For her first dance on “Dancing With the Stars” Season 14, classical/crossover singer Katherine Jenkins and her partner Mark Ballas were handed the foxtrot, which is a deceptively simple-looking dance. But she pulled it off with so much grace and beauty that we agree with Carrie Ann – we could’ve been watching two pros out there.

Len says of the performance, “Wonderful musicality … I liked the detail that went on through the dance … I tell ya what, that was cracking.” And Bruno adds, “That was exquisite. The quality of movement is surreal. Week 1, where are you gonna go from here? You’re setting the bar so high that really you have a lot to live up to.”

Carrie Ann also said it got so quiet while Katherine was dancing – everyone was enraptured. The judges gave her a 26 (8 from Len, 9s from Carrie and Bruno), which is the highest score given out on a first show (in a tie with Jaleel White, who got a 26 moments later).

What did you think, “DWTS” fans? Does Katherine have your vote?
