dancing with the starsWelcome to the Dancing With the Stars final performances! After weeks and weeks of watching these stars grow into incredible dancers, it's time to decide who's officially earned the right to hold that Mirrorball trophy. It's now or never for these couples to prove their worth and dance their way into ballroom greatness. (No pressure though!)

For the final round of performances, each of the three couples will eventually dance three times in an attempt to secure the winner's title. Tonight, they all were given two routines: one that was chosen for them by the judges, and the other that was a freestyle piece which gave them free reign over everything. But the third dance will present its biggest challenge for each couple since they'll only be given 24 hours to put together a new routine that will be performed on the results show Tuesday night.

To be honest, I get exhausted just thinking about it, but if there's one thing this group of stars has proven to us throughout the course of the season it's that they thrive in a challenge. We saw 10s galore, shimmying, shaking, and a partially shirtless William Levy. All around it was a pretty spectacular night full of equal amounts of talent. America's going to have their work cut out for them this week.

So who among the final three couples will leave the ballroom tomorrow night with a Mirrorball trophy in hand? The answer is less than 24 hours away. For now, check out the scores below (from highest to lowest) and see if you agree with the judges' last ranking scale:

Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas

Paso Doble: "Espana Cani," Erich Kunzel

Score: 30 out of 30

Freestyle: "Sing Sing Sing (With a Swing)," Andrew Sisters

Score: 30 out of 30

Total Score: 60 out of 60

Score: 29 out of 30

Total Score: 59 out of 60

Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd
