They’re getting closer!
The final four contestants on Dancing with the Stars – Bristol Palin, Brandy, Jennifer Grey and Kyle Massey – are a week away from season 11’s big announcement. And although they still have to face an elimination Tuesday night, when one of them will go home, and another week of intense rehearsals, all they can think about is winning.
PEOPLE caught up with each of the contestants and their pro partners following Monday’s performance show, where they all shined on the parquet and had visions of mirror ball trophies dancing in their heads.
“I want to win so bad, but I’m very thankful to have made it this far, too,” Palin said, with Mark Ballas by her side. “I think it would be an inspiration to a lot of people.”
“[Winning] would be the icing on the cake,” Brandy told PEOPLE with Maksim Chmerkovskiy listening next to her. “But the cake is the journey – the journey of just connecting to my confidence again and to my power and believing in myself again and gaining an amazing friend.”
“I’m just enjoying this moment so much that I don’t want to get ahead of myself,” said Grey, whose two performances with Derek Hough were both awarded perfect scores from the judges. “I’m loving tonight.”
Kyle Massey said he wanted to win the trophy “just as bad as everyone else.” He acknowledged that the final results will come down to “who performed the best,” before partner Lacey Schwimmer added, “And the fans!”
