"Dancing With the Stars" (DWTS) season 28 kicked off last week with new celebrity pairings, voting system, and twists. Show hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews introduced new celebrity pairings who performed their first ballroom dance.

DWTS returned Monday for its second episode and season's first elimination. Before they revealed the first lay off, DWTS paid a tribute to departed contestants of DWTS Valerie Harper of Season 17 and Florence Henderson of Season 11.

Soon after, the show began with the new voting system in place. The new voting system allows the fans to vote live via calls and texts, the scores are then combined with judges' scores. Meanwhile, judges -- Len Goodman, Bruno Tunoli and Carrie Ann Inaba have the power to save one out of the bottom two couples while the other one gets eliminated for good.

Week 2 began with couples dancing one of the many unlearned dances introduced this week: Pasodoble, quickstep, rumba, samba and Viennese waltz.
