'DWTS' Season 16 Premiere Leaderboard Recap


The season 16 premiere of 'DWTS' on ABC kicked off last night with Tom Bergeron and Brooke Burke Charvet back as co-hosts.

A dozen celebrities and their pro partners got their first opportunity to strut their stuff last night and suffice it to say some demonstrated dance prowess and others ... not so much.

Landing at the bottom of the leaderboard after a Cha-Cha-Cha to 'Low' by Flo Rida was stand-up comic D.L. Hughley and his pro partner Cheryl Burke.  Their combined score was 12.

Wowing the judges with their Contemporary dance to 'Feel Again' by One Republic were Zendaya Coleman and pro Val Chmerkovskiy.  The judges awarded the 16-year-old Disney star with the highest score of the evening ... a trio of 8's.

There will be no elimination this week.  Monday's scores will be added to next week's numbers and someone will earn the dubious distinction of becoming the first eliminated player of season 16 during the March 26th elimination show.
