Artem Chigvintsev Thinks Maureen McCormick Deserved Higher 'DWTS' Premiere Scores - Read His Week One Blog!

Every week, professional dancer Artem Chigvintsev will be writing a blog for JustJared.com and sharing exclusive behind-the-scenes photos from Dancing With the Stars.

For week one, Artem opens up about his Viennese Waltz with partner Mauren McCormmick, set to “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” which earned them 22 points.

“I am so proud of Maureen, I think that she did amazing,” Artem writes. “Obviously we need to clean and fluff up the routines. The scores were kind of lame, I think she definitely deserved higher, but maybe I’m bias. I’m glad to have the first dance out of the way. I’m excited for the season!”

Ryan Lochte Ambushed on 'DWTS': Protesters Storm Stage in New Footage - Watch

Ryan Lochte was the subject of an attack on stage last night (September 12) during the live premiere of Dancing with the Stars, and now there’s new video footage of the incident.

Host Tom Bergeron explained that the protesters, who stormed the stage to send a message to Ryan, were screened as normal audience members. They were dressed in t-shirts that read “No Lochte.” The attack was aimed at Ryan, who had been involved in lots of legal drama for his part in the Rio robbery lie.

“Two individuals stormed the dance floor tonight and were immediately subdued and escorted out of the building,” producers told THR. “The matter is now being handled by the authorities.”

Ryan Lochte Gets Attacked By Audience Member During 'DWTS' - Watch Now

Ryan Lochte just finished his first performance on the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars and proceeded to have a scary encounter with an audience member!

While being critiqued by Carrie Ann Inaba, someone rushed the stage and attempted to attack Ryan. The man was a part of a group of men who were booing and ripped open their shirts to reveal the round symbol for “No Lochte” on their chests, according to TMZ.

The camera remained on Carrie Ann, who repeatedly told the attacker to back off while he was tackled by security. The show went straight to a commercial but when they returned Ryan opened up about the experience.

“So many feelings going through my head right now. A little hurt,” he explained.
