Based on her performance in the season premiere, Amanda Kloots is going to be one of the top contenders for this year’s Dancing With the Stars!
The 39-year-old The Talk co-host performed tango with partner Alan Berstein during premiere night on Monday (September 20) in Los Angeles.
During her intro, Amanda said, “I grew up dancing, I did Broadway for 17 years and then everything that happened to me, the pandemic and losing my husband, this opportunity is kind of a way to find myself again and to feel his presence every day… On July 5, 2020, I lost my husband from repercussions of COVID. I miss him every single day. I miss every single part of him. If Nick could’ve said anything to me before he passed, he would’ve looked at me right in the eye and said you better not stop living. You better keep going.”
Amanda and Allen received a score of 28 out of 40 for their performance.
They talked about Nick’s appearance after the performance. She said, “My good girlfriend said she had a dream that he was in the second balcony so that’s where I put him.”
