LOS ANGELES — Season 31 of “Dancing with the Stars” rolled out on Disney+. The good news for dance fans: two full hours of entertainment because there are no commercials.
Sixteen couples started round one but one was sent home at the end of the evening.
Former “DWTS” Champion Alfonso Ribeiro joins Tyra Banks’ co-host. The extra time allows for a little more chatting with the judges and a little more banter with Ribeiro and the contestants after their performance.
Social media star Charli D’Amelio landed at the top of the rankings with an impressive 32 out of 40 for her cha-cha.
Close behind in second place was actor Wayne Brady with 29 out of 40 for his cha-cha.
There was a three-way tie for third place shared by actress Selma Blair, reality star Gabby Windey and drag entertainer Shangela.
Bottom of the list: actor Jason Lewis at #15 and reality star Vinny Guadagnino at #16.
The end result is a combination of audience votes and jury scores. In the end, it was Lewis and his partner Peta Murgatroyd who had to pack their dancing shoes.
Now 15 couples are returning for an Elvis themed night of dancing next week.
