Dancing With the Stars is back!
Season 24 of the hit reality competition kicked off on ABC last evening — and we loved seeing Simone Biles, Nancy Kerrigan, and more of the celebs’ awesome first dances!

Simone Biles and Sasha Farber go for the gold
Hello, frontrunners! Simone, 18, and Sasha received a 32/40 for their first dance — the highest score of the night! After performing a nearly-perfect tango, judge Len Goodman deemed their dance the best of the show.

Rashad Jennings and Emma Slater wow the judges
The 31-year-old NFL star totally surprised the crowd with his fun Cha Cha to Bruno Mars‘ “24K Magic.” Rashad and Emma earned a 31/40 for their energetic dance, which judge Julianne Hough exclaimed was the “best dance of the night!”
Chris Kattan overcomes injury with partner Witney Carson
Unfortunately, Chris, 46, received the lowest score of the evening — a mere 17/40 — and some harsh criticism from the judges for his Night at the Roxbury-themed Cha Cha with partner Witney. But, we learned the SNL star recently broke his neck, so frankly any dancing he does is super impressive!
Charo and Keo Motsepe bring the heat with a sexy salsa
The 66-year-old flamenco star did not disappoint! After performing her high-energy salsa, Charo received praise from the judges for her stage presence and over-the-top personality — but was also told to work on her content. With a score of 21/40, Charo’s first dance wasn’t too shabby!
Bonner Bolton and Sharna Burgess show off their amazing chemistry
Ok, Bonner and Sharna performed a pretty solid Cha Cha — but it was their undeniable affection for each other that really stole the show! With a score of 22/40, the professional bull rider, 29, definitely needs to work on his moves a bit, but overall his first dance with Sharna was awesome.
