Reba's back to perform "Consider Me Gone." Damn. I was kind of hoping for "Fancy." I'm a traditionalist that way. Dmitry and Lacey come out to dance. Man, I did not miss Lacey this season. She just, like, overdances. I don't know how to explain it. She's got Ballas disease. Maybe she's used to dancing on stage instead of on television, but her movements and facial expressions are way too big for television cameras. [She's been doing So You Think You Can Dance and this show for several years now, she should have adapted. -- Angel] Also, I think she has toilet paper in her hair. And I don't know who choreographed this routine but it doesn't seem like the moves go with the song at all. Like they don't match the beat. Not my favorite, obviously.
The Design-A-Dance performance will be Melissa Rycroft and Joey Fatone doing the tango to "Rock and Roll All Night." Wow, does that sound like a trainwreck. That introduces a clip package where Melissa interviews people in the studio audience and shows what it's like to be in the audience. It's mildly interesting as far as filler goes. I'd rather see that than another clip package of the celebs going, "I really want to win!"
Who else is safe? Evan and Anna. And who else? Chad and Cheryl! Oh, I hope he does better next week.
Backstage, Brooke talks to the latest safe couples. Derek blames the music for the reason he broke the rules. She asks Evan and Anna if they can stay on top. Evan gives some non-answer honed from his years of skating interviews. Brooke asks Chad about doing the rumba next week and he says they're going to make love on the dance floor. Cheryl actually blushes. Brooke is kind of knocked off her game for a minute and then asks nobody in particular if Monday or Tuesday nights are harder. Anna and Evan try to save her but it's all really awkward because no one can believe that Chad just said he's going to shag Cheryl on national television.
Clip package about how they're all friends! Even Kate! People like her! Really, they do! She texts with Erin. God, I wish they would give us the real story about who gets along and who doesn't. That would be so much more interesting. Who wants to hear that they all get along? BOOO-RIIIIIING!
So who else is safe from this big happy family? Pamela and Damian. Well, the producers are happy that Pam and her boobs are back. So going home will be either Jake and Chelsie, Buzz and Ashly or Kate and Tony. Thus, not a shocking elimination, no matter how it ends up.
