Right from Simpson’s introduction, Hadid was thrust into the spotlight.

Following Simpsons cha-cha with Carson, Hadid was captured on screen on her feet to give her boyfriend a standing ovation. Although the 17-year-old singer only received 22 points from the judges, Hadid was clearly impressed. New host Erin Andrews asked Simpson after he received his scores, “How was it dancing in front of your girlfriend with these distracting hips?” While Simpson chuckled into the mic, Hadid smiled like a trooper from her seat.
So, how does Hadid actually feel about Simpson’s dancing debut? The singer recently opened up about his girlfriend’s feelings, saying, "Has she teased me? Not necessarily," adding to People, "She's like, 'Don't move your hips too much in front of [Witney].' "
"It's great,” he said. “It's in good fun."
Hadid took to Twitter after the show to joke about Simpson and Carson’s routine to Pitbull and Kesha’s “Timber.”
