It's Dancing With the Stars finale night, and it all comes down to two more performances for the four finalist teams that have been tearing up the ABC ballroom for all of Season 29. Finalists Kaitlyn Bristowe and Artem Chigvintsev; Justina Machado and Sasha Farber; Nelly and Daniella Karagach; and Nev Schulman and Jenna Johnson will all compete for the Mirrorball Trophy during Monday's live show at 8 p.m. ET, performing two dances before their scores and America's votes are combined to determine the victor.
It was a tough semifinals last week, with partners Skai Jackson and Alan Bersten and Johnny Weir and Britt Stewart being sent home in a shocking double elimination, and fans have strong opinions about which of the remaining teams they believe deserve to win. Keep scrolling to see where the fans are falling on the Final Four teams and learn more about the finale performances.
Kaitlyn and Artem
The former Bachelorette and her pro partner Chigvintsev have plenty of fans on their side, who have stuck with the team through the highs and lows of their emotional season.
kaitlyn has been battling injuries throughout the season, working hard, & improving.💃🏼💪🧡👏 artem's choreography is lovely.🧡👏 this is his first final on @DancingABC.🥺 i hope #TeamWillYouAcceptThisDance wins, bc they deserve it!🙏#DWTS— 🎄 (@azu_rbd) November 21, 2020
I really want #WillYouAcceptThisDance to win the Mirrorball so bad. Kaitlyn is much more then the Bachelorette. That was like 10 years ago. Plus I feel like her freestyle is actually out of her comfort zone vs the other people. #DWTS #dwts29— Becca #TeamWillYouAcceptThisDance (@BeccaLouBaker) November 21, 2020
Nev and Jenna
The Catfish host's impeccable dancing skills throughout the season have also earned him and Johnson a strong fan base going into the finale.
Dancing With The Stars final tonight and I’m nervous because of how competitive the final 3 is but I’m hoping Nev & Jenna wins
I just don’t want a repeat of the season 27 finale where the worst dancer wins again #DWTS— DarkGa ⚔️💜 #StreamChromatica (@DarkGa2) November 23, 2020
Nelly and Daniella
Nelly and Karagach have struggled throughout the season, but earned their first perfect score in the semifinals. The team is a bit of a dark horse going into the finale, but have plenty of people rooting them on.

Justina and Sasha
The One Day at a Time actress and Farber have also been fan-favorites throughout the season, bringing a positive attitude and plenty of flair to their dances, despite a few fumbles.
Y’all need to stop clowning around and vote for Justina to win #DWTS— Jencita (@_Jencita_) November 18, 2020

It wouldn't be a Dancing With the Stars finale without a little extra from the celebrity performers. Not only will each team perform two dances — a repeat performance from earlier in the season to show their growth and a freestyle — there's extra on the way courtesy of Nelly.
The rapper will perform a medley of his greatest hits including "Ride Wit Me," "Lil Bit" and "Hot in Herre" while his pro dancer partner Karagach dances with her husband and fellow DWTS pro, Pasha Pashkov. Judge Derek Hough will also make his way to the ballroom floor for a solo dance to "Let’s Fall in Love for the Night," and a number of the eliminated couples from throughout the season will return to the ballroom.
