The 16th season of ABC’s incredibly successful televised competition Dancing With the Stars is officially on! Zendaya Coleman and Val Chmerkovskiy were the first dancers on the first night – and they made it a very memorable one.
Check out their contemporary dance above.
Zendaya might be the youngest contestant ever to be on the show but, by the time she and Val had completed their gorgeous, well done routine, she had all three judges eating out the palm of her hand.
“Three words I’d never thought I’d say week one: That was great,” Len Goodman commented.
“Sweet 16 and a superb debut on Dancing With the Stars! I cannot wait to see you do other dances. It’s so inspiring seeing a young girl doing so well,” Bruno Tonioli chimed in, clearly ecstatic by what he’d just seen.
