"DWTS" Week 5: Most Memorable Year

The "Most Memorable Year" episode is always going to be, well, memorable. There were some heavy moments on last night's episode but since no one was sent home, we're calling it triumphant.

My early bet, race car driver James Hinchcliffe is still in the running. And did I not say that his dancing would become more natural as the weeks pass? (I did.) Observe his near-perfect-score tango with pro-partner Sharna Burgess, in which he relives smashing his car on the race track:

The rest of the dancing was pretty meh, so I'll just cut to the glittery costumed goodness. Amber Rose was made to wear ballroom getups. That's all.

 

What did you think? Does a non-elimination night take off too much pressure? Let us know in the comments and check back for next week's recap!
