Hines Ward Scores on His Cha Cha on DWTS


hines-dwtsHines Ward is was a star on the Pittsburgh Steelers but Hines moved gracefully tonight on Dancing with the Stars season 12.

Hines Ward traded his cleats for some dancing shoes to appear on Dancing With the Stars Season 12.

Ward is a former player with the Pittsburgh Steelers who danced the cha-cha with Kym Johnson tonight. Hines Ward got good scores from the DWTS judges.

Dancing with the Stars judge Len Goodman said, “You continue the tradition of good footballers who can dance.”

Judge Carrie Ann Inaba called it the “sparkliest Cha Cha.”  DWTS judge Bruno Tonioli gave Hines snaps for his timing.

Hines Ward scored a 7 from each of the judges, for a total score tonight of 21 points.

In past seasons, professional athletes have been early front runners on Dancing with the Stars. So I guess it’s not that big of a surprise that Hines Ward did so well right out of the box tonight.
