LOS ANGELES, Calif. (WKOW) -- Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver hit the big stage Monday.
He lit up the premiere of "Dancing with the Stars".
Driver and his partner Peta Murgatroyd danced the Cha Cha, which earned them a standing ovation from the crowd.
The judges were a bit tougher on the couple, giving them 21 out of 30 points.
After the dance, Driver said he's been studying the moves for a while.
"I've been watching the show since season one so I've been watching these guys, Max and Derek, for a long time. So now I get an opportunity to just copycat."
Next week, Driver will take on the quick step.
A betting website picked Driver as one of three contestants with the best chance to win this season.
