It’s the 25th season of Dancing With the Stars and the cast has us on the edge of our seats.

Unlike last season’s opener, this year’s was taped. The production featured all of the stars showing off their beginner dance moves.

Let’s just say some were more impressive than others.

This year, pro dancer and judge Julianne Hough didn’t return to the judge’s table. Instead of four judges, the original 3 judges are back in their seats.

Terrell Owens & Cheryl Burke

Disney ABC

ABC/Craig Sjodin

“Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” by The Temptations
Cha Cha
#TeamGetchaPopcorn

Len thought Terrell was just as entertaining on the dance floor as he was on the football field. That being said, Terrell needs to watch his footing. For a football player, it shouldn’t be that difficult.

Debbie Gibson & Alan Bersten

ALAN BERSTEN, DEBBIE GIBSON

ABC/Craig Sjodin

“Lost in Your Eyes” by Debbie Gibson
Foxtrot
#TeamSonBerst

Bruno thinks this partnership is a winning one. He can’t wait to see them grow together. Bruno noted Debbie’s shoulders need to relax a bit more. She attributes this to her Lyme disease, which she was diagnosed with last year. For Debbie, this is a personal journey to overcome her diagnosis.

Sasha Pieterse & Gleb Savchenko

SASHA PIETERSE, GLEB SAVCHENKO

ABC/Craig Sjodin

“Like That” by Fleur East
Cha Cha
#TeamATeam

Carrie Ann had one thing to say to Sasha before she began her critique, “you’re fierce!” Carrie Ann thought Sasha was sexy and had great rhythm. There was a point where Sasha got a little ahead of the music, but no major slip ups!

Drew Scott & Emma Slater

DREW SCOTT, EMMA SLATER

ABC/Craig Sjodin

“Our House” by Madness
Foxtrot
#TeamHotProperty

Well, Len didn’t have enough time to critique Drew. His hands, feet, arms, head, rhythm, and everything in between. Drew attributes his missteps to getting his hand stuck in Emma’s hair.

Barbara Corcoran & Keo Motsepe

KEO MOTSEPE, BARBARA CORCORAN

ABC/Craig Sjodin

“Money Maker” by Ludacris feat. Pharrell
Salsa
#TeamSharkeo

Barbara was looking fit last night. Barbara might have gotten a bit distracted by Keo’s good looks. As Bruno put it, Barbara is gonna have to do more than shake her money maker to win this challenge.

Jordan Fisher & Lindsay Arnold

LINDSAY ARNOLD, JORDAN FISHER

ABC/Craig Sjodin

“There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” by Shawn Mendes

#TeamFishUponAStar

These partners became quick friends. Carrie Ann loves the way Jordan led Lindsay through the dance and took control of moves. Not only did he get the routine right, but he was able to add his own “swagger” in between the rehearsed moves.

FRANKIE MUNIZ, WITNEY CARSON

ABC/Craig Sjodin

“Sign of the Times” by Harry Styles

Nikki Bella & Artem Chigvintsev

NIKKI BELLA, ARTEM CHIGVINTSEV

ABC/Craig Sjodin

“So What!” By P!nk
Tango
#TeamSmackdown

Len told Nikki she needs to stop looking down. She told Len it’s simply a bad habit! Well, it’s one she will need to learn to break, without breaking Artem’s back.

Derek Fisher & Sharna Burgess

DEREK FISHER, SHARNA BURGESS

ABC/Craig Sjodin

“Basketball” by Kurtis Blow

Victoria Arlen & Val Chmerkovsky

VICTORIA ARLEN, VALENTIN CHMERKOVSKIY

#TeamViVa

“She’s the closet thing to a miracle,” Val said of his partner, Victoria. Carrie Ann said it was one of he most joyous dances she’s ever seen. Victoria cannot feel her legs, so she completely trusts Val. It was one of the best performances of the night and Victoria is one to watch!

Lindsey Stirling & Mark Ballas

LINDSEY STIRLING, MARK BALLAS

ABC/Craig Sjodin

“Don’t Worry” by Madcon
Cha Cha
#TeamSTARK

Lindsey sure knows how to work a crowd, and her body. She had all the right moves, and all of the charm. Len expected her to be good, but she didn’t expect her to be great. He called it the dance of the night!
