The season 24 premiere of Dancing With the Stars was full of sweet surprises!
We've covered all the big moments from Monday's show Here, but now, we're breaking down each piece of choreography. Who had the most difficult dance? Which star executed the best tricks? Which choreographer went above and beyond in the ballroom? The judges locked in their scores, and here at Et, we're doing the same. Keep reading for more!
Dance highlight: Ummm, the entire dance?! There were high kicks, dips and a beautiful spin towards the end of the number (and we can't forget about that flawless flip Simone executed during the show's opening number!). When it comes to level of difficulty, Sasha's choreography for week one exceeded our expectations, resulting in a well-deserved »
Chris Kattan knows he looked pretty stiff on the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars, but his performance is actually astounding considering he spent the last 20 years recovering from breaking his neck.
“I broke my neck and I had four surgeries regarding that the last 20 years basically. One in my back, one through the throat … I had to be careful for a really long time,” the former Saturday Night Live star, 46, told reporters after Monday’s episode of the ABC reality dance competition.
The actor revealed the injury was the result of “a stunt thing” but he declined to share any more details. »

Season 24 of Dancing With the Stars kicked off on Monday, with a whole new slate of competitors and the return of some of the show's best pros.
After the first night, it was pretty clear who has what it takes to go all the way, and who is likely going to get the ax within the first few weeks, though there were more than a few surprises! Here's a look at the night's strongest performers and weakest links.
Teaming up with Valentin Chmerkovskiy, the Fifth Harmony singer pulled off an impressive quickstep set to Erin Bowman's "Good Time Good Life" that impressed the judges. Together, the pair earned a 27 out of 40.
The pressure was high going into the premiere for the Glee alum and former backup dancer, given her extensive »
“Dancing With the Stars” returns tonight for Season 24 on ABC.
It may be the most exciting yet given the caliber of the cast — not in terms of name recognition (Bonner Bolton, anyone?), but for their dance experience.
In recent seasons, it’s been standout performances, not big names, that have drawn viewers week after week. Who can forget Nyle Dimarco turning in memorable routines week after week, despite being deaf. Dimarco was barely known beforehand (he won “America’s Next Top Model”) before claiming the “DWTS” mirror ball trophy in 2016.
The majority of the Season 24 contestants have had some dance or performing experience, which will raise the level of competition. Here are the top contenders.
The “Glee” actress was once a backup dancer for Beyonce, and not since Olympic ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White competed were contestants so heavily favored (Davis won in 2014). Morris competed on “So You Think You Can Dance” before »

"I'm feeling really good! My choreography plan, and I'm going to be completely honest, is doing just completely outrageous things," Witney dished. "Like, I'm just going to do it so that people remember that routine. There will be something in there, a moment, or a couple of moves -- something that people will go, 'You know what? That was really cool. I remember that over the other dances because it was completely different.'"
"That's what I'm going to try and do," she continued »

Wayne’s World, the blockbuster comedy starring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey based on the now-classic Saturday Night Live recurring sketch, turns 25 on Tuesday, Feb. 14 -- Happy Valentine’s Day! -- and we’re still in love.
It’s one of the best of the feature films to spin out of the long-running NBC sketch comedy series, but each has its own charm that could be worth revisiting or seeing for the first time. Do note our suggested binge-viewing order -- from best to worst -- if you want your party time to be excellent.
The Blues Brothers (1980)
