It’s Back! Dancing With The Stars, Season 14 Premiere Performances

I feel like i just finished watching a season of Dancing With The Stars but yet again, we’re back in the ballroom for the fourteenth season of the dance competition. LIke last year, I’m actually excited about this round up of stars and think they all share a certain lot of potential. But, under the pressure of the lights, the audience and the spray tans, will they bring it on the floor and impress the three judges? Let’s find out!

The show started with a bang thanks to Maria Menounus and Derek Hough dancing a steamy Cha Cha on the dance floor, only fuelling the rumors that the two are romantically involved. Another surprise performance came from Green Bay Packer Donald Driver who brought the party (and his hips) to the ballroom floor. However, it was Katherine Jenkins and Jaleel White who stole the show, scoring the highest points ever during a season opener.

But the one performance that warmed my heart the most was that of Gladys Knight. Don’t get it twisted, this Grammy award winning woman of soul is going to bring it this season on the dance floor. Here ease of movement and love for dancing is so refreshing. I had the hugest smile on my face watching her dance. In my opinion (and a few of the judges), this is the best premiere of DWTS that I’ve ever seen. So without further ado, check out all of the night’s performances (and judges’ scores) below.
