'Strictly Come Dancing' Final Songs And Dances Revealed

Each couple will perform three times, in a bid to take home the Glitterball Trophy.

The dances that the four remaining celebrities will be performing in this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ final have been revealed.

In the final, each couple will perform a past routine chosen by the judges and another that they consider their favourites, as well as a ‘Showdance’ that will showcase the skills they’ve learned over the course of the series.

While the couples’ picks are being kept under wraps, the routines that the judges want to see again have been revealed, with bookies’ favourite Stacey Dooley repeating her Foxtrot to ‘Hi Ho Silver Lining’, while Joe Sugg will once again dance the Paso Doble to ‘Pompeii’ by Bastille.

Faye Tozer will be tackling the Viennese Waltz to ‘It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World’ for the second time, while Ashley Roberts - fresh from the bottom two - will be bouncing back with her ‘Dirty Dancing’-inspired Salsa routine, first seen during Movies Week.

As well as the aforementioned couples’ favourite routines, the live final will also feature a performance from all of the eliminated stars from the series, from Susannah Constantine right up to Lauren Steadman.

Find out who will go on to lift the Glitterball Trophy in this year’s ‘Strictly’ final, airing from 6.30pm on BBC One.

Jay McGuiness's Jive
This was the moment that former Wanted singer Jay cemented himself as the favourite to win the 2015 series... and it was only week three (!!!) .
Ore Oduba's Showdance
Before the 2016 final, it looked as though Danny Mac had it in the bag, until Ore and Joanne Clifton came out with this Showdance, which managed to be both heaps of fun and technically impressive.
Jake Wood's Salsa
EastEnders' used car salesman Max Branning turned into an overnight sex symbol with this Samba to Mambo No. 5 in 2014. It was just a pity it later emerged his partner had lifted the choreography from her stint on So You Think You Can Dance?.
Faye Tozer's Jazz
Some Strictly fans were unsure when the BBC announced they were introducing three new routines to the show, one of which was Jazz, but any doubts we had went out the window as soon as Faye and Giovanni Pernice delivered this spooky routine.
Alesha Dixon's Cha-Cha-Cha
When Alesha Dixon performed this show-stopping routine on series five, it was clear she was about to become a big star. She later became the next Arlene Phillips, replacing the veteran on the panel, and released a string of successful tunes post-Strictly.
Debbie McGee's Paso Doble
Reminder: this was Debbie McGee in week one.
Sophie Ellis Bextor's Charleston
The Charleston was a fairly new dance to Strictly when S.E.B took it on in 2013. And despite it only being week two of the competition, she and partner Brendan Cole bagged a whopping 36 points for the routine.
Danny Mac's Samba
Danny and Oti's 2016 routine still makes us come over a bit funny. Let's put it this way - if it was any hotter, it would have been on literal fire.
Abbey Clancy's Waltz
2013 champ Abbey wowed the judges with this beautiful waltz in week one of the competition, and brought it back for the final, where they scored a perfect 40 and lifted the Glitterball Trophy.
Jill Halfpenny's Jive
If you can remember as far back as series two in 2004, you'll no doubt remember this knockout performance from Jill and partner Darren Bennett.
Lisa Riley's Samba
We don't think anyone has ever had as much fun as Lisa and Robin Windsor performing their Samba on the show in 2012.
Caroline Flack's Charleston
Cazza's Turkish interpretation of the Charleston cemented her as the favourite to win in 2014. She also performed the dance again in the final, which eventually saw her crowned winner.
Kara Tointon's Argentine Tango
Given the tension in this performance, it's no wonder Kara and Artem Chigvintsev announced they were an item shortly afterwards.
Louis Smith's Showdance
Not only did Louis Smith capture a lot of attention with his toplessness, his dancing was pretty good in this too.
Alexandra Burke's Jive
Alexandra Burke broke the record for the most "10"s given out during a series of Strictly, and with routines like this, it's not hard to see why.
Matt Di Angelo's Salsa
Matt went from Dean Wicks to snake hips with his performance of the Salsa in series five in 2007.
