Siwa and pro partner Jenna Johnson performed a tango and cha cha fusion dance, which scored a perfect 40 out of 40. They later followed that with a freestyle for another 40 out of 40.
Lastly, Shumpert and pro partner Daniella Karagach performed a cha cha and foxtrot fusion dance, which earned a perfect 40 out of 40. The pair later returned with a freestyle for yet another 40 out of 40.
Host Tyra Banks announced at the end of the night that Kloots landed in fourth place and Rigsby in third, which left Siwa and Shumpert as the two final contestants, with Shumpert ultimately winning the entire season.
