Brittany Brannon (voiceover): Last week… all of our couples ditched their partners to dance with other celebrities, while being judge by former contestants, for our third annual Partner Ditch week! Sadly, when all of the votes were counted, we saw Jeff Bridges and Justin Timberlake shockingly sent home!

Jennifer Aniston (voiceover): This week, our couples return with a new style they have not yet done, and then they all tackle a fun Lindy Hop marathon for extra helping points from the judges! What in the world will happen tonight? Find out. Live! This is Dancing with the Stars!

The opening sequence is shown. Christina and Jonathan perform a drop-and-roll. Jeff jokes around with Cheryl. Bill lifts up Anna. Jesse spins Kym. Jodie and Tony perform an elegant pose. Morgan and Edyta also do a graceful pose. Elizabeth and Neil do a sultry pose. Alec spins Linda gracefully. Katherine and Maksim perform a sexy move. Conan tries to give a good move but Lauren is laughing too much. P!nk and Louis do a dramatic, Paso style move. Joan and Corky pretend to do a sultry pose. Kelly and Derek perform a sexy move.

Brittany: Hello and welcome to Dancing with the Stars! I'm Brittany Brannon!
Jennifer: And I am Jennifer Aniston! Well, tonight, our celebrities are back with their respective partners and are dancing a dance they haven’t done yet! BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! They will also be dancing a Lindy Hop marathon by the end of the night!
Brittany: We’re so excited for tonight! So, please welcome our stars!

The celebrity couples come down the stairs in this order: Jodie Foster, Christina Applegate, P!nk, Morgan Freeman, Elizabeth Gillies, Matthew Morrison, Kelly Rowland, Bill Clinton, Katherine Heigl, and Jesse Eisenberg.

Jennifer: Wow! Don’t these guys look interesting! Which dance is up first, Brittany?
Brittany: First up tonight is the woman who last week danced with our former President, yet slipped to the bottom of the leaderboard. Can she redeem herself tonight? Its actress Jodie Foster and her partner, Tony Dovolani!

In her VT, Jodie is honored to have danced with Bill, but is happy to be back with Tony. Tony is glad she made it through! Together, they create a Samba with a spunky twist!

Voiceover: Dancing the Samba, Jodie Foster and her partner, Tony Dovolani.

Jodie is in a light brown Samba dress, Tony is in an unbuttoned tan dress shirt. The pair dances to “The House That Jack Built” by Aretha Franklin. Once finished, they walk to Brittany.

Brittany: Great job, Jodie! And now, we'll introduce our second guest judge of the season, Ryan Lane, who comes to us after winning the guest judging contestant last season! Welcome Ryan! Time for the comments! Judges?
Natalie: That WAS spunky, like you described! I love the R&B feel it had, which is near impossible for a Samba! Great job Jodie, and same to you Tony!
Ryan Lane: This is easily your strongest latin dance to date!
Valerie: Wow, Jodie! You're certainly improving! Keep it up because I want you here further in for a while!
Brittany: Great start to the week! Up you go to Jennifer!

The couple runs up to Jennifer.

Jennifer: What a start to the week. Awesome, you guys! Let's get the scores.

Will the judges please reveal their scores?

Natalie Sanders: 7
Ryan Lane: 8
Valerie Hashburntar: 7

Total: 22

Jennifer: Nice scores! Back to Brittany.

Brittany: Thanks Jennifer! Next up is the man who teamed up with our two-time Oscar winning actress last week to provide a deadly Argentine Tango that didn’t seem to ignite the judges. Can he light their fire this week? Its Former US President Bill Clinton and his partner, Anna Trebunskaya!

In his VT, Bill is glad to be back with Anna again. Anna is scared that their Paso Doble, which is set to futuristic music, won’t impress the judges. But they have to try, at least!

Voiceover: Dancing the Paso Doble, Bill Clinton and his partner, Anna Trebunskaya.

Bill is looking comical wearing a silver suit and tie, Anna is wearing a black and silver Paso outfit with her hair in a weird futuristic style. The pair dances to “Uprising” by Muse. Once finished, they walk to Brittany.

Brittany: WOW, WOW, WOW! Go Bill! I loved it! Judges?
Ryan: Unfortunately, Justin should be here tonight. I'm sorry, this wasn't good at all.
Valerie: The song. The choreography. The outfits. It all could have worked. But, you just weren't doing it for me, Bill. It was better, but still quite poor for this standard.
Natalie: I like how you were trying, Bill, but everyone’s right. It’s still poor quality! Please keep trying though! I have no doubt that you can make it to next week!
Brittany: Up you go to Jennifer!

The couple walks up to Jennifer.

Jennifer: That may have been the most entertaining dance of the season! Let’s see the scores!

Will the judges please reveal their scores?

Natalie Sanders: 5
Ryan Lane: 5
Valerie Hashburntar: 6

Total: 16

Jennifer: BOO! We wanted higher scores, you guys! Back to Brittany!

Brittany: Thanks Jen. Next is the woman who provided one of her strongest, and sultriest, dances of the week last week when she danced a Paso Doble with a contestant that surprisingly got the boot on Sunday. Will she see the same fate this week? Its singer P!nk and her partner, Louis van Amstel!

In her VT, P!nk is really upset that Justin is gone, saying that someone else should’ve left besides him! Aside from this, the show must go on. Louis is having fun getting to know the softer and more tender side of P!nk while training for their emotional dance this week.

Voiceover: Dancing the Rumba, P!nk and her partner, Louis van Amstel.

P!nk is in a white, drape-like dress, Louis is in an unbuttoned white dress shirt. The pair dances to “Come Home” by OneRepublic and Sara Bareilles. Once finished, they walk to Brittany.

Brittany: I absolutely loved it! And your guest judge is none other than NFL star, and Season 45 finalist, Daunte Culpepper! Guys, shoot away!
Valerie: P!nk, I know we've had our problems before, but you have finally won me over! I am so impressed and a dance like that could fast-track you to the final!
Natalie: Wow! This just adds to the list of one of the most inspirational dances we’ve ever seen on this show! I can’t believe how completely vulnerable you let yourself be this week, P!nk! Amazing!
Ryan: One word. PERFECTION!
Brittany: Well up you go to Jennifer!

The couple walks up to Jennifer.

Jennifer: Oh, look at me, I’m up here about to mess up my make up. Haha! Anyways, let's get the scores.

Will the judges please reveal their scores?

Valerie Hashburntar: 10

Jennifer: HELL YEAH! WOW! The first PERFECT score of the season! Congrats! Back to Brittany!

Brittany: Thanks Jen! And congrats to P!nk! Well deserved! Our next star is the woman who last week, did a sexy Paso with Jesse Eisenberg to earn her first 10 of the season! Can she earn one on her own? Time to see! Its actress Elizabeth Gilles and her partner, Neil Haskell!

In her VT, Liz is glad to be back with Neil. She hopes her Foxtrot does well, with a new modern song. Neil is impressed with Liz’s drive this week!

Voiceover: Dancing the Foxtrot, Elizabeth Gillies and her partner, Neil Haskell.

Elizabeth is wearing a grey dress, Neil is in a grey suit with silver tie. The pair dances to “Unfriend You” by Greyson Chance. Once finished, they walk to Brittany.

Brittany: Nice one, Liz! Time for comments! Judges?
Natalie: It kills me to say this, but this dance didn’t really do it for me… It just seemed a little unmemorable. Sorry guys!
Ryan: Great interpretation of the lyrics, and another great performance. Well done.
Valerie: What a shame Elizabeth, I didn't feel it. I didn't think the music was right tonight and it wasn't working in your fluidity of the overall dance.
Brittany: Up you go to Jennifer!

The couple walks up to Jennifer.

Jennifer: Man, some tough comments tonight! Let's get the scores.

Will the judges please reveal their scores?

Jennifer: Damn! Some tough scores, too! Back to Brittany.

Brittany: Thanks Jen! Next tonight is the woman who last week probably caught a chill when her dress opened up, button after button, and did an Argentine Tango with Jeff Bridges, who was sent home. Will she be subject to more coldness tonight? Its actress Christina Applegate and her partner, Jonathan Platero!

In her VT, Christina was sad to see her partner Jeff sent home. But, she must focus on her dance this week: a new Argentine Tango to a very new song by a huge artist! Jonathan has trouble making an Argentine Tango to the song, but by the end, he thinks he’s done it!

Voiceover: Dancing the Argentine Tango, Christina Applegate and her partner, Jonathan Platero.

Christina is wearing a see through black dress with her hair down, Jonathan is in an unbuttoned black dress shirt. The pair dances to “Who Run The World” by Beyoncé. Once finished, they walk to Brittany.

Brittany: SEX-Y! WHOO-HOO! Loved it! Go Christy! Let's get the comments.
Ryan: Your best dance so far!
Natalie: Haha! I love the feministic twist you tried to put into the Argentine Tango! Anyways, it was actually very unique in a good way. I loved the lifts and intricate steps! Good job!
Valerie: Dramatic, exciting, hot, sultry, I LOVED IT! Christina, keep it up, because you could go a long, long way!
Brittany: Well up you go to Jen!

The couple walks up to Jennifer.

Jennifer: WOW! That was freaking awesome! Great job, Christy! Let's get the scores.

Will the judges please reveal their scores?

Jennifer: No! Those scores MUST be higher! Back to Brittany!

Brittany: Thanks Jen! Our next dance tonight is from the woman who became a She Wolf last week for her Paso Doble with Matthew Morrison, which got her a second place finish! Can she do even better this week? Let’s see. Its actress Katherine Heigl and her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy!

In her VT, Katherine is so excited to be back with Maksim again! Instantly, they begin making what Maksim calls “Katherine’s breakthrough dance”. Katy feels the pressure to do well!

Brittany: God, one hot dance after another tonight! Geez! Let’s see what the judges thought of the dance.
Valerie: Maksim knew what he was doing here, and you followed the rules brilliantly. It was steamy and saucy and I felt the dance tonight, you could go a long way!
Ryan: You two make freaky look sexy. My favorite performance from you so far!
Natalie: I think this dance will haunt my dreams for the rest of my life! Haha! It was so awesome. You were both in synch, both committed to the dance, and both gave 110%! Great week for you guys!

Jennifer: I feel like we’ve seen those exact same scores earlier tonight! Haha! Back to Brittany!

Brittany: Thanks Jen! Next up is the man who broke out of his shell last week to deliver a Paso Doble with Elizabeth that Daunte Culpepper deemed as perfect! Can he keep his streak alive tonight? Its actor Jesse Eisenberg and his partner, Kym Johnson!

In his VT, Jesse is much more comfortable being back with Kym, and he is glad to still be dancing! This week, he lets his inner nerd out for an emotional Rumba which Kym thinks will be Jesse’s greatest dance to date. Jesse hopes the same for his dance!

Voiceover: Dancing the Rumba, Jesse Eisenberg and his partner, Kym Johnson.

Jesse has his hair slicked back and has on a white dress shirt with bow-tie and suspenders. He’s even wearing glasses. Kym is dressed as a preppy school girl with her hair down. The pair dances to “Welcome To My Life” by Simple Plan. Once finished, they walk to Brittany.

Brittany: Wow, Jesse! I’m about to cry! Let's see what the judges thought.
Natalie: I’m about to cry too! I totally got the ‘outcast/reject’ theme of the dance, and I personally loved it! Great job!
Valerie: Jesse, I still don't think you are amazing but that dance was an improvement for you. Well done, most definitely a new leaf!
Ryan: It was good, but it wasn't great.
Brittany: Well, up you go to Jen!

The couple walks up to Jennifer.

Jennifer: Aww, we wanted higher scores! Back to Brittany.

Brittany: Thanks Jen! Next up we have the man who danced with Katherine to turn in some of his sexiest dances to date! Can he continue to drive our ladies wild this week? Its actor and singer Matthew Morrison and his partner, Joy Spears!

In his VT, he’s surprised to see Justin eliminated! Joy is glad that Matthew didn’t go home. This week, they work on what seems to be their funnest dance to date!

Natalie: This has to be the best dance of the season! It was so energetic, fun, in synch… Let me stop rambling… It was PERFECT!

Jennifer: I can’t believe it! The second perfect score OF THE NIGHT! Amazing! Back to Brittany.

Brittany: Thanks Jen! Next up the woman whose scores took sort of a hit last week when she did an Argentine Tango with an acting legend, landing her in second to last place. We really hope she makes a comeback this week! Its singer Kelly Rowland and her partner, Derek Hough!

In her VT, Kelly is sad that Justin was sent home. She wishes it was her instead, seeing as she was in the bottom-two with him. She hopes that she and Derek can make a perfect comeback this week!

Voiceover: Dancing the Viennese Waltz, Kelly Rowland and her partner, Derek Hough.

Kelly is in a light tan dress, Derek is in a light tan dress shirt with brown vest and tie. The pair dances to “Fallin” by Alicia Keys. Once finished, they walk to Brittany.

Valerie: This was perfection. Utter perfection. The fluidity and the movements were just spellbinding; I hope you go a long, long way, Kelly!
Ryan: This dance was beautiful, just like the woman who danced it right now.
Natalie: I hate to be the odd woman out, but, for me… It made me a little dizzy. There was a big amount of repetitious moves that I just didn’t really care for. Sorry!
Brittany: Well, up you go to Jen!

The couple walks up to Jennifer.

Jennifer: Oh Natalie! Why’d you have to ruin things? Oh well. Time for scores!

Will the judges please reveal their scores?

Natalie Sanders: 9

Valerie Hashburntar: 10

Total: 29

Jennifer: Awesome scores… and a 9! Oh well, great job! Back to Brittany!

Brittany: Thanks Jen! Next up, before our marathon, we have the man who was Kelly’s partner last week, who ended up bringing down her scores with his ‘style’ and ‘personality’ according to Natalie. Can he improve this time around? Its acting legend Morgan Freeman and his partner, Edyta Sliwinska!

In his VT, Morgan chuckles at the fact that he is now in WEEK FIVE. He never thought he’d make it as far! Edyta designs a very hip and old-fashioned Jive for Morgan which he enjoys performing. He hopes this week pleases!

Voiceover: Dancing the Jive, Morgan Freeman and his partner, Edyta Sliwinska.

Morgan is dressed as a soldier from the 50’s, complete with cap and light brown dress shirt with tie, Edyta is in a short light brown dress and pigtails. The pair dances to “Bad, Bad Leroy Brown” by Jim Croce. Once finished, they walk to Brittany.

Brittany: I really liked it! Let's see what the judges thought.
Natalie: As nice as it was, it sadly wasn’t very fluid. You seemed pretty stiff and awkward, and the Jive requires you to loosen up, which you sadly didn’t do. I’m sorry, Morgan! I hope you’re around for a comeback next week!
Valerie: Wow. That was sure interesting! It wasn't a brilliant dance but you made it work with your fun entertainment.
Ryan: A classy Jive, and your best latin dance so far. Good job.
Brittany: Well, up you go to Jen!

The couple walks up to Jennifer.

Jennifer: We’re all very anxious, so let’s just see the scores!

Will the judges please reveal their scores?

Jennifer: Great job, Morgan! Back to Brittany to start the Lindy Hop Marathon! Oh boy!

Brittany: Thanks, Jen! Well, it’s time to start our Lindy Hop Marathon! Ooh! Now, before we begin, let's watch a video of how our couples prepared for the marathon.

We see the VT. Christina is having a little trouble with some of the lifts Jonathan is throwing at her. Bill is at his wit’s end trying to get through the 4-minute long routine. Jesse is a little nervous that he’ll bump into someone while dancing, Jodie has the same worry. Morgan is a little exhausted due to his Jive. Elizabeth hopes she can please with her take on the Lindy Hop. Katherine plans some nice lifts with Maks. Matthew is worried he will drop Joy with the lifts she’s planned. P!nk wants to make first place and out stage everybody! Kelly is excited to be in the competition! At the end of the VT, Jennifer and Brittany are on stage.

Brittany: Now, here we go! We've all been waiting all night for this, so let's get started! Please welcome all ten of our couples!

All ten couples hit the floor in various colored ‘Lindy-Hop inspired’ dresses and shirts. Christina is in blue, Bill is in red, Jesse is in green, Jodie is in black, Morgan is in yellow, Elizabeth is in brown, Katherine is in orange, Matthew is in white and P!nk is in pink (coincidentally), and Kelly is in purple. The pros are in the same colors as their partners. The band begins playing “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy” by the Andrew Sisters.

Round 1 begins. Most of the stars start out with comedic routines. Jodie and Bill ditch their partners and dance together again. Morgan pretends that Edyta is a wind-up toy and pretends to crank her back. Bill and Anna are first out.

Round 2 begins. Everyone starts to get serious. They don’t want to go. Jesse and Kym do some spectacular lifts and almost knock over Matthew and Joy. It is Morgan and Edyta who leave next.

Round 3 begins. Katherine jokingly hops over Maksim’s back and he pulls her under him in an amazing trick. Jodie starts to lose steam. Jodie and Tony are out next.

Round 4 begins.
Elizabeth is lifted on top of Neil with only one hand while everyone else seems jealous. Jesse messes up a move which results in his elimination.

Round 5 begins. Christina and Jonathan try to imitate the move Liz and Neil just did. Matthew is swirling Joy around with a lift. Kelly and Derek are out next, though.

Round 6 begins. P!nk and Louis pretend to be soldiers by saluting and doing a complicated handshake/lift. The audience is impressed. Elizabeth and Neil are eliminated.

Round 7 begins. All four dances create a large circle where the women are all lifted while the men hold the women up. The crowd is amazed by the lift. Yet, P!nk and Louis are booted out.

Round 8 begins. By now, it’s dead serious, but not without it’s perks. Katherine and Christina team up to surprisingly flip Matthew in the air while all three partners watch while laughing. Christina and Jonathan are shockingly out next.

The final round begins. Katherine and Maksim are doing lift after lift while Matthew and Joy are performing charming steps around the stage. Matthew and Joy are revealed to be the winners and are awarded the 10 extra points, Katherine and Maksim still get 9 points, though.

Jennifer: Wow, great job Matthew and Joy! Judges, it's time to ask: why did you choose Matt to win the marathon? Natalie, we'll go to you.
Natalie: I think it’s because Matthew really captured the essence of the Lindy Hop throughout, yet, so did Katherine. It was a hard decision!
Jennifer: I bet it was! Here's a look at all of the dances from tonight!
