For season 16, week 5 of Dancing with the Stars, the couples competed in judge Len Goodman’s “Side by Side” challenge: each team performed with two pros who were eliminated, featured in previous seasons, or in the DWTS troupe. By night's end, Disney star Zendaya scored the season's first 10s and topped the leaderboard with 29 points; comedians Andy Dick and D.L. Hughley were tied at the bottom with 18 points. Before the competition began, hosts Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke Charvet expressed their concern for the bombings that occurred earlier in the day at the Boston Marathon.

The returning pros were Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Anna Trebunskaya, Chelsie Hightower, Tony Dovolani and Tristan MacManus; performers from the DWTS troupe were Henry Byalikov, Emma Slater, Sasha Farber and Witney Carson. The routines were judged by Goodman along with Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli.

Actor Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson dance a Cha-cha-cha alongside Tony Dovolani and Emma Slater. Their song is “Lady Marmalade” by Labelle. Ingo says he’s just hoping to skate by under the radar to make it through to next week. The men wear head-to-toe black; the women wear sparkly white fringed costumes. Len says Ingo kept up with stamina and energy all the way through, but needs a little more care with detail. Bruno tells Ingo, “Lady Marmalade got you in a bit of a jam.” Carrie Ann compliments Ingo’s sheer strength and will power, and also his extreme confidence and grace.
SCORES: Carrie Ann 7, Len 7, Bruno7, for a total of 21 out of 30

Superbowl Champion Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff do a Jive dance alongside Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Anna Trebunskaya. Their song is "Long Tall Sally" by Little Richard. The men wear black, and Jacoby is shirtless in purple suspenders; the women wear yellow and pink fringed costumes. The dance is great fun, and Jacoby does an impressive jump over Karina; they get a standing ovation. Bruno cites Jacoby’s “great timing” and calls the dance “very sharp”, but says he needs to point his feet. Carrie Ann says, “I love me some Jacoby.” Lens tells Jacoby, “You’ll never get a nine out of me with those feet.”
SCORES: Carrie Ann 9, Len 8, Bruno 9, for a total of 26 out of 30

Boxer Victor Ortiz and Lindsay Arnold do a Viennese Waltz alongside Tristan MacManus and Emma Slater. Their song is “Never Tear Us Apart” by INXS. Victor is distracted because he found out his girl has been out with another man, but he decides to take the pain and use it for the dance. Tristan wears a white tux, Victor is in grey; the women wear chiffon skirts with halter tops: Emma’s is white, Lindsay’s is pink. Carrie Ann says, “That was a victory, I think you channeled your emotions well”, but calls them out on a lift. Len thinks Victor was better than last week. Bruno calls Victor “elegant.”
SCORES: Carrie Ann 7, Len 7, Bruno 7, for a total of 21 out of 30

Olympic Gymnast Alexandra Raisman and Mark Ballas do a Samba alongside Tony Dovolani and Witney Carson. Their song is “Misery” by Maroon 5. Aly hopes to learn from Witney, who she says has the “It factor”. The men wear black; the women wear black shiny fringe accented with bright orange. Aly looks like she’s having fun. Len notices some mistakes, but says that overall the dance was “well done”. Bruno calls Aly, “sassy” and “saucy”, and says outside of the mistakes she had very strong technique. Carrie Ann thinks Aly danced better when Witney was on stage with her.
SCORES: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8, Bruno 9, for a total of 25 out of 30

The Bachelor Star Sean Lowe and Peta Murgatroyd do a Quickstep alongside Tristan MacManus and Chelsie Hightower. Their song is "Go Get It" by Sepalot featuring Ladi6. Sean wants to do well because he thought he was going home last week. The men wear black tuxedos; the women wear bronze sequins: Chelsie in a long skirt and halter top, Peta in bellbottoms and halter. Bruno tells Sean, “Tonight you tuned into a swan.” Carrie Ann thinks Sean looks determined and sure when he dances. Len remarks, “Last week a statue, this week a pigeon, you were flying around… your best dance so far.”
SCORES: Carrie Ann 8, Len 8, Bruno 8, for a total of 24 out of 30

Country Singer Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough do a Foxtrot alongside Henry Byalikov and Anna Trebunskaya. Their song is the classic “It Had to be You”. This is Kellie’s first true ballroom dance of the competition. The men wear tuxedos: Henry’s is black, Derek’s jacket is white with black lapels; the women wear white gowns: Anna’s has petal appliques, Kellie’s is shiny with a low back. Carrie Ann says she couldn’t tell it was Kellie’s first ballroom dance. Len says Kelly “puts the ‘oo’ in smooth.” Bruno compared Kellie to Jean Harlow.
SCORES: Carrie Ann 9, Len 9, Bruno 9, for a total of 27 out of 30

Comedian D.L. Hughley and Cheryl Burke do a Tango alongside Sasha Farber and Chelsie Hightower. Their song is "Love Letter" by Clairy Browne & the Bangin' Rackettes. D.L. says it helped to go through the steps with a man. Sasha wears black, D.L. is in grey; the women wear black chiffon gowns. Len compares the dance to decaf coffee and says it didn’t have any buzz. Bruno calls the dance a brave attempt but says the technique fell apart. Carrie Ann loves the intensity, but says during the side-by-side elements she could see a difference.
SCORES: Carrie Ann 6, Len 6, Bruno 6, for a total of 18 out of 30

Disney Star Zendaya and Val Chmerkovskiy do an Argentine Tango alongside Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Anna Trebunskaya. Their song is "Discombobulate" by Hans Zimmer. Surprisingly, Val has never danced the Argentine Tango, so he and Zendaya are both learning it this week.  Maks wears black pants and vest, Val’s vest has a red back; the women wear black lace, Zendaya’s costume is lined in red. Zendaya is spectacular, and in this dance she gives great face. Bruno calls Zendaya “the ultimate femme fatale,” and says she was as good and strong as Anna. Carrie Ann tells Zendaya, “Every move you do has a story.” Len compares the dance to a lemon tart: “sharp and tangy at the top, crisp and tasty down below.”
SCORES: Carrie Ann 10, Len 9, Bruno 10, for a total of 29 out of 30 – the first 10s of the season.

Comedian Andy Dick and Sharna Burgess do a Paso Doble alongside Sasha Farber and Emma Slater. Their song is an instrumental, "The Plaza of Execution" by James Horner (the band sounds amazing). Andy says when you line all four dancers up it’s obvious who isn’t the professional. The men wear black: Andy is dressed as Zorro in a cape and mask; Emma wears black pants and a train, Sharna wears a white costume with a long, swishy train. Andy flies onto the stage on a zipline. Carrie Ann enthuses that his entrance will never be forgotten and compliments his capework, but says “something was off.” Len says the dance was “More Pasadena than paso doble.” Bruno thinks the dance was indescribable.
