The premiere episode kicked off with an exciting and dynamic opening number, featuring all of the celebrities and dancers, along with returning head judge Len Goodman. The night continues with each couple dancing a cha cha, fox trot, jive, tango or quickstep, vying for America’s vote for the first time. There will be no eliminations this week, all couples will move on to week 2.
Judges comments on Mischa’s DWTS Premiere Tango: Carrie Ann: “It is so hard to come out here when you are not a natural dancer, I am so incredibly proud of you and I hope you stay on this journey.” Len: “It is not in my nature to be nasty, but that wasn’t a dance, that was walking. I can’t tell a lie, there was too much walking around, not enough of Tango, fire and attack. It is what it is.” Bruno: “You needed more spark, you have to act like you are on Broadway, reach for the gallery. You looked slightly sedated. Imagine you are dancing for Cinema Scope 3D.”
Judges scores: Carrie Ann: 5 Len: 5 Bruno: 6 = Total 16/30
