie theaters December 19th. “Annie” stars Oscar(R)-winner Jamie Foxx, Cameron Diaz, Rose Byrne, and the youngest performer to ever be nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award(R), Quvenzhané Wallis, as Annie. Talented young dancers will join Wallis to perform a dance to “It’s The Hard-Knock Life,” choreographed by Mandy Moore. Then, at the end of night, one couple will be eliminated based on the previous weeks’ viewer votes combined with the judges’ scores from the previous Monday night.”
