In the final one-hour performance show on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET), all three couples will compete against one another with two dances.

The anticipation builds and the competition continues for the two-hour Season Finale on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22 (9:00-11:00 p.m., ET), as the three finalists perform their favorite dance of the season. The two couples with the highest combined fan votes and judges’ scores will then go on to perform the Instant Samba to determine who will reign as champions of “Dancing with the Stars” and take home the coveted mirror ball trophy. Also on Tuesday, each of this season’s 12 couples returns to the dance floor for a special performance.
On Tuesday’s spectacular Season Finale, Lady Antebellum comes to the ballroom for the television debut of “Dancing Away with My Heart” off their new album, “Own the Night,” accompanied by Troupe members Sasha, Teddy, Kiki, Sharna, Dasha and Oksana on the dance floor. They’ll then perform their megahit “Need You Now,” accompanied by “DWTS” pros Kym, Dmitry, Peta and Val. Platinum certified album “Own the Night” debuted at the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart in the U.S. and in Canada this September, becoming the biggest first week debut by a Country artist this year. Its current Top 5 hit, “We Owned the Night,” follows the album’s chart topping lead single, “Just a Kiss.” The trio’s three studio albums have sold over seven million copies across the globe, spawned five No. 1 hits, scored six Grammys and over a dozen other award show trophies. They are currently out on the road headlining the first leg of their Own the Night 2011 Tour, which was recently extended into 2012.
