The final four celebrities-turned-hoofers face off Monday night in the “Dancing With the Stars” semifinals, and thanks to loose-lipped competitors, a few pre-show details are known.
The theme-free, back-to-basics episode will feature one Latin routine and one traditional ballroom dance for each star. Bristol Palin and pro partner Mark Ballas take on the paso doble and the waltz. The samba and the Argentine tango are expected for Kyle Massey and Lacey Schwimmer. Frontrunners Jennifer Grey and Derek Hough will dance the cha cha cha and waltz, while their closest competition, Brandy and Maksim Chmerkovskiy will attempt to paso doble and Argentine tango their way to the finals.
The specifics for each routine remain under wraps, but Brandy recently revealed the story behind one of her upcoming dances.
“Our paso doble is dedicated to anybody who has been bullied in their life,” Brandy told Entertainment Tonight. “Maks and I both had experiences when we were children and we want to tell a story in our paso doble, and we think that is the perfect story to tell.”
Massey wouldn’t reveal quite as much as Brandy, but did offer a little tease for his tango.
“It’s my sexy dance, ‘cause I’m a sexy man in my sexy pants doing my sexy dance,” the Disney Channel star joked.
