Sasha Pieterse and Gleb Savchenko dance next, performing a cha cha to “Like That” by Fleur East.
Carrie Ann Inaba says Pieterse looked very fierce and commends both her sexiness and technique. She warns her, however, to not get ahead of the music. They score an 18 out of 30.

Welcome to the shining silver season of “Dancing with the Stars”! On Monday night, ABC’s hit reality competition officially returns for its 25th season and the 13 couples are bringing the fierceness to the dance floor. The dances featured on tonight’s two-hour-long premiere episode include the salsa, foxtrot, tango and cha cha. Audiences will get their first look at the stars and will also catch a glimpse of a few familiar faces, including two returning, fan-favorite pros. Two couples will be sent home next week as part of a double elimination—one on Monday night and the other on Tuesday during a live results show.

According to ABC, Pieterse is an actress who “is best known for her lead role on Freeform’s ‘Pretty Little Liars,’ which wrapped its seventh and final season earlier this year. Despite being only 12 years old when she landed the role on what would go on to become one of the network’s most popular and successful shows, she held her own as the youngest regular cast member with already years of professional experience beneath her belt.” She has also starred in television series and films, along with modeling and singing.
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.
