Bruno calls Erin "a hot chick with an attitude" and then curses, I guess, because they bleep it out. Carrie Ann loved the power and the choreography. Really? Len is a traditionalist, like me, and calls it a "funky monkey," and admits that he's confused. It's just like Derek has done multiple times this season -- choreographed a great dance that doesn't have the traditional elements of the dance, and it's too bad that the star gets punished for the pro's decision. Scores: Carrie Ann 10, Len 9, and Bruno 10. Maks takes off his shirt and starts flexing. Well, that's one way to get votes.
Nicole and Derek must be dancing to Prince too, because they're both dressed in purple. Nicole is from Hawaii, and her mother was young when she was born, so they lived with Nicole's grandparents in a small house with fourteen people. Nicole moved to Kentucky at six, and turned to singing because she felt like an outcast, because she looked so different. She was big into the theater program in high school. And after joining the Pussycat Dolls, Nicole was able to buy her mother a house in Hawaii to be with her family. Anyway, they are dancing the cha cha cha to "Kiss," so I was right about the Prince thing. Her solo is basically her giving a lap dance to an empty chair; impressive as an athletic feat, but is it a cha cha? When Derek comes out, they do some cha cha moves, and they are whipping around the dance floor. It ends with Derek smacking Nicole on the ass, and you can see the judges in the background. Bruno loves it and Len is making a schoolmarm face. Uh oh.
