For their first dance this week on “Dancing With the Stars,” Sean Lowe and partner Peta Murgatroyd took on the tango. Peta was urging Sean to have “aggressive arms” during their rehearsals — did he pull it off?

He did pretty well, actually. He definitely looked like he was concentrating really, really hard, but he was stiff (in a good way) and on point, we thought.

The judges weren’t quite so complimentary.

“You started extremely well, but you have a tendency of your feet don’t seem to be in the right place at the right time,” says Bruno. “You’re back to this inconsistency … focus in and get there,” adds Carrie Ann. “It was sharp and it was powerful … but you lost the fluidity, the quality of movement was gone,” says Len.

After his performance, fiancee Catherine Giudici looked pleased and she definitely pulled a face when Len called the dance “ugly.” Sean and Peta received three 7s for a 21, which left them at the bottom of the leaderboard after the first dance.

For the trio dance, they danced with Sharna Burgess on a jazz-y routine where Sean was a magician and the girls were his assistants. We actually thought it was worse than the first dance. Lowe was trying really hard, but he looked very uncomfortable and awkward.

“Plenty of magic with a little bit of tragic. I wish I didn’t watch your feet,” says Bruno. Yeah, that about sums it up.

What did you think, “DWTS” fans?
