The best thing to watch on Dancing with the Stars: End of season FREESTYLE!

On the first night of the Season 25 Dancing With The Stars finals, Drew Scott was sent home on Monday after delivering his two final dances with pro partner Emma Slater.

Scott, 39, was the first celebrity contestant to kick off the night with his Paso Doble, for which he was awarded a 36/40 by Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and returning guest judge Julianne Hough. When Scott hit the floor for his second number of the night – a freestyle – he wowed judges with his improvements and earned a near perfect score: 39/40.

“If you could recall back to week one, I said if you were a house, you’d be a fixer upper. Well, let me tell you, on that performance, the house is fixed and you’ve become a hot commodity,” Goodman remarked of the Property Brothers star, who the head judge dubbed the “most improved dancer on this show.”

Despite earning solid scores, Scott’s three fellow contestants came out strong and earned higher overall scores: 76/80 for Frankie Muniz, 80/80 for Jordan Fisher and 80/80 for Lindsey Stirling.

After Stirling delivered the final dance of the night, Goodman admitted that he had “no clue” who will take home the Mirrorball Trophy on Tuesday night’s finale.

“This is becoming the war on the floor because I’m so excited about tomorrow evening because I have no clue who’s going to win! It’s just become a fantastic competition,” Goodman said after Stirling performed her freestyle dance.

Upon being eliminated at the end of the show, Scott reflected on his time on the reality dancing competition series. “There’s no way I could have done anything that I did out here without her. And it’s been such a ride. Look at the amazing amazing talent,” said Scott. “I can’t even believe I’m here with these guys. Thanks to the judges and the crew and everybody, you’ve made this a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

Meanwhile, Fifth Harmony and Pitbull turned up the heat with a red-hot performance of their song “Por Favor.” And Julianne Hough hit the stage for an exceptionally emotional special performance.

In a pre-taped package introducing the number, Hough met with famed choreographer Marinda Davis, who she has an immense appreciation for. “She has inspired dancers and choreographers all over the world," Hough shared, before explaining that Davis was “unfortunately was diagnosed with seven auto-immune diseases that left her terminally ill.” Davis channeled her tragic diagnosis and the medical obstacles she's facing into her choreography, and cast Hough to embody her spirit in the routine.

The emotional number was set to “Wouldn't Change Anything” by the band Alexander Jean – made up of DWTS pro Mark Ballas and wife BC Jean – and told a heartbreaking story of Davis' emotional journey.

The Season 25 Dancing with the Stars finale airs tonight on ABC.

Here are the four teams' Freestyle dances.
