Last night, the couples each performed a redemption dance, followed by the eagerly awaited Freestyle routines, which give judges and fans a look into the stars’ personalities and their DWTS journey.

Tonight all three couples will perform one more new routine as part of the traditional 24-Hour Fusion Challenge. The couples will fuse two contrasting dance styles they have already performed this season, with less than 24 hours to prepare their dance for judges’ points.

The viewer votes and judges’ points from May 15 and May 22 will be combined along with the judges’ points from the 24-Hour Fusion Challenge to determine the winner. At the end of the night, either Rashad and Emma, Normani and Val, or David and Lindsay will be holding the Mirror Ball Trophy high. Right now, Rashad Jennings is in the lead, with Normani Kordei a close second and David Ross third. Will it stay that way Tuesday?

We predict it will be Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater first, Normani Kordei and Val Chmerkovskiy second, and David Ross and Lindsay Arnold third – reversing order between Rashad and Normani from our original prediction based on Rashad’s blockbuster Freestyle routine last night. But it’s far from a lock.
