On Monday's 25th season premiere of DWTS, violinist Lindsey Stirling earned the highest score and established herself as the early frontrunner.
The 30-year-old musician performed a cha-cha that hard-to-please judge Len Goodman called his favorite dance of the night.
Meanwhile, Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz danced earnestly to Harry Styles' "Sign of the Times" and professed his love for DWTS.
On the other end of the spectrum was Nick Lachey, who previously declared that he'd "never" compete on DWTS. ABC was, of course, quick to play the footage now that he's come crawling to their stage. And his dancing suggested that he perhaps should've stayed true to his word.
To make matters worse for Lachey, his wife Vanessa proved to be a much better dancer and scored higher than him by three points.
