The 11th season of Dancing With The Stars premiered last night on ABC. While the general consensus amongst critics seems to be that this cast is not as good as last season’s, E! Online is reporting today that with over 21 million viewers tuning in last night, the ratings are up 3.5 million viewers from last fall’s premiere.

Last night brought us some great surprises, Kyle Massey anyone? While some other stars failed to sizzle on the dance floor. Three of the stars tied for last place with a score of 15. Those stars are The Situation, Margaret Cho, and David Hasselhoff. In the case of The Situation, he had a bit of an excuse as he only had 6 days to practice before the premiere, compared to the 3 weeks his competitors had.

The belles of the ball last night would have to be Brandy and Jennifer Grey. Brandy received praises from the judges for her graceful Viennese Waltz to go along with her score of 23. Jennifer Grey also danced the waltz following her emotional practice session with partner Derek Hough. Jennifer scored the highest point of the night, receiving a 24. Trying for second place alongside Brandy was Kyle Massey, who shocked the audience with his great Cha Cha Cha performance.

Despite the comparisons to Kate Gosselin, Bristol Palin gave a solid performance, receiving a score of 16. The most talked about event of the night however came in the form of an absence from the show. Despite numerous reports from multiple media outlets confirming that Sarah Palin would be at the show last night, the former Governor of Alaska ended up being a no show. According to the Today Show, Sarah had a last minute change of heart and decided she did not want to steal the spotlight away from daughter Bristol. Sarah will reportedly attend next week’s show.

Unlike last season, one of the dancing couples will be eliminated during the first week of competition. The results show airs tonight on ABC at 9/8c.

Dancing With The Stars

The 11th season of the hit series Dancing With The Stars is set to premiere tonight on ABC!

So what can we expect during the 2-hour premiere? TMZ is reporting that the most shocking performance will come from teen mom Bristol Palin and her partner Mark Ballas, as the two will dance the Cha Cha Cha to “Mama Told Me (Not to Come).” Bristol will reportedly rip off some “tear-away clothes” during the performance.

It gets even better as TMZ also confirms Bristol’s mom Sarah Palin will be in the audience tonight. Sources tell TMZ security has been heightened at CBS Television City in LA, the place where DWTS is broadcast.

In other DWTS news, Brandy and her partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy are said to be the ones to beat, while The Situation is at the biggest disadvantage, as his competitors were able to get in two extra weeks of practice, while he was still filming the 3rd season of the Jersey Shore.

DWTS 11 premieres tonight at 8/7c on ABC.

The photos are here! ABC has released the official costume photos of the Dancing With The Stars season 11 cast.

There is however one cast member missing from the photos, as MTV reality star, The Situation, was still filming the 3rd season of the Jersey Shore when the photos were taken.

Above is this season’s Kate Gosselin Bristol Palin with partner Mark Ballas. Oddly enough, Bristol mentioned last week that she planned on wearing the most modest outfits and planned on being the most dressed contestant. Perhaps the above outfit is conservative in Alaska.

Bristol also appeared on the Tonight Show Friday, during which she denied the rumors of being a diva. “Literally, I was thinking about it today: the only thing I’ve ever asked for is a velcro mic pac so I don’t have to wear it on my belt loop,” she said. “That’s the only thing I’ve ever asked for.”

As for how she got on the show, Bristol mentioned she received a text message while working as an office manager at a dermatologist’s office in Alaska, and jumped at the opportunity. “Within the next week, we had signed the contract. Some people are like, ‘Do you really want to be in the spotlight?’ but I’m having fun with it,” said Bristol.

And when it comes to her dancing skills, the 19-year-old admits she is “so uncoordinated and I don’t have any rhythm.” Her partner Mark however reveals Bristol has been making good progress in her dancing.

The favorites to win at the moment? Brandy and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy according to Las Vegas odds.

Levi JohnstonBristol Palin

Buckle up folks, it seems we have us an all new Jon Gosselin/Kate Gosselin 2.0.

Just a day after E! Online broke the news of Bristol Palin joining the cast of Dancing With The Stars, Bristol’s baby daddy/2x former fiance/Playgirl model Levi Johnston is now adding his own 2 cents to the news.

Levi, 20, appeared on CBS’ “The Early Show” this morning and spoke about Bristol and his mayoral race. Yes, he’s planning to run for mayor in his hometown of Wasilla, Alaska.

See, Bristol, 19, has criticized Levi for being obsessed with fame in the past, even citing that as the reason she ended their second engagement. So upon hearing the news that Bristol will be a contestant on the upcoming season of “Dancing with the Stars,” Levi stated, “I don’t think I’m any more obsessed with making a career out of this than she is.”

He added, “Obviously she’s doing Dancing with the Stars. I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed with any of it. I’m just taking it as it comes.” Bristol has also previously appeared on an episode of ABC’s “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.”

Popeater is also reporting today that a source close to Bristol tells them she “is excited and scared and hopes she gets Maksim Chmerkovskiy as her partner.”

In other DWTS related news, more names continue to leak out before the official Monday announcement from ABC. E! News is reporting today that Brady Bunch mom Florence Henderson, Singer Michael Bolton, former NBA Player Rick Fox, and Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey have all been added to the cast.

The above stars join the previously confirmed Brandy, The Situation, Audrina Patridge, and David Hasselhoff.

E! also confirms the following stars will not be a part of the upcoming season – Kirstie Alley, Landon Donovan, Troy Aikman, or anyone for the Bachelor(ette) franchise.

With less than a week until the season 11 cast of Dancing With The Stars is officially unveiled, the cast rumors continue to spread like wildfire.

So let’s break down who is in and who is out -

Confirmed – Multiple media outlets have confirmed the following “stars” have signed on do to the show. Jersey Shore’s The Situation is a done deal according to Ok magazine and other media outlets.

The Hills star Audrina Patridge and R&B singer Brandy have also signed the dotted line according to Perez Hilton.

Likely In – Not confirmed but likely in are retired NFL player Kurt Warner, Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky and her fiancé, Roberto Martinez, who according to E! Online and OK magazine, have yet to finalize their deal. Also heavily rumored to be in? Soccer player Landon Donovan and Michael Bolton.

Long Shots – There are also rumblings that the show wants Jon Gosselin, you know, following the media blitz his ex-wife Kate Gosselin brought to the show last season. Bravo Housewife Teresa Giudice also seems to be a long shot, as there have been no reports about her joining the show since her tweets about doing the show in late July. Though we do think adding a Bravo housewife to the show would be genius, maybe just not Teresa.

Other long shots include David Hasselhoff, Lindsay Lohan, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
