Dancing With the Stars 2013: Season 17, Week 1 Performance Photos

Dancing With the Stars 2013 kicked off with Season 17, Week 1 performances last night (September 16), and it was a night to remember.

With the show shifting from two nights per week down to a single two-hour episode, it flew by faster than usual. That could be due to the immense talent and high scores from this season’s contestants — Glee’s Amber Riley and four-time champ Derek Hough scored 27/30 and many others scored 23s and 24s.

If you missed any of the performances, you can watch them all here, and either way, we have some amazing photos from the ballroom last night! Click through to see all dozen pro pairs battle for the Mirror Ball, rockin’ quick footwork, spins, jumps, and much, much more!

Catch the next episode of Dancing With the Stars on Monday, Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
