Dancing With the Stars 2014: Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s Week 5 Samba (VIDEO)

On Dancing With the Stars Season 18, Week 5, Disney Week, Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy danced the Samba to "I Wanna Be Like You," from The Jungle Book.

In the video package, Maks and Meryl seemed really happy to be together again. Lots of compliments all around! Maks also said it was hard to Samba to this song. He thinks of Samba as sexy, but this needed to be a comedy dance, which is not his thing.

Maks was shirtless for this dance. Nice. Meryl shook her butt. Go Meryl! The actual dancing was very good, of course. Fast, fun, and technically strong. We agree with Maks that this was a weird song for a Samba, but what're you gonna do?

Carrie Ann said she was puzzled, because they dance so in tune together. She's never seen that from Maks before. "This year, there's something very special here." Len said it was great entertainment, and terrific. Donny Osmond said it was thoroughly entertaining. Bruno said it really was a wonderful, wonderful dance. Also he liked Maks' shirtlessness.

Score: 36/40.

Dancing With the Stars airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
