He grabbed her shoulders to “adjust her posture” again, just like he did in the GMA interview on Thursday.

here’s the thing, it was good and she has potential to go very far but i would expect nothing less of a person that has been training since she was 6. she dances on a tv show. i’ve seen the show, it has all types of choreography so this whole hip hop excuse is just that. it would be like christina aguilera doing a singing competition against a bunch of elementary students at a talent show. if she can win, she should but she should not be against people in their 40′s with no dance experience. it seems to be a fixed competition.

@trace Sabrina, Nicole, Mya and more have been on the show with dancing experience too. Nicole even used to practice ballroom. If they already have experience they are just expected to work harder and perfect it.

Ok people She’s on her way. I mean come on. That much is true. But let’s all say a prayer that she can somehow maintain that wonderful humility and warm personality that is the main reason we love her so much.

Zendaya looked great and sexy out there.

This was probably the most talked about performance of the night and rightly so. Contemporary dance hasn’t really been a staple of DWTS in past seasons but this time around we’ll be seeing a lot more of it. Zendaya and Val nailed their first performance which made me very happy and excited. After watching some of the other performances in my office at DISH I’m convinced that they could go all the way. It will be interesting to see what they’ll be doing next week. Dancing with the Stars comes on while I’m still at work and I kind of want to see what it’s all about so I’ll catch up on my way home. Thanks to the Hopper and DISH Anywhere I can turn my tablet or my Android phone into a TV wherever I am.

i love you zedaya you are so amazing you have my suppyou have totally nailed it!

Is it so wrong that Zendaya and Val have major chemistry? Kind of wishing she was older so they could date lol
But I’m not saying they should date now, that’d be wrong. And Val is really hot too.
