My colleague Rodney Ho, a huge DWTS fan (or expert, at least), is on vacation so you'll have to subsist on the official recap from the show:

"Dancing with the Stars  returned for week 5 with Famous Dances Night, where celebrities recreated iconic dances from movies and music videos. Grease star Olivia Newton-John  took a seat at the judge's table alongside  Julianne HoughCarrie Ann Inaba and  Bruno TonioliBindi Irwin and Derek Hough  earned a perfect 40 for their Dirty Dancing-inspired Rumba to "(I've Had) The Time of My Life." Tamar Braxton and Valentin Chmerkovskiy  brought down the house with their intense Jazz routine to Janet Jackson's iconic Rhythm Nation, also earning a perfect score. The final 40 of the night went to Andy Grammer and Allison Holker  for a Jazz dance to "Good Morning" from Singin' in the Rain.   Paula Deen  channelled Marie Antoinette in her version of Madonna's "Vogue" with  Louis van Amstel , but at the end of the night was eliminated from the competition."
