Even without his signature Carlton move Alfonso Ribeiro has got the groove to get it done! Ribeiro landed, along with his partner Witney Carson, in first place tonight on the season premiere of DANCING WITH THE STARS: Season 19. Ribeiro and Carson received a 36 out of 40 for the night while fashion designer Betsey Johnson, along with her partner Tony Dovolani, came in last with a disappointing 20. But, the biggest surprise of the night was…Tommy Chong, who along with Peta Murgatroyd, gave us some smooth moves and swagger not before seen from a man in his 70s. Chong scored higher than Antonio Sabato Jr.! Huh? Still, the scores are very close, off by one point or two all the way down the line to Johnson and Dovolani. It is an open race for most. Stay tuned!
