1. The New Pairings Are Revealed
Mark Ballas struggled a bit at first when taking on Amy Purdy as a partner. He was trying to figure out how to maneuver her since she dances without legs. After some advice from her normal partner Derek Hough, Ballas was able to kill it in choreography and Purdy killed it too. Derek Hough cheered and cheered as he watched and was very proud of his partner. It was a 34 out of 40, but when judge Julianne Hough raised her paddle, she said, “I think I messed up.” Did she actually want to give Purdy a 9?
