It already played

I wonder if it was only on certain affiliates because it didn't air on the ABC stream we had in Canada.

I just watched Chrishell's dance and I don't think it was THAT bad. Sure, it wasn't great but definitely worth more than a 13. Her being 1 point higher than Charles and 2 points higher than Carole, who were actually terrible and deserve the low scores they got, doesn't sit right with me.

Looks wise, can we believe that Nelly is only 3 years younger than Spicer? 😄

 

Jeannie Mai also looks 10 years younger than her age. She and Brandon were fun, I liked his choreo for the Salsa.

 

Carole was AWFUL. Poor Pasha - he couldn't really hide his disappointment at getting her as a partner, as opposed to Emma who went in the totally opposite direction, a bit bizarre to be so excited by straight 4's. Maybe she doesn't care that much about this season and is perfectly content with a short season so she can get back to Sasha.

 

Nev was a nice surprise and I wonder if the audience may take to him as more of a 'surprise' contender. AJ & Johnny obviously both have potential but I feel that the judges needed to use a wider variety of paddles, I think there was a 5 way tie at 18. Too many 6's given out. Skai probably the highlight of the night for me.

 

The whole show felt a bit too frantic with 15 couples in 2 hours including adverts.

Gaga sharing Kaitlyn & Artem’s dance ❤️

 

I get the feeling that Carole’s dance will hit the 1 million view mark before next week’s show. It’s already at 413K views in less than 24 hours.

Gaga also sharing Kaitlyn and Artem’s dance! :wub:

 

Aww yay for this. I was wondering  what Lady Gaga thought of Kaitlyn's dance as she posted about Carole's. :haha:

Ooh gosh i haven't even checked out the Youtube numbers yet but yeah this is hardly surprising. She is all the talk of the news regarding DWTS talk. Hopefully this will be the only week where her dance is a viral sensation... and she doesn't dominate the views for as long as she lasts.

Carole Baskin on this show is giving me life. :wub: My overall favourites were Jeannie and AJ. I thought both did really well for the opening week. 
 

I wish Johnny had a male partner as I didn’t enjoy him trying to be sexy whilst paired with Britt. I also didn’t enjoy Skai’s dance as it felt uncomfortable since she’s so tiny. Maybe they’ll both change my mind.

Week 1 dance rankings:

 

1. Justina & Sasha - Cha-Cha: She killed this for the first week! Full of energy and really fun choreography.

2. Skai & Alan - Tango: Really promising start. The song choice kinda distracted me but I think they worked with it great.

3. Kaitlyn & Artem - Cha-Cha: Definitely a natural mover, as to be expected! I really enjoyed this.

4. Jeannie & Brandon - Salsa: She really pleasantly surprised me. Her energy is infectious and I think they make a great pair!

5. Nev & Jenna - Foxtrot: The frame was distracting at times. But the solo moments were great. For only a few days training...great start!

6. Johnny & Britt - Cha-Cha: This was a really fun performance. I think this is a great pairing and Britt started off with super fun choreo.

7. Monica & Val - Foxtrot: She’s a gorgeous mover, from her career I’m sure she’s a perfectionist and it showed. I’m excited for her!

8. AJ & Cheryl - Jive: Solid start! That’s a tough, fast song to start with, and I really enjoyed Cheryl’s choreography.

9. Anne & Keo - Cha-Cha: A lovely surprise! I think at times she moved a little small and safe, but her commitment to the dance was really strong.

10. Nelly & Daniella - Salsa: SO much fun. He was having the time of his life! Definitely not the cleanest dance but he surpassed my expectations and I liked Daniella’s choreo.

11. Jesse & Sharna - Quickstep: I think he has great promise, I just felt like the expressions didn’t always match the dance and it got a little clunky at times. But a challenging dance to start with!

12. Vernon & Peta - Foxtrot: I think this maybe suffered a little by being so early in, I kinda forgot about it. I think at times it was a little stiff especially in his frame. But I‘m not ruling him out just yet!

13. Chrishell & Gleb - Tango: I don’t think the judges needed to come down as hard on this qs they did. Saying that, there’s definitely work to be done. I think nerves maybe got the best of her...and the song choice was off.

14. Charles & Emma - Salsa: He looked like he was having fun and that’s what matters.

15. Carole & Pasha - Paso Doble: I think Pasha’s a really nurturing pro and she seemed to be enjoying herself.

Yeah. No shade to Britt because I like her, but I wish they’d start allowing same-sex couples. Gleb has randomly been one of the pros advocating for it. :haha:

Carole’s dance has now surpassed 1 million views and is already nearing 2 million on YouTube. This has to be the quickest that has ever happened.
