Everyone wanted to know how the Ice Dancers would perform on the Dancing With the Stars Season 18 premiere. Meryl Davis was the first of the two Olympians to take the floor, and she partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy (he's back!) had the Cha-Cha-Cha.
In the video, Meryl said she was really excited to be paired with Maks, and he's good looking. They addressed the fact that Meryl had worked with Derek on their Olympic routine. They are a little flirty. Maks seems to be channeling his nice side.
So, it should come as no surprise that Meryl is fantastic. Like really, really fantastic. Sharp, expressive, she looked great all around. Her spins are just amazing. The cheers basically drowned Carrie Ann out.
"You're nice on ice, but you're good on wood!" Len said. Bruno called her the queen of spins.
Score: 24/30. Too low!
