‘Dancing with the Stars’ Season 13 Premiere Event Raw Notes and Judges’ Quotes

Here are my raw notes and commentary on this season’s first Dancing With the Stars episode along with some of the judges’ quotes I found most interesting or inspiring. I’ve been taking notes for every Dancing With the Stars show so far this whole season but had not done anything with them yet. They are not doing anyone any good just sitting on my computer. Please forgive the lack of punctuation, correct grammar, etc. These truly are raw notes but I hope you enjoy them in the spirit they were written, which is for fun and enjoyment of the only show I faithfully stay up to watch on the same night it airs, Dancing With the Stars.
