The country stars were shining brightly Monday night (March 18) as ABC’s Dancing With the Stars kicked off its 16th season. Kellie Pickler sparkled—literally and figuratively—and Wynonna held her own in the first week of the new season.
We watched with bated breath as Kellie Pickler took to the dance floor with partner Derek Hough to do the cha-cha. Kellie really wowed the judges and fans with her high energy and awesome rhythm—not to mention her killer body—earning her a score of 21 out of 30 and putting her in a tie for second place with Olympic gold medalists Dorothy Hamill and Alexandra Raisman.
Later in the show Wynonna and partner Tony Dovolani—who was Sara Evans’ partner years ago—cha-cha-cha’ed their way to an 18 out of 30, tying her with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump and champion boxer, Victor Ortiz. Wynonna showed she has rhythm and soul (which we already knew) as she moved across the dance floor. Fans enjoyed seeing sister Ashley Judd and mama Naomi Judd cheering Wy on in the audience.
