Meryl Davis and Valentin Chmerkovskiy talk to OTRC.com after week 4 on Dancing With The Stars season 18 on April 7, 2014. - Provided courtesy of OTRC

Dance fans, our world is a jumbled mess this week. Just as we were getting used to the idea of Maks and Meryl, or Nene and Tony, or Cody and Witney ... the rug is pulled out from under all of us.

But it's our own doing, isn't it? It wasn't the producers or the judges who decided the new pairings for this one week only "Switch-Up Night." We did it with our own votes and tweets. With all credit given to head judge Len Goodman, I will dub this "itchy blanket week." Len gave the "Switch-Up" that moniker because he said while it may do the job, it is a little uncomfortable. The good news: no elimination tonight!

Julianne Hough may be making comments that come across as harsh while serving as a guest judge on "Dancing With The Stars," but the former dance pro says it's all in good fun.

Hough made her most recent guest-judging appearance on the April 7 episode of season 18, during week 4 of the competition. She criticized professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy's performance with "switch-up" partner Danica McKellar, saying that he was merely going through the motions and that she wanted the switch to be over so he could return to real partner Meryl Davis.
