Live Dancing with the Stars 2 finale airs Sunday

Dancing with the Stars 2 concludes Sunday night with a two-hour live finale starting at 8 p.m. ET. The three stars remaining are Stacy Keibler, Drew Lachey, and Jerry Rice.

According to ABC, we can expect the following: “the final three couples showcase a new routine in the dance style of their choice to be scored by the judges, [and] all seven of the previously eliminated celebrities will return with their professional dance partners to perform a dance set to some of the most memorable songs.” In addition, ABC says, “Grammy Award-winning R&B music artist Mary J. Blige takes the stage to perform,” which will “add to the excitement.”

It will also “add to the minutes we have to fill to make this a two-hour finale before we actually crown the winner.”
