The performer of I'm Yours knows his moves.

We are now in the second week of the new 32nd season of Dancing with the Stars. That is the first season of the show to have been broadcast on both Disney+ and ABC, attracting a large number of both old and new fans. The high-energy level complements the star-studded cast, as Season 32 features personalities like Alyson Hannigan, Charity Lawson, and more.

The list of competitors include another big name in American pop culture. Famed singer-songwriter Jason Mraz is participating, paired with Season 30 winner Daniella Karagach. Judging by the scores the pair has received in the two episodes released so far, they stand a good chance of coming out on top.

Week 1 Score

The first week of Season 32 proved to be as dynamic as it was intense. Many of the contestants didn't meet the high expectations and got very low scores. That was the case for Too Hot to Handle contestant Harry Jowsey and dancer Rylee Arnold, as well as How I Met Your Mother/Buffy the Vampire Slayer alumna Alyson Hannigan and her partner Sasha Farber.

In contrast, Jason and Daniella delivered a top-notch performance and got a high score early on. Dancing a cha-cha-cha to Mraz's I Feel Like Dancing, the pair earned a total of 21 points, only trailing behind Charity Lawson and Artem Chigvintsev.

Week 2 Score

In the second week, the pair impressed the judges and viewers even more when they performed a Rumba to Quizás, Quizás, Quizás by Andrea Bocelli and Jennifer Lopez. This dance is traditionally one of the most challenging on the show for male celebrities, but Jason absolutely aced it, showcasing his talent and moves. Daniella, meanwhile, demonstrated what a great teacher she is.

In the end, the pair rightfully earned 24 points, tying with Xochitl Gomez and Val Chmerkovskiy for the top spot that week. Lawson, however, partnered with another dancer, Ezra Sosa, in this episode and only scored 21 points.

What are the odds?

But will the pair be able to not only perform well in the future but also come out on top? Aside from the judges' scores, it all depends on the viewers' votes, which will determine who stays in the show and who doesn't.

And from the looks of it, Mraz and Karagach are indeed universally adored. According to GoldDerby's calculations, their odds of winning are 4/1, making them the second most likely to win, behind Lawson and Chigvintsev (37/10). The only problem is that if the latter pair consistently scores higher, Mraz and Karagach will get eliminated.

The next episode will air on ABC and Disney+ on October 10th.
