'Dancing With the Stars': Week 5 is liiiiiiiiiiiive!

Update: Annie’s recap is liiiiiiive!

How great is our nation? The ballroom is about to tell us. We’re back, DANCMSTRs, for Week 5 of Planet Mirrorballus madness. In honor of Patriots’ Day, tonight’s show is all about the U.S.A., so count on Len feeling crustier and more British than ever. Chat here during/after the show, then come back later for my full episode recap. As always, nominate your Hidden Gems in the comments.

If you missed it last week, listen to my post-results chat with Tom Bergeron. As he points out, “If I can send you video from my car, the least I can do is give you audio from my dressing room.” Tom and I discuss the risk and eventual payoff of transforming the ballroom into a symphony hall for Classical Night and the chances of an eventual DWTS pajama party (roughly: “a snowball’s chance in hell”).

Press play on the little triangle above. Be sure to stick around ’til the bitter end when I release a lovely and ladylike snort!
