The other three stars are backstage with Brooke. Brandy says that she's nervous about her fate but accepts it. Bristol has clearly had some media training because she answers one part of Brooke's question ("Why should you be in the finals over others who've scored higher?") without repeating the part about how she deserves it more. She says that she's the only non-performer on the show. Kyle jokes about how nerve-wracking it is to sit backstage and see other people pronounced safe.
It's the Design-A-Dance! Derek and Cheryl will be doing the jive in retro '50s costumes. They start out by re-enacting the Sandy/Danny at the drive-in scene from Grease, and I don't think I needed to see Derek pretending that his crotch got slammed by the car door, thanks. I just had dinner. But it's a cute routine, and they use the car prop on stage well throughout. I miss Cheryl. She's grown on me. I didn't used to like her, but then again, I didn't always like Maks, either. Anyway, it's a cute routine. Nothing mind-blowing, but fun.
Annie Lennox is back to perform "Little Bird" with a bunch of female dancers dressed kind of like birds. So that was an interesting and distressingly literal choice. Annie Lennox rocks a lady suit and short hair like no other. She really is beautiful. She doesn't sound her best here, but even less than her best is still pretty amazing.
Clip package where the pros talk about the final four. Kyle is a firecracker who goes for it, and has a ton of personality, even if he lacks technique. Bristol has gained confidence, but needs to connect emotionally with the dance. Notably, Maks doesn't have a comment shown for Bristol. Interesting, since there were tabloid reports that Maks doesn't like her. Everyone compliments Jennifer's technique, but note that her injuries might affect her ability to give it her all. Brandy obviously wants it really badly, and is a great performer, but she might want it too badly. Derek mistakenly says that the person who deserves it the most will win. Well, that's not always how it happens, but you keep thinking that, Derek.
Next up, results for Kyle and Lacey. I'm still bothered that none of the judges call him out for his horrible footwork. Also, Lacey impaled her own leg with the heel of her shoe during last night's tango. That looks nasty. And yet, you never would have known, because she's a pro. So are Kyle and Lacey going to the finals? Yes! Wow. I thought they would at least pretend that they're in jeopardy. Hmm.
