Misty May obviously can't return to dance, but she explains that she just got cleared to walk, and she can't wait to get back out there and dance. She refuses to pick a favorite amongst the finalists. Maks' hair is growing back and he looks great, I think. I don't like the long hair. It looks greasy to me. Maks says that Warren is hilarious, and he'd like Lance to win because he's going on tour, and Brooke is obviously a class act. As Tom tries to introduce Rocco and Karina, Maks gooses him, which always makes me laugh. I know. I'm juvenile.
Rocco and Karina do their mambo. There are whole segments of the routine where Rocco is just standing there and Karina is dancing her little heart out. Rocco does ham it up a little bit, but there's not much dancing in this routine. As we go to break, Tom introduces a movie-style trailer about Cloris called Dirty Dancing: The Senior Years. It's about as hilarious as you'd imagine.
Now we're up to weeks five and six. Lance fell down. Susan finally got some attitude. Carrie Ann gave Maurice a hug. The Hough siblings had dueling jitterbugs. Toni was told that she wasn't living up to her potential. And oh, the group hip hop. What a disaster that was. Michael Flatley was the guest judge. Susan allegedly finally loosened up, although I didn't see it. The dancers all liked the high scores from Michael Flatley. The judges liked Lance's routine, for once. Cody started peaking, but then Julianne had to leave the competition for surgery. Cloris FINALLY got eliminated, and vowed not to leave, even though we all know that she did. I do still wonder about that. I know she's had some health problems since leaving, but I am still surprised that she didn't show up.
Toni and Alec are back, but apparently Toni just had surgery so she can't dance. But she will be joining the tour, singing and dancing. Tom gives a big introduction to Cloris, who will be doing her tango. Cloris looks like she's lost weight. I guess pneumonia or whatever she had will do that to you. I'm actually kind of impressed by her tango. Her movements are sharp and crisp for once. Corky totally grabs and cups her ass cheek. Inappropriate! Sometimes I wonder how much of my objections to her routines were due to Corky's choreography. Anyway, it's a pretty good routine, and a great routine for Cloris. The crowd loves her and she gets a standing ovation. And an interview! Which no one else has had so far. Samantha asks how this experience compared to all Cloris's other life experiences. Cloris asks, "To pregnancy?" Then Tom asks if she's going back to Broadway, but her show is closing. Oops. Then Tom and Cloris act out a scene from Young Frankenstein and I have no idea what's going on, which is usually what happens when Cloris is on the show.
