Norah Jones is on hand to perform, and they've put a new stage in for musical performers. Some bizarrely dressed pro dancers go out on the floor; the women are in these Goth-type short poofy white dresses with tall black boots with fishnet stockings. And the dudes are in jodhpurs? And they're kind of just dragging the ladies around the floor. Obviously the producers haven't quite worked out the logistics of the new stage and whatnot since some cameraman run in front of the camera halfway through. Oops. That whole thing was weird. I like Norah Jones though.
Clip package where pretty much all of the couples agree that they did the best they could, and they practiced a lot, and yet they still know that they could go home. So it's time to find out if the top three couples based on judges' scores are safe or not. Mark and Lacey are safe, but Tom taunts Lacey first for pulling a face. Heh. Donny and Kym are safe too. How about Mya and Dmitry? They are safe too. I was a little worried about Mya; I feel like she gets taken for granted because she doesn't really have an improvement arc. She's been good all along.
The bumper to commercial features Mark reminiscing about his performance last season with Shawn to "P.Y.T." Mark is obviously a big MJ fan since he always wears the socks and the short pants, and he says that it felt great to dance to Michael's music.
Clip package about what goes on throughout the week behind the scenes. On Monday, everyone has to be there early for hair and makeup. Aaron hangs out at Craft Services. Mark D. and Natalie both want to check out the dance floor to get acquainted. Natalie tries to relax in her trailer. Kelly checks in with the other dancers and pros to see how they are doing and to keep her mind off her performance later. Mya likes going to wardrobe for her fittings because she gets a custom outfit every week. Donny likes to hang out backstage because there's so much energy. Finally, it's showtime and all that's left to do is dance. That was actually a well-produced segment; they had a lot of the celebrities running into each other and then they would follow the new celebrity. It wasn't like we learned a whole lot of new information, but for filler, it was watchable.
