The dancing continues tonight when Dancing with the Stars continues at 8 p.m. on ABC!
With Gary Busey, Paula Deen, and those judges all in the same place at the same time, things have already gotten super strange. Paula suggested that perhaps she had soiled her previously white underwear, Carrie Anne Inaba made cougar jokes about Emma Slater and Hayes Grier, and Gary Busey changed our lives.
"When I'm talking to you, your left eye is spinning. That is really neat!" he said toTom Bergeron, and we had never felt so truly alive.
It was just one of those once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to see a Backstreet Boy, a Housewife, an American hero, and a Gary Busey in the same room…dancing.
There were some fun surprises tonight by way of a few really incredible first week dances. Bindi Irwin and Nick Carter walked away with the top scores after two totally flawless dances, followed closely by Tamar Braxton and Carlos PenaVegawith two only slightly less flawless routines.
Carlos managed to win the husband vs. wife jive battle against Alexa PenaVega by just one point, but clearly both are great dancers.
On the other end of the spectrum, it's only week one, so some of the scores were not so hot. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak earned the lowest scores, while Chaka Khan was only one point ahead of her.
All in all, it was a premiere we'll never forget, until we do. Things are gonna keep getting weirder in season 21, and we are so ready for it.
