Christina Milian dipped it low on the dance floor while making her debut on Season 17 of “Dancing With the Stars.” With her idol Jennifer Lopez looking on, she and her partner Mark Ballas performed a contemporary dance. Carrie Ann Inaba called her a “gorgeous dancer,” while Bruno Tonioli called it “introverted.” They received a score of 22/30 from the judges.
Despite her musical background, Milian was nervous about dancing. “I think people are gonna have higher expectations of me as a performer, but I’ve never danced with a partner before,” she said.
Once it was over, she felt happy with her performance. “Thank you to my partner @MarkBallas tonight was a really special performance,” she said. “And to all the supporters who watched, I love you! Man it was a long day today but by the time I performed I felt completely confident.”
Milian is also in the studio working on her fourth album for release on Young Money.
Watch her make her “DWTS” debut.
