Singer Brandy and her "Dancing with the Stars" partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy have made it to the final four -- and tonight they're putting special meaning into their Paso Doble routine.

"Our Paso Doble has such a special message," Brandy told "Extra." "It's dedicated to everybody that's been bullied in their life, and Maks and I have both been bullied."

The R&B singer said that she was teased so badly in junior high that she would hide in the teacher's parking lot just so she wouldn't have to confront anybody.

Maks took a moment to address last week's feud with judge Carrie Ann Inaba, saying that everything is "great" now. "I don't have any regrets. I just regret that it's kind of like washing dirty laundry in public."

See the competition heat up on "Dancing with the Stars" Monday at 8:00 PM PST on ABC.
