Dancing With The Stars Season Six Begins

Posted by ctanglefoot on March 18, 2008

A brand new season of Dancing With The Stars with the stars opened with the first of two night’s of premiering episodes.  First up the Men: Penn Jillett, Jason Taylor, Cristian De La Fuentè, Adam Corolla, and Steve Guttenburg dancing either the Cha Cha or the Foxtrot. All the professional women dancers are returning from last season.

Kym Johnson and magician Penn Jillette opened the competition with an entertaining Cha Cha. Penn gave it his all, put on his show biz smile and gave us an enjoyable first number.  His footwork was a bit clunky, but you could tell he was trying and he was having a good time. He definitely had the entertainment part down pat.

The judges scored them: 5 – 6 – 5 for a total of 16 points

Edyta Sliwinska and Miami Dolphins’ linebacker Jason Taylor drew the Foxtrot as their opening number.  Not to bad for a first dance, not a lot of errors, nice lines, and nice shoulders (for the most part.)

The judges scored them: 7 – 8- 7 for a total 22 points

Cheryl Burke and hot Latin star  Cristian de La Fuentè delivered a sexy Cha Cha. Cristian had very nice moves, good feet, good hips, fluid, sexy, quick.

The judges gave them straight 7’s for a total of 21 points

JulieAnn Hough and comedian Adam Corolla drew the Foxtrot this week.  Hmmmm, fluid lower half, stiff upper half, but slouching shoulders.  Some really good movements.

The judges gave them straight 5‘s for a total 15 points

Karina Smirnoff and R & B star Mario delivered a great Cha Cha. Good chemistry to go with the good footwork, very nice and fluid.  Good charisma.  He could be come a little cockie.

The judges gave them straight 8’s for the highest score of the evening, 24 points.

Anna Trebunskaya and Steve Guttenburg wrapped up the night with an entertaining Foxtrot.  Who cares about missed steps and Guttenburg’s counting? The guy was so happy to be there you couldn’t help smiling with him. He was charming, having fun, he was loving it.

The judges scored them straight 6’s for a total of 18 points.

Tuesday night the women perform before the lines open for voting. Then next Monday night each of the couples will perform a second dance. Tuesday, March 25th will feature the first elimination of the season and the first ever double elimination for Dancing With The Stars.
