I can't believe Carrie Ann Inaba gave me a 9 on my first dance! Mark and I were ecstatic!

I guess the lights, the camera and the thrill of performing live gave me an extra boost that even Mark was surprised to see. I really did give it my all that night and was happy with my overall performance.

At the end of Monday's episode, Engvall and partner Emma Slater ended up with the lowest score – and were sent packing.

Karina Smirnoff's DWTS Blog: No Food, No Sleep – Just Practice

Karina Smirnoff is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 13 with J.R. Martinez. The longtime competitor has been blogging for PEOPLE about competing with former High School Musical star Corbin Bleu in season 17.

I'm just enjoying this whole process. At this point, you can't control what's going to happen from anyone's side. The only thing we know is that we're having a blast and we're trying to figure out how to fit in all these dances. The workload this season is ridiculous. We've had to pretty much learn more than one dance per day.

We get nervous about the quality. How do you manage to work, polish and give great quality with such little time? So it's like you don't eat, you don't sleep, you don't use the bathroom. They say sleep is overrated. I respectfully disagree.

Cher Heading to DWTS: I'm Singing, Not Dancing

Originally posted 10/28/2013 08:15PM

No one was more stunned than Cher when she recently found out Dancing with the Stars will pay tribute to her decades-long music career on the Nov. 4 show.

"It's always strange when people do something like this. You're not thinking about those kinds of things," she tells PEOPLE. "It just always takes me by surprise. It just does."

Cher will sing her hit "Believe" and her new song "Closer To The Truth" on the show, as well as serve as a guest judge, but won't be dancing because of a foot injury she sustained years ago. "I am waiting to have an operation," she says. "The doctor got a little crankier and said I have to do it."

Even if she could dance today, you won't find Cher dancing on DWTS as a contestant. "Aren't I old enough now not to be a contestant anymore?" the singer, 67, says. "Haven't I got past the contestant part?"

Hello, dancers!

Get ready for another crazy Monday night of Dancing with the Stars!! I've been practicing all week here in L.A., and this is my favorite dance I've learned so far!

Even though it is breaking my heart that I'm away from my son and family, my body feels so much better training in one spot instead of flying back and forth everywhere.

Get ready to rumba!

With season 16 of Dancing With the Stars just weeks away, 11 new cast members – including former Olympic champs Dorothy Hamill and Aly Raisman, as well as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump – were announced on Good Morning America Tuesday. There may also be a country music rivalry in the ballroom: two singers, Wynonna Judd and Kellie Pickler, will dance this season. Check out the full list of competitors below.

The pro pairings were also announced on the live telecast – and there are a few familiar faces missing from the list. Outspoken pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy will not be on this season; neither will Anna Trebunskaya, Chelsie Hightower or Louis Van Amstel. However, viewers will get to see new pros Gleb Savchenko, Lindsay Arnold and former dance troupe member Sharna Burgess in action when the season premieres March 18 on ABC.

Here's a full list of the season 16 pairs announced Tuesday:
