Dancing With the Stars 2015 Recap 11/24/15: Season 21 Finale Night Two "Winner Announced"

Tonight on ABC Dancing With The Stars 2015 airs with an all new Tuesday November 24, season 21 finale night two and we have your weekly recap below. On tonight’s episode, after weeks of competitive dancing, the winner of season 21 of DWTS will be announced.

On the last episode, the finalists competed during the 11th week of performances, which featured two rounds of dances, including a freestyle round with special effects. Also there were performances by Meghan Trainor, Who Is Fancy and Ariana Grande.  By the end of the evening Carlos PenaVega and his professional dancer Witney Carson were sent home.  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, “There will be live dancing and show-stopping performances at the Grove shopping center and in the DWTS ballroom. The night begins with an exhilarating number, featuring a reunion of all 13 of this season’s couples at the Grove, with performances from Alexander Jean, Andy Grammer, Chaka Khan, Elle King and Nick Carter. Eliminated contestant Kim Zolciak returns to the ballroom to dance a Samba with Tony Dovolani to “I Dream of Jeannie,” along with encore dances from the eliminated celebrities. The cast of the upcoming “Dancing with the Stars: Live! Dance All Night Tour” will perform a dance to Avicii’s “Broken Arrows”. Then, the three finalists will each dance a repeat dance from this season. In the last element of competition, the couples will perform a new routine that’ll be part of the “24-Hour Fusion Challenge.” The remaining couples will fuse two contrasting dance styles that they’ve performed this season and they’ll have less than 24 hours to prepare that dance for judges’ points BEFORE the mirrored-ball trophy winner is announced.”
