What time does the Dancing with the Stars Season 24 finale start and how can you watch the finals week competition live streaming online? If you’re not near a television when the two-night finale airs this week, you won’t have to miss a minute of the final moments of the ballroom dance competition. Thanks to ABC, fans can watch the final dances and the big reveal of the DWTS Mirrorball trophy winner live streaming online, on Facebook, or on your iPhone, iPad, or Android mobile device.
Find all the details about the Dancing with the Stars finale below, including the start time for finals week programming, live stream viewing information, voting telephone numbers, and a complete rundown of the dances the three remaining couples will perform during the two-night ballroom dance extravaganza.
All eyes will be on the final couples this week — Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater, Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy, and David Ross and Lindsay Arnold. All three celebrity dancers have a good shot at winning the Mirrorball trophy but there’s potential for a shocking ending to an extremely competitive season.
Who will be named the Dancing with the Stars Season 24 champion?
Although Gold Derby predicted earlier in the season that Olympic gymnast Simone Biles would take home the Mirrorball trophy, she was eliminated from the competition during last week’s semi-finals. Her elimination came as a big surprise to many fans, but it immediately prompted rumors that Fifth Harmony singer Normani Kordei will be declared the winner.

However, TMZ reports that Normani twisted her ankle during rehearsals this week, leaving many fans to wonder if her injury will hamper her performance on Monday night. Or even worse — force her to bow out of the competition.
Before her injury, TV Guide predicted that Normani would win the ballroom dance competition, leaving Rashad Jennings in second place, and MLB star David Ross in third. So far, Normani and Val are still on track to dance on Monday night.
But fans should keep in mind that judges will score Monday night’s dances and Dancing with the Stars fans will be able to vote one more time. If Normani doesn’t do her usual knock-out performance during the finals, there’s a chance she could get edged out by frontrunner Rashad Jennings.

Who will go home on night one of the DWTS finals?
According to ABC, there won’t be an elimination on the first night of the Dancing with the Stars finals. However, all three couples will need votes from fans to help them in their quest to win the Mirrorball trophy that will be awarded on Tuesday night’s season finale.
A previous report from the Inquisitr has a complete list of DWTS Season 24 voting phone numbers and online voting instructions. ABC allows viewers to vote several times, so make sure you jot down the numbers, or vote online, for the celebrity you are rooting for.
