Although his dance skills are still lacking, Matt James is coming out of his shell on ‘DWTS’, leaving fans surprised.
For some of the celebrities on ‘Dancing With The Stars’, nailing each performance almost comes naturally. For others, it seems like there is a lot more practice and hard work involved. But, with each dance being technically sound, these stars have no other option but to put in the hard work.
Although he is not at the top of the game, Matt James is most certainly trying. After ‘Britney Week’, James was all set for ‘Disney Heroes Night’, seeing that he was in on the joke that fans thought he looked like Frozone from ‘The Incredibles’. James was thrilled (to say the least) to play the part, as he and pro Lindsay Arnold danced the Quickstep to ‘The Incredits’ from ‘The Incredibles’.

Len Goodman pointed out that while his technique wasn’t great, the performance was fast and energetic. Bruno Tonioli joked that as Frozone, Matt James was defrosting nicely and his steps were getting better. Carrie Ann Inaba appreciated James’s effort and noted that he needs to continue to work on his moves. Derek Hough felt as though the performance was well done and entertaining. The judges scored James 26 out of 40 for his performance this week.
Fans continue to have a love-hate relationship with the former ‘The Bachelor’ star. While some are quick to write off his performances, others seem to enjoy that James seems more like himself than during his season.
“So we tuned in late to #DWTS and my mom goes “How’s Matt James doing? I hope he doesn’t dance the way he kisses.” And honestly, she’s not wrong” tweeted a fan.
“Me everytime Matt James comes on TV: #DWTS” added another.
