Sadie Robertson may very well be the sweetheart on season 19 of Dancing With the Stars, but sources say she’s also a force to be reckoned with on the dance floor, too. The Duck Dynasty star impressed fans and judges, too, during her first week of competition with her dance pro partner Mark Ballas.
Christian Today reports that all the judges sang Sadie Robertson’s praises following her performances during the opening week. Sadie was most excited to be critiqued by Julianne Hough–a two-time mirrorball trophy winner, professional dancer, and judge for season 19.
“Oh my gosh, it was huge,” Sadie said. “It was so much fun. I really let loose and had fun with it. I loved it.”
Sadie Robertson scored two 8s and two 9s from the panel of four judges that included–in addition to Julianne Hough–Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Carrie Ann Inaba.

Mark Ballas had plenty of positive things to say about Sadie Robertson, too.
“Not to mention, I was very impressed with Sadie who just pulled it out of the bag. She hit this “on” switch that I hadn’t seen in rehearsals yet. It blew me away! She was so cute, and her face lit up the whole room. She had a lot of rhythm, which is amazing for someone with no dance experience. She’s naturally gifted — she’s got it!” he wrote on his blog.
Sadie is very clearly looking forward to week two of Dancing With the Stars competition. She posted an Instagram photo that she captioned, “WE ARE SO EXCITED ABOUT MY JAM MONDAY who is pumped to see what #thequackpack has chosen ?!? @markballas @dancingabc”
Did you see Sadie Robertson’s performance last week on Dancing With the Stars? It’s easy to see how her humble, modest ways could easily make her this season’s sweetheart. Do you think she has the dancing prowess to take her throughout the entire season or do you expect she might be among those who peter out early in the game and head home soon?
