In week seven, Louis dropped Chelsie, and Aaron made a comeback with Len. They had to do a competition mambo, where they all danced at the same time, which Joanna and Derek won despite their somewhat vulgar movements. Kelly's routine made Bruno get up on the desk and shake his hips. Aaron's forehead vein freaked me out, and Team Tango won the team competition.
Melissa never got to perform her knockout dance, the salsa, so she's here to do it now. It's an homage to The Mask, with Mark wearing the bright yellow suit that you may remember from Helio's freestyle in his season's finals. And this song, "Cuban Pete", was also used previously. Have we run out of music already? Anyway, it's decent but it suffers from all of the problems that Melissa's routines suffered from during her season, although she does do an impressive drop into a split at the end.
Clip package of the judges talking about the finalists. Len finds Kelly's place in the finals to be unexpected, and Bruno points out how well she connects with the audience. Carrie Ann talks about how Donny is a born showman, and Kym is his perfect partner. So true. I don't know that he would have made it this far with a different partner. Mya is the most talented, according to Len, and Bruno thinks she never goes wrong (well, except in her freestyle last night). Shouldn't we have seen this package last night? It seems a little late to tell us that only one couple is going to win.
To kill some more time, the finalists are introduced yet again. I'm still fascinated by the amount of Botox in Donny's forehead.
Let's review each partnership. First up, Louis and Kelly. Kelly hated "standing in a room and looking at herself in a mirror, sweating," due to her lack of confidence. But when Bruno told her she was beige, she got upset, but then she got serious. And she admits that this has changed her life, as she and Louis both start crying. And now, their final dance together, a reprise of their Viennese waltz. This was a great choice, as it really shows off Kelly's beautiful lines and joy at being out on the floor. I'm glad her freestyle wasn't her final showing. Wow, weird pairing in the audience --- Marie Osmond is sitting next to Steve-O. The audience starts chanting her name and Len can barely be heard over them as he says that he loved having her on the show. Bruno calls her "a ballroom princess" who found a new level of confidence. Carrie Ann is all choked up as she says that Kelly has touched her the most out anyone from any season. Sharon is totally crying in the audience. Ozzy would be crying if his face could move.
