Everyone did amazing this week! Seriously, I think these are some of the highest scores of the season and, of course, congrats to Alexa and Derek on the first perfect score of the season!

Since the couples were switched this week there was no elimination. Instead, the scores from this week will be added to the scores from last week and play a part in the next elimination.

Make sure you guys vote for your favourites to keep them in the show!

Also, on a sadder note, anyone who watches the show knows Tom Bergeron was absent last week to be at his father’s bedside. Unfortunately, Tom’s father passed away and my heart goes out to Tom and his whole family.B
