DWTS 13, Week 5: JR on top; Kardashian and Arquette tie for second

Fire up the flux capacitor and bring back the big shoulders, big hair and bright colors for glam rockers of the 1980s. Yes, it was the 80’s week tonight on “Dancing with the Stars” and although Ricki Lake made it big in that decade, she fell from the top spot. It was J.R. Martinez and his partner Karina Smirnoff who were number one with Robert Kardashian and his partner and Cheryl Burke and David Arquette and Kym Johnson who were tied for second.

Lake made a splash on the silver screen as the lead in the 1988 “Hairspray.” She played a heavy set girl who could dance and changed the attitudes of others. Yet tonight, her foxtrot to Phil Collins’ “Easy Lover” only received 24 points.

J.R. Martinez was the only celebrity to receive a 10 (from Bruno Tonioli) with his samba to “Conga” by Gloria Estefan. His score was 28.

The big surprise of the night were the guys who came in second. Robert Kardashian with Cheryl Burke proved that he can dance with his rumba to “Hello” by Lionel Richie. Kardashian got a nine from Carrie Ann Inaba and eights from the other two judges. David Arquette who had a breakthrough last week in terms of characterization on the stage, turned in a 25 with a 9 from the tough head judge Len Goodman for his tango with Kym Johnson.

During the live shows, the judges will give each couple a score based on several factors, including technical execution. But the judges’ scores alone do not decide a couple’s fate.

Phone lines, text votes (AT&T customers only) and online voting will open at the top of each performance show so that viewers can vote for their favorites. Phone and text lines will stay open until 30 minutes after the end of the show in your local time zone. Online voting will remain open until 11AM (Eastern Time)/ 8AM (Pacific Time) the following day.

In the Dancing with the Stars Results Show, the couple with the lowest combined score from judges and viewer votes will be eliminated from the competition. The scoring is divided evenly between the judges and the viewers at home, ensuring unpredictable outcomes at the end of every show. When the final two couples remain, the ultimate dance-off will determine who wins the trophy.

Viewers can vote via phone and text message for their favorites ONLY on the night they perform; online voting ends at 11AM ET/8AM PT the day following the performances. The Dancing with the Stars Results Show will premiere the week of competition on Tuesday, September 20 at 8|7c.

To vote by text message, text the word “VOTE” to your favorite couple’s number below from your AT&T phone. Message and data rates may apply.


Lines open at the beginning of each show for viewers to phone and text vote for their favorite couples and will stay open for 30 minutes after the end of the show in each time zone. The whole country can vote.

One (or more) couple(s) will be knocked out of the competition each week there is a results show. The couple with the lowest overall score is knocked out of the competition.

The scoring and format of the show is unique to the series and is not based on a standard dance championship.
