Here we go! Season 14 of “Dancing With the Stars” is officially underway!
I love the beginning of this show! Everyone looked absolutely fabulous! Sherri Shepherd was sparkling and looked gorgeous. Another looker, and for sure to be on every ladies’ radar is William Levy. I have to admit that I’m hoping for Jaleel White to do an amazing job. I’ve loved him ever since his “Family Matters” days.
First up, Maria Menounos and three-time champ Derek Hough. They dove right in with a Cha Cha. She and Derek seem to have a good chemistry going. The Cha Cha starts off a little slower but it did pick up some speed in the middle. This is their first dance so I can cut her a break. I would like to see more speed though. There were no major missteps but we’ll have to see what the judges take was on this dance. Len said they coped very, very well. He wanted to see more hip action but thought it was a great job. Bruno said that she was vivaciously delicious and had great timing. He also wants to see her work her hips more. Carrie Ann thought she did a strong solid Cha Cha and had good placement. She did notice that she needs to connect her dance sequences more so it’s not so picture, to picture, to picture. Overall, not bad comments at all from the judges! I would give them a 7.
Their Scores: Carrie Ann – 7, Len – 7, and Bruno – 7, for a total of 21 out of 30.
