WKEF-TV ABC 22 News :: News - Good Morning - Dancing Rewind: First Night

Dancing Rewind: First Night

It's the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars.
Twelve stars take the stage in hopes of winning the coveted Mirror Ball trophy.

The show has a few changes this season- with new co-host Erin Andrews, as well as a new band.

Off to a great start with some strong dances....

Leading the night-Charlie White and partner Sharna topped the leader board with 27/30 points with their Contemporary dance.  Charlie is one half of the Olympic gold ice dancing team.  Although he has spent most of his life dancing on ice, his skills seemed to transfer well onto the dance floor.  Very smooth and graceful...of course he is an amazing performer.

To make the competition extra interesting-Charlie's Olympic ice dancing partner is also on the show....Meryl Davis is paired with Maks-and although she received 24/30, she shows just as much potential to be a strong contender.  He Cha Cha Cha was crisp and clean..near perfect technique.  The other competitors have to feel a little intimidated by these two Olympians.

Candice Cameron Bure and partner Mark wowed the judges with their strong contemporary dance.  Her moves were so well placed and beautiful lifts--she is a natural dancer.  25/30    She was such a beloved child star with her roll on Full House--Fun to see her all grown up and come out so strong...definitely one to watch.

What an inspiration--Amy Purdy is the paraplegic snowboarder who just won a bronze medal.  She is paired with Derek Hough-and already off to a great start.  Amazing dancing--her Cha Cha Cha had everyone on their feet  24/30

Off to a rough start....

Billy Dee William is Hollywood royalty.  At 77, he is the oldest on the show.  He entertained with a Star Wars themed dance with partner Emma, but failed to do much dancing or moving at all.  He only got 15 points-so he will need to really step it up next week, and hope that he has a strong enough fan base to pull him through. 

The first elimination is next week--and often times it is not the worst dancer who gets eliminated.  Name recognition and star power can be very important for the first few weeks of the season.
