Dancing With the Stars Week Five Recap: “Switch Up Week”

Dancing With the Stars S22

Season 22 | Week Five | Aired: April 18th, 2016

So I fell behind on watching Dancing With the Stars, but I finally managed to get caught up just in time for the quarter finals. How are there only six couples left already? However! This recap is not for the quarter finals, it is for week five: Switch Up Week!

From the celebs having new partners to a live performance by James Bay to Maks Chmerkovskiy guest judging, it was quite a night.

Here are the scores:

Wanya Morris & Witney Carson
Dance: Tango
Song: “Hold Back the River” – James Bay

Now, because it was Switch Up Week there was no elimination, but it was definitely interesting seeing how each of the celebs did dancing with someone else.

And I was so proud of Nyle getting the first ten of the season! And from Len no less!

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
