Charli D’Amelio and her partner Mark Ballas ruled the dance floor on Monday night’s (September 19) season 31 premiere of Dancing with the Stars!
The pair performed a Cha Cha to “Savage (Major Lazer Remix)” by Megan Thee Stallion for her debut on the dance competition.
“This is a dream come true for me,” Charli said after the routine.
Charli and Mark scored a 32 out of 40 points for their dance, receiving a score of eight from each of the four judges – this earned them the highest score of the night!
If you remember, JoJo Siwa, who has a similar dance background as Charli, also scored the highest on week 1 last season.
Sitting in the audience, showing his support was Charli‘s boyfriend Landon Barker, who sat with her sister Dixie, dad Marc and their friend Markell Washington!

Prior to the episode, Charli said that Landon is with her every step of the way.
“Landon knows that I’m doing this. He’s with me every step of the way throughout this journey. Travis [Barker] and Kourtney [Kardashian], I told them about it, and they were super excited as well,” she told Page Six last week. Fun fact: Kourtney‘s sister Kim Kardashian was also paired with Mark Ballas when she competed!
“I’m glad he’s gonna be there supporting me,” she added. “He’s excited for me. He’s always super sweet and excited whenever I’m excited about something.”
Also pictured: Charli‘s mom Heidi dancing with her partner Artem Chigventsev. They also did a Cha Cha, set to “Lady Marmalade.” Their score of the night was a 24/40.
