Aesthetically, Kate looked great! We're digging her longer locks and spray tan, but that's where the compliments end. The dancing was stiff and uncomfortable, earning her a measly 16 out of 30 points.
It was really obvious that Kate was super nervous and was trying really hard to remember her steps. We'll give her a break since it was her first night, and, as Carrie Ann Inaba pointed out, she doesn't have any formal training in showbiz like most of her competition.
Kate blamed the mediocre performance on her "insecurities," so we'll see if she gets over them by next week.
Check out Kate's performance below and tell us what you think. Did she deserve a 16?
