Fierce 5 Visit 'Dancing With The Stars' To Backup Shawn Johnson (VIDEO)

Shawn Johnson got a little help from her friends Monday night, calling on the Fierce 5 to join her in the "Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars" finale.

Team USA gold medalists Gabby Douglas, McKayla Maroney, Aly Raisman, Kyla Ross, and Jordyn Wieber accompanied Johnson and her dance partner, Derek Hough, in a supersize freestyle routine that earned a perfect score from the judges in the penultimate episode of the season.

"I'm a bit emotional tonight," Johnson told USA Today after the performance. "But it means the world to me to have them out here."

The 2008 Olympic gold medalist retired in June after failing to qualify for the 2012 London Games, the Los Angeles Times notes. She relished the opportunity to reunite with Team USA, as noted by her partner in the clip above.

"This season has been like Shawn's redemption," Hough said. "What better way to end the season than the way she would finish as if she was in the Olympics, and that's with her teammates."

The final episode of "Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars" airs Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 9 p.m. EST on ABC.
