Donald Driver DWTS, The moral of the story from Monday night’s premiere of “Dancing With the Stars” is that class will always trump barely there costumes and glittery pizzazz.
At least for the judges. Judging by the nonstop hooting and hollering at William Levy’s abs, however, what wins viewers over may be a different story.
The night kicked off with a bang and a brave, scintillating cha cha cha from “Extra” host Maria Menounos and her partner Derek Hough.
With the bar set high for a first night at Menounos’ 21 points, the rest of the dancers upped their games. There was a slim divide between the lowest-scorers (Martina Navratilova, Gavin DeGraw and Melissa Gilbert at 20 points) and the scoreboard leaders (Jaleel White and Katherine Jenkins raked in an impressive 26 points).
This season’s lineup includes the usual motley crew of actors, musicians and athletes, ranging from former child star Jaleel White to “Empress of Soul” Gladys Knight.
Highlights from the show included one very charismatic Donald Driver, who delivered with fantastic showmanship that disguised his still-awkward dance moves, and Disney star Roshon Fegan strutting around stage with swagger and enough Michael Jackson-esque moves to bring down the house.
Gavin DeGraw, a self-professed klutz, schmoozed with the ladies – using the term “pretty sandwich” at one point as he stood between partner Karina Smirnoff and host Brooke Burke, but his charaisma failed to woo high scores from the judges.
And William Levy, in all his brawny glory, had Carrie Ann Inaba blushing and thanking ABC for her judging job.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the hottest package of the season,” her colleague Bruno Tonioli crowed after Levy’s cha cha cha.
White closed out the evening with a slick foxtrot that showed viewers that he’s graduated from “geeky boy” suspenders to dapper “handsome man” suits – with grace, to boot.
“You are the icing on the cake, just smooth, smooth, smooth!” judge Carrie Ann cooed to White, who looked dashing doing his foxtrot with partner Kym Johnson.
