My Favorite Moment: Dancing With The Stars Premiere

How exciting was last night’s first show of the season on DWTS?! I am so happy to back! I really missed the dancers, judges and crew. The beginning of the show is really special because you get to see the contestants go through the motions of stepping out onto the stage for the first time. Watching them take that first step and just going for it is the greatest. I was really impressed with what I saw! Definitely some serious competition out there this season.

Speaking of competition — Derek and I are in quite the contest… with ourselves! Topping last season’s (cough cough, Emmy Award winning) performance we gave to Sia’s “Elastic Heart” is going to be a challenge, but definitely one that we are ecstatic to take on.

The epitome of us! @derekhough

    Congrats on your win! You and Derek are so talented! Maybe if we’re lucky, we’ll get to see you dance again this season. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am excited for the new cast of DWTS as well! I am a little partial to Nick Carter because I feel like he’s a part of my youth. haha Also, that comment you made about Nick being on your wall was hilarious. I know I can relate to that! I also loved Bindi, Alexa, Carlos and Andy. Right now, I’m just voting for a bunch of people because they are all so good! I can’t wait to see each of their journeys.

    Nice to see you back at the Judge’s table this year. I really enjoyed last nights show. I voted for my three favorite dances of the night, Derek, Val and Alex (the hero). Looking forward to next week. Are they going to have any guest judges this year or will it just be the 3 of you?

    Great season premiere, Julianne!

    OMG I’m so excited to hear that you and derek will be dancing again this season ??????! Love seeing you back on the judges table! You looked absolutely gorgeous out there! Which is exactly why you’re my fashion icon! I agree with you on Bindi’s dance last night, it was the best dance of the night! She shined on the dance floor and her stage presence is captivating! I can’t wait to see what the dancers will bring next week:)
