Priscilla Presley and Louis van Amstel presented their elegant foxtrot. At 62 years old, Priscilla�s the oldest woman to ever dance in the competition, but her precision timing and smooth lines outshined the earlier offerings.
As Louis led her across the floor, Elvis� ex really took to the ballroom business. Though she looked nervous at first (or happy or possibly even angry � it�s hard to tell), Priscilla eased into the first real quality number of the night, much to the judges� approval. Len called it �a proper foxtrot,� and like Bruno and Carrie Ann, awarded her an eight.
The audience cheered and applauded throughout her entire dance. And it was much more than anyone else received during their performances.
Lisa Marie was among the audience. She seemed very proud as she smiled and applauded for her Mom. The judges loved Priscilla crowning her the queen of the dance floor. All three judges gave her a score of 8 for a total of 24.
Priscilla came in with the second highest score in tonight's dance competition. Priscilla said, "This was by far the hardest thing I've ever done."
The first night of dancing for the six female contestants: Shannon Elizabeth, Marlee Matlin, Priscilla Presley, Monica Seles, Marissa Jaret Winokur and Kristi Yamaguch
