Last night, Dancing with the Stars debuted its 17th season with an actually stellar cast that not only brings talent and fun, but some inspirational drama to the ballroom dance floor competition, and from the looks of the opener, this looks to be quite the competitive season on the ABC series.

Soap stars did exceptionally well! So let’s start with One Life to Live’s and High School Musical favorite, Corbin Bleu!  Corbin was trending all afternoon yesterday on Twitter with #teamcorbin, and expectations were high for him in the competition and he did not disappoint! What was disappointing for soap fans is that DWTS did not mention Corbin’s association with OLTL, but given the fact that ABC is in a lawsuit with Prospect Park over OLTL, you can sort of buy the rationale.

Corbin performed with Karina Smirnoff a contemporary style dance routine, which was first for Karina after 15 seasons on the show. The judges scored them a very respectable 24!

Pretty Little Liars, and Days of our Lives guest star, Brant Daugherty and his partner Peta Murgatroyd were actually the first couple to dance, and the self-proclaimed “single threat”  shows the potential to be “double threat” after he earned a 22 from the judges showing some sexy moves in their Cha Cha and the ability to be quite a threat moving forward in the competition.

However, Glee’s Amber Riley really wowed the ballroom audience with her moves, dancing with last season’s champ, Derek Hough!  Amber who said she wanted to show girls at home that you can be a girl with some size on her and still go out and show the world you can dance had the highest total of the night with 27.

And how about former Saved by the Bell and Showgirls star, Elizabeth Berkley Lauren?  She had Val Chemerkovskiy (GH’s Kelly Monaco’s former partner) as her dance partner and they earned a 24 with a stylish Contemporary Dance.

Elsewhere, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi showed she can bust-a-move in a solid routine with Sasha Farber scoring a 23!  This duo is the shortest in stature duo ever on the show!  But it was Valerie Harper, who is dancing at age 73 after being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, and Jack Osbourne, who is ballroom dancing for the first time who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, that really showed the inspirational spirit and power of the new season!  What about the cutaway to Jack’s mom, Sharon Osbourne in tears after watching her son’s dance performance?  Very touching!  Harper scored a 21 with her foxtrot,  and Osbourne scored a 23 with his foxtrot!

So out of the gate, what performance do you think was the best on last night’s Dancing with the Stars? Check out Corbin, Brant and Amber’s performance below! Then, who do you think should be the first to go?  Our pick to get the axe, Keyshawn Johnson!

to bad Corbin did not mention OLTL……..non of us should forget where we came from….regardless of law suites his OLTL stint was most recent therefore it should have been mentioned.
Brant, Corbin, Elizabeth, Amber were my favorites so far….

This is dwts best year…Snooki is boring,hope she leaves first, then itll be even better…im sick of overrated reality stars.

Corbin said people may know him from HS Musical and made no mention of OLTL…..wonder if ABC put a gag order on him so as not to draw attention to the legal drama. Was sad he didn’t mention OLTL and for that he does not get my vote…..even though he was the best dancer.

I’m sure he is not allowed to discuss OLTL on an ABC show,and even if he had during those pretaped interviews,it would have been edited out.

neither Corbin, or Brant…. mentioned Serials

sigh! it’s a career.

they were both quite good…..

I was pleasantly surprised… across the board…. the only one who seemed out of his element… was the football player. and Bill the science guy….

Amber, by far… is darned good.
Snooki, Nicole… was… damn… she’s got some natural that surprised me.
Jack… like his partner said… is light on his feet and with charm.

I wish the layout was the same as last year… when the “stars” were upstairs…. instead of mingling with the ‘audience’

DAYS Preview – Week of July 16, 2018

This week on Days of our Lives, hell hath no fury like a Gabi (Camila Banus) scorned!  Now out for revenge after receiving devastating news that she can never conceive another child, Gabi has switched the DNA results to make it appear to Abigail (Marci Miller) that Stefan (Tyler Christopher) is the father of her unborn baby.

How far will Gabi continue to sink to carry out this lie and to give payback to Stefan and Abigail as her alter “Gabby” for sending her to prison for a crime she did not commit? Is her former lover, Chad (Billy Flynn) collateral damage in all of this?

Meanwhile, Brady (Eric Martsolf) prepares to say goodbye to his son, Tate after losing custody of his son when the judge rules in Theresa’s (Jen Lilley) favor, but will fate intervene, allowing Brady to keep his son after all?

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Ben Fights Off His “Killer” Instincts As Rob Scott Wilson Delivers Power Performance Of The Week

In Days of our Lives’ version of Beauty and the Beast, in this case Ciara (Victoria Konefal) is the ‘beauty’ and Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) is the ‘beast’ she is to tame, last Thursday and Friday’s episodes illustrated to us where this duo could be heading in the future.

But first things, first.  The situation took a horrifying turn for Ciara, and for Ben, when he runs into the cabin beside himself!  He informs Ciara he went to the pharmacy to get his prescription but the police have swarmed the place.  Getting more and more agitated, Ben tells Ciara, he blames her, and her mother, Hope (Kristian Alfonso) for putting an APB out on him!  Ciara says she didn’t say anything to her mother.   But, Ben is losing his grip on reality fast and he desperately needs his meds.  He’s on edge and begs her not to call Hope, as he can’t go back to the sanitarium.  Ciara tries to calm Ben down and insists that she won’t to that to him, but suddenly, he becomes more unglued and stomps on her cell phone!

Next, Ben is hallucinating thinking he has handcuffed Ciara to the bed – the same thing he did to Abigail!   He sees Ciara in the handcuffs.  Ciara tells him she is not in them and to look at her hands.  All of a sudden, as she tells him she is on his side, and will help him through this, he calls her, “a lying little whore, just like the rest of them.”  Ben thinks she believes he is a ‘killer’ like everyone else, because she has now grabbed a knife to defend herself.

Ben tells Ciara that maybe he hasn’t changed at all, he is a serial killer, and now that he is off his meds he sees things very clearly. Ciara tries to calm him down and assure him everything will be OK.  When he closes his eyes and then opens them, he still sees that Ciara is handcuffed to the bed.  Crawling more and more out of his skin, Ben begins to hear his father, Clyde saying, “She’s lying to you, boy …trying to fool you … the same as that slut Abigail.”

Now, Ben hallucinates that Clyde (James Read) is in the cabin, egging him on to strangle Ciara, red necktie and all!  As Ben fights off his father’s attempts to make him do heinous things to Ciara, (he even hears Clyde telling him to burn down the cabin), yielding a knife Ciara calms Ben down saying Clyde is not really there.  Ben admits he doesn’t know what’s real anymore.  Ciara puts her knife down and offers her hand to hold on to. Ben takes Ciara’s hand and sits down as Clyde’s image fades away.  Ciara begs Ben to run to the pharmacy to get his meds. She promises she will not use her phone.  Ben exits.

However on Cliffhanger Friday, Ciara is engulfed in flames in the cabin, with no Ben to be found, and Rafe (Galen Gering) getting a signal from her cell directing him and Hope on a collision course with Ciara and Ben.

Throughout the two episodes of Ben’s battle with his sanity and how he is haunted by what he has done to others, and vacillating. between reality and delusional, Rob Scott Wilson illustrated once again, that given the material that his performances of Ben are mesmerizing. Wilson’s scenes make you stop whatever you may be doing, and take notice.  That is why Rob is our pick for the “Power Performance of the Week.”

So, what did you think of Rob’s performance?  What did you think of what happened in the cabin between Ben and Ciara? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
