Last Monday, Sherri delivered a heartfelt rumba for her son. Now she says she's tired of crying and wants to have fun with her performance.
In the video Val describes the dance as reflecting a typical man/woman relationship. Sherri complains of his vain ways and says he's been pushing her about all week - in between checking out his appearance in the mirror, of course. Later on, Val affectionately kisses her body all over to make her feel better about their petty arguments, but later complains that you can't please women even if you're complimenting them. As Sherri catches the end of his complaint, she jokes, "Did you call me fat?!"
Len: "There was an incident with your feet, but overall you did a great job."
Bruno: "You did the last dance for me," he starts, but referring to this week's tango with Val, he says: "You did this one for him and he loved it!" He continues by saying that she had a great attitude, but the performance needed to be a little sharper.
Carrie Ann: "It was good, but your normal exuberance was lacking, your face was expressionless. There's a difference between expressionless and intense." Clearly in disagreement, the studio audience boo Carrie Ann.
Score: 21 out of 30
Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas - Paso doble
She has dominated the competition so far, and last week Katherine's waltz earned her the highest score of the season. This week she says she needs to be a Welsh warrior.
The delicate classical singer is in a boxing ring practicing her punches. She says she is shocked and scared about what goes on in the ring because it's a little bit aggressive. The girly girl gets off to a good start, and progresses with her body rotation and technique. She hopes that her skills will turn her into a "badass".
Carrie Ann: "You made gorgeous pictures with your body. The intensity was there." However she complains that Katherine's footing was off.
Len: "It had promise, but it didn't deliver." Len says that she went for the attack but it wasn't perfect. However, he adds: "You are a wonderful dancer."
Bruno: "We've got Katherine on kickass mode unleashing a whirlwind of fury!" he begins as he climbs to his feet. However, Bruno warns she has to be careful because the style of dance requires technique and her performance wasn't as clean and defined as it should have been.
Score: 24 out of 30
The TV star paid tribute to Mickey Mouse last week, but now it's time to move on to Mick Jagger. He says there was zero rock in his house as his mother wasn't into that genre, so he adopts a scarf to become more like the Rolling Stones musician when he practices. He jokes that Jagger walked like George Jefferson.
The passionate and fiery dance requires Jaleel to be swung on the floor by his partner despite his heavy frame, which proves difficult for Kym as they prepare to move to 'I Can't Get No Satisfaction'. Will they pull it off in the live performance?
Carrie Ann: "I loved it. I loved seeing you bring George Jefferson to the tango." But she criticises that Jaleel has a tendency to be a little smooth. She urges him to try not to do that, but as a whole admits she loved it.
Len: "I liked the humour you put into it." Len then says he's fed up with girls on their bums, and found it hilarious that they switched gender roles. However he tells them the footwork needs to be delayed like a panther, and unfortunately we didn't see that. Jaleel needs just a little more attack in his dance, Len thinks.
Bruno: "Mick Jagger can't just be in the face!" It has to be in the feet, he insists. Like Len says, he advises Jaleel to have more drag and more aggression in the footwork.
Score: 22 out of 30
Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy – Paso doble
The TV icon less loose in the jive last week, and really came into the competition. She needs melodic passion and lot of power, "Everything that you're not", her partner bluntly tells her. Maksim is being relentless and has her on the verge of tears during rehearsal - although she denies it - as he criticises her moves.
Bruno: "I loved the flavour of Spain, but you messed up the ending." The slower parts were great but at times he felt Melissa was running instead of being on top of it.
Carrie Ann: "Your best performance by far!" She says they looked stunning together but as soon as she gets into hold it's like Melissa is holding on for dear life.
Len: "I liked it. I was concerned, I thought you'd be unsure and unsteady." Maks fell over at the end, but Len doesn't care as it was a slippery floor. "I'm looking forward to a slower, more lyrical dance," he reveals as Melissa has been given quick numbers every time. Len thinks she would be great at something like the waltz.
Score: 22 out of 30
> 'Dancing with the Stars': Melissa Gilbert taken to hospital
The Super Bowl champion surprised Len with his rumba last week by dancing with warmth and emotion. He's bringing his muscular arms out this week and Peta is excited for it. It's her ploy to lure in the ladies and Bruno. Donald borrows Peta's "old lady" sweater to get the idea of what it feels like to wear a cape while dancing.
Carrie Ann: "What the heck did I just see?!" But her observation is positive and goes on to say it was bizarre, sexy and one of the most memorable moments of this season.
Len: "I never thought I'd get excited seeing a man with his shirt off," he says. "After the show, let's compare tattoos! No-one can accuse you of holding back, you frightened the life out of me. Without doubt, your best dance."
Bruno: "Great guns, Donald!" Bruno describes his performance as muscular, masculine and magnificent. It had power, pride, and a sense of humour that always goes down well with Bruno.
Score: 27 out of 30 (Highest score of the night)
Gladys Knight & Tristan McManus - Tango
The music legend performed the foxtrot last week. This week, she wants to unleash her inner Tina Turner because people perceive her as a goodie two shoes. Gladys was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame many years ago, although it is little known. She jokes if she doesn't dance well to 'Bohemian Rhapsody' by Queen, they may take her accolade away!
Carrie Ann: "By far your most ambitious [dance]," she says. However, Carrie Ann admits it's a hard song to dance to it, and confesses it didn't quite all come together into the piece she was hoping for.
Len: "Good job with the choreography Tristan, and Gladys you coped well." Len says, however, that her feet need to be crisper and her posture was bad. He tells her well done, nevertheless.
Bruno: "You're always a class act," he tells Gladys - but Bruno feels because the tempo and musical phrasing changes all the time in this song, it lacked impact.
Score: 20 out of 30
The actor conquered the salsa last week and received one of the first 10s of the competition. He knows nothing about '80s hairband rock for his Twisted Sister performance, so members of Steel Panther come in to help him out with his look and moves (including 'The Sprinkler').
Len: "It is what it is. You went wrong, you lost timing during the end part." Last week William went wrong too, and Len warns there's a pattern emerging, so tells him that he has got to nail the routine.
Bruno: "Your performance always rocks the house but you did, go off." Bruno says that William cannot be complacent as he has got so much talent.
Carrie Ann: "They go crazy for you for a good reason. You have something very special." However, Carrie Ann advises that William has just got to stay focused on his partner.

> 'Dancing with the Stars' poll: Who danced best in week four?
Roshon Fegan & Chelsea Hightower - Viennese waltz
The Disney star channelled a young Michael Jackson performing to 'I Want You Back' with his samba last week, but this week he needs to get serious. He complains that Chelsea is making him feel sad and mad in an impromptu rap, because he is getting steps wrong in rehearsal. He wants to hear three words, "Good job, dog", from Len.
Len: "Good job, dog." As Roshon celebrates with a victory dance, Len says it was performed with style and panache. However he would have liked to see him cross his feet with the reverse turn, and there was a stumble he noticed.
Bruno: "You're flying so high you can touch the sky!" Bruno says he loved how the actor extended and linked everything in a beautiful way.
Carrie Ann: It was like the climax of a Disney movie for Carrie Ann. "You from the men are the best dancer," she says. Roshon is more excited that she called him a man and not a boy than anything else.
Score: 26 out of 30
They're performing 'School's Out', but as rehearsal begin Maria realises her feet have been hurting all week. The Extra presenter has fractured her feet and a doctor tells her she cannot dance with broken bones, so she has to be careful with the stress on her feet. Derek reassures her that he can't tell whether she is celebrity or a professional, which she finds charming.
Bruno: Referring to her posture, he tells Maria that her top line is the best. She links well and her staccato action is brilliant. Despite some flaws, he acknowledges that she does have an injury.
Carrie Ann: "You guys have such incredible energy when you dance," the judge enthuses before somehow almost eating her earring and being asked to move on by the show's host.
Len: "[The] tango is mix of aggression and control," he advises. Although the pair didn't quite get the latter, he says it was pretty good - but not right up there with the best.
Score: 26 out of 30
Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff - Tango
The musician raised Carrie Ann's heart rate last week, but not his position on the leader board. Karina wants his stage personality to come through in their dance. Gavin is weak in rehearsal, and she wants it to be solid and concrete. There are days when she wants to kill him because he won't be quiet and searches for duct tape. "Be like a bulldozer. Drive this thing," she tells him before they perform to 'Paint It Black'.
Bruno: Bruno thinks that Gavin's train was bad, and his shoulders kept going up. "It felt like watching a turtle". He also complains that Gavin was messy on the corner.
Carrie Ann: She says she felt like she was watching Johnny Depp on the stage, and the fact that Gavin stayed in character meant she didn't notice as many flaws. His shoulders were strange admittedly.
Len: "I liked it. I didn't like it that much, but I liked it." It had flair and attitude - but he says Gavin has got to tuck his bum under.
Score: 23 out of 30
