Time to look back at Maria and Derek. Before they went on, Maria actually licked her hand and slicked Cheryl's flyaway hairs down. I kind of loved that, although I don't know if Cheryl did. I seriously do not know how Derek did that jive with a bad back. And Maria could NOT have been more excited about their first-place finish. So are they safe or in jeopardy? They are in jeopardy. The crowd boos and Maria jokingly joins them, although she seems pretty okay with being in jeopardy. I guess this far along, you have to be prepared to go home.
Tom announces what was confirmed at the ABC upfronts today, that next season is going to be an All-Star season. He adds that there will be former champions and non-champions. So spend the summer figuring out who you want to see! Or not see. I don't want to see Bristol Palin or Kate Gosselin. Or Marie Osmond. Or Billy Ray Cyrus. I would like to see Mel B again. That's about it.
Brooke is backstage with Donald and William, but they are both super nervous and don't have much to say other than, "We hope people voted for us and we get to continue."
Julianne is back to promote her new movie Rock of Ages. They perform "Jukebox Hero". This guy singing is no Lou Gramm, or as people from my hometown of Rochester, New York knew him, Louie Grammitico from Gates-Chili. Julianne sings "I Love Rock and Roll" and then Mary J. Blige comes on and sings "Any Way You Want It." You know, if it weren't for Tom Cruise, I might see this movie. I know it will be terrible and cheesy, but I like things that are terrible and cheesy sometimes. I just don't think I can take Tom Cruise. After the number ends, Tom talks to Julianne and they have a cute father-daughter chemistry.
Carrie Underwood is on hand to fill time, I mean sing her latest song. I like Carrie Underwood, but just tell me who's going home.
Last night, William and Cheryl were totally focused after their first dance and knew they had to nail their second one. William's son was totally asleep. Aw, poor little guy. Don't you envy kids their ability to just sleep through anything? One of my kids slept through fireworks being set off about ten yards from us last Fourth of July. I was ready to leave but he just kept sleeping. Anyway, Donald and Peta also did great last night and Donald was thrilled.
