Dancing With The Stars: Juniors launched on ABC Sunday night, with 12 celebrity children dancing for their own Mirrorball Trophy with the help of junior ballroom dancers. Two dancers were eliminated, including Sarah Palin's grandson Tripp.
The other contestant who did not make it through was Addison Osta Smith, a MasterChef Junior winner.
The new show is hosted by DWTS veterans Jordan Fisher and Frankie Muniz, with choreographer Mandy Moore, pro dancer Val Chmerkovskiy and previous DWTS champ Frankie Muniz as judges. Each team is also mentored by a professional dancer as well. At the end of every episode, two dancing couples are sent home, based on an audience vote and judges' scores.
