'Dancing With the Stars' Season 20 Premiere Recap: So It Begins...

17 March 2015 4:33 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Hey Dance fans! The "landmark 20th season" and 10th year of "Dancing with the Stars" has begun, and it already looks like some fierce competition. Many strong and surprising dancers hide among the twelve new contestants, and the weak links are only moderately weak.

But who knows, she could be terrible. It's unlikely, but anything is possible.

Lots of the pairings seem the same as in past seasons though. Tony Dovolani is again placed with an older competitor, while Mark Ballas is with the young one; Derek is with the ringer again, and Val with the surprising unknown talent. Fortunately, Peta is again paired with someone »
