Janel Parrish Gives a “Bang Bang” Performance While Bethany Mota “Shakes It Off” on DWTS Premiere

janelparrish-dwts-091614The young talent shined on the opening night of “Dancing with the Stars” season 19 on Monday.

The dancing competition usually only has one young contestant, but this year they have three – Janel Parrish, Bethany Mota & Sadie Robertson – and all three lit up the dance floor and impressed the judges.

“Pretty Little Liars” star Janel Parrish was the first of the three to take the stage and she channeled her inner Ariana Grande with the outfit and hair to dance to “Bang Bang.” She earned a score of 29 and the judges said she has great potential and we agree.

Next up, “Duck Dynasty” star Sadie and her partner Mark Ballas Cha Cha’ed their way through Katy Perry’s “Birthday,” impressing the judges especially since the only place Sadie has danced before is in her bedroom. Did you know dancing isn’t allowed at her school? Julianne Hough called it a real life Footloose.

The last up for the young contestants was Youtuber Bethany Mota and her partner Derek Hough. The duo did the jive to the hottest song right now – Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.” The dance not only impressed the judges but Ms Swift as well.

Tune in tonight to find out which of the couples will be eliminated. Which dance from the night was your favorite? Who are you rooting for?
