Dancing with the Stars Season Premiere Recap: Men Take the Floor

at . Comments

The three-night extravaganza that is the season nine premiere of Dancing with the Stars got underway last night.

Ignoring good manners, the men went before the women, as eight hopeful D-listers took to the stage and performed Latin and Ballroom routines.

To the dismay of Democrats, Tom DeLay didn't make a total fool of himself; although Cowboys fans that are distraught over the team's loss this week weren't comforted by Michael Irvin's moves. Here's a rundown of the opening evening's scores:

  • Aaron Carter & Karina Smirnoff (below): 32
  • Donny Osmond & Kym Johnson: 30
  • Mark Dacascos & Lacey Schwimmer: 29
  • Louie Vito & Chelsie Hightower: 27
  • Chuck Liddell & Anna Trebunskaya : 22
  • Tom DeLay & Cheryl Burke: 20
  • Ashley Hamilton & Edyta Sliwinska: 19
  • Michael Irvin & Anna Demidova: 19
