Tonya Hardings First Performance on DWTS

On Monday night's premiere of the special all-athletes season of DWTS, it quickly became clear that figure skaters Adam Rippon and Mirai Nagasu will be the ones to beat. Rippon performed a fierce cha-cha set to RuPaul's song "Sissy That Walk" and boasted of the connection he shared with pro partner Jenna Johnson, "I'm not a scientist, but we've got chemistry." Meanwhile, Nagasu stunned with a fiery salsa set to Meghan Trainor's "No Excuses." Fellow figure skater Tonya Harding performed a solid routine, but was outshone by a celebrity who was in the audience to cheer her: Allison Janney, who won an Oscar for portraying Harding's mom in the recent biopic I, Tonya. The episode also featured the first-ever premiere night elimination, which saw retired baseball player Johnny Damon and snowboarder Jamie Anderson being sent home.
