"Dancing with the Stars" season 13 premiere event debuted Monday night with 12 new celebrities.

Carson Kressley, of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," was the clear crowd-favorite of the night (and quite possibly the season). Kressley's cha cha with Anna Trebrunskaya was comedically fun, filled with dramatic flair and glitter.

The top scorers -- from the judges -- of the night were J.R. Martinez, of "All My Children," singer/actress Chynna Phillips, and professional soccer player Hope Solo -- all scoring more than 20 points.

Here are the scores for the rest of the performers:

Ron Artest and Peta Murgatroyd = 14 points
Rob Kardashian and Cheryl Burke = 16 points
Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas = 19 points
Chynna Phillips and Tono Dovolani = 22 points
Nancy Grace and Tristan McMannus = 16 points
David Arquette and Kym Johnson = 18 points
Elisabetta Canalis and Val Chmerkovskiy = 15 points
Hope Solo and Maks Chermkovskiy = 21 points
Carson Kressley and Anna Trebunskaya = 17 points
J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff = 22 points
Ricki Lake and Derek Hough = 20 points
Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer = 17 points

Tuesday night marks the first elimination of the season. The star with the lowest judges and viewers' combined scores is sent home.
