OK, I have to know, readers. Do you watch Dancing With the Stars and were you blown away by Monday night’s premier? As I’ve written before, it is one of the very few TV shows I look forward to, and the performances opening Season 14 completely wowed me. In no previous season has the first night dancing been better as indicated by the judge’s scores. Nines on the first go….amazing!
Surprisingly, there wasn’t a really bad dancer in the group, and if history repeats itself each celebrity will get better as the weeks go on which means the judges are going to have a very hard time weeding anyone out. Audience voting will likely play a huge part in who stays and who goes.
Based on first performances, Roshon is going to be hard to beat. He is Michael Jackson with his loose joints, great moves and tremendous energy plus he had the audience dancing in their seats. He may have to tone down the hiphop element in his approach to please Len, and I’m betting that will happen as he gets into the groove of ballroom dancing.
Katherine Jenkins is a thing of beauty and is likely to get very high marks from the judges. I can’t imagine the waltz not being a dance made for her. She’s a classical singer with a Marilyn Monroe look which makes for an interesting contrast.
Jaleel and Donald may not make it to the end, but they have great moves and are only going to get better.
Gladys Knight made my heart sing by exceeding all expectations, and the audience loved her. Talk about some moves!
Martina Navratilova, have you ever seen such a transformation? Who knew she could be so glamorous, and I have to confess I’m pulling for her to stay in the competition because she is one of my on court heroes.
Melissa, Gavin, Maria, Sherri, Jack? They did OK, too, but I’m not sure they have what it takes to stay in the competition. Of course, I’ve been fooled before when audience response has ousted a better dancer for the more popular participant so we’ll just have to see how the competition unfolds.
You can bet I’ll be watching. How about you?
