Anna Trebunskaya reviewed the Dancing With The Stars premiere last night at ABC! Below is her take on these contestants. Also note that she is worried about Bill Nye the most.
Keyshawn Johnson: Cool tricks! A wonderful play on Keyshawn’s strength and very strong content. Keyshawn, you got to get out of your head and let loose! Work a bit on the posture as well and you will do you well in all the ballroom dances to come this season. Oh yeah, and listen to your teacher.
Christina Milian: A very athletic contemporary routine. She had great expression that improved through out the routine. I agree with the judges though: Christina needs to showcase more confidence in her dancing, but she’s off to a good start!
Bill Engvall: A really strong Foxtrot routine for Bill. Lots of content and confidence. Must be the fact that he rehearsed in the You Can Dance studio in Hermosa Beach, Calif., (Yes, that’s my studio and I’m shameless about plugging it in). Bill, work on your transitions and smoothness, but you’re doing fantastic!
Valerie Harper: Wow! That performance brought tears to my eyes. What a role model to anyone! She’s a stunning woman and a very elegant dancer. No other words…
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi: Looking hot mama! Really fun Cha Cha “pocket rocket” style (to echo Len’s comment). Snooki actually had good Cha Cha technique and good rhythm. Stay focused and keep improving! You’re a natural performer.
Overall, a really good level of dancing from all the competitors. It will be very exciting to see everyone develop and improve. I’m concerned about Bill Nye. He has the lowest score from the judges, but what makes “DWTS” the show it is is the audience voting factor, so you never know! Like I said, exciting!
More at ABC. Let us know if you agree with her review.
Also, Good Morning America has posted a video recap and Melissa Rycroft weighs in on the dances too! She says this season is reminding her of the all-star season. You can watch it HERE.
Official DWTS Radio has been posting some new interviews with the cast as well. When you get time, be sure to take them in too.
