Dancing With the Stars 2013: Best and Worst Week 5 Performances
Dancing With the StarsSeason 16 placed the stars next to the pros to see what they're really made of for the Week 5 performances (April 15, 2013). Who shone even while dancing side-by-side with the best of the best, and whose flaws are highlighted? We bring you our picks for the best and worst of the week.
Best: Zendaya Coleman & Valentin Chmerkovskiy
Zendaya and Val earned the first 10s of the season — two of them! — for this Argentine Tango to "Discombobulate" by Hans Zimmer, and we think they were totally deserved. It was sexy (but age appropriate), sharp, and she kept up with Anna. Loved it!
Honorable Mention: Kellie Pickler & Derek Hough
After an underwhelming Week 4, Kellie Pickler andDerek Hough are back! This Foxtrot to “It Had to Be You” suited them perfectly.
Jacoby Jones andKarina Smirnoff's Jive to "Long Tall Sally" by Little Richard was all fun. Yeah, yeah, he needs to point his feet — but we still love to watch him dance.
Worst: D.L. Hughley & Cheryl Burke
D.L. Hughley andCheryl Burke are back on the bottom with this Tango to "Love Letter" by Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes. In his defense, he's improved, a lot — it's just that the other stars have, too.
Dis-honorable mention: Victor Ortiz & Lindsay Arnold
We're not quite sure what the judges saw in Victor Ortiz and Lindsay Arnold's Viennese Waltz to "Never Tear Us Apart" by INXS, but it didn't impress us.
