Well the Season 17 started and I can honestly say, I am really surprised at the quality of Stars and the dances they did.

I do like the new format of the show. The pair getting judged right after the judges input and not having to run up to the skybox. Not too sure about having the judges and the cast sitting next to each other. Also, I’m not going to miss Night 2 of the show. I always thought it was a little too much.

So here is my 2-cents for Week 1:

Who I thought was the BEST: Even though I picked Elizabeth Berkley and Valentin Chmerkovskiy as my Early-Bird pick, I think I might have to change it to Amber Riley and Derek Hough. As much as I don’t want Derek to win again, Amber did a great dance.

Who I thought was the Worse: Sorry, but I have to go with Bill Nye and Tyne Stecklein. Out of all of the pair, they did just missed it.

Best song(s) of the night:

And new for this season: Which start, professional dancer, host or judge got on my nerves the most — Right from the start of the show, I have to give this title to Brooke Burke Charvet. At least we are seeing and hearing less of her (so far.)

Special kudos to Valerie Harper and Tristan MacManus. I hope this team stays around for a couple of weeks,. What an inspiration Valerie Harper is! Plus I still love Tristan!
