Next up are Heather Morris and Maks Chmerkovskiy, dancing a Viennese waltz –to “Make Something Beautiful” by Ben Rector.
Bruno Tonioli calls them the “beauty and the beast,” calling the partnership “interesting.” Carrie Ann Inaba likes her lines but feels as though she was hiding her personality behind the choreography. Len Goodman calls her an “accomplished dancer,” adding that they’re a “match made in heaven.” Julianne Hough says it was beautiful and graceful. She adds that Heather’s previous dance style is completely different than ballroom dancing. They score a 28.
Tonight, “Dancing with the Stars” celebrates its 400th episode of glitz, glam and dancing. The dances featured on tonight’s two-hour-long premiere episode include the tango, cha cha, salsa, quickstep and Viennese waltz. Couples will have the chance to show America what they’re made of and put their best foot forward on the dance floor as they compete for the glittering Mirrorball trophy. The first couple will be eliminated next week.
