Switch up week means literally that-the couples switch partners for one week. Mark Ballas was paired with Paula Deen to perform the jive. While showing initial hesitancy with the partnership, Paula went for it with this fun dance to Otis Redding's Shake.
The judges called it Paula's best dance and gave her a combined score of 26.
Meanwhile, Mark's original partner Alexa PenaVega was paired with Derek Hough. They performed a tango to Pompeii by Bastille earning rave reviews from the judges and the first perfect score of the season.
There was not an elimination this week. The scores and votes from week four and five will be combined to determine who will be eliminated in week six. The couples will return to their original partners for the remainder of the competition.
