The end is near, and Dancing With The Stars contestants had ONE last chance to show that they are worthy of winning the Mirror Ball Trophy tomorrow night, and they all made the most of it!
The last week of competition was broken into three rounds. First, each team had to do a routine that was handpicked by the judges! In the second round, the couples did a samba relay to TLC's live performance of No Scrubs to tack a couple of extra points to their scores!

Finally, Corbin opened up about his week 6 performance where the two got to geek out to a Game Of Thrones themed routine, and although he received one of the lowest scores of the week, he said it was by far his favorite moment of the season!
Ch-ch-check out the rest of our EXCLUSIVE interview with Corbin (above)!
