Dancing With the Stars' season 29 finale airs tonight (Monday, Nov. 23) at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Do the hustle on your way to watch Dancing With the Stars 2020 finale online or on ABC. Season 29 of the reality competition show is coming to an end after crowning a winner and bestowing the coveted mirrorball trophy.

The Dancing With the Stars finalists are former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, actress Justina Machado, rapper Nelly and Catfish host Nev Schulman. Season 29's cast was a fascinating one, with the usual former athletes like figure skater Johnny Weir and a few truly out-there selections, like animal rights activist Carole Baskin from Tiger King.

Dancing With the Stars 2020 ushered in big changes to the long-running series. Hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews are no longer part of the show, replaced by Tyra Banks. And there's a new, but familiar face at the judges' table: Derek Hough will take the spot of Len Goodman, who is unable to travel from the UK due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Speaking of restrictions, this season of DWTS was looked very different this edition. There's no audience, backup dancers and band. The judges table is wider, so that they can practice social distancing from each other and from the dancers. 

All of the contestants and pros have been tested multiple times a week. Each couple formed a "pod" and did not come into contact with the other couples. Even the pros who are married to each other had to remain separate. 

Here's everything you need to know to watch Dancing With the Stars 2020 finale online.
