Closing out the season 25 premiere are Lindsey Stirling and returning pro Mark Ballas, dancing a cha cha to “Don’t Worry” by Madcon.
Len Goodman says that the dance was very crisp and clean. He adds that it was “the dance of the night.” They score a 22 out of 30, tying with Jordan Fisher for the top spot of the night.

According to ABC, Stirling “is one of the biggest artist development breakthrough stories in recent years. An acclaimed violinist from Gilbert, AZ., she entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, using her classical violin training, to leap through the music industry with almost 10 million YouTube subscribers, over 1.9 billion views on her YouTube channel, two Billboard Music Awards, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide. She’s created a new music world where modern classical meets the infectious energy of dance and electronica.”
The star-studded lineup for the 25th season of “Dancing with the Stars” includes former NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens, Hamilton’s Jordan Fisher, “Shark Tank” investor Barbara Corcoran, “Pretty Little Liars” star Sasha Pieterse and “Property Brothers” co-host Drew Scott. Other stars include Victoria Arlen, Nikki Bella and Nick Lachey. Fan-favorite pros Mark Ballas and Cheryl Burke also return to the dance floor this season, along with hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews.
The judging panel features Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. Their scores, along with America’s votes, determine which couples will go home and which ones will advance to compete for the coveted Mirrorball trophy.
“Dancing with the Stars” airs every Monday night at 8 p.m. on ABC.
