Disney dazzler! Dancing With The Stars favourite Zendaya, 16, prances like a pro during judge Len Goodman's difficult side-by-side challenge

Head judge Len Goodman insisted it would be their toughest challenge yet.

And so it proved as the celebrities struggled to keep up with the professional couples in this week's special side-by-side challenge.

But Disney dazzler Zendaya lived up to her label as favourite as she gave a performance that left Bruno Tonioli saying she was the best contestant the show has ever had.


Nothing Mickey Mouse about that performance: Disney star Zendaya was told she was as good as a pro on Dancing With The Stars

But before the action began host Tom Bergeron delivered a message about the Boston Marathon bombing.

He said: 'Our thoughts are with everyone in Boston tonight. I have family members and many friends there. My heart is with you.'

Co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet added the 'entire cast has been thinking about you. And, as always, our show is planned in advance and hopefully we can still have an entertaining night of competition for you.'

When the action got underway it was Disney favourite Zendaya and partner Valentin Chmerkosvkiy  who were the stars of the night.


Going toe-to-twinkle toe: They were up against his brother Maks and pro Anna but looked just as good


Passionate: Their chemistry on the dance floor would certainly not pass muster in the average Disney show


Flexible friends: Zendaya had no problem stretching her limbs into the requisite positions during the dance

They held their own next to his brother Maks and partner Anna during the Argentine Tango, and were rewarded with a whopping 29 points, with only Len failing to give a perfect 10.

Bruno camped it up, lathering the sassy 16-year-old with praise before saying she was, 'the ultimate famme fatale. Next to Anna you were as good and as strong. You are the best we've ever had.'

Carrie Ann praised he physicality, saying: 'You're so tall that dance kills your thighs, but you never noticed.'

Len obviously thought it was a particularly tasty performance, saying: 'It was like a lemon tart - sharp and tangy at the top sharp and tasty down below.'


Most triumphant: She was overjoyed when the judges lathered her with effusive praise about her skills


The best: Bruno Tonioli hammed it up as he told her she was the 'ultimate femme fatale'


Where is she going: The actress and singer seemed confident about where she would be on the scoreboard

They were the strand out couple of the night, with the nature of the special challenge meaning technical shortcomings were glaring as they stood toe to twinkle toe with the ballroom champions.

The night kicked off with Ingo Rademacher and Kym Johnson doing the cha cha cha with troupe member Emma Slater and pro Tony.

But their dance to Lady Marmalade failed to win the approval of the judges, who awarded straight 7s for a total of 21.

Len said: 'You've got the flair we need the care. You've got to get the details

Bruno showed his usual flamboyant flair when he told him: 'Lady Marmalade got you in a bit of a jam. Your get the character right so it covers up a lot of technical mistakes.'

Meanwhile Carrie Ann Inaba raised guffaws she she told him: 'You need to work on below the belt.'


In synch: Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff pulled off an impressive routine for the audience


Going commando: The women squealed with delight when the burly footballer crawled around


Talking up her man: Karina claimed she did not believe it was possible for him to pull off this jumping move

Super Bowl winner Jacoby Jones was his usual energetic self as he went about his business against his partner Karina Smirnoff's ex-fiance Maks and his fellow pro Anna.

And he even picked up some pointers, with the Russian telling him to hold his arms above his waist as he was not looking 'masculine' enough.

And it seemed to have an effect, as he ended up scoring 27 points, with Bruno telling him afterwards: 'Masculinity and testosterone oozing from everywhere. Just one point, you have to point your feet.

After an excitedly rambling Carrie Ann told him, 'I love me some Jacoby. You hammered that jive,' she was ribbed by Len.

He said: 'Never thought you were gonna shut up it was like the Gettysburg Address.'


The secret of the ooze: Bruno told him he really came out of his half shell by 'oozing masculinity'


Can I touch: Carrie Ann was so excited by the beefcake's performance she rambled through her comments


Macho man: It is easy to see why the dancer and choreographer was so tongue tied

Under performing boxer Victor Ortiz went for the sympathy vote after revealing he had suffered a break up during the week.

But he channelled his disappointment into his Viennese Waltz, where they danced with Tristan and Emma, and ended up scoring a creditable 21.

The Punch and Judy show continued between Len and Carrie Ann, with the former saying 'if I want another argument I would go home,' as they disagreed over a technical point.

But Bruno was effusive in his praise, saying: 'You're back in the game. You were elegant. You were wonderfully pert and upright.


Boxing clever: Former world champion Victor Ortiz made the canny move of wheeling out a sob story


Floating like a butterfly: After a series of cringeworthy performances Victor finally got his groove back


Len-ding a hand: The head judge was happy to tell the pugilist that he was a contender again

'You only lost it for a couple of seconds. Usually you let it show in your face and this time you rolled with it.'

Last week's best performers Massachusetts native and gymnast Alexandra Raisman and Mark Ballas, were paired with Tony and troupe member Witney Carson for a samba which scored a creditable 25.

Len told her, 'Overall as a performance you came out and you knocked it.'

Bruno said: 'Oh Missy I never knew you could be sassy and saucy. Your technique was very strong.'

And Carrie Ann said: 'I like seeing you bring out your sex kitten, Dance is a very sexy thing.'


Not quite medal worthy: But Olympic gymnastics champion Alexandra Raisman still gave a good showing


Good timing: They fared well when compared to the all professional couple they were dancing with


You sexy thing: Carrie Ann liked seeing her 'sex kitten' side and wants her to take it further

Afterwards she dedicated her performance to her hometown, saying: 'Its so devastating. The Boston Marathon is such a special day its where everyone people come together.

'Its just so heartbreaking that this happened and my heart goes out to everyone back home and anyone else who was affected.'

Sean Lowe and partner Peta Murgatroyd faced off with Tristan and Chelsie in the quickstep, with the reality personality improving on last week, earning straight 8s.

Bruno said: 'What's going on. I have to say up to now you've been fun to watch but you've always been a bit of a lumberjack. Tonight you turned into a swan.'


Dedication: After coming off the floor she dedicated her performance to the people of her hometown Boston


He's got the clap: Bachelor star Sean Lowe gave one of his better performances this week


He's a lumberjack and he's ok: Bruno complimented him and told him he had turned into a swan

Carrie said: You were bold and you were beautiful It was great.'

But Len left the latter open-mouthed and had Bruno in tears of laughter when he told him he turned from a statue into a pigeon.

Trying to explain his metaphor, the irritated head judge said: 'This week you were flying round. I think he's more like a pigeon than a swan. That was you're best dance so far.'

Country favourite Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough danced foxtrot, their first real ballroom dance, and faced off against Anna and troupe member Henry Byalikov.

And despite practice being strained due to Del Boy's perfectionism, they almost got the night's best score with straight 9s,


Perfectionist: But Derek Hough's harsh tutelage enabled Kellie Pickler to get a fantastic score


Pickled bunions: She may have had sore feet from all the practice but it paid off in style on the night


Panel beater: Ever single one of the judges was enthusiastic in their praise for Kellie's performance

After praising Len for coming up with the side-by-side challenge Carrie Ann said: 'That was fabulous you are a million dollar dazzler. I cant believe it was your first ballroom.'

Len was just as enthusiastic, saying: 'That wasn't a foxtrot it was a hot trot. You put the oooh in smooth. You dance like that and I tell you you're in the final.'

Comedian D.L. Hughley was told he was a 'dirty old man' by partner Cheryl Burke due to his overenthusiastic groin thrusts during tango practice, with troupe member Sasha Farber saving the day with his problem solving tuition.

But it did not stop him getting straight sixes, with Len saying: 'It was like a decaf coffee. It was too mild. You got through it okay there were a couple of blunders but it lacked that attack you need in a tango.


Celebrating in style: Kellie used her high score as an excuse to get to grips with football beefcake Jacoby


Dirty old man: Comic D.L. Hughley was warned about his overenthusiastic groin thrusts by Cheryl Burke


Hughley and the news: A disappointed Len Goodman told him his performance was like decaf coffee

Bruno added: 'You got your feet in a muddle and went from a panther to a romper stomper.'

And Carrie Ann said: 'I loved your attention and I loved your focus but side by side I could see the difference. The lack of technique was evident in that one.'

The show ended on a funny note, with Andy Dick delivering a comical paso doble with Sasha and Emma, initially dazzling in a zipline entrance as Zorro before losing his timing when he actually made it to the dance floor, a failing that landed him joint bottom with straight 6s,

Despite the crowd booing the score, the judges justified their scoring during their comments.

Carrie Ann said: 'That entrance will never be forgotten ever. That was the best entrance I've ever seen. Once you lost the cape it fell apart for me.

Len added: It wasn't quite Hollywood, it was nearby. It was more Pasadena than paso doble.'

Bruno claimed it was worthy of its own movie title, saying: ' It was undescribable. It was the attack of the killer cape.'


Saving the day: Andy Dick zip-lined into the arena so he could 'save' his partner through the medium of dance


Caped crusader: But he lost control of his cloak during his crunch performance of the paso doble


Unable to mask his disappointment: He was left feeling deflated after getting a critical spanking
