Season Finale
This 29th season of Dancing With the Stars has been one like none other — one produced and broadcast live during a pandemic, with former winner and dance-pro Derek Hough at the judges' table (Len Goodman wasn't able to travel to the U.S. because of COVID-19), and with Tyra Banks at the helm as host. And now, it all comes to an end, with Justina Machado, Nelly, Kaitlyn Bristowe, and Nev Schulman in the finals and competing for the Mirror Ball trophy. —Gerrad Hall

Shawn Mendes: In Wonder

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

It's hard not to impulsively think "cash grab" before a music doc these days, but let's ease up for a moment. In Shawn Mendes' new documentary In Wonder, the singer-musician, 22, is seen patiently agonizing over how to tell his fans his vocals are shot while on tour. We quickly learn his nearest confidant isn't a posse, but his iPhone's voice recorder as he works through his emotions — voice recordings we actually hear. Opportunistic, you may say. Put the cameras on him. Maybe he'll cry and sell more streams. Behind acclaimed music video director Grant Singer (The Weeknd, Taylor Swift), In Wonder gets Mendes in peak Vlog form: having real conversations with his closest counsel (family, girlfriend Camila Cabello, his manager) as he works through topics like his former TikTok stardom, the origins of his relationship to the Grammy-nominated former Fifth Harmony member, and more. —Omar Sanchez
