Billy Dee Williams and R2-D2 Steal the Dancing With the Stars Season Premiere

Hope you enjoy your Emmy, genius who choreographed Billy Dee Williams' cha cha on tonight's DWTS season premiere. The Empire Strikes Back star blew everyone else out of the water with a little help from R2-D2, two ewoks and Leia-fied dance partner Emma Slater, all of whom did a great job of distracting us from the fact Mr. Williams technically cannot dance. It doesn't matter. With production values like these, a failure to vote Billy Dee into the top three would be a betrayal of the ideals on which American reality competition shows are built. At least keep him on until Darth Vader has a chance to mambo. Please.
