The premiere of Dancing with the Stars finally waltzed onto our screens last night bringing all the glitz, glam, and of course—ballroom dancing.

Going into the premiere, the Dancing with the Stars 2021 cast had already been revealed, including its first same-sex pairing. The question of who would be paired with which professional dancer still remained though. After the stars took to the dance floor, we officially have our dancing duos.

Who scored the lowest on Dancing with the Stars season 30 premiere?

The first night we watched as each celebrity made their dancing debut. Along with their professional partner, each contestant presented their first choreographed routine for the judges to critique and score. Not all pairs could get those top spots though. Karate Kid star Martin Kove and Britt Stewart landed a score of 13 out of 40 points, one of the lowest scores in Dancing with the Stars history.

On the other end though, Jojo Siwa and Jenna Johnson got the top score of 29. Everyone was safe this week, but starting next Monday, the first elimination of the season will occur.
