The two-hour premiere episode of ‘Come Dance with Me’ just aired on CBS and it was really an emotional night for everyone as 12 talented young dancers set the stage on fire by showing off their amazing dance moves. The dance reality show sees these dancers dancing their hearts out with their parents who are not trained in any form of dancing and have only come on the show to encourage their children.

During the premiere, we saw all the teams performing their favorite songs in front of Jenna Dewan, Tricia Miranda, and Dexter Mayfield. The father-daughter duo of Kennedy and Justin received the highest scores for the night (25) and floored everyone with their superb performance. Meanwhile, it was Ava-John and Lucas-Carolina who got the lowest scores of the night. The teams were ready to go for a dance “show off”, which will determine who’s gonna stay and who’s gonna leave.

However, none of the aforementioned teams went home tonight because of a tragic accident that took place during the rehearsals. The team of Maceo and Albert were the last to perform and while showing the video about how they were preparing for the show, we got to know that Albert got injured during the rehearsals and was taken to the hospital.
The duo was dancing when Albert suddenly stopped and got down on the floor. At first, it didn’t look like a big injury, but everything changed when he visited the hospital. Albert came back with crutches and a cast on his foot.

Host LL Cool J announced that Albert won’t be able to stay in the competition due to the injury and as a result, Maceo won’t be in the competition as well. But that didn’t stop Maceo from performing and he took the stage with his choreographer for a scintillating performance. His dad got really emotional and said he is proud of his son. Maceo ended his performance by showing a shirt that had Albert imprinted on it.

The show ended on a bittersweet note with one team getting saved from the elimination, but another team going home without even getting to dance. Life is cruel.

As far as the show is concerned, the teams will be performing the dance form of “jazz” next week. It will be interesting how teams perform when they go out of their comfort zone.
