Brooke is backstage with the four stars. Evan says that he's relieved to be safe, but he wishes they could all four go to the finals. He's like a Disney character. Nicole says she's grateful to have made it this far. Chad says he's stressed because he has no control over the outcome. Erin won't talk about next week because she's too superstitious.
Let's learn about Cheryl! She grew up in the Bay Area. She was kind of a weird-looking kid. Cheryl was into ballet as a kid, and at first didn't want to get into ballroom because she thought it was for old people. Once she saw a competition, and saw the costumes, she wanted to do ballroom. And her parents were really proud of her. So the new information I got about Cheryl is that she used to do ballet. Thanks, show!
Wait, they're doing the Design-A-Dance tonight? Jeez, this is a jam-packed results show. They have not hyped this Design-A-Dance as much as in the past. I kind of forgot about it until just now. Anyway, it's Joey Fatone and Melissa Rycroft doing a paso doble to "Rock and Roll All Night" by Kiss. I don't like the twist of having two "stars" dance together. Although Melissa is pretty good. Joey is... not. His lack of skill really shows how far this show has come in terms of the stars' talent. He wouldn't even make the finals if he were on this season. Plus, he's kind of fat, and he's wearing a leather suit. Do not want. Well, thank God that's over. The poor guy who designed the costume must be sad that he had to see it on Joey.
Now, the moment that no one has been waiting for -- the second round of the college dance championship! First up are the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. They do the cha cha cha and it's... boring. I hate the college dance competition. I would rather watch the little kids, although I felt bad for them when they got eliminated. The judges compliment them for their skills, given that the team has only been together for a month, but all admit that there were some problems. They earn 21 points.
Hey, now we get to see Utah Valley University! Snore. And as if this is a fair fight -- the other team has been together for a month, and this school has one the national competition four times, and you can actually major in ballroom. So anyway, they're really good. Poor Rutgers. First, they are known (in my household) as the first choice school for AJ Soprano, and now this. Anyway, the judges are basically like, "You're awesome" and they get 29 points.
Time to learn about Anna, who grew up in Russia. She was an adorable little girl, but had asthma due to the poor environment, so her family moved to America. She met Jonathan, and he really helped her come out of her shell personally and in dance. What did I learn? That Anna had asthma. Good to know!
