Now it's another performance from Jennifer Lopez, singing "Let's Get Loud." But there's actual ballroom dancing happening this time. I'd kind of like to see J. Lo doing some ballroom dancing. I bet she'd be pretty good. I guess she's too much of a pro (and too famous) to be a contestant on this show, but it would still be fun. In the middle, the four ladies (Julianne, Edyta, Karina, and Cheryl) do a chair dance that's kind of cool. It kind of creeps me out when Julianne and Derek do sexy dances together. The audience goes nuts when J. Lo finishes.
Samantha introduces a clip package about choreography. Julianne explains how all-consuming it is. Kym likes to go away by herself with the music to work out the routine. Edyta listens to the music fifty times before trying any steps. Maks choreographs with his partner on the spot in the rehearsal studio. Kym tries to balance technical steps and flashiness. Julianne plans stunts at the beginning and the middle and then a big ending. Maks tries to highlight the relationship with his partner over jumps and splits. Tony tries to show off his student. Kym talks about how they need to choreograph to their partner's strengths and weaknesses. Derek likes it when the judges compliment the choreography. Mark says that the greatest feeling is looking at your partner when the dance ends and realizing you pulled it off.
One more couple is safe. Who is it? Cameron and Edyta. After the break, Samantha is backstage with Mel and Maks. She asks Mel who she thinks will be in the bottom two, like Mel's going to answer that. Mel says they're like a family and she doesn't want to see anyone go. Maks talks about how difficult their week was, and he's even more impressed that they pulled it off. He has no conviction in his voice, which makes everyone chuckle. Samantha asks Mark and Kym if they are worried. Mark says he can't worry, because it's out of his hands, so he's just trying to enjoy things.
Clip package about the stress of the demands created by the show. Helio is racing cars, Mel is starting the Spice Girls tour, Sabrina is touring with the Cheetah girls, Cameron is jetting all over the place for his various acting gigs, Marie is releasing an album, Mark is running an empire, Jane has her art and her acting (?), and Jennie has a family. Wow, that made it sound like Jane and Jennie are not nearly as busy as the rest, didn't it? Because Marie has a family too, plus a job. Mel thinks the routines need to get more difficult as the competition gets more intense. Mark puts a lot of pressure on himself. Sabrina thinks she has the energy and the stamina to make it. Jane has experience and knows what it takes to survive as a performer. Cameron knows he signed up for this crazy schedule, and he's going to make it however he can.
