‘DWTS’ Premiere: 7 Cringe-Worthy Moments! ‘The Situation’ Gets Unfairly Judged, Florence Henderson Goes Topless & More!

From Bristol’s incredible awkwardness, to The Situation’s cocky attitude,’s Kirstin Benson and Andy Swift have the most uncomfortable moments from the Dancing with the Stars premiere!

Season 11 of Dancing with the Stars premiered Sept. 20 — and true to form, the hit ABC dancing show didn’t disappoint in the entertainment category. Everything from between the cover band’s rendition of “California Gurls” to comedian Margaret Cho‘s constipated concentration look was filled with awkwardness… and we wouldn’t have it any other way. So, without further ado, here are Kirstin Benson and Andy Swift’s eight most cringe-worthy moments from the DWTS premiere:

1. The orchestra needs to stick to big band songs or just go away! Ke$ha shouldn’t be covered by strings. Seriously… listening to Katy Perry‘s “California Gurls” while Audrina Patridge danced almost made our ears bleed. The same could be said for The Situation‘s dance number, Taio Cruz‘s “Break Your Heart.” — KB

2. Did 19-year-old Disney channel star Kyle Massey seem a little TOO into his partner, Lacey Schwimmer? At first it was funny…then it was just creepy. We loved this little dude’s performance, but totally could have lived without his final grope at the end of the dance! Nasty. — KB

3. What was Margaret Cho thinking?! Instead of actually trying to dance to “We Are the Champions,” she tried to be funny by making a strange, constipated look the entire time. It wasn’t endearing. It wasn’t cute. And it definitely deserved the 15/30 judges’ score. — KB

4. The image of Florence Henderson lifting up her shirt will forever haunt me. MRS. BRADY, NO! — AS

5. Bristol Palin‘s shimmy was also super uncomfortable. She should have stuck with the whole “tame” thing because she does NOT do sexy well. — AS

6. Bristol’s awkwardness continued in her post-dance interview. She didn’t say anything, like, not a thing. — KB

7. We cringed the whole way through the judge’s unfair negative assessment of “The Situation”‘s performance. He was actually really good and, to be honest, we’re even starting to really like him as a person. — AS

The worst performance of the evening was by Brooke Burke. I’d give that a ‘4’ across the board.

Bristol was NOT the worst dancer. She is the only contestant being judged by who her mother is rather then by her dancing ability. She at least has some skills, unlike Margaret Cho. Sure, she was uncomfortable, she’s 19 years old and has no acting experience at all unlike several of the other contestants. I think, if she manages to stay, that she will suprise a lot of people. I hope people will vote for talent rather then animosity to parentage.

The only reason Bristol Pailin is on the show is her mother. You can’t have it both ways Sharon. Her only ‘skills’ if you can call them that are being 19, pretty and having youthful athleticism. Her partner danced circles around her literally for 90 seconds….there’s no talent in looking better on screen than a 76 year-old.

Len was far too harsh on Kurt. He wasn’t great, but he wasn’t the worst dancer either, and for Len to say he wouldn’t give him a better score next week was totally uncalled for.

Can’t stand Brandy. She never did her time in jail for killing that mother in a car accident. She shouldn’t even be on the show in the first place, not with her prior ballroom dance experience.

I agree on the Kurt thing. He wasn’t that bad and actually he was pretty good for the first dance. I don’t know what Len’s problem was.
