'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.

Meanwhile, the songs each of the couples will be doing their “Showdance” routines to is as follows:

  • Ashley Roberts and Pasha Kovalev will dance to ‘Keeping Your Head Up’ by Birdy
  • Faye Tozer and Giovanni Pernice will dance to the musical theatre song ‘Lullaby Of Broadway’
  • Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell will dance to ‘I Bet That You Look Good On The Dance Floor’ by Arctic Monkeys
  • Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton will dance to ‘Land Of A Thousand Dances’ by Jessica Mauboy

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 the former Wanted singer cemented himself as the favourite to win the 2015 series, and it was only week three (!)
  • Jake Wood's Salsa
    YouTube
    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 his partner lifted the choreography from her stint on 'So You Think You Can Dance?'
  • Alesha Dixon's Cha-Cha-Cha
    YoUTube
    When Alesha Dixon performed his show-stopping routine on series five, we were convinced she was about to become the next Beyoncé. Instead, she later became the next Arlene Phillips, replacing the veteran on the panel.
  • Sophie Ellis Bextor's Charleston
    YouTube
    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
    YouTube
    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
    YouTube
    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
    YouTube
    We don't think anyone has ever had as much fun as Lisa and Robin Windsor did performing their Samba on the show in 2012.
  • Caroline Flack's Charleston
    YouTube
    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 sexual 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, but his dancing was pretty good in this too.
  • Matt Di Angelo's Salsa
    Matt went from Dean Wicks to snake hips with his performance of the Salsa in series five in 2007.
