Bindi Irwin is going from Jungle Girl to dancing queen.
"We are gonna bust out with a kind of on-the-nose song the first week," her partner Derek Hough told PEOPLE of their Dancing with the Stars debut at the Television Academy Cocktail Reception for Outstanding Choreography at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, on Sunday.
"I'm in this space right now where I'm super pumped on life right now. I feel connected. I feel great. And then she walks in my life. You don't understand what positive energy she is," the pro added of late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin's daughter.

If dancing ever fails for Derek and Julianne Hough, the siblings already have their backup plans in place.
Instead of making a living as a professional dancer, "I'd be Indiana Jones," Derek quipped to PEOPLE at a dance class sponsored by Proactiv+ that the duo led in New York City. "That's not even a joke answer. That's a real answer. … I would be traveling the world finding relics."
Julianne also has a foolproof career ready to go, too – it just involves a bit of luck. Julianne proclaimed, "I would win the lottery so I could travel the world and do seminars with young girls about self-esteem and encouragement and empowerment."

In a preview of this week's Lip Sync Battle against sister Julianne, Derek Hough does his best Macklemore impression as he lip syncs along to "Can't Hold Us."
Although Hough, 29, does an impressive job of rapping along to every word of the fast-moving song, he doesn't show off too many of the dance moves that have earned him five mirror ball trophies on Dancing With the Stars, opting instead for moves of the "run, jump, pose" variety.

Dancing with the Stars contestant Nastia Liukin and partner Derek Hough no longer have a chance at the Mirrorball, but both of them agree it didn't come as too much of a surprise after Monday's episode.
"I feel like that when we finished the dance, it felt a little bit like a final dance, a final moment and a beautiful moment," Hough told PEOPLE backstage after the show. "So I think, for us, I'm not terribly surprised, but I'm very pleased. I can't believe what [Nastia's] accomplished."

After Monday night's impressive and emotional semifinal performances, would it be such a terrible idea to just hand out four Mirrorballs and call everyone a winner? I don't think so. But unlike kindergarten soccer, someone has to win, and someone has to lose in this glittery game.
On Tuesday, one of the couples who earned some of the season's highest scores from the judges was cut, which I'm sure created an uproar from many armchair dance "experts" watching. But, to be fair, this show is as much about the popular vote as it is about dance skill, and, like it or not, sometimes it's not all about the dance. Unjust? I'll let you debate it in the comments, but for now, let's discuss what happened and find out which couples are left to battle it out for the season 20 golden Mirrorball Trophy next week.
