'Dancing with the Stars' Recap, First Show of Season 14

It’s the first show of Season 14 on Dancing With The Stars so we’ll see how nervous and great people are or aren’t. Keep refreshing as we are updating this live people! 

Maria Menounos & Derek Hough – Cha Cha Cha – LOVE Maria and her laugh is killing me.  I love it. They have great chemistry in the package so it was nice to see it transform onto the dance floor. Maria is a professional who has been televised with millions of viewers so this is a piece of cake for her. I loved her form. Scores: 7/7/7 = 21/30.

Jack Wagner & Anna Trebunskaya – Fox Trot – He's an actor and of course former partner of Heather Locklear and for a 52 year old man he looks pretty damn good. To be honest I don't care for their costumes or the music but I suppose it's fitting for the dance. I just need to stay awake long enough to enjoy it. I'm kidding. His form seems good. The audience loves him. So do the judges. Carrie Ann Inaba was drooling a bit.  Scores: 8/7/8 = 23/30.

Donald Driver & Peta Murgatroyd –  Cha Cha Cha – He’s got a great personality and I love the package they showed when they met and practiced. Omg he moves really nicely and very sexy. What a great dance. It had the audience panting and I'm guessing Carrie Ann Inaba is going to be gushing like a well. Nice standing ovation and well-deserved. Scores: 7/7/7 = 21/30.

Gavin DeGraw & Karina Smirnoff – Fox Trot – She's fresh off of her trophy ball win and he's very hot with his music. He's quite shy and sweet and insecure. I think for his first time and for being so nervous and insecure he did pretty good. He's got a great fan base so I really hope he doesn't go home tomorrow. 7/6/7 = 20/30. 

Roshon Fagan & Chelsie Hightower – Fox Trot – He is so young and such a cute kid. I have no idea who he is but he's got a great partner. Love Chelsie and so glad she is back. His moon dance/Michael Jackson moves aren't going to go over very well with Len. He seemed to be struggling in the rehearsals but he did really well (all things considered) in the live show.  Scores: 8/7/8 = 23/30.

Sherri Shepherd & Val Chmerkovskiy – Fox Trot – Despite the recent controversy surrounding her I still like her and love seeing her on the show. Her laugh and smile are infectious. Did it give her the upper hand? Who knows, but some of the stars (past and present) have a dancing background (related to ballroom or not) so what does it matter right? I thought she did amazing on their first dance. And she has a great personality. Scores: 8/7/8 = 23/30.

Melissa Gilbert & Maksim Chmerkovskiy – Cha Cha Cha – She likes a challenge and she's going to get it with Maks. The thought that she broke her back has me cringing every time she moves. I wonder if she's in any pain. They seemed out of sync but it's just the first show. I don't think she was that great but easy for me to say sitting on my ass and shoveling one donut after another into my pie hole. Scores: 7/6/7 = 20/30.

William Levy & Cheryl Burke – Cha cha Cha – I have been waiting all night for this guy. I have no idea who he is other than he is hot, Latin and the audience knows it. What a gorgeous face and BODY. I think he's dancing good although I'm just looking at his arms and his ass and they are still in tact. You know his fans are going to keep him in the show. For someone so sexy he doesn't move as smoothly as one would think, but I bet he screws like a rabbit. Okay that's crude I'm sorry. But COME ON. Seriously I can not take this season already. I may perish. Scores: 8/8/8 = 24/30.

Martina Navratilova & Tony Dovolani – Fox Trot – She looks amazing all dressed up. I didn't know (or I forgot) she's a breast cancer survivor. This will seem like a walk in the park for her. She didn't do so well and if I had to guess now (without seeing the others) I can see her going home. I feel bad for saying that but someone's got to go, right? But she looks so beautiful and I hope she felt beautiful although that's not normally how she dresses. Scores: 7/6/7 = 20/30.

Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas – Fox Trot – She is so pretty and seems really very nice. She's teamed up with Mark so she can't go wrong even if she loses. She gets to touch him every day for long periods of time. For someone who is so uncomfortable and nervous I think she did beautifully. She looks really elegant and genuinely seems moved to tears. Scores: 9/8/9 = 26/30.

Gladys Knight & Tristan McManus – Cha Cha Cha – So happy that Tristan is back! Love Gladys. She has such a wonderful spirit. And she can move for a woman of her age (67). And she gets to touch Tristan daily. Deja vu much? The audience LOVED her. She's a legend and DWTS is lucky to have her. Scores: 8/7/8 = 23/30.

Jaleel White & Kym Johnson – Fox Trot – Last but certainly not least Irkel takes to the stage and from the buzz out there he's a fan favorite! I think the first and last dance of the first night is always the most dreaded positions. Based on the rehearsal footage he seems incredible. Wow he really brings that old style of dancing to the stage. He's incredible. I really enjoyed watching his dance. Scores: 9/8/9 = 26/30.

What a night this first show of Season 14 was! Who is your favorite? It's hard to believe that someone has to go home next week, but who do you think it will be? The results show will be on Tuesday, March 27, 2012.
