Season 17 of Dancing With the Stars kicked off Monday, September 16th on ABC. It's an interesting cast of stars this year, with some almost professional dancers and some, well, that almost look like they have two left feet. All in all, it was the best first night in the 17 seasons!

One of those competing is Bill Nye - the Science Guy! Bill was great in swing dancing when he met his partner, but when he danced the cha cha to "Blinded Me With Science", well, you can see for yourself.

I think Bill Nye will be sticking around though, as he seems to be certainly a fan favorite!

Amber Riley who portrays Mercedes on Glee, received 27 out of 30 for her performance, and it deserved that high score

Valerie Harper who played Rhoda in her own show, and on Mary Tyler Moore has to be the sentimental favorite as she's 73 and has terminal cancer. She was great!

Probably the surprise of the night was Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, who's known for being in the Jersey Shore on MTV! She did very well
