The season 29 finale of Dancing With the Stars airs tonight (Monday, November 23) at 8pm ET/PT on ABC. Full TV and streaming details are below, and don't forget that you can tune into all the content and services you use at home, no matter where you are in the world right now - all you need is a good VPN to tango with!

They've outlasted some fierce competition this years, with the likes of Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean, figure skater Johnny Weir, former NFL tight end Vernon Davis, Tiger King star Carole Baskin, and Selling Sunset's Chrishell Stause among those to have left the show. 

A number of them will return to the stage tonight to help support our final four - including the surprise last minute addition of popular former contestant Jeannie Mai, who had to retire from the show due to health issues earlier in the season. We've also got a special greatest hits performance from finalist Nelly to look forward to, plus judge Derek Hough will also dance for the second this season. 

Hough, a professional ballroom dancer and record six-time winner of the show, replaced Strictly's Len Goodman on the show's panel this season as part of a big shake-up that also saw supermodel Tyra Banks take over hosting duties. 

There's still time for one more night of drama, though, so read on as we explain how to watch Dancing With the Stars 2020 season finale online from anywhere today.

Can I watch Dancing With the Stars 2020 online in the UK?

In a word...no. 

Dancing With the Stars is  US-centred show, but ballroom fans will be able to console themselves now the UK equivalent, Strictly Come Dancing, is back. Plus, all the routines from Dancing With the Stars are usually made available on YouTube after they've been broadcast in the US. 

However, anyone in the UK from a country where Dancing With the Stars is aired live can always try utilising a VPN to watch their home coverage from abroad.
