On Monday’s season 29 premiere of “Dancing with the Stars” Vernon Davis took to the floor with professional dancer Peta Murgatroyd and stunned judges with his moves.


Vernon Davis, 36, and Peta Murgatroyd gave a powerful performance on “Dancing with the Stars (DWTS)” on September 14, 2020. The pair took on the Foxtrot dancing to John Legend’s “All of Me.”

The retired Washington tight end showed that he was good on the football field and on stage. His effort with Murgatroyd earned them a score of 17 out of 30.

Monday’s episode of DWTS aired without an audience for the first time in its history. The audience was left out due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus disease.

Last Wednesday, when the cast of celebrities and professional dancers met at a Los Angeles studio for rehearsal, certain safety measures were taken. Before they could even get out of their cars, all the cast members were tested for COVID-19.




Davis was seen sticking his head out of his SUV window to get a swab taken. According to “Daily Mail,” two healthcare professionals were seen at the venue in white laboratory coats, face masks, gloves, and face shields.

The medical professionals took samples from all the cast members. Each specimen was then placed into a bio-hazard bag before the professionals moved on to the next cast member.



On February 2, 2020, Davis announced his retirement in a hilarious spoof. Before the Super Bowl LIV, he joined with fellow retirees Rob Gronkowski, who’s since returned to the sport, and James Harrison to star in a “Golden Girls” spoof.



The former athlete spent 13 seasons in the NFL and featured on two Pro Bowls before setting his sights on DWTS. Hopefully, his athletic background will help him win the Mirrorball trophy.


Murgatroyd, a Latin dancer and actress, was born in Auckland, New Zealand before her parents moved to Perth, Australia when she was young. In Australia, she studied classical ballet as a preschooler but injured her ankle when she was 16 and had to switch to Latin dance.
