The celebrities switched partners for Week 5 of Dancing with the Stars, and guest judge, Jessie J took her seat at the table.

While some couples did well with the switch-up, others found it hard to find their groove with a new partner. The judges were generally unimpressed, offering low scores and harsh criticism to many of the couples.

Other couples had fun with the switch-up, feigning jealousy and becoming a little more competitive. 

There were no perfect scores this week, but Sadie and Derek found themselves at the top of the leader board thanks to their Charleston routine.

Alfonso and Cheryl also did well with their Flamenco, and Lea and Val offered a "way wackadoodle" Broadway routine that was lots of fun to watch.

Janel and Artem's sexy Burlesque left one judge a little disgusted and one judge quite the opposite. But more importantly, it left Janel's regular partner a little jealous.

Bethany and Mark performed a spunky Hip-Hop routine, and Antonio and Allison's Bollywood nothing short of entertaining.

Judges again were not impressed with Jonathan this week, calling his Jitterbug routine "uncomfortable." 

Tommy's Mambo also failed to impress, earning a low score from Julianne that she seemed pained to give.

But at the bottom of the list this week was Michael Waltrip, who only managed to earn a score of 20 for his Disco routine.

There were no eliminations this week. Instead, scores will be combined for next week's show.
