Season 20 of the show is finally here with a cast of unknowns and only a handful of celebs that I actually recognize, but probably by the time you get this far in the show you’ve had all the good celebrities already. I really would like them to have more soap stars on the show but that’s just me. This years cast includes athletes, musicians and even the most recent bachelor. I loved how in the opening they had all the moments from the past seasons very cool. This year there is a golden mirror ball. This week I review all the teams and after this it will be Best Routines, Worst Routines, Most Improved.
Pairings : Whitney & Chris Soules, Derek & Nastia Lukin, Artem & Patti Labelle, Emma & Redfoo, Sharna & Noah Galloway, Tony & Suzanne Somers , Mark & Willow Shields, Allison & Riker Lynch , Val & Rumor Willis, Peta & Michael Sam, Kym & Robert Herjavec , Keo & Charlotte McKinney

Willow & Mark, Cha Cha ~ She’s an actress from hunger games at age 14 shes the youngest dancer and no relation to Brooke Shields. She was able to keep up with him and seemed quite mature for her age , she did need more hip action and it wasn’t as polished as it could be but she did a nice job.
Robert & Kym, Cha Cha This Ceo of software company is best known for shark tank . Loved the song and costume, He did the signature dance move and he was a great partner for her a bit stiff but he coud love a lot better than other older ones on the show.
Riker & Allison, Jive~ I’m not feeling hair or image he’s projecting and while I did think he could dance I felt no connection between him and his partner it was as if he was just doing the moves given to him. The judges were blinded by him and loved him.
Charlotte & Keo, Jive ~ Model and had one commercial during Superbowl. I was not impressed with her, he did mot of the work while she was just a pretty face who did some basic steps.
Patty & Artem, Fox Trot~ This legendary singer is also a songwriter. She was graceful but slow but its hard at her age to keep up with the younger dancer.
Chris & Witney,jive ~ He is the most recent bachelor who is engaged to a Whitney. He really did amazing and kept right up with his partner adding his own charisma to the moves.
Michael & Peta,cha cha ~ a gay guy who plays football. he nailed his routine and had dance moves, while Len called his footwork sloppy.
Nastia & Derek, foxtrot ~ a former Olympic gymnast. Great effects of being in black and white to color and loved her costume so beautiful. Derek got himself another great partner this season. She was amazing dancing with him. The judges got him in trouble for doing a lift.
Redfoo & Emma ~ musician and the worst guest judge on the show who does not know anything about dance. This guy was awful and he could not dance and he danced to his own song .
Noah & Sharna ~ a military hero and handicapped by losing an arm and leg. He did good for his limitations which was her moving around while he moved I don’t see him staying long.
Suzanne & Tony, cha cha~ tv legendary actress in her 60s. She did a nice routine with him not outstanding but she wasn’t stumbling all over the place either.
Rumor & Val,foxtrot ~ singer and actress with famous parents, they know each other through mutual friends. Her costume was so beautiful and she was graceful with good form . I think Val got himself a winner this season.
