First pair of competitors eliminated

ABC Studios
This week we said goodbye to Koko Iwasaki and Matt Walsh. They received a four from each judge.

The first episode of season 32 of “Dancing with the Stars” premiered on Tuesday night. This was the first week of the eliminations round. 

This week each team had to perform a dance to a song of their choice that is either a cha-cha, tango, or salsa style.  

The elimination is based on the judges’ votes combined with the votes from the audience in all of the U.S. and Canada. Voting is available on ABC before the competition begins until the last commercial break of the night. 

This week’s eliminations were Matt Walsh and Koko Iwasaki performing a cha-cha routine to the song “Poison” by Bell Biv DeVoe. The team scored a total of 12 points out of 30 and had the least amount of guest votes. 

This week’s top teams with the highest scores out of 30 points were Charity Lawson and Artem Chigvinstev in first place with a score of 22 points with the song “Only Girl in the World” by Rhianna, followed by Ariana Madix and Pasha Pashkov with 21 points with the song “Love Myself” by Hailee Stanfield, and Lele Pons and Brandon Armmstrong in third place with 19 points to the song “El Tango de Roxanne” from Moulin Rouge. 

The team that stood out to me the most was Harry Jowsey and Rylee Arnold. The team had great communication throughout the night, even after they’ve performed. The score that they received was twelve points out of thirty. 

There are 13 teams remaining in the competition. Next week’s theme will be “Latin Night.”

You can watch “Dancing with the Stars” live every Tuesday at 8 p.m. eastern time on Disney+ and ABC, and it will be available the following morning on Hulu.
