'Dancing With the Stars': Week 5 is liiiiiiiiiiiiive!


Image Credit: Adam Taylor/ABC

Update: Annie’s recap is live. It’s ’80s Night, and the feeling’s right! David Arquette has created this Mirrorballus art project just for you. “It’s official, I look absolutely ridiculous today. Ridiculous!!” Derek Hough has tweeted. Oh dear lord.

The Bangles are there tonight, and I don’t just mean Carson Kressley’s bracelets! (I’m assuming. I think that’s safe.)

Welcome to week 5 of Dancing With the Stars season 13! Go ahead and discuss the two-hour performance show here, or try our more “live blog”-esque experience over at EW.com’s Viewer.

Remember to nominate your Hidden Gems of the Week in this post as usual, and I’ll see you tomorrow morning for my full recap!

In the meantime, ask me anything about THE BALLROOM (or whatever) in the video player below and I may answer your question later on!

    Hi all, ready for some cool 80’s costumes and moves?

    • kt

      Brooke’s dress even makes her look just as robotic as she acts! Success!

      • Natalie

        And I think Brooke has Snookie hidden in her pouf tonight.

      • H

        exactly…she is a real snooze!

      • Rolf


    • Ish

      didn’t get a chance to watch; was Cher in the audiene again?

      • Rebecca

        I didn’t see her but I was looking.

  • Amy in Pittsburgh

    OMG, Susanna Hoffs is just as ageless as Macchio.

    • etm


    • Kata


  • duranmom

    Bangles medley! Yessssss!!!!

  • Kelly


    • scyren

      It was horribly off key. First time in a while I was praying for autotune to kick in.

    Hi all! As a child of the 80s, this is going to be a mixture of complete awesome cheese and cringe-worthy gasps of “Gads, has it really been that long and has time been as cruel to me?”

  • iggy

    Oooo a behind the curtain shot of Derek stabbing Ricki!

  • Carmella

    bruno doing the egyptian!!

  • SunBlitz42

    There goes Bruno again….

  • Carmella

    brooke covered in gems!!!

  • CA

    OMG I see Brooke has decided to embrace the 80’s week theme. You can land plane on those shoulders!

    • Neko

      I don’t know, they look too pointy to me. Weren’t 80s shoulder pads boxier? These remind me of Lady Gaga.

      • jennie

        actually reminds me of david bowie

      • Neko

        Oh, that’s much better! Yes, could totally see that on Bowie.

  • orville

    BBC “rocking” the shoulder pads and big hair!

  • Amy in Pittsburgh

    Darn it, Tom totally scooped my HG nomination! It was totally BBC’s shoulder pads!

    • duranmom

      Tom had better stay away from BBC — he could put an eye out on one of her shoulders.

    • Jem Ho

      There was an old David Letterman show where he referred to poofy shoulders as ‘having shoulder gerbils’. That was all I could think of looking at Brooke – she’s got shoulder gerbils!

  • duranmom

    The back of Bruno Walking like an Egyption.

  • Neko

    I love Anna’s side ponytail!

    • Amy in Pittsburgh

      And it”s CRIMPED! My seventh-grade-flashback self is soooooo jealous. I bet she used Loreal’s Studio Line styling spray too.

      • orville

        Not Dippity Do or LA Looks?

      • Amy in Pittsburgh

        LA LOOKS! Awesome.

      • Speech Teacher

        Aussie Sprunch Spray, anyone?!?

      • jmm

        To truly be 80’s she would have had to use extra strength Aqua Net – lol

      • Jem Ho

        Aussie Sprunch Spray for sure!!

      • cricket

        1000x YES to the Aussie spray!

      • Call me Daphne

        Dippity Do — the firm maker!

  • Kelly

    When do we get to two dances for each couple? I’d love the extra dose of 80’s!
