Dancing With the Stars recap: See who earned the lowest score.
Greetings, ballroom aficionados! Season 30 of Dancing With the Stars is underway, and although the crowd is still absent due to the epidemic, the gaudy Tyra Banks gowns aren’t! The fact that the DWTS doors remain locked to the outer world — including journalists like me who look forward to sitting backstage and eating the free pigs in a blanket — is a serious disappointment. At the very least, Len Goodman is back on the judges’ panel, and a Chmerkovskiy is in the building!
Let’s get started with the program! Tyra, who’s dancing with who?
Melanie C and Gleb Savchenko
Sporty Spice didn’t waste any time leaning on the old library by doing the cha-cha to “Wannabe” after the obligatory package reminding us that she won the globe with the Spice Girls (and loves to make funny sounds). “You danced it absolutely fantastic,” Len Goodman, the adjudicator, remarked. Derek Hough said, “You have amazing legs.” Agreed. Out of a possible 40 points, you get a 27.
The Miz and Witney Carson.
He’s a two-time WWE Champion, in case you didn’t know. Neither do I. But, after all those Flying Elbows in the ring, he understands how to move, so his cha-cha was really charming-charming. (However, the clothing must be returned to Tony Manero’s closet immediately.) Bruno Tonioli shouted, “Witney, you’ve tamed the beast!” “A well-oiled love machine, light on his feet.” Carrie Ann Inaba, who was about to show off her daughters, said, “You were amazing.” Out of a possible 40 points, you get a 24.
Iman Shumpert and Danielle
The concert should have started with this jive to OutKast’s “Hey Ya.” The baller was a hoot to see, and his checkered green ensemble was adorbs. So what if the judges had a different opinion? “I’m going to tell it to you as it is,” Tonioli stated. “You were very nimble and light on your feet. You’re a musician.” “You’re the season 30 fly man!” said Inaba. Out of a possible 40 points, you get a 21.
The daughter of Lori Laughlin and Mossimo Giannulli started, “I’m probably best recognized for being an influencer.” Really? At the very least, she confessed to being “caught up in a (college admission) controversy” and that “she’s not trying to play the pity card, simply move ahead and do better.” Her remuneration? Getting Val to join the team as a partner. Wow. She did, however, salsa dance. “It might have been spicier,” Goodman admitted, “but it was clean, clear, and polished.” Out of a possible 40 points, you get a 25.
Jimmie Allen and Emma Slater.
The country music singer aspires to be a country music ambassador and a Mirror Ball winner, which surprised his spouse. According to Tonioli, he then performed the tango in front of a smashed-up red Mercedes that lacked the “stalking cat” vibe. “This dance is inappropriate for your personality. You’re a laid-back kind, aren’t you? “Goodman said. “Relax, I’m sure there’s a lot more talent in there,” says the narrator. Out of a possible 40 points, you get a 22.
Melora Hardin and Artem.
The former Office actress has three advantages: she partnered with last season’s winner, she learned ballet in the past, and she has a fantastic pair of games. So, judges, was her tango just irresistible? “Let’s get started! Oh my goodness, it was incredible. There was light and shadow in that “Hough said. “Girl, we’re keeping an eye on you!” “Excellent lines, great placement,” Tonioli said, “yet you lose balance at moments because of the core.” “However, excellent.” Out of a possible 40 points, you get a score of 26.
Suni Lee and Sasha Farber.
After earning her gold, the first Hmong Olympian wanted pizza! She’s exactly like us, with the exception that she got to attend the Met Gala. She also claims she can’t dance, despite her excellent jive. “You’re fantastic. You are a great fit for ballroom and Latin dance with your abilities “Inaba said. “Girl, everything you’re doing is incredible.” Out of a possible 40 points, you get a 28.
Cody Rigsby and Cheryl Burke.
Unless you ride a Peloton, you won’t recognize this former dancer. And, just so you know, his tango started with him on a stationary bike. “You’re fantastic, and you’ve got a lot of energy. Were you, on the other hand, apprehensive? You were tense and disciplined, “Inaba said. “I’d want to see you unwind.” “There’s a lot of potentials there,” Goodman remarked. “In the tango, hold on a bit tighter, but I’ll tell you what, you’re one to watch.” Out of a possible 40 points, you get a 24.
Amanda Kloots and Alan Bersten.
When her husband, Broadway actor Nick Cordero, died following a lengthy struggle with COVID-19, the co-host of The Talk became a national icon during the epidemic. She cried as she said how she thinks about him every day and how he would want her to “keep going.” And she did it in a big way. “That was jam-packed with tango information. It was under assault. It exuded assurance. That was a fantastic first dance, “Goodman said. “You were dancing like an angel,” Inaba remarked. Then Banks inquired whether she sensed the presence of her late husband in the ballroom. Out of a possible 40 points, you get a 28.
Martin Kove and Britt Stewart.
Starting his performance with an in-character monologue about dread and concern in the ballroom, the evil karate instructor from The Karate Kid and Cobra Kai stunned the audience. He then proceeded to perform an extremely awful — dance? — but that doesn’t mean he should come in first, second, or third. Man, he’s a national treasure. Hough said, “Cobra Kai forever!” “I was enthralled by that introductory address.” “I believe we need to improve on the content,” Tonioli added. “Before we go into full production, we need tidy up the script.” 13 points out of a possible 40
Kenya Moore and Brandon Armstrong
The 50-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta star is eager to live her greatest life. Her companion complimented her on her appearance and said she reminded her of Beyonce! But can she also dance like her? “You’re dressed like a queen out there,” Inaba remarked. “You just need to relax and maintain proper posture. You did an excellent job.” “It had the kind of charm and elegance you want to see in a foxtrot,” Goodman said. “Way to go.” Out of a possible 40 points, you get a score of 26.
Christine Chiu and Pasha Pashkov.
Before they performed the tango, the Bling Empire celebrity and self-described DWTS superfan wanted to see her partner’s abs. He should have reminded her that he is the greatest choreographer/teacher on the program and that if she doesn’t do it correctly, he would “dislocate your rib.” Inaba remarked, “You’re like a gem in the rough.” “Your back is out of this world.” “Wow, this is fantastic. The frame is really stunning “Hough said. “Get a little closer to the earth.” Out of a possible 40 points, you get a 25.
Matt James and Lindsay Arnold.
In Crocs, the season 25 bachelor arrived at rehearsal. This isn’t a good indication. He did, however, make his cha-cha seem nice (though his bright teal suit did a lot of the work). “I’d like to see a little more hip movement,” Goodman remarked. “You’ve heard the saying about large feet. They are visible to us. That is all there is to it. Get rid of the scumbags, “Hough added. Out of a possible 40 points, you get a 24.
Brian Austin Green and Sharna Burgess.
The veteran DWTS pro was dating the actor from 90210 before they were officially paired up for the new season, so there’s no difficulty finding chemistry here. “My teacher always taught that you should never date your dancing partner, but I’m dating mine. It’s effective! “Hough said. “You have to work on your feet,” Hough said. “Having said that, this competition is taking on a life of its own. You did an excellent job.” Out of a possible 40 points, you get a 24.
Jojo Siwa and Jenna Johnson.
Unsurprisingly, the show’s first same-sex pair was revealed at the conclusion of the two-hour debut. “Can you tell me who the guy is?” Jenna was the one who asked JoJo. Jenna said “Uh, NO ONE, and that’s the delightful point,” she should have added instead. Let’s get this party started!” Everyone was ecstatic, as expected. “At long last, the game-changing moment has arrived!” Tonioli explained. “I’m so high I’m afraid I’m going to hit the rafter.” 29 out of 40 possible points
