Kurt Warner shows stage craft
Kurt Warner is the first quarterback on “Dancing with the Stars” and tonight on the season premiere, he showed he has natural stage charisma.
Warner was at the middle of the pack after his Viennese waltz. They danced to “This Ain’t a Love Song” by Bon Jovi.
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba commented he had “potential” and “an easy connection” with his partner Anna Trebunskaya. He was naturally graceful and, yes, ladies, debonair. She cautioned that he needed to be careful not to cave-in his frame when he turns.
Bruno Tonioli was the judge who noted he had “natural stage craft.”
Head judge Len Goodman disagreed and found that Warner and Trebunskaya’s V. waltz had “little to recommend it.” The V. Waltz “needs grace, needs elegance and needs lyrical movement.” Goodman found their performance lacked all of those things.
In the V. waltz, Warner and Trebunskaya were ranked third with 19 points. Overall, they were tied for fourth place with reality TV (“The Hills”) star Audrina Patridge and Tony Dovolani.
