Sixteen couples started out round one on the new season of "Dancing with the Stars" on Disney+. Sadly, one duo was sent home at the end of the show.

LOS ANGELES -- The 31st season of "Dancing with the Stars" waltzed onto Disney+ Monday night. The good news for dance fans: two full hours of entertainment because there are no commercials.

Sixteen couples started out round one, but one was sent home at the end of the evening.

Joining to help Tyra Banks co-host is past "DWTS" champ Alfonso Ribeiro. The extra time allows for a little more chatting with the judges, and a little more banter with Ribeiro and the competitors after they perform.

There was a three-way tie for the third place slot, shared by actress Selma Blair, reality star Gabby Windey and drag performer Shangela.

Bringing up the end of the list: actor Jason Lewis in 15th and reality star Vinny Guadagnino in 16th.

The final result is a combination of viewer votes and judges' scores. In the end, it was Lewis and his partner Peta Murgatroyd who had to pack up their dance shoes.
