When Glee actress Amber Riley (Mercedes) made her debut on Season 17 of Dancing With the Stars, she crushed the competition, ending the night as one of the few stars in the history of the competition to get a score of 27 out of 30 on their first dance.

Plenty of Amber’s Glee co-stars were there in the audience to support her that night, and though none of them made it to the Week 2 taping this Monday, quite a few still took to Twitter to show their support.




Amber’s spirited jive earned her a score of 24 points. That’s three less than last week, but still much higher than most of her competitors. Though the judges all agreed that her energy was infectious, they thought Amber’s footwork was a bit flat for a jive and could have used some improvement.

All in all, though, the Glee actress’ dance was still a great success. Her partner, recent Emmy winner Derek Hough, congratulated her via Twitter on a job well done.


As for Amber, she finished off the night with this.

We love seeing how well Amber is doing in the competition, and we can’t wait to see her continue to succeed next week!
