Amber Rose overcame her fears during the premiere of Dancing With The Stars and proved to the audience and judges that she has what it takes to go the distance.
During the Season 23 premiere, contestants were challenged to do the Foxtrot. Unsure that she’d be able to pull off the dance because she wasn’t a “princess” kind of girl, Amber’s partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, used his sense of humor to assure her that things would be okay.
“In this routine, I’m suppose to be a princess, but I’m not really that girl,” she said.
Amber went even further our of her comfort zone when she changed into her dancing attire. Dressed in a chiffon skirt and bodysuit covered in rhinestones, all Chmerkovskiy’s idea, she told her partner, “I’m more like leather, black sunglasses and combat boots.”

Out on the dance floor, the two nailed their performance, dancing the Foxtrot to Alessia Cara’s “Here.” The supportive crowd, which included Amber’s bestie Blac Chyna, cheered them on and the judges gave the pair a score of 24 for their performance with Julianne Hough telling the star, “You actually don’t give yourself enough credit. You are a princess, and you are that girl. When you’re dancing, you’re beautiful and you’re graceful.”
We’re looking forward to seeing what Amber does next week, we’re sure it’ll be an amazing performance.
