Time for cross promotion! The Gipsy Kings are here to play a Latinified version of "You've Got a Friend in Me" from Toy Story 3. As they sing, Tony and Cheryl along with Dmitry and Kym (who I thought was Edyta for the first few moments) do a paso doble with colorful capes. Shiny!
DanceCenter! DanceCenter! Jerry Rice, Kenny Mayne, and Len are on hand to analyze the final five. They start with Niecy, and they go for the easy jokes about how she is fat because she eats all the time. I can't blame them; Niecy has made the joke herself a lot. It's disappointing because I admire her stance that she's not there to pull a Kelly Osbourne and lose a ton of weight, and that she wants to show that bigger girls can still dance. But then to go the cheap and easy route of "fat girls love food" is just lame. She's a better comic than that. Anyway, next up is Chad Ochocinco, and they basically just make fun of him for not having a Super Bowl ring like Jerry. Len thinks Nicole is bizarrely talented and they show rehearsal footage of her smelling her armpits. See, if they showed more goofy parts and less crying, I might like Nicole more. DanceCenter has kind of lost its edge. Their biggest jokes were "Niecy eats a lot," "Chad hasn't won a Super Bowl," and "Nicole is goofy"? As Ochocinco would say, "Child, please."
Time for some results. Guess who's moving on to the semifinals? Nicole and Derek. No surprise. And guess who's in the bottom two for the first time? Chad and Cheryl. Chad pouts, probably jokingly.
So now that the season is nearly over, the show is introducing a college dancing championship. Okay. The first school to compete is UC San Diego. We see a clip package introducing the team, and then five couples come out and do a samba. It's okay. The group as a whole looks good but when you look at the individual couples, there is some things missing, and I'm not super impressed with the choreography. What did the judges think? Len was impressed with the staging and patterns, as was Bruno. Carrie Ann tells them to make sure they don't sacrifice passion for technique (and brings up Evan as an example, ouch). The judges score them: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8, and Bruno 8 for a total of 24.
