‘Glute Force!’ Billy Bush Congratulates James Van Der Beek on His ‘DWTS’ Debut


There were ruffles, feathers, spray tans, and splits as “Dancing with the Stars” returned with a boom!

Sailor Brinkley-Cook shined as she took over for her injured mom Christie Brinkley, Sean Spicer shimmied in neon green, and more stars hit the dance floor, but in the end it was James Van Der Beek who owned the night.

Former pro dancer Sharna Burgess hit the premiere for “Extra” and spoke with the teams backstage. Billy also jumped on a FaceTime call with James to congratulate him on his debut and joked about how he crushed it with “glute force.” Continuing the fun, Bush went on to introduce him to the Van Der Cheeks Rules fan club!
