This can’t bode good for a show’s 11th year: On Monday’s premiere of Dancing with a Stars, the judges didn’t seem to be in a giving mood when it came time to palm out a initial set of scores. Competitors like Victor Espinoza, Chaka Khan, Paula Deen, Kim Kolziak, and Gary Busey left a dance building with a sad volume of 4s and 5s, creation a show’s 21st deteriorate expel demeanour like, well, a least-talented organisation ever.
Well good news, Ms. Kolziak — we aren’t a misfortune “star” ever to explosve on week 1. That eminence goes to Master P in deteriorate 2, when judges Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli any gave his paso doble a small 2. (Carrie Ann Inaba wasn’t that most some-more forgiving; she slapped him with a 4). Other prior premiere week low scores were warranted by Kelly Monaco in deteriorate 1 (her strut got a 13), Tucker Carlson in deteriorate 3 (his cha-cha got a 12), and Billy Ray Cyrus in deteriorate 4 (his cha-cha got a 13).
Maybe that’s since Judge Julianne Hough seemed remarkably sanguinary after a two-hour premiere. If anything, Monday’s premiere only seemed like aged times!
“I was a little surprised since we haven’t left that low in a integrate of seasons,” Hough told reporters after a show. “It kind of brought me behind to deteriorate 3, deteriorate 4 when there was so most room to grow, where a scores were a bit reduce and a talent wasn’t indispensably [a garland of] front runners removing 9s and stuff. We will see a lot of growth, a lot of surprises this season, maybe a dim equine entrance by a middle. We have a good cast. They are some-more about a characters and a dancing will come.”
“If we start high,” she adds, “there is no where to go!”
