Jaleel White DWTS
March 21, 2012 by staff
Jaleel White DWTS, Season 14 of Dancing With the Stars premiered Monday night as 12 star-studded couples began the competition for the coveted mirror ball trophy.
There’s something very different about DWTS this season…everyone is actually good! And on top of that, there are no controversial contestants this time around. Is DWTS trading in tabloids for talent?
Here’s a recap of last night’s performances:
Maria Menounos and Derek Hough¨
The beautiful TV personality may have surprised a few fans when she told her partner, three-time champ Hough: “I’m like a dude, but I have bubs. I’m not dainty-like. I want to wrestle. Let’s fight!” The stunning duo danced the cha-cha, and the judges thought her timing was good but that she needed to work on overall execution. “Nothing can prepare you for the first dance. But until you come onto this floor for the first time, you’re never sure how you’ll cope. Overall, I thought you coped very, very well. Great start to the show. Well done,” said head judge Len Goodman. 21/30
Jack Wagner and Anna Trebunskaya
The soap opera bad boy was light on his feet and delighted the audience and judges with his charismatic routine. What he needs to work on? His footwork. “Beautifully acted, beautifully danced. I loved the way you extend your moves. Week one! What are you going to do week two?” said Bruno Tonioli. 23/30
Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd
Football players usually have a good run during this competition. Driver’s athleticism (and gridiron moves) look to serve him well. The judges thought his cha-cha was a crowd-pleaser. “You are nothing but charisma and charm for days! You kicked that cha-cha’s booty!” said Carrie Ann Inaba. 21/30
Gavin DeGraw and Karina Smirnoff¨
The “Chariot” singer said he wanted to do the show because he was itching to get out from behind the piano during his shows. The judges thought his foxtrot wasn’t the best first showing, even though they found it to have a gentle quality to it. “You coped well with a difficult dance. I liked the routine. I thought it flowed. The foxtrot is a romantic sort of dance, and you were a little bit stiff,” Goodman said. 20/30
Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower¨
For their first dance, Fegan star did the cha-cha, something the young Disney star’s professional partner thought might pair well with his natural style, considering he’s a freestyle hip-hop dancer. The judges thought Fegan and Hightower had the coolest spin they’ve seen in all 14 seasons. “You, Roshon, can go on and on and on, I’m telling you! Laser-sharp. Never too early. You split it in the middle. It was unbelievable!” Tonioli said. 23/30
Jaleel White and Kym Johnson¨
He’s a nerd no more! White, who made us laugh as Steve Urkel on the hit show Family Matters — proved how coordinated he is in real life. His first dance was the foxtrot, and Tonioli said he thought he was watching Gregory Hines dance. “Jaleel, you are the icing on the cake. Smooth, smooth, super smooth,” Inaba said. 26/30
