It’s almost here! The Strictly Come Dancing Grand Final is right around the corner, and now we know what the celebs will be bringing in their bid for the coveted Glitterball trophy. 

The remaining three stars will take to the ballroom floor one last time for the live finale on Saturday (16th December) in the hopes of impressing judges, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Beke and Head Judge, Shirley Ballas as well as the viewers at home. 

The trio of dancing couples will have to perform three different routines - A Favourite Dance, a Show Dance and a Judges’ Pick, which was chosen for the couples by the panel. 

The Strictly Come Dancing Grand Final songs and dances: 

Bobby and Dianne:

  • Favourite Dance: Couple’s Choice to This Woman’s Work by Maxwell

  • Show Dance: La La Land Medley

  • Judges’ Pick: Samba to Young Hearts Run Free by Candi Staton

Ellie and Vito:

  • Favourite Dance: American Smooth to Ain’t That A Kick In The Head by Robbie Williams

  • Show Dance: Jennifer Lopez Megamix

  • Judges’ Pick: Paso Doble to Insomnia by 2WEI

Layton and Nikita:

  • Favourite Dance: Argentine Tango to Tattoo by Loreen

  • Show Dance: Friend Like Me by Ne-Yo

The final three were revealed on Sunday (10th December), with tennis pro Annabel Croft narrowly missing out on a place in the last episode. 

Speaking to host Tess Daly shortly after learning of her elimination last weekend, Annabel shared: “It’s been the most life changing and extraordinary experience of my life. I have to congratulate Bobby and Dianne and all the contestants that took part in it. But obviously, it’s been an amazing, magical experience for me.”

Strictly Come Dancing: The Final will air live on Saturday 16th December at 7.00pm, on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
