Final 3 dance for the win on season finale of Dancing with the Stars, Nov. 21 and 22

After thrilling performances, wardrobe malfunctions, painful injuries and contentious comments, another whirlwind season of DANCING WITH STARS comes to a star-studded end as celebs Ricki Lake, J.R. Martinez and Rob Kardashian perform for the final time, live on Monday, Nov. 21 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times).

The anticipation builds when the winner is crowned the following evening on the live two-hour season finale, Tuesday, Nov. 22 at 9 p.m. ET on CTV. The three finalists perform their favorite dance of the season and the GRAMMY®-winning trio Lady Antebellum takes the stage for the television debut of “Dancing Away with My Heart.”

After nine weeks of reporting on Season 13, ETALK’s very own DANCING WITH THE STARS guru, Jessi Cruickshank announces her pick for the winner: “I hate to have bias, but I have to go with J.R. He’s funny, charming, inspirational and can out-booty shake any Kardashian!” ETALK’s coverage of DANCING WITH THE STARS continues on Monday, Nov. 21 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV and 6 p.m. ET on E!.

The ballroom pressure is on as talk show host and actress Ricki Lake and partner Derek Hough, veteran and actor J.R. Martinez and partner Karina Smirnoff, and reality star Rob Kardashian and partner Cheryl Burke compete against one another with two dance routines. The first number is a style the couples have not yet performed, then all three contenders will perform the always popular and fan favourite freestyle dances.

Then on the live finale, the two couples with the highest combined fan votes and judges’ scores will 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.

Hosted by Tom Bergeron (AMERICA’S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS) and Brooke Burke-Charvet (DANCING WITH THE STARS Season 7 Champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines judged by renowned Ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.
