Jimmie Allen Earns Rave Reviews on ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Debut {WATCH}

Jimmie Allen made his debut on the new season of Dancing With the Stars on Monday (Sept 20).

Before the show, the singer shared backstage footage on his Instagram story saying “I’m not going to lie to you, I’m nervous” and joked that his outfit resembled a trash bag.

He kicked off his first dance with a tango to “The Way I Are” by Timbaland ft. Keri Hilson, D.O.E. and Sebastian. “You’re going to go a long way. You’ve got great potential,” judge Len Goodman told Allen. “This dance does not suit your personality. You’re a cool sort of a guy.”

Jimmie received a total score of 22 out of 40 and said following his performance, “I’ve sung on television before, but to dance on national television, it was a whole different thin. It’s a cool experience and we’re glad to be here.”

Dancing With the Stars airs on Mondays on ABC at 8PM ET.
