Dancing With the Stars 2015 Recap 9/21/15 – Season 21 Week 2 – Chaka Was Eliminated?
Dancing With the Stars is back with an all new cast of dancers who came out on the season premiere giving it all they had.
The premiere episode kicked off with the biggest dance number in Dancing With the Stars history, with the dance being filmed on Hollywood Boulevard. We saw each of the celebrity couples dance the Cha Cha, Salsa, The Foxtrot or the Jive. America has voted and this week we will see two episodes of Dancing With the Stars.
Dancing with the Stars returns for the second week of dancing with a two-night “Hometown Glory” event. There will be two nights of dancing and two eliminations this week. For the “Hometown Glory” shows, each couple will dance two new dance styles to songs that remind the celebrity and pro dancer of the places that shaped who they are today.
On Monday, the pairs will dance to a song that commemorates the celebrity’s hometown. At the end of the night, the couple with the lowest combined judges’ score and viewer votes from Week 1 will be eliminated.
On Tuesday we will see the pairs dance to a song chosen by the pro dancer which reminds them of where they grew up. Another couple will be eliminated on the Tuesday night show, based on the combined judges’ and viewer votes from Monday’s show.

Judges Comments: Julianne: pointed out that Nick slipped. Bruno: that woke me up. You forgot the footwork at times. I like your alert approach to the performance. It was a bit rough. CarrieAnn: It was rough. I’m surprised. I wouldn’t expect nerves to get you. I saw it last week too.
