DWTS Recap and Predictions From Guest Blogger Mark Ballas: Week 5

Dancing with the Stars pro Mark Ballas lost his chance to win another disco ball trophy after his partner Shannen Doherty was booted off during week 2, but the good news is you can see (and read) him every week here on Hollyscoop!

Here's Mark's professional opinion about Week 5 of the show and the contestants:

Jake and Chelsie:
Jake is really improving, in my opinion samba is the hardest Latin dance, because it really has to bounce, I thought Jake could have bounced a bit more. But all in all improved and he really went for it, which I love....

Evan and Anna:
I feel like the judges were way too hard on Evan tonight, I thought his samba had rhythm and he hit some superb lines with a great chemistry with Anna. I'm sure he will bounce back next week, they are definitely a couple to watch!

Niecy and Louis:
I thought this piece was so great -- technical, sharp, with a touch of comedy, I thought the choreography was clever and even though there was a Comedy element, the dancing didn't suffer. I think Louis is doing a great job with Neicy, loved this routine.

Erin and Maks:
I thought this routine was fun and flirty -- all the things a samba should be. I think Maks is doing a great job with Erin, I'm sure all the ladies at home loved this piece. Lol

Chad and Cheryl:
Huge improvement this week from Chad, this was for sure his best dance. His most controlled and contained, a firey chemistry between them, I liked this very much...

Derek and Nicole: BAM BOOM. This was OUTTA HERE! Perfect In my opinion...... HOME RUN

Pam and Damien:
I thought Pam’s dancing improved from last week, this is a hard dance and I thought she was seductive, sexy and executed it very well, this was also her strongest dance for timing and musicality too...
