According to ABC, one celebrity will go home at the end of Monday night’s show, but the three couples who remain will need votes from fans to help push them to a Mirrorball trophy win.
A previous report from the Inquisitr has a complete list of DWTS voting phone numbers and online voting instructions — write them down and make sure to vote during Monday night’s show.

Len Goodman will be back at the judges’ table along with Julianne Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli, but it’s host Tom Bergeron who will have the toughest job on night one of the two-night finale — announcing the name of the couple who will be eliminated at the end of Monday night’s show. The remaining three couples will move on to compete for the coveted Mirrorball trophy at the Grove in L.A. on Tuesday night.
