‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 17, Episode 2 Recap: Christina Milian Embraces Latin Night, Keyshawn Johnson Goes Home

Corbin Bleu Dancing With the Stars

Tensions in the ballroom were already high as the first celebrity would get knocked off at the show’s close on Monday night’s episode (Sept. 23). Energies were clearly up as it was Latin night. Would Christina Milian show off her skills to keep her place in the competition? Featuring the samba, rhumba, paso doble and jive (not really Latin but grouped in there anyway), the stars got their hips shaking and feet kicking in all the right places.

While all the couples entertained last night, it was obvious that Christina Milian and Mark Ballas’ ‘Game of Thrones’-inspired paso doble number to Lady Gaga’s ‘Applause’ and Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Val Chmerkovskiy’s samba were some of the favorites. And let’s not forget Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff’s jive, which paid homage to Bleu’s ‘High School Musical’ days.

There were a few special guests in the audience — Steven Tyler, Julianne Hough and Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, who were there to support their son, Jack. Even though he was worried about his skills, he impressed himself with a great score of 24 after doing the rhumba with his partner Cheryl Burke.

Although the night was like one big party, things turned sad when it was announced that Keyshawn Johnson would be the first celebrity to go home. The former NFL player and ESPN commentator’s performance in the previous week wasn’t up to par.

With 11 couples left, the competition is heating up. Check in next week to see who’s on top and who’s heading home.
