Dancing With The Stars Season 31 premiered, however, it was taped in a new studio. The popular dancing competition moved from ABC to Disney+, where it is available life to subscribers, but the tried and tested the concept of celebrities being matched with professional dancers has been maintained.
In a jive number set to the music of the Black Eyed Peas, Joseph Baena was accompanied by dancing pro and Season 30 winner Daniella Karagach. At the beginning of the competition, Baena focused on his physical power and struck a few postures that would make his father pleased before bursting into dancing. The judges and the crowd enjoyed the performance, but there is an opportunity for growth.

A total of 23 was awarded to Joseph Baena by the judges Derek Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba, and Bruno Tonioli, with Len Goodman awarding him a 5. Goodman specifically mentioned that Baena’s footwork was soft and floppy, a criticism that would never be leveled at the actor’s arms. The judges’ other comments mostly pointed out that Baena needs to work on his technique to raise his score for next week.
Dancing With The Stars Season 31: Carrie Ann Inaba gave Joseph Baena perhaps the most encouraging feedback, saying that he reminded her of Season 30 champion Iman Shumpert. Shumpert likewise had a less impressive first performance, but he used his athleticism to become better each week, ultimately upsetting the show’s veteran dancer JoJo Siwa.
It’s too early to tell whether Joseph Baena will be able to live up to the expectations. On the leaderboard for Dancing With The Stars Season 31, he now sits in the ninth position with a score of 24 out of 30. Actor Jason Lewis and dancer Peta Murgatroyd did not make it through the first round, but he did.
They’ll be spared the “all stirred up” atmosphere of Elvis week, which is guaranteed to precede the elimination of the next pair. If the people below Baena don’t make huge leaps in their dancing skills and pass him, he should be alright even if he just improves a little. In the near future, though, he will have to put as much effort into his dancing as he does into his workouts at the gym if he wants to continue on Dancing With The Stars Season 31.
It will be fascinating to observe how viewers react to Dancing With The Stars Season 31 on the streaming service Disney+(opens in a new tab). It’s important to keep an eye on it and the other new series premiering on TV in September.
