It was a HUGE night for ABC's season 11 premiere of Dancing With The Stars

The ballroom competition show brought in 20.99 million viewers, bringing it up 22 percent in the key 18-49 demographic from last fall's premiere episode.

Show highlights?  Judges fell in love with Jennifer Grey's Viennese Waltz.  "Something very profound just happened. Some things get better with age and I definitely think you're one of them," said Carrie Ann Inaba.

The judges also praised Cory In The House star, Kyle Massey for his explosive performance of the Cha Cha Cha on the dancefloor. Bruno Tolioni called the Disney star an 'adorable naughy puppy' after his energetic performance.  Watch his full performance above! 

Jersey Shore's, Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino, who only had five days of rehearsal time with partner Karina Smirnoff, didn't fare so well with the judges -- though they are optimistic he will improve with more practice!


So, which performance did you like best!?  Who do YOU think is going home this week!?
