Time to reveal two more safe couples. They are... Nicole and Derek, as well as Pamela and Damian. Neither of those are too surprising. Backstage, Jake and Chelsie talk about how they know what it's like to be in the bottom two, and their hearts go out to those who haven't been declared safe yet. Brooke finally gets around to asking Nicole what was up with her breakdown. Nicole says that she was upset with herself and her performance, not the judges. She should have said that last night, to avoid people thinking she was a prima donna.
The Macy's Stars of Dance performance this week features a prima ballerina and some violin duo. This should be... interesting? As much as I like ballroom, I don't know that I tuned in to see ballet. But maybe it won't be traditional ballet. Yeah, definitely not. There is breakdancing and front tucks. And rapping. That's one way to make the arts more accessible. It's different, that's for sure. And watchable.
Sade returns to sing "Sweetest Taboo" while four men dance in a sort of hip-hop/jazz fusion. It's quite good, but Sade has definitely lost her voice. Which is kind of sad, although apparently she's still making a living at performing.
Brooke talks to Kate backstage, who admits that it was the first time she had fun out there. Gee, it only took a month. She also uses her little girl voice to tell Tony that she loves him and is glad he was patient. Gah, she's so gross. She's sent back out and there is a light smattering of applause from the other contestants, which tells you everything you need to know. Then Chad hits on Cheryl some more, and I love him, but it's getting old.
Who else is safe? That would be... Erin and Maks. They look really relieved. They were clearly worried. So it's either going to be Niecy and Louis, Aiden and Edyta, or Kate and Tony. Another fake movie trailer bumper parodies James Bond with "Double O-chocinco" with a quick tag for Pamela Anderson in the sequel as "Jaymes Blonde." I think that just got greenlit by a studio somewhere.
