Review: Dancing With the Stars 13, "Week 1 Results"
(S1302) It was inevitable. One of the twelve stars competing on this season's Dancing With the Stars had to be the first one to go home after shaking and shimmying on the dance floor for their first and last time.

While I did enjoy watching the Monday night performance of all the couples, there are two things on Tuesday night's result show that I liked  watching a little more. For one, the performance by the professional dancers is always amazing. This week they danced to Lady Gaga's "Edge of Glory." And the musical acts are entertaining as well. Harry Connick Jr., who will be performing on Broadway later this year, performed along with LMFAO, who sang their summer hit "Party Rock Anthem." This promptly got judges Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli dancing on the judges' table. Bruno somehow ended up shirtless; thankfully once the cameras were back on him he was fully clothed once again.

While the scores from Monday night did have a decent range, between fourteen and twenty-two, I personally didn't feel that any one performance was completely horrendous. I am sure anyone who has watched DWTS in the past can remember a few contestants who rightfully deserved to go home right off the bat, but somehow didn't. I must say that my favorite dance came from Anna and Carson. While theirs wasn't technically superior it was definitely superior in the entertainment aspect. From what I saw of the behind the scenes footage it appears that this cast is a lot more laid back compared to those of past seasons. They just seemed to be joking around with one another a lot more.Then again it's still the beginning and tensions aren't running that high yet.

After an hour of announcing which couples were safe and which ones were in jeopardy, it came down to Nancy and Tristan and Peta and Metta (previously known as Ron Artest), who weren't necessarily in the bottom two but had to sweat it out to the end to find out their fate, and in the end its Metta World Peace going home first.

Next week the eleven remaining couples will either be dancing the jive or the quick step.
