‘Dancing with the Stars’ 2015 Season 21 premiere recap: From Gary Busey crazy to Bindi Irwin energyHugh Jackman to play Steve Irwin? Bindi Irwin’s debut on the US version of Dancing With The Stars has earned her the moniker “wonder from Down Under” after an impressive jive in tribute to her late father.Here is my recap — plus scores from our judges Julianna Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli — of how our 13 celebrity dancers did on the Sept. 14 premiere. That’s the dream scenario Bindi Irwin, the 17-year-old daughter and figurehead of the Irwin family wildlife and entertainment empire, has allegedly shared with New Idea – albeit via one of the magazine’s much-loved “inside sources”. The bubbly 17 year old finished on top of the leaderboard during Monday night’s premiere after a flawless routine to none other than Elton John’s Crocodile Rock.

The competition begins with the two-hour season premiere, LIVE, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 (8:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/Adam Taylor) I was unable to watch this episode live last night because WSB-TV aired the Falcons victory over the Eagles. (Ironically, her husband Kroy Biermann plays for the Falcons.) I apologize for the belated nature of this recap. Talking exclusively to Us Weekly, the Australian wildlife conservationist admitted the excitement and emotion of the night nearly got the better of her as she took to the dance floor with partner Derek Hough for the show’s Season 21 premiere, and showed off her amazing new dance skills. “It was all I could do not to cry!” Irwin told Us after her show-stopping jive performance. “We came off stage and I couldn’t stop shaking,” she added. “I couldn’t believe it. The young television presenter has starred in several conservation shows on US and Australian screens including Bindi: The Jungle Girl, Bindi’s Bootcamp, and Steve Irwin’s Wildlife Warriors. Next September 4 will mark the 10th anniversary of Irwin’s death from heart failure after being hit by a stingray barb while filming near Port Douglas. Crowe, who counted Irwin as a friend, reacted angrily to such talk, calling it “appalling” that he was being “accused of doing commerce over his grave … it absolutely disgusts me”.

Bana had reportedly been approached by Irwin himself just months before his death, with the wildlife activist (and, some would say, tormenter) insisting that the star of Chopper should play him in any movie about him. Three hours before Turnbull left the Liberal Party room triumphant, a young woman had guessed her way to a quarter or a million dollars on Channel Nine’s Millionaire Hot Seat. Kim Zolciak Biermann & Tony Dovolani (Salsa, score of 12) – Does anyone else think if Kim was dancing with her husband that we would see any difference? My family was here watching.” “Her brother is equally as awesome as she is!” the handsome 30-year-old dancer told Us. “I saw him and he was like, ‘Oh my gosh I’m so proud of Bindi!

John Stainton, who directed much of Irwin’s TV work and his 2002 feature film The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, was quoted in November 2006 as saying that Irwin had approached Bana at an industry event in Los Angeles in January of that year with a proposal. “Instead of being sad every day of my life [over his death], I’m going to revel in the times we had together and celebrate Dad’s life and make sure his legacy continues.” An unassuming Erin Lamkin was introduced by host Eddie McGuire as someone who credited hypnotism with curing her chocolate and “coke” addiction (we assume Coca-Cola.

She’s so amazing!’ I’m like, ‘Y’all are like the coolest human beings and I’m so thankful you’re in my life right now!'” “Honestly, from day one to now, people wouldn’t even believe how far she’s come,” her dance instructor revealed. “The transformation is miraculous, literally. We’ve got her in little training heels right now.” But while the audience support and praise from Hough makes Irwin feel totally “privileged,” she revealed her true inspiration is her dad, Steve, who was featured in the show during a video montage of Irwin’s life. “I’m trying to carry on my dad’s legacy, and it is tough,” she admitted. “I think that people always say when people pass away that time heals all wounds.

Little did her fellow participants know that she was about leave them penniless, not through any great feat of intellect, or a penchant for studiously binge-watching Eggheads, but through sheer luck. Zolciak’s score of 12 is the second-lowest ever for a premiere dance over 21 seasons, tying Tucker Carlson season 3 and only behind the hapless Master P season two (a 10!). I think we all need to remember that it is always still tough and it’s like losing a piece of your heart. “But even though the sun will never shine as brightly, it will shine again.

Of course, some people are just popular and can stick around for weeks, no matter how bad they are. (We see you Gary Busey!) And a few talented nobodies do get cut early. The $1 million grand prize was knocked out early by teacher Joel Wylie, who incorrectly guessed the Australian Capital Territory was the least populous state or territory in Australia.

But not for long, landing on the correct answer, locking in Harris for $6000. “We don’t have a house … we still rent and that kind of thing and the wedding has been very stressful to plan … and we haven’t even gotten to the point of looking at a honeymoon.” And with that the $250,000 was hers. But only after McGuire had drawn out the suspense for a good few minutes, to give the show’s producers enough time to get the confetti ready, no doubt. Bruno: “Carry on like this and I promise you, Backstreet’s back this week and the next week and the next week, all the way to the finals.” Carrie said he started nervous but then let it kick in. The artist said he wanted to join the cast this season because his late mother loved dancing, and being a part of the show made him feel closer to her. The R&B singer and reality star was sharp and clearly came to play with a very difficult quick step. “High octane, high value, high class, incredible amount of content,” Bruno Torioli said.

Carrie Ann Inaba: “Blew me away.” Score: 23 (Carrie Ann: 8 Julianne: 7 Bruno: 7) Carlos PenaVega (“Big Time Rush” singer and actor) – This dude clearly has the moves and the confidence to win two months down the road. If Chaka Khan danced the cha cha as well as she sang, or her moves shone as brightly as her glitzy, rhinestone-embellished costume, she’d be more in our favor. Paula said that she hasn’t done any sort of organized dancing for 50 years so we can only imagine she greased her joints with butter to start feeling limber again. Paula and her partner did a quickstep to Hey, Good Lookin’ (how appropriate), and it looks like the recipe for her dress called for a healthy serving of grape soda.

To accommodate her, Louis Van Amstel gave her a very very slow quick step. “I had white underwear when I started but I probably don’t anymore,” she cracked. Don’t follow him.” Julianne said she was holding onto him “for dear life.” Sure, she got a relatively low score but I have a feeling her fan base may keep her in the competition awhile.

Given her popularity, I bet even with low scores, she could last a few weeks if she even improves just a little bit. “A glorious entrance for a glorious woman,” Julianne said kindly. “Her personality is superb,” said Bruno, who critiqued her dancer to work with her technique. Next week, you better go ‘Pow!’ ” Julianne: “That was slow motion.” Bruno: “This dance could be grounds for divorce.” She cried from the criticism.
