After three weeks of intense and hard-core competition, only three couples remain on the reality TV show, Dancing with the Stars: Athletes. Three couples will be eligible to move on to the finals of the show which will air on May 21. 

All 10 of the athletes are set to reunite for a spectacular dance number. As for the three finalist couples, each will perform two dances. The first round will be inspired by their journey on the show, and each couple will perform a jazz, foxtrot or Viennese waltz routine.

The second round will be a no-holds-barred freestyle dance. At the end of the night, based on live viewer votes, the judge's scores, as well as last week's viewer votes, the winning couple will be decided and crowned the champion. The winning couple will get to take home the special Athletes Mirrorball trophy.

Each couple will dance to the following songs: 

Adam Rippon and Jenna Johnson – Jazz – 'Anything You Can Do' from 'Annie Get Your Gun' – The new Broadway cast recording

Josh Norman and Sharna Burgess – Foxtrot – 'Conqueror' by 'Empire' cast, featuring Estelle and Jussie Smollett
