'Dancing With the Stars': Patrick Swayze's widow weighs in on Jennifer Grey's first dance

Grey.jpgJennifer Grey waltzed her way to the highest score of the evening at the premiere of DWTS. She performed to "These Arms of Mine", a song she helped make famous with Patrick Swayze in "Dirty Dancing."

The premiere episode was watched by an impressive 17.7 million people, but there was one very special viewer that also caught the dance.

Patrick Swayze's widow Lisa Nieme, tuned in to support Jennifer and spoke with "Access Hollywood Live" about the actress' first dance.

Lisa told Access: "It can't help remind you -- remind me -- of how much I miss him, but when it came to the actual dance, I was with her. I thought that dancing to 'These Arms of Mine,' she did every bit as good a job as I thought she would and then some. Jennifer is a natural talent and she brought this kind of special sensuality. She's such a great actress... And then with 'These Arms of Mine' playing, it just added that
extra magic and I was just super thrilled."
