5. Meryl Davis Gives Partner Maks a Little Spanking

Maks and Meryl started off their swing dance amid the rest of the contestants in the upper level break area before running down the stairs to the dance floor. Their routine was filled with tons of lifts and acrobatics … very impressive. Though the judges point out a couple mistakes, judge Carrie Ann Inaba thought it was fantastic that Meryl has dancer Maks “working his butt off.” In turn, Meryl spun her partner around to give his booty a little love tap.

Their final score was a 25 out of 30.
