Upon being reunited with partner Witney Carson, pop singer Cody Simpson decided to serenade her with a little song he wrote for her. Witney was very flattered, especially since Cody Simpson made the song up just for her. Then, of course, the two jumped into rehearsals. This week they danced to The Lion King soundtrack and Simpson played Simba. While the judges felt his dancing was wonderful, guest judge Donny Osmond wanted to see more emotion.

Last week, Nene Leakes had to switch partners and was given Derek Hough as her dance teacher. When Nene brought up some of what she learned with Hough to Tony, he was not happy and admitted to being a bit jealous. He told the cameras that of course it doesn’t make him happy to see his partner dance with someone else. Nene had had enough of Tony’s “attitude” for the day and left rehearsals. She told the cameras that it’s a good thing they’re not married or they’d be divorced.
The two of course, patched things up and Nene became very emotional after a beautiful dance where she received her best score to date, a 36 out of 40.
8. James Maslow Gave His Best Performance Yet

9. Meryl & Maks Danced to The Jungle Book
Tonight was a big deal for the couple … Maks even shaved his face. In all seriousness, the couple gave a spirited and fun performance as they danced to the soundtrack of The Jungle Book.
