LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Dancing with the Stars” season 31 has arrived on Disney+. The good news for dance aficionados is that there are no commercials, so they will have two hours of uninterrupted enjoyment.
Sixteen couples began round one, however one was eliminated at the conclusion of the evening.
Alfonso Ribeiro, a former “DWTS” winner, will join Tyra Banks as a co-host. The extra time allows for more chit-chat with the judges, as well as more banter with Ribeiro and the contestants after their performances.
Charli D’Amelio, a social media sensation, topped the leaderboard with an astounding 32 out of 40 points for her cha-cha.
Actor Wayne Brady came in second with 29 points out of 40 for his cha-cha.
The third-place spot was shared by actress Selma Blair, reality sensation Gabby Windey, and drag entertainer Shangela.
Finally, actor Jason Lewis is ranked 15th, and reality personality Vinny Guadagnino is ranked 16th.
The final outcome is determined by a mix of viewer votes and judge scores. Lewis and his partner Peta Murgatroyd were the ones that had to hang up their dancing shoes in the end.
Next week, 15 couples will return for an Elvis-themed night of dance.
