Title: Season 9, Week 5: Performance
Air Date: October 19, 2009 at 12:00 AM PDT
In the fifth week of performances, the couples perform either the Paso Doble or the Argentine Tango. Melissa's partner Mark was fighting off a cold, and Joanna's partner Derek had to be replaced mid-week because he caught the flu. Those challenges, combined with the pressure to make up for last week's harsh scores, set the stage for major drama.
The night ends with the stars and pros all performing their first group dance - the Hustle. After a hard week of rehearsing their Latin competition dances, they get a chance to shake their booties in the finest polyester duds!
