The new season of Dancing with the Stars premiered on Tuesday September 26 2023 on ABC and Disney+
Following the performances of numerous celebrities, three couples tied for the evening’s lowest score: Harry Jowsey and Rylee Arnold, Matt Walsh and Koko Iwasaki, and Tyson Beckford and Jenna Johnson.
Walsh and Iwasaki were the bottom two couples after all votes were counted, followed by Mauricio Umansky and Emma Slater. Walsh and Iwasaki were eventually eliminated first on Tuesday, September 26.
While some duos stood out for their low scores, others impressed the judges. Jason Mraz and partner Daniella Karagach’s Cha Cha to Mraz’s song “I Feel Like Dancing” was named one of the night’s top performances by Carrie Ann Inaba.
Bruno Tonioli called Mraz “the one to watch” while Derek Hough said, “We have a contender” before revealing that he’d given Mraz a score of 7.
Bachelor Nation’s Charity Lawson also impressed the judges, earning the highest score of the night along with partner Artem Chigvintsev. “
