DWTS season 24 Premiere Recap
Charo and Keo Motsepe
The perfect march of DWTS season 24 premiere was the entertainment guru, Charo who’s paired with dancer Keo Motsepe.
However, Charo’s salsa, despite making impact was a little not getting what is needed in the show and when the judges pointed out the pitfalls in her technique, she couldn’t take it that she tried to physically attack them.
Judges Score: 21/40
Erika Jayne and Gleb Savchenko
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills- Erika Jayne danced a Salsa to her own song, although it could be defined as a stretch from a conventional Salsa. Erika nailed it during the show.
Judges Score: 24/40
Nick Viall and Peta Murgatroyd
On his part, the Bachelor Nick Viall, seems to do better on the floor than looking for love on the Bachelor.
His performance got him 24 points from judges while Bonner Bolton earned 22, despite unintentionally grabbing partner Sharna Burgess on her private part.
Best couple of the moment were;
Simone Biles and Sasha Farber:
The 5 time Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles’ threw even the judges up their feet. They performed last and they gave the premiere a happy ending. Judge Len Goodman even confessed that they were “best dance of the night”. While Biles said “I had to channel my inner Laurie.”
Judges score; 32/40
Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater:
During the DWTS season 24 premiere Biles was closely followed by Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater as “Best dance of the night!”.
With so much display of energy and sensitivity, they were able to prove and a point.
Judges score : 31/40
Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev
The pair wow! Judges that Len was compelled to describe them as “a pairing with great promise.” And for Bruno Tonioli, the dance made him feel like he was enveloped in a luxurious cashmere shawl.
Judges scores: 28/40
Heather Morris and Maksim Chmerkovskiy:
At par with Nancy Kerrigan and Artem Chigvintsev were Heather Morris and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
After Maksim energetic Viennese waltz performance, critics came for her, calling her a ringer due to her extensive dance background. But Julianne went to her rescue, while Len gave Heather Morris props for being “a very accomplished dancer,”
Judges score: 28/40
David Ross and Lindsay Arnold
During DWTS season 24 premiere, also on the same point were David Ross and Lindsay Arnold.
Ross is a former MLB catcher and the first pro baseball player ever to join DWTS. And his performance was indeed a shift from what he’s known for. Although David Ross’s “Go Cubs Go” quickstep wasn’t that much impressive to judge Len he earned a good point.
Judges score: 28/40
Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy:
A point low were Normani Kordei and Valentin Chmerkovskiy:
After their performance, Len could not help but complained that Normani Kordei with Chmerkovskiy wasn’t quick enough for him due to its 10-minute into, while Val admitted that the score will lower his average.
Judges score: 27/40
Chris Kattan and Witney Carson.
The most discouraging performance during DWTS season 24 premiere was that of Chris Kattan and Witney Carson.
With their poor outing last night, Kattan’s future in the competition is bleak.
