Premiere: Beach Boys open ‘Dancing with the Stars’ 1st elimination


On the season premiere of “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,” the first couple of the season is eliminated. Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award ® recipients The Beach Boys take to the stage and, in an uplifting Macy’s “Stars of Dance” performance, Haitian dancers honor victims of the Haiti earthquake, when “Dancing with the Stars the Results Show” premieres in its new time period, TUESDAY, MARCH 30 (8:00-9:00p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Stamos previously performed with the band in 1992, singing lead vocals for the song “Forever” for the album “Summer in Paradise.” They will be accompanied on the stage by professional “Dancing with the Stars” dancers Louis Van Amstel, Anna Trebunskya, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Cheryl Burke, Damian Whitewood and Ashly Costa. The Beach Boys are led by original band member Mike Love and long time performer Bruce Johnston, along with Christian Love, Scott Totten, Randell Kirsch, John Cowsill and Tim Bonhomme.

The first Macy’s “Stars of Dance” performance of the season will pay tribute to the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti in a special performance introduced by activist and celebrity Wyclef Jean via video message. Led by former World Mambo Champion and Haitian dancer Emmanuel Pierre-Antoine, several of Haiti’s top ballroom dancers will perform a mambo to Shakira’s “Hips Don’t Lie” on the “Dancing with the Stars” stage. Following the performance, viewers will be directed to’s “Hope for Haiti” site to donate funds to the charity.

In addition, all 11 “Dancing with the Stars” pros will perform a ballroom fusion number by Michael Jackson’s renowned choreographer, Travis Payne. Also, “Dancing with the Stars” Season 6 alum Adam Corolla will do a comic review of the previous evening’s show.
