Samantha is backstage with Lacey and Mark as well as Kelly and Louis. She points out that Kelly and Louis will have two individual dances next week. Kelly thinks the build-up has been gradual so she thinks she's ready for it. Louis jokes that he'll make Kelly cry in rehearsal some more to get her ready and Kelly vows that she's done being a crybaby. Samantha asks Mark about the dance-off and he says they're ready if they get to do it, and apparently Lacey is going to be the one dancing with him.
Tom is ready to reveal again one couple that is safe and one couple in the bottom three. The couple that is safe is... Donny and Kym. Donny is thrilled; I think he's really sick. He's sweating like crazy. The next couple in the bottom three is... Michael and Anna. Well, no shocking results yet.
So then the Ballas Hough Band comes out to perform. Hmm. How do I say this kindly? Oh, forget being kind. They are horrible. First of all, the whole "song" is done in a monotone, and yet it's still autotuned. Like if you can't sing one note successfully without the help of electronics, maybe you shouldn't be a singer. Second, they aren't a band. There's no one playing any instruments; it's just Derek and Mark and a bunch of dancers. The dancing is good, but then call yourselves the Ballas Hough Dance Troupe. I bet little girls would dig it, because they have no taste and like nonthreatening men who sing and dance, but anyone over the age of 14 should be ashamed of themselves if they are "fans" of this group. I think Mark and Derek have spent too much time around yes-men and groupies, and don't have anyone to tell them that this is just a catastrophe. I wonder what they threatened to the producers to get a spot on the show? And finally, I think the song was called "Watch Your Body," but for the first two-thirds, I thought it was called "Wash Your Body," and wondered if I had wandered into a commercial for soap.
