Dancing With The Stars Season 5 - 2007- 5/24/2007

Last night kicked off season 5 of Dancing With The Stars. This season, there will be 12 celebrities performing instead of the usual 10. The show started the night with the women all competing:

1. Melanie Brown and Maksim Chmerkovskiy - Melanie Brown of Spice Girls fame started off strong. She had a natural grace and style and her huge Spice Girls fan base should take her a long way in the competition.

2. Sabrina Bryan and Mark Ballas - Sabrina Bryan of the Cheetah Girls was simply amazing. She came out as quick and polished on night one as most celebrities do in the finals. Sure, she packs a few extra pounds and that dress looked awful, but she can cut the rug with the best in the world. She has a background in hip-hop that seemed to make it hard for her to learn a different style, but I have a feeling she will be very tough to beat and will go all the way to the end. It will be interesting to see how she does with some of the less-energetic dances. She has a huge fan following from her role in Cheetah Girls and should be a tough contender.

3. Jennie Garth and Derek Hough - Jennie Gart of Beverly Hills 90210 fame gave a solid and sexy performance. Her fan support may be smaller than the others but she may be able to compensate with talent. She certainly turned in a solid performance that was fun to watch.

4. Josie Maren and Alec Mazo - Josie Maren is a multi-talented model and actress with an iron in every fire. She is a supermodel, actress and business woman with her own line of cosmetics. Models usually don't fare very well in Dancing With The Stars (DWTS) and the judges were unduly harsh with her on her first night, but I saw a fire in her eyes that told me that she can be a tough competitor. If she returns she may toughen up and become quite a threat. I must say she is drop-dead gorgeous and that never hurts.;)

5. Marie Osmond and Jonathan Roberts - Marie Osmond the darling of Donnie and Marie fame is still America's darling according to the audience reaction following her performance on the first night. She has a HUGE fan base and may go a long, long way.

8. Jane Seymour and Tony Dovolani - Jane Seymour former Bond girl and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman is another of the most-gorgeous women on the planet. I must say the casting director of DWTS has an eye for beauty.;) She oozes style and grace. It will be interesting to see how she does with some of the more-energetic dances.

One thing is for sure, the 2007 season of Dancing With The Stars will be exciting and entertaining...enjoy the show.
