Debbie Gibson and Alan Bersten kick off Ballroom Night, dancing a quickstep to “This is My Time” by Amy Stroup.

Len Goodman praises the speed of the song, but says it needed to be a bit more controlled. He adds, however, that she looked very confident. Bruno Tonioli says that their chemistry was “sizzling.” He suggests to Gibson that she be a bit more precise in her footwork. Carrie Ann Inaba says she loved Gibson’s shapes and movements. They score a 20 out of 30.

Watch Debbie Gibson and Alan Bersten’s Vibrant Quickstep

It’s Ballroom Night on the “Dancing with the Stars” dance floor! On Monday night, 13 couples will dance a tango, quickstep, foxtrot or Viennese waltz to both classics and recent hits alike. One couple will be sent home tonight and another couple will be sent home during Tuesday’s Latin Night as part of this season’s first double elimination. Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke and Barbara Corcoran and Keo Motsepe are at the bottom of the leaderboard, while Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold and Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas tied for the top spot with 22 out of 30 points during last week’s sparkling premiere.

“Dancing with the Stars” Social Media Reactions

According to ABC, Gibson is a singer-songwriter, actress and dancer. “A music prodigy, Gibson exploded on the Billboard Pop Charts at the tender age of 16 with the self-penned ‘Only in My Dreams.’ The ‘Original Pop Princess’ quickly became the youngest artist ever to write, produce and perform a No. 1 hit song, ‘Foolish Beat,’ and entered the ‘Guinness Book of World Records.’ To date, she is still the youngest female to hold that record. She has sold more than 16 million albums worldwide, performed for British Royalty and hosted ‘The American Music Awards,’ produced by friend and legend Dick Clark.”
