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:

Candace Cameron Bure kicked off her career at age 10, starring on the popular series Full House. Since the show wrapped in '95, the actress got married, had three kids and wrote two books. She's been paired with two-time mirror ball-winning champ Mark Ballas for season 18 of Dancing with the Stars and she'll be sharing her experience with PEOPLE readers.
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.

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.

I'm hurting a lot today. I still have energy, but I'm just incredibly sore and beat up. It is what I expected, but the contemporary dance, which is what we're starting with, has proven to physically be beyond what I had expected.
We're literally rolling on the floor for some of this dance. I've done races and mud runs and I've crawled up hills under barbed wire, and I've never had bruises bigger than the bruises I have now from doing this dance.

One way to keep the drowsiness at bay on Thanksgiving? Just keep dancing!
A hilarious impromptu dance war erupted Thursday on Instagram among several Dancing with the Stars veterans, beginning with a throwdown between Derek Hough and his season 14 partner, Maria Menounos.
Early in the day, Hough, 28, posted a video of himself and his family, including sister Julianne, boogying down to will.i.am's "That Power" while preparing dinner. "The key to a great meal?? Dance while you cook!" he wrote.

Two emotions came to mind for Christina Milian following her surprising elimination on Monday night's Dancing with the Stars.
"I'm sad ? I'm shocked," she told PEOPLE backstage. "After our performance tonight [and] getting those scores, I thought, hey, even if we are in the bottom, our score can help us stay in the game. But I guess based on votes from last week, you know, [we] just didn't make the cut ? Even the audience was like, 'huh?' It was quite a reaction ? I wasn't expecting [to be eliminated], but it's okay."
Fighting back tears, Milian, 32, who scored the first 10 of the season with partner Mark Ballas, reflected fondly on her experience on the ABC show.
