‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 18 Premiere: Top 10 Highlights & Recap

6. Star Wars Was in the House

Billy Dee Williams made his dance floor debut with the help of Princess Lea, R2D2, and some troopers. There were also some Ewoks in the audience to cheer him on as he did the Cha Cha … While it wasn’t an incredible performance, it was nice to see. Judge Bruno Tonioli, though, told him he wanted to see more Darth Vader.

7. Danica and Candace Had a Rivalry Over a Boy

Apparently, Danica McKellar and Candace Cameron Bure were rivals over an ex-boyfriend Jeremy Miller in the past. Candace talks about getting a phone call from Jeremy that he was dumping her for his new girlfriend Danica … and the rest is history.

8. Cody Simpson’s Partner Asks Him if He’s Single

Cody Simpson is paired up with new professional dancer Witney Carson. Right off the bat, Witney asks Simpson if he has a girlfriend and of course he says, “yes.” His girlfriend is actually the drop-dead gorgeous model Gigi Hadid. Hadid is also the daughter of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster. While Simpson tries to resist Carson’s charm, host Erin Andrews made it difficult for them to avoid awkward moments. It’s almost as if she was trying to put a wedge between Simpson and his girlfriend who was applauding from the front row. For more information on Simpson’s girlfriend, click the below link:

9. Paralympic Snowboarder Amy Purdy Kills It

If anyone can teach a double leg amputee, Derek Hough can … and this season he’s paired with Amy Purdy. The way she danced tonight, you’d never know she had such a disability. And, she’s got a killer body to go with those dance floor moves. It was a truly inspiring performance, which you can check out by clicking on the below link:

10. Charlie White Got the Highest Score of the Night

After performing a contemporary dance with Mark Ballas, Candace Cameron Bure was met with high scores and huge applause. Scoring a total of 25 points put them in the lead for the first night of the season … until Charlie White performed and got a score of 27. Do you think it’s fair to have Charlie White and Meryl Davis, Olympic figure skaters, in the competition?
