Clip package where the pros talk about their competition and how great everyone is this season. Peta thinks Maria has shown the most improvement, despite her injuries. Mark thinks William's technique is his weakness, but Cheryl thinks his passion and emotion will help him connect to the audience. Everyone thinks Katherine has beautiful and graceful movements, but Mark thinks she might psych herself out. Cheryl points out that athletes like Donald do well in the competition because they know when to peak, although Peta thinks that he's used to being stiff and not lyrical, and it's a challenge.
Brooke is backstage with Katherine and Mark, where Katherine says that she's fine to keep dancing even though she may have gotten hurt again during her celebration. They try to get Mark and Katherine to watch their fall but there are technical difficulties and then Brooke tries to blame Mark but it sounds like they both made small mistakes that added up to a bigger one. Maria says that last night was "a triumphant victory of a night" because they had a terrible week but somehow pulled it out.
Design-A-Dance. It's a samba to a Beyonce song, and it will be danced by Tristan and Chelsie. I'm not surprised about Tristan. I am surprised about Chelsie, a little. Those two are cute together. It's nice to see them both dancing without having to talk their partners through the routine, and it's nice to see samba rolls done properly. I think they had a few issues with some lifts, though. And the ladies on the forums who are Tristan fans are going to have a FIELD DAY with the ending pose, where Tristan is leaning back on his knees and looking at Chelsie like he wants to...do things. It's a pretty sexy look.
Alanis Morrissette is on hand to sing her new song. I'm an Alanis fan. She's singing live, for one thing. And I miss the ladies of the '90s, like Shirley Manson and Courtney Love and Sheryl Crow and the whole Lilith Fair crew. There's the obligatory rumba while she sings.
