Boogeying in public before the Dancing with the Stars season premiere is usually strictly forbidden for new contestants, but Hills hottie Audrina Patridge and partner Tony Dovolani gave fans a sneak peek of their moves on Tuesday’s Lopez Tonight.

Though Audrina said she was “really nervous” and had “never performed in front of a live audience before” – the reality TV bikini-lover wasn’t bad! Lopez even bet $500 on Audrina, who said she’s working hard in the dance studio.

“I’m actually the perfectionist,” she said. “I want to keep doing it until I get it. [Tony] tells me to do less, take it down a notch.”

Tony said Audrina is a step up from his past partner, Kate Gosselin, with whom he clashed. Asked if he liked Audrina better, Tony told George: “They really shouldn’t even be in the same question!”
