NBC’s long-running series Dancing With the Stars is back for its thirty-first season, premiering with a bang on Monday, September 19, 2022, with Episode 1 entitled “Premiere Night Party,” where we saw 16 of our favorite celebrities having a go at the dance floor.

Last week’s episode, the second of the season, was completely devoted to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley. The episode opened with a boisterous performance by the Dancing With The Stars Pros to “Don’t Be Cruel” by Elvis, which was then followed by a series of acts representing the three main stages of the superstar’s career. Moreover, Week 2 introduced the rumba.

Episode 2 of the new season, released on September 26, saw an impending tie when the judges tried to save their favorite couple from the bottom two. Derek and Bruno chose to Teresa and Pasha,  while Carrie Ann and Len wanted to retain Cheryl and Louis. The tie was broken when Len as the head judge, decided to send Pasha and Teresa packing to save Louis and Cheryl.

However, prior to the episode’s airing, Dancing With the Stars revealed that Danielle Karagach, partner to bodybuilding fame Joseph Baena, had tested positive for COVID-19 and was thus in self-quarantine. A representative of the show added that in her place, Alexis Warr, a member of the dance trouple would step in.

It is worthy to note that the unique reality series follows strict COVID protocols in that everyone who has been in close contact with the carrier has to go through tests, and those tested negative are allowed on the show only if they wear masks under all circumstances. The same was applied to Danielle.

Dancing With the Stars Plot

In this intense reality TV competition, celebrities are paired up with professional ballroom dancers who act as their partners to perform live in front of the nation, in addition to a studio audience. The performance of these pairs is then evaluated by an expert panel of seasoned judges.

Moreover, the audience also gets to play a role as they vote for their favorite couple from their home, which determines their future in the competition. In due course, in each week, one pair with the lowest scores and votes gets eliminated from the show.

Dancing with the Stars Season 31 premiered on Disney+ on Monday, September 19, 2022, making it the first-ever live competition series to air on Disney’s streaming platform.
