Dancing with the Stars – 14th Season Show

Posted on: March 20, 2012

Last night’s 14th season show of Dancing with the Stars was probably the better début show in a long time. When you look at the stars that are dancing, it becomes obvious that most of them are entertainers and performers. Maybe that is why this first show of the season seemed pretty good.

Here are the stars dancing: Melissa Gilbert, Sherri Shepard, Jaleel White, Martina Navratilova, Jack Wagner, Gavin DeGraw, Donald Driver, Gladys Knight, Roshon Fegan, William Levy, Maria Menounos, and Katherine Jenkins.

I loved watching Gladys Knight’s Cha Cha Cha. She was moving just fine for her age and had great musicality – duh! She’s my favorite singer and I’m glad she wasn’t there with her Pips. She said that the Pips wouldn’t let her dance. Too bad, not only does she have a great voice she can really move!

As everyone knows Melissa Gilbert as “half-pint” from “Little House on the Prairie,” her story was very sad. She went through a divorce and then recently broke her back! Oh my! So if she seems stiff, I think it is because she still is being careful with her back. Let her dance for a couple of more weeks and I’m sure her partner Maks will flex her out.

Everyone on the show was truly amazed how Martina Navratilova cleaned up so well. Martina is not a pretty woman but looked elegant with her hair done and wearing really nice clothes. Her Fox Trot was slow but her partner, Tony, knows how to bring out the best in his stars.

The most excited star was Sherri Shepard. She seemed to love everything she was doing. Her partner, Val, seems to be very patient with her and that’s good. Hope she keeps up the excitement.

If you don’t get the Spanish channel, William Levy is an actor on one of their shows and is known as a TV idol like Brad Pitt. He’s nice to look at and really did well with his Cha Cha Cha with his partner Cheryl. He seems so unassuming and embarrassed with all the attention. So I guess that’s what makes him sexy?

Don’t know what the story is on Donald Driver, he’s a football player. He was moving and grooving with his Cha Cha Cha and everyone was amazed. I guess I missed the joke. Also I think the audience wanted a higher score. Well, moving and grooving is only part of the Cha Cha Cha, he needs to be technically right as well.

The judges were very kind this first dance. They gave mostly 7’s and 8’s. Except for Katherine Jones and Jaleel White – he was “Urkel” on Family Matters sitcom show. They received 9’s. They did a great job and hopefully they can keep up the momentum

Next week another Monday night of dances and then on Tuesday a star will be eliminated. We’ll see how well the stars do next week.
