Kellie Pickler Has Stunning Start to Dancing With the Stars [VIDEOS]
Sassy and classy. That’s how Kellie Pickler kicked off Season 16 of ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ She and her professional partner Derek Hough, impressed all three judges with the first dance of the night. Kellie will have to keep an eye on the youngest person on the dance floor, 16 year-old Disney star Zendaya, who had the highest scores of the night.
Kellie Pickler 7-7-7
Kellie sizzled with her Cha-Cha-Cha and should be dancing for weeks to come with moves like that on week one. Dancing first may have hurt Kellie with scores though. She received the same scores as others who didn’t dance anywhere near as well. Derek couldn’t have been more proud, posting a picture on Instagram from backstage, saying ‘oh yeah…so proud of my @kelliepickler.‘ Watch her performance below.
Wynonna Judd also took on a Cha-Cha-Cha with her professional partner Tony Dolovani. They didn’t score as well as Kellie but Wynonna didn’t dance as well. She looked a little stiff, but that’s too be expected from someone who has a fear of performing in public. How Wynonna sings in front of thousands is beyond me. Now that she has the first dance jitters out of her system, I anticipate big things from Wynonna. The highlight was when cameras showed Wy’s entire family in the audience cheering her on; a moment Wy appreciated.
Zendaya is the youngest to ever take the Dancing with the Stars dance floor and she proved you can dance at any age. The Disney star scored the highest of the night with a contemporary dance that made her look like she’d been doing it for years.
Jacoby Jones 7-6-7
Jacoby Jones, who plays for the Baltimore Ravens, can do more than just catch a football. Unlike everyone else, Jacoby had only one week to practice, after having knee surgery. And if he looks that good on the dance floor after only 7 days, I can’t wait to see what he can do with more time. That man can move!
Skater Dorothy Hamil and Olympian Aly Raisman also had strong dances, both scoring 20 points. On the bottom, Andy Dick, Lisa Vanderpump and DL Hughley. Lisa may be the one to go because her fan base isn’t as large as the other stars. However, if the worst dancer goes home, it’ll be DL who scored 12 points. The poor guy has two left feet but his fans may keep him around a little while longer.
