This is the week they switch partners! It is just for one week. The troop dances to the song "Switch" for the opening number.

This weeks guest judge is Julianne Hough! Tonight is the switchup! One night only. A new pro and different approach to training. Julianne has cut off all her hair, it is a short pixie style.
Candace is up first with Tony!

Candace says Tony always makes her blush. He and Mark have different styles of training. She really wants to score high to improve on last week's 8's. Tony says he does not want to be the reason she might be voted off. She says after a few days she really enjoys dancing with Tony.

They are dancing the quickstep. Candace's look reminds me of Avril Lavigne. A plaid halter top with a plaid skirt waist, black and red pixie skirt. Tony is in all black with a red tie and a studded belt.

Len says it was hair raising. They attacked it well done! Julianne says it was wonderful choreography. They both mentioned there were gaps in spacing. Bruno says he wasn't expecting the quick step with the Sex Pistols! He warns her about losing her frame. Loved the energy. Carrie says it was her first ballroom and it is hard to keep the hold. She loved the energy too.

They are dancing a tango. He is in a black jacket and pants with a gold trim. She is in a gold halter body suit and skirt with fringe and red jeweled embellishments.

Julianne calls James the total package. She says he has dedication, passion, technique but he is a little squatty. He needs to tuck his pelvis. Bruno says he has no problems with James' pelvis at all. "James the magnificent and Cheryl the Malificent!" Carrie says the butt was fine, she didn't notice at all there was a switch up. Len says dance is like fire, some should warm some should burn and this one burned!" He thought it was a tad manic, but hot and firey!

Erin says Cheryl is the girl who gets what she wants. They talk to Peta for a minute. They ask if James and Peta are dating, they don't answer. Scores: Carrie 9, Len 8, Julianne 9, Bruno 9 for 39! 71 out of 80 for 2 weeks!

Drew is paired with Witney! They did not expect to work with each other. She was with Cody the youngest and now she is with the oldest. She wants to get higher scores! He doesn't miss Cheryl as much as he thought he would. He is a slower learner but he is getting it done.

Julianne and Derek are going on tour this summer! They just announced it. Derek has taken creative oversight for the Macy's stars of Dance. They didn't have it last season and he has taken it on for this season. He feels like a kid in a candy store with this opportunity. There will be a slow motion camera technique in the performance, he says it will look awesome when done right. It is kind of a Paso Doble.

Danica is up now with Maks! She swapped one brother for the other! She was happy it was Maks. She thought they would be similar as partners but they are not. He says she is awesome but Danica questions everything.

They are dancing the Jive! She is in a black and white stripped halter body suit with a black short skirt and a pink crinoline. He is in a white tshirt, black pants and suspenders.

They had an issue with the music, they just kept going! Carrie says Danica was just a little ahead of Maks in the timing. Len says it was high energy, he would have liked a little more jive. Julianne agrees with Carrie and Len. She says "I almost felt like this week could get past so you could get back with Meryl." Maks denies it. Bruno says she did great with the cover up at the beginning with the music.
