Dancing with the Stars, DWTS Cast

ABC/Todd Wawrychuk

Dancing With the Stars Season 18 is already off to a surprising start!

The ballroom was shocked when (Spoiler Alert!) Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams announced he was leaving the competition due to chronic back pain at the beginning of Monday night's episode. And yes, that meant the nine other celebrities were free to perform their latest routines without worrying about being eliminated by the end of the night. Phew!

Still, the competition raged on and Good Morning America co-anchor Robin Roberts acted as the ABC reality hit's guest judge during  the two-hour outing, which found Olympic ice dancer Meryl Davis (partnered with Maksim Chmerkovskiy) scoring the first 10 of the season. In fact, she landed  three of them, with just Len Goodman keeping her from a perfect score. (How rude!)

As for all of week 3's scores? (Note: Because there were four judges, the celebs could notch up to 40 points.)

NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani: 31
Cody Simpson and Witney Carson: 35
James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd: 36
Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke: 30
