‘Dancing with the Stars: Athletes’ finale: Everything you need to know about the May 21 show – start time, dances, songs and how to vote

The “Dancing with the Stars: Athletes” finale airs live on ABC beginning at 7 p.m. CT/8 p.m. ET on Monday, May 21. Only three sports stars are still competing to win the season 26 Mirror Ball: two figure skaters — Tonya Harding and Adam Rippon — and Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman. Each of these athletes will dance twice over the course of the hour-long show: once in tribute to their time on the show and then again in freestyle form. We’ve done some digging and discovered the songs and dance styles for each routine in the show. Scroll down if you want to know these in advance and to learn how to vote for your favorite.

The only viewers who’ll get to vote on the finale are those tuning in live in the Eastern and Central time zones. They can cast their ballots either online at ABC.com or via Facebook. To vote online, you have to be 18 or older; living in the U.S. or Puerto Rico; and registered for a OneID account, which you can do either via Facebook or with email address validation. To vote via Facebook, you must have an account; Canadians can only vote via Facebook.

The winner of this special edition of “DWTS” will be decided based on both this week’s votes and judges scores as well as those votes last week that were made after the May 14 show aired. Who do you think will win?
