Kirstie and Maks are dancing next. Kirstie wants to do the cha cha because it's sentimental, since it was their first dance. Plus she wants to show that her dress is half the size she was in her first week, not to mention that she has more strength and technique. Just like I said last night, I kind of wish they would show the first version and then have them dance the new version. Anyway, Kristie looks amazing. She really does. She's not the best dancer, but I can see how people are inspired by her "journey" this season. And she looks like she's having a lot of fun out there, which goes far. When the dance ends, they cut to Mark and Chelsea watching. Chelsea is smiling and hooting, and Mark looks pissed off. I hate him. Bruno tells her that she's never been better. Carrie Ann thinks Kirstie is authentic and maybe a little magic. Len thinks Kirstie is resilient and has improved her weaknesses, and this was her best dance. Scores: Carrie Ann 10, Len 10, and Bruno 10. Of course. They don't want more accusations that tonight's scores changed the order of the finalists. I don't know what's going on with Kirstie's dress or underwear but she keeps grabbing at it like it's falling apart.
And finally, Hines and Kym. Ralph is sitting in the front row of the audience, still wearing his fedora. He can take that off now. Anyway, Hines and Kym are going to do their samba. Well chosen. Hines is moving and grooving , like always, and his hip action is great, but his feet are kind of terrible. Whatever, the judges will give them 10s. It's not like he's going to get better next week. After his routine, he runs over and kisses his mom and she shoos him away, which was hilarious. The crowd goes wild. Carrie Ann says that the crowd is right. Wait, why is Sarah Palin there? Is Bristol there? What is going on? Anyway, Carrie Ann is really impressed with Hines as a dancer and a person. Len thinks Hines brings every dance to life. Bruno calls Hines a charming dazzler and Mr. Irresistible. Scores: Carrie Ann 10, Len 10, and Bruno 10.
