Nelly Dancing To His Own Song ‘RIDE WIT ME’ On DWTS

Hiphop star  Nelly  made his debut on Dancing With the Stars during the season’s premiere last night (September 14). Nelly’s first dance on “DWTS” was a salsa done to his throwback song, “Ride Wit Me” and included a backflip.

“Dancing with the Stars” is back and better than ever with a new, well-known and energetic cast of 15 celebrities who are ready to add some glitzy bling to their wardrobe and break in their dancing shoes. The competition begins with a two-hour season premiere, live, MONDAY, SEPT. 14 (8:00-10:03 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

 Taking to the floor with professional dance partner, Daniella Karagach, the rapper kicked off the show’s return with a salsa dance number to one of his biggest hits, “Ride With Me.” The highlight came when Nelly pulled off a backflip to cap off the dance. DWTS host and executive producer Tyra Banks  called the performance “sexy magic.”
