Dancing With The Stars 2010: Watch Buzz Aldrin moonwalk the cha cha cha with Ashly Costa (VIDEO)
Former moonwalker Buzz Aldrin made his Dancing With The Stars debut last night and watching him, it is hard to believe that he is 80 years old.
Though his moves were stiff at times (his hips probably were too!), the one time astronaut got a standing ovation from the audience and displayed such charm, charisma and personality that we think he’ll be a real favourite with the voting public this season.
Len Goodman: “I remember sitting at home in England watching you walking on the moon and being amazed, not just by the technology but the braveness of you guys for going up there the first time and again I’ve got to commend you for your bravery in coming out tonight. However I can’t give marks for bravery, just for dancing and it wasn’t too good tonight”
Bruno Tonioli: “How can I possibly criticise a hero and a legend? But I have to do my job. It looked like you had your moon boots on. Let’s say it’s going to get better next week.”
Carrie Ann: “Was that a little moonwalk I saw? What’s great about this show is it inspires people at home to get out and do things they might be afraid of. You inspired a ton of people tonight.”
