The battle for the mirroball trophy comes to an end tonight!

Dancing With the Stars' season 16's final performance show is shaping up to be its most competitive ever if our interviews with the final four contestants, Aly Raisman, Kellie Pickler, Jacoby Jones and Zendaya Coleman are any indication!

We caught up with the celebs and their professional dancer partners during a break from rehearsals for the finale, during which they offered up messages to their fellow competitors. Some are funny, some are sincere and some are kind of scary!

Derek Hough: "Do you understand what you've gotten yourselves into? Do you realize that people will get hurt?" Derek asked while he and partner Kellie strike an intimidating pose. "You'll be dropping like flies and we'll be there to clean it up," he later warned before laughing.

Val Chmerkovskiy: Zendaya's partner's message started off sweet as he wished Derek a happy birthday, before adding, "Hopefully your birthday wish isn't to win Dancing With the Stars!"

Derek must be toast 'cause he just got burned!

Dancing With the Stars' finale kicks tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC.
