It wasn't the farewell Billy Dee Williams originally anticipated, but when the Star Wars icon bid adieu to Dancing with the Stars on Monday night because of injury, he held his head high.

Monday night's Dancing with the Stars kicked off with a selection of surprises.
Not only did contestants learn right at the beginning that there was a double elimination to take place during the show, but the leader board's lowest scorer Billy Dee Williams – whose face expressed fear of being sent home – was saved almost immediately, and went on to dance a 15-point tango with Emma Slater that judge Len Goodman said "didn't have enough attack."
Before getting to the unfortunate two who were forced to bid adieu, here's a recap of how the night went overall:

Another season of Dancing with the Stars kicked off on Monday night, with no shortage of fancy footwork to hit the ballroom.
Although the night consisted of many highs from a number of talented contestants, it was Olympic gold medalist ice skating partners-turned-DWTS-competitors Meryl Davis and Charlie White, who gained most of the buzz leading up to the show's 18th season.

From former child stars to young musicians, the 18th season of Dancing with the Stars is filled with an eclectic mix of competitors. But the most interesting may be the casting of Meryl Davis and Charlie White.
Davis, 27, and White, 26, ruled the rink at last month's Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, winning the gold medal in ice dancing. Now they'll battle in the ballroom – but against each other for the mirror ball trophy. White will dance with Sharna Burgess, while Davis will shimmy with Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Valentin's brother, who is back after taking last season off.
The 12 new contestants on ABC's hit show were announced Tuesday morning on Good Morning America.
