Brittany Brannon (voiceover): Tonight, we must let two more of our celebrities go. Only 4 days away from our first ever Partner Ditch dances, who will miss out on dancing with another fellow competitor? (more clips shown) Find out. LIVE! This is... Dancing with the Stars!
Brittany: Hello, and Welcome to Dancing with the Stars! I'm Brittany Brannon.
Kendall: And I'm Kendall Schmidt.
Brittany: Tonight, we find out which two celebrities are leaving us only 4 days before our first ever Partner Ditch dances. Who will the unlucky two be?
Kendall: After Wednesdays show, the leaderboard was again shaken up as Sandra took the lead from Hank and Lady Gaga found herself near the bottom.
Brittany: Right away, let's get to the encore performance!
Len: We obviously want Sandra and Derek and their perfect Viennese Waltz back for another time. It was simply memorable. (HUGE applause from audience)
Brittany: No way! Please welcome back for the second time, Sandra and Derek! (applause continues)
Sandra is wearing her long white dress. Derek is in his white dress shirt with grey vest and pants. They re-do their Viennese Waltz to “Every Day” by Rascal Flatts. Once they've finished, they receive another standing ovation.
Brittany: It's OK, Kendall. Be strong! Now, Sandra's dance wasn't the only highlight from Wednesday's episode. We saw many fun Sambas, touching Viennese Waltzes, and romantic Rumbas.
Kendall: Now, if you didn't catch our episode on Wednesday, here's a little montage of what you missed out on. Take a look...
A montage/recap of all of the dances from Week 4 are played. A leaderboard recap is played with comments from each of the stars after their dances.
Kendall: This week we actually got the most votes of the season this week! (audience cheers)
Brittany: Now, in no apparent order, let's reveal the first 4 couples who have been saved with the help of your votes, and 1 that has landed in the bottom-three.
Dramatic elimination theme music plays
Kendall: The first couple safe to dance next week is... (camera pan the couples) ...Tina and Louis! (cheers; Tina's eyes bulge with amazement)
Brittany: The next couple safe to dance is... (camera pans couples) ...Katy and Mark! (cheers; Katy hugs Mark)
Kendall: Another couple safe to dance is... (camera pans couples) Hank and Edyta! (cheers; Edyta hugs Hank)
Brittany: The fourth couple that's safe is... (camera pans couples) Steve and Chelsie! (cheers; Steve gives Brittany a 'thumbs-up')
Kendall: Now, let's reveal the first couple in the bottom-three. That couple is... (camera pans couples) Oprah and Alec. (boos; Oprah smiles)
Regular lighting returns
Big Time Rush performs "Worldwide" while Peta and Damian perform a contemporary dance. Damian and Peta perform some amazing lifts.
VT plays. We see clips of Oprah's dances. Oprah says the judges haven't have one nice thing to say about her dancing since she stepped foot on the floor. She calls out Bruno for being the harshest of the 4 judges. When asked why he never eases up on Oprah, Bruno says "I'll gladly raise her scores when she learns to improve her dancing." The VT ends with things between Oprah and the judges almost resolved. The judges say they will ease up the next week.
Zac: (laughs) Yeah, I think they liked it. I got a 10 for it, so I'm happy. I'll push myself better next week.
Kendall: We hope so. Now, Zooey, your dance was very emotional. Where did you get the inspiration for it?
Zooey: I think we got the idea from the lyrics. Dami and I listened to it for hours and after a while it sort of came to us.
Kendall: It was awesome! Can't wait for next week. Cher, your Samba was such fun this week. Any hints for what next week may bring?
Cher: I don't know... Maybe I'll pop out of a giant cake. (laughs) I'm really looking foreward to the Partner Ditch dances.
Kendall: Oh, boy! Can't wait for that either. Now... Lil Wayne. Any ideas on who your celebrity partner should be next week?
Lil Wayne: Ya'know, I'd love it if I could dance with a more mature lady like Oprah or Cher (puts arm around Cher) I'll be fine with anyone, though!
Kendall: We'll see what we can do, man! Let's go out to Brittany for some more results.
Kendall: (now with Brittany) Hey, Brit! Missed you! The next couple safe is... (camera pans couples) ...Lil Wayne and Nicole! (cheers; Lil Wayne smiles)
Brittany: The next safe couple is... (camera pans couples) ...Reese and Tony! (cheers; Reese hugs Tony)
Kendall: Another couple returning next week is... (camera pans couples) ...Zac and Peta! (cheers; Peta hugs Zac)
Brittany: The fifth safe couple is... (camera pans couples) ...Cody and Julianne! (cheers; Cody does an air-guitar)
Kendall: And the next couple in the bottom-three is... (camera pans couples) ...Cher and Maksim. (boos; Cher chuckles slightly)
Big Time Rush sings "Till I Forget About You" as Cheryl, Karina, Kym, Maksim, Tony, and Derek do a pro-group dance.
Kendall: Let's find out the fate of our remaining five couples. The next star safe from elimination is... (camera pans couples) ...SANDRA and DEREK! (cheers; Sandra hugs Derek)
Brittany: Another star securing their spot in next week's competition is... (camera pans couples) ...Logan and Jeanine! (cheers; Jeanine kisses Logan on the cheek)
Kendall: The next safe couple is... (camera pans couples) ...Rihanna and Val! (cheers; Rihanna jumps up and down)
Brittany: As you can see, we have 2 couples left up here, 2 spots left in the competition, and 1 spot left in the bottom-two. We will now call the name of the last couple that is safe from elimination. And they are... (camera pans Lady Gaga and Zooey) ...Zooey and Damian! (cheers; Zooey smiles)
Kendall: Which means Lady Gaga and Dmitry will join Oprah and Cher in the bottom-three. (audience erupts with boos; LG smiles)
Kendall: Well, for our 13 stars that know they're safe, next week is gonna be a whole new experience. To sample what they'll be doing, Brittany and I took matters into our own hands. Take a look...
VT runs. We see Brittany and Kendall dance a sample Partner Ditch, choreographed by Corky and Anna T.
Brittany: A few other things that'll be going on next week are that... Bruno will not be with us as he has Italian work to attend to (audience awws), and in his place will be 9 celebrity guest judges from Season 27 onward, and all of our celebrity couples will also be dancing 2 Team dances.
Brittany: Let's just get it over with.
Kendall: Oprah and Alec, Cher and Maksim, and Lady Gaga and Dmitry have all found themselves in the bottom-three. Let's find out the results.
Dramatic elimination music plays
Kendall: (camera goes to Oprah) Oprah and Alec. Oprah, your Rumba wasn't a success at all, but the big drama didn't come until your dance was finished, when you suddenly walked off stage. Does America want more drama?
Brittany: (camera goes to Cher) Cher and Maksim. Cher, your Samba was an improvement over your Tango, but ultimately wasn't too thrilling. Are you going to be around to provide more surprises?
Kendall: (camera goes to Lady Gaga) Lady Gaga and Dmitry. LG, after you tried to simplify your Viennese Waltz, the judges called it dull and placed you near the bottom of the leaderboard. Will next week be an improvement?
Kendall: (camera pans Oprah, Cher, and Lady Gaga) Oprah and Alec... Cher and Maksim... Lady Gaga and Dmitry... On this fourth week of competition, the first couple with the lowest overall total and therefore leaving right now is...
Elimination music plays and camera pans in
Kendall: Oprah and Alec. (audience boos; Oprah hugs Alec)
Brittany: Oh, guys, come on down here and join us for the next elimination. (Oprah and Alec walk down to Brittany and Kendall)
Elimination music plays and camera pans in again
Brittany: (gasps) Lady Gaga and Dmitry. (audience erupts with boos to the point of the dialogue from the hosts becoming inaudible)
Kendall: (shocked look) Which means Cher and Maks, you're safe. (small cheers; Cher and LG hug and Dmitry and Maksim high-five as Lady Gaga and Dmitry walk down to Oprah and Alec)
Kendall: I don't know, Brit. LG, what just happened?
Lady Gaga: (laughs) hey, I beat five other couples... That's better than I thought I'd do. It's ultimately the public's decision and if they decide that I'm not going to stay for another week, I must respect that. I'll try and come back and sing for you all in a few weeks! (audience applauds)
Brittany: Dmitry? Final thoughts?
Dmitry: Well, although it was very, very, very shortlived, I'm going to miss dancing with LG. Her style was something out of the ordinary, and I loved it! Please give me someone like her next season! (laughs)
Brittany: And Oprah! Aw man, we're gonna miss your strength in this competition. We've never had someone fight as hard as you. What will you miss the most about the DWTSGame?
Oprah: I'll miss you the most, precious (hugs Brittany). I'm glad that my fanbase was able to put me through 4 weeks of this. I had a blast and I am so thankful that you wanted me. Thank you. (audience cheers)
Kendall: Alec... Thoughts?
Alec: I just think that the judges could've been a lot nicer. It really took away from Oprah's experience on the show. She really tried and I can vouch for millions of people when I say "I am proud of her." What an inspiration.(standing ovation; Oprah and Alec hug, Oprah starts crying)
Kendall: And I'm Kendall Schmidt. Good night and thanks for watching.
