Dancing With the Stars 2015 , Season 21: Cast and Bindi Irwin, Nick Carter performance

Dancing With the Stars 2015 is becoming bigger hit than previous seasons. There is no denying the fact that every year it attracts far larger crowd than the previous seasons. People are not tiring seeing celebrities and their professional dancers take to the floors and entice them.

There is no denying the fact that even though celebrities actually attract viewers, but it is professional dancers who give the occasion a really respectable touch. But despite all their dexterous dance moves, these professional dancers don’t get the sort of respect and fame that is actually due to them.

On Monday night as many as 13 celebrities and their skillful partners took to the dance floor on the season 21 premiere of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.”

bindi-IrwinThis was simply a blast of emotions and excitement. The premiere lasted for more than two hours and at the end of it, conservationist Bindi Irwin and singer Nick Carter ended at the top of the leaderboard with 24 out of a possible 30 points each. Irwin performed his jive well, while Carter started the show with cha cha. Reality TV star Kim Zolciak-Biermann finished at the bottom with just 12 points for her boring salsa.

This is a competition where only performance doesn’t matter, people’s support is equally important for the performers. The competitors are given scores by the judges and they earn votes from the viewing audience. The couple with the lowest combined score will be eliminated on Monday. The judges’ panel comprised Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Julianne Hough. Head judge Len Goodman will not appear this season, co-host Tom Bergeron said.

In the meantime Bindi Irwin, 17, earned a standing ovation for her spirited jive with pro partner Derek Hough. “That was the best performance of the night!” Hough told Irwin. Inaba said Irwin’s energy was contagious, while Tonioli called the conservationist “the wonder from down under” and praised her “adorable charm.” The Backstreet Boys band member Nick Carter performed a cha cha that impressed the judges, earning him a tie at top position next to Irwin. Inaba said Carter did not start out strong but the performance improved.
