'Dancing With the Stars' 2020 - Week 1 Recap, See the Scores!

The first night of Dancing With the Stars season 29 just ended and we have a full recap with all of the scores from the evening.

15 celebrities competed in the new socially distanced season that has a bunch of changes, including a new host and a new judge.

Tyra Banks has replaced longtime hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews. The new judge is former pro dancer Derek Hough, who replaced Len Goodman since he is unable to travel to the U.S. due to the pandemic.

During the season premiere, the long-awaited dancing debut of Tiger King‘s Carole Baskin happened and she danced to “Eye of the Tiger” as promised. She also earned the lowest score of the night, which many people predicted would happen.

The highest score of the night was a 21 out of 30, which two different celebrities earned.

The scores from this week’s dances will be combined with the judges scores from next week’s episode, as well as the audience’s votes from tonight, to determine who goes home at the end of week two.
