Dancing with the Stars
How did the "DWTS" finalists prepare for their last nights of competition? ABC

The final nights of competition have officially arrived on Season 25 of “Dancing With the Stars,” and soon enough, one team will be handed the Mirrorball trophy and call themselves the official newest champions.

It’s been a hard week of rehearsals for the four teams that made it this far, as they will not only be preparing for four different routines they will perform over the course of the two-night event, including the highly anticipated freestyle rounds, but they have also done so for the final time. How they perform during these dances will truly decide which one of them will be taking home the Mirrorball trophy this time around. One team will say goodbye after the first night of competition comes to an end, while the other three will fight it out to the true finish on the second night.

Here’s how the teams spent the last week rehearsing:

Team Fish Upon A Star

Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold have arguable been the team to try and beat throughout the competition, and are on track to not only potentially win the Mirrorball, but to also walk away with a record number of perfect scores depending on how well they do during the finals. However, it wasn’t lost on either Jordan or Lindsay this week that their fans have played a huge role in their success as well—and they genuinely have them to thank.

Lindsay made sure to also remind fans that no matter how impressive their routines may be, the fans have to be sure to vote if they want to see them be the champions.

However, the two definitely made time to practice as well, especially on their redemption dance, with Jordan sharing a hilarious snap of a rehearsal he and Lindsay shared with head judge Len Goodman, where Len looks horrified by something as Lindsay appears shocked in the background.

Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas have also been front-runners throughout the competition, and she is the last female celebrity standing at this point, which puts added pressure on the two to try and win. Still, they too couldn’t help but reflect on their journey this week, with Lindsey emotionally thanking both the fans and Mark for everything that got them to the finale.

However, while there is certainly pressure for them to win, they also know that at the end, the biggest thing is that they have a good time on the floor and let that show for the fans.

Team Franney Pack

Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson have been surprising dark horse contenders throughout the season, and Frankie knows that they wouldn’t be there without the support of the fans. He made sure to thank them as well while rehearsing with Witney, while also reminding them to vote if they want to see his dream of winning the Mirrorball come true.

Team Hot Property

Drew Scott and Emma Slater know that they need to work hard if they want to truly impress the judges during the finals—as evidence by their determined rehearsals during this past week.

Drew also hinted a potential look at the Freestyle he and Emma are performing, sharing a peek at a photo of himself jumping in the studio.

Meanwhile, Emma took time to make sure to honor her partner, who she felt worked exceptionally hard to get to the place he did in the competition.

The “Dancing With the Stars” Season 25 finale airs tonight at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. The show will continue tomorrow night at 9 p.m. EST.
