Kicking off the “Dancing with the Stars” season 25 premiere are Terrell Owens and returning pro Cheryl Burke, dancing a cha cha to “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” by The Temptations.
Len Goodman says the couple got the party started and really entertained him. “It was full of fun, it was full of energy,” he adds. But he warns Owens to watch his feet and to dance fully. They score a 15 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.
