As for the season premieres, Dancing with the stars‘ big Disney+ debut gets A’s across the board. The transition from network to streaming went smoothly (and no server crashes) and fans of the franchise were treated to two ad-free hours of competition. And what a match it was! Judge Len Goodman was shocked that he handed out just as many 7’s and 8’s in the first week. If last night was any indication, we are in for a fantastic season. But as always, there’s one dance couple that won’t be on show next week, let alone the rest of the season. So, who went home after being eliminated during the vote? Dancing with the stars last night? We are here to tell you the news – SPOILERS forward.
Who went home? Dancing with the stars Season 31, Episode 1?
The star/pro combo knocked out in week one was actor Jason Lewis and professional Peta Murgatroyd. The pair danced the cha-cha on “Get Lucky,” but the song title didn’t get across to Lewis. He admitted in his introductory video that he is a terrible dancer and was best known for “whiskey dancing” and “tequila dancing.”
The judges clocked some timing issues and noticed Lewis was counting to himself during the performance. His big problem? Always leading with his heel instead of his toe during a cha-cha-cha! The pair took a score of 18 – which was actually the second lowest score of the night. That dubious honor went to Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino and Koko Iwasaki with a 17.
Who has the highest score on Dancing with the stars Season 31, Episode 1?
That honor went to TikTok star Charli D’Amelio, who actually has a ton of professional dance experience. That was evident from her team-up with partner Mark Ballas. The two took the stage and beat a cha-cha-cha with Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage (Major Lazer Remix)”, proving that this season of DWTS isn’t your mom’s season? DWTS… and that’s saying something because Charli’s mother Heidi is also participating DWTS.

The scores from last night’s premiere shocked as follows:
- 32 – Charlie & Mark
- 29 – Wayne & Witney
- 28 – Selma & Sasha, Shangela & Gleb, Gabby & Val
