Your look at the five biggest and most buzz-worthy stories of the morning.

1. 'DWTS' Season 20 Finale

It started with 12 stars competing for the mirror ball trophy, and tonight, a winner will be named.

The finalists delivered two intense rounds of dance Monday in their bid to emerge as the season 20 champion of "Dancing With the Stars." Army veteran Noah Galloway, 33; actress Rumer Willis, 26; and R5 band member Riker Lynch, 23, each did one ballroom style of dance -- a reprise of a performance they'd done previously on the show -- plus a freestyle routine. At the end of the night, Willis and Lynch were tied for first place with two perfect scores each, followed by Galloway in second place.

2. Then and Now: Elian Gonzalez and Other Top News Makers in 2000, 15 Years Later

Much has changed since Elian Gonzalez first got on a small boat to flee Cuba for America fifteen years ago, including the chances for him to revisit relatives in Miami.

While the landscape of U.S.-Cuba relations have changed dramatically, some of the more surprising situations are ringing true again.

Here is a look at some of the biggest differences and striking similarities between some of today's news stories and their predecessors.

3. Texas Authorities Had Warned About Biker Gang Rivalry Before Gunfight That Left 9 Dead

Texas authorities issued a bulletin to law enforcement agencies earlier this month warning of increasing violence between two rival biker gangs blamed for a shootout outside a restaurant in Waco that left 9 people dead.

The May 1 bulletin, obtained by ABC News affiliate WFAA-TV in Dallas, said there had been skirmishes and talk of war between the Bandidos and Cossacks for months.

The bulletin was issued by the Texas Joint Information Center run by the Texas Department of Public Safety. It said the conflict might stem from Cossacks refusing to pay Bandidos dues for operating in Texas and for wearing the Texas patch on their vests without the Bandidos' approval.

4. Coast Guard: Girl, 10, Drowns in Pool Aboard Cruise Ship

A 10-year-old girl drowned in a swimming pool aboard a Norwegian Cruise Line ship off the Carolinas and the ship immediately sailed to a nearby port in Florida, the U.S. Coast Guard said Monday.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Nate Littlejohn told The Associated Press that the girl drowned Sunday afternoon aboard the Norwegian Gem while it was in Atlantic waters some 75 miles east of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Littlejohn said ship's officials reported the death to the Coast Guard and that the vessel then sailed to Port Canaveral, Florida, arriving about noon Monday. He didn't identify the child or give further details of circumstances surrounding the death.

5. 'The Bachelorette' Recap: Britt and Kaitlyn Meet Their Suitors

The new season of "The Bachelorette" began Monday with its two stars, Britt Nilsson and Kaitlyn Bristowe, meeting their 25 suitors ... and awaiting the results of a vote that will send one of them home.

After becoming acquainted with Britt and Kaitlyn, the men were asked to vote on which bachelorette they’d like to see continue in that role for the remainder of the season. They did so by placing a rose in a ballot box. We won’t learn the results until the second half of the two-night premiere airs tonight.
