Season 30 of 'Dancing With The Stars' is back with a bang with its second episode and it's going to be a tough task to keep track of all the splendid performances as the celebrities dance their heart out on the stage. As the contestants take the dance floor, all eyes will be on judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Derek Hough as they dole out their scores as the eliminations on the show begin. 

Among the contestants is 'Bling Empire' star Christine Chiu. She has been partnered with pro Pasha Pashkov, the duo danced the tango and came out with a decent score of 25 out of 40.  For this week's performance, they did the Salsa to the song ' Despacito' by Luis Fonsi in a hot, red performance. Here's what fans thought of the performance.

Judge Derek commented Chiu had good body awareness, hip action and started strong but went stiff later and scored her a 6. Judge Bruno advised to be careful of the dismount and to be consistent and gave them a 6. Judge Carrie Ann called the performance 75% awesome with lot of passion but said to be careful of the dismount and turns as she scored them a 6. Judge Len kept it short saying he doesn't think she'll be going home giving her a score of 6 for a total of 24 out of 40. The episode saw her in the bottom two alongside Martin Kove due to low votes but was saved when the judges chose to give her their votes. We will see Chiu return for 'Britney Week' so look forward to her performance. Here's how fans reacted.
