It's time to announce the first couple's fate. Tom Bergeron announces the first couple who will definitely be returning to dance again next week: Lil' Kim and Derek Hough.
The judges take the spotlight with a little video of what makes the perfect dancer. Len, Carrie Ann and Bruno explain that you need Chuck's winning attitude, Gilles' arms, Ty's core strength, Melissa's legs, Shawn's feet and Lil' Kim's face. Which basically turns into a Frankenstein's monster. Ha.
The next couple who is safe and will be returning to dance next week is Ty Murray and Chelsie Hightower! Uh oh, does that mean that Chuck and Julianne will be eliminated?
Time for another "celebrity endorsement" fake ad. This time, Melissa Rycroft is hawking "Dance Match," which is like an eHarmony for choosing dance partners.
Before we get to anything more substantive, we get another song, "Sidestep," by Robin Thicke, this one off of his new album. He is joined onstage by Anya Garnis and Pasha Kovalev from So You Think You Can Dance
. There's so much crossover between these two shows now that it's hard to see where Dancing with the Stars
ends and SYTYCD
begins. Isn't SYTYCD
starting soon too?
OK, the next couple who is still in the competition is Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke. Cheryl kind of freaks out happily as if she were expecting to be eliminated tonight.
Another celebrity endorsement fake ad. This time it is for "People for the Ethical Treatment of Dancers," which is actually a funny little send up of the naked PETA ads. The professional dancers in the ad are shot in grainy black and white. They are naked save for mirror ball trophies covering up their naughty bits, and they implore the camera, "How many more rhinestones have to be hurt?"
