Who Won Over the Judges on Last Night’s Premiere of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars?

Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars premiered to high expectations last night, but only a few of the couples wowed the judges.

Emmitt Smith and his pro partner Cheryl Burke won the highest accolades of the night, followed by Gilles Marini and his pro partner Peta Murgatroyd.

Less impressive were Pamela Anderson and Tristan MacManus, who received the lowest scores of the night, followed by Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Speaking of judging, new score boards allowed judges to give half point increment scores, like a 7.5 instead of a 7 or 8 to the contestants.

A lot of celebrities and famous names could also be found off the dance floor and in the audience. Sarah Palin was there to support her daughter Bristol Palin, and Nick Lachey (who just had a baby boy with his wife Vanessa) was on hand to lend support to brother Drew Lachey.

Here’s how the dancers fared highest to lowest scores. Be sure to vote for who you think will bring home the mirror ball trophy this season below!
