DWTS Finale Teasers And Voting Info, Julianne Hough, PitBull & Fifth Harmony, And More To Perform

Below are two great teasers for the finals of Dancing With The Stars Season 25…..a new promo. Also, Julianne tells us on her surprise (thanks Lori for the heads up). Also, from Disney ABC, you can read some more details on the performances and how voting will take place. This is going to be great. For more dancing info, see the new Who’s Dancing What…and When? post.

In addition, the night will include special performances by Pitbull & Fifth Harmony singing their latest single, “Por Favor,” and Alexander Jean performing “Wouldn’t Change Anything,” featuring a dance by Julianne Hough.

In the two-hour season finale on TUESDAY, NOV. 21 (9:00-11:00 p.m. EST), it will be a Christmas spectacular as the three finalists advance to the final stage of the competition. There will be live dancing and show-stopping performances at both The Grove and in the “Dancing with the Stars” ballroom. The couples will each perform two dances. The first will be a repeat performance of their favorite dance from earlier in the season. And in the last element of competition, the couples will perform a new routine as part of a “24-Hour Fusion Challenge,” in which they will each fuse two contrasting dance styles, and they’ll have less than 24 hours to prepare.

For the first time ever, following the completion of both dances by the three remaining Dance Couples, the public will be allowed to participate in an online-only live vote via ABC.com at http://dwtsvote.abc.go.com/ and Facebook at http://bit.ly/2o1VO7b. The vote limit will be five votes per voting method, and the voting window will be open for approximately five minutes. The live voting window will only be available during the live broadcast in the Eastern and Central time zones, and voters must be physically located in the U.S. or Puerto Rico to vote on ABC.com. Voters in Canada will be able to vote during this same voting window on Facebook only.

The night kicks off with a high-energy opening number, featuring a reunion of all 13 of this season’s couples, at The Grove, Caruso’s award-winning retail, dining and lifestyle destination. Multiplatinum artist Nick Lachey will perform a new, never-before-heard ballad, “Someone to Dance With,” a special track he recorded that was inspired by his journey on “Dancing with the Stars” this season. The song will be available on streaming services everywhere starting Friday, Nov. 17. Additionally, the show will include special performances by Kelsea Ballerini singing “Legends,” from her latest album; Lindsey Stirling featuring Becky G performing “Christmas C’Mon,” from Lindsey’s new holiday album, “Warmer in the Winter”; and Jordan Fisher singing a joyful medley with Debbie Gibson, “Sleigh Ride”/”What Christmas Means to Me.”

There will also be a special performance from the upcoming Dancing with the Stars: Live! Light Up the Night tour, hitting the road this winter, as well as a number inspired by the Walt Disney Animation Studios new “Frozen” short, “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.”

The judges’ points and viewer votes from November 20 will be combined along with the night’s judges’ points and online-only viewer votes from the repeat dances and “24-Hour Fusion Challenge” to determine the winner. At the end of the night at The Grove, a champion will be named, and the winner will be presented with the coveted Mirrorball trophy.

SWIPE to find out the SURPRISE There are certain moments in my career that have made what I do mean so much more than you could ever imagine. This performance and piece that @marinspirations choreographed will forever be one of the most fulfilling and rewarding experiences. Thank you @justinbaldoni for introducing us and being such a selfless angel that makes dreams come true. I feel so lucky that I have had a platform to share my joy and love of dance with all of you, where it all began for me on #DWTS. So when I heard Marinda’s story, saw her work and found out it was a dream for her to have a piece on the show, I was absolutely blown away and HAD to find a way for her to share her gifts. I can’t wait for all of you to feel the same amount of love, gratitude, compassion and LIFE that she gives to me! I’m not going to give too much of her story away now because we want you to tune in on Monday at 8/7C on ABC to celebrate her life and her talents that she so courageously created for all of us! TRUST ME, You won’t want to miss this! Thank you to everyone at @wayfarerla for all the amazing work you do and for connecting us all together! #mylastdays Thank you to everyone at @dancingabc bbc, and abc for being so amazing by embracing this performance and for having a platform for this genius and beautiful soul to inspire and give hope to those that need it .. all through the universal language, DANCE! #alexanderjean #wouldntchangeanything #dance #choreography #love #passion #life #inspire

DWTS Julianne Hough To Executive Produce And Star In Fox Put Pilot ‘One Hit Wendy’

Give it up for Julianne Hough!! According to Variety, Julianne Hough will star in a new Fox comedy called “One Hit Wendy” with a put pilot order. Below are more details….

Julianne Hough is set to star in a single camera comedy with a put pilot order at Fox, Variety has learned.

Hough will star in “One Hit Wendy,” which follows Wendy, a one hit wonder who peaked at 18 as she tries to guide her talented niece, Jordan, through the music industry and keep her from making the same mistakes she did.

Should the project move forward, it would mark the latest series set within the music industry at Fox. The network currently airs “Empire” and “Star,” which are currently in their fourth and second season respectively.

Hough will also serve as an executive producer on the project in addition to starring. The project will be written by Lesley Wake Webster, who will also executive produce. David Katzenberg, Seth Grahame-Smith, and Diane Warren will also executive produce. Katzenberg and Grahame-Smith’s KatzSmith Productions will produce in association with 20th Century Fox Television. The project is the first set up under KatzSmith’s overall deal with 20th TV.

What a perfect part for her. I hope it’s a success. More at Variety. Thanks to Lori for the heads up.

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Sounds like the Hough-Ballas clan has a lot of other stuff going on and the odds of us seeing them ALL together again on the show are slim. Good for them! DWTS won’t last forever and you have to grow up sometime.
