When Amber Riley Cha-Cha-Cha’d her way to the top score on Monday night’s season premiere of Dancing With the Stars she sure didn’t look like she had been going through grueling rehearsals. She blew her professional partner Derek Hough and the judges away with her performance and after the show admitted, “Glee is more grueling [than] DWTS. Trust me”.
But she may not feel like that in a few weeks according to 4-time Dancing With the Stars champion, Hough. “Ask her again in a few weeks. DWTS is live and it’s one take, so this is eventually going to be harder.”
She sure didn’t look like the grueling rehearsals were a problem for her Monday night when Amber became the contestant to beat this season. But she may have gotten a little boost from the audience. Her Glee costars and her family came out in full force, with Chris Colpher, Dianna Agron, Harry Shum Jr., Jenna Ushkowitz and Kevin McHale all sitting in the audience, which Amber credits to giving her more energy for her knockout performance. “[Seeing them] gave me a lot of energy because my whole entire family was out there also. They were in front of me [while I danced]. I asked them not to sit there and they did anyway!”
But she wasn’t the only Dancing With the Stars contestant who had some superstars come out to support them. Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart came out to cheer on her best friend, Leah Remini and her professional partner, Tony Donolavi. While Jack Osborn’s parents, Sharon and Ozzie sat ballroom side and teared up as their son performed a surprisingly fantastic fox trot with his partner Cheryl Burke.
Do you think that Dancing With the Stars is harder than Glee? Do you think that Amber will eventually feel the pain from the grueling rehearsals? Comment below and let us know.
