The "Dancing with the Stars" Season 16 premiere was a bittersweet one for judge Carrie Ann Inaba. Just a few days before the competition show began its season on ABC, Inaba lost her father, Rodney Y. Inaba.Carrie Ann wrote about her father in what was meant to be a "DWTS" style blog for People.com. Rodney Inaba passed away on Thursday (March 14), leaving his daughter with a tough decision about whether or not to participate in the first episode of the new season."I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make it through the show with all the emotions that have been overflowing," Inaba wrote on Wednesday (March 20). "But I felt my father's spirit was with me last night, supporting me and cheering me on."Despite her grief, Inaba did not give away that she was hurting throughout the show.

'Dancing with the Stars' Season 16: Who are the stars to beat?

Even with just one performance as evidence, it's sometimes possible to predict who might win "Dancing with the Stars." Nothing is certain, of course, but a few of the Season 16 contestants gave winning performances that might be tough to beat.Who were the winners and who were the losers on the first night of competition? We rank all 12 of the "DWTS" celebrities to see who might take that Mirror Ball trophy.#12 D.L. HughleyHe got a 12. That's pretty much the sign of certain doom on "Dancing with the Stars." Personality and fans may carry the comedian through to another week, but D.L. has virtually no chance at the top prize.#11 Andy DickAnyone who knows Andy Dick's career also knows about the man's unfortunate choices throughout the years. It's a bit off-putting. He gave a fun performance in week 1, but it wasn't great.

'Dancing With the Stars': Sean Lowe debuts with fiancee Catherine Giudici and his parents cheering

For their first dance on "Dancing With the Stars," "Bachelor" Sean Lowe and partner Peta Murgatroyd did a foxtrot to Huey Lewis' "Power of Love." Sean was definitely flashing his pearly whites and trying his best, but he was also pretty stiff at times. However, there is room to grow -- Sean wasn't completely devoid of talent or potential. We could see him getting better as the season goes on. The judges were nice, though not overly gushing. "I liked it. I didn't like it a lot, but I liked certain parts ... your posture was good, I liked your footwork. Your dancing needs to be more refined," says Len. Bruno calls it "hunky and chunky and very masculine," then compares it to a Chippendales version of a ballroom dance. Carrie Ann adds, "I liked it rough," which ... down, girl. But she liked his "fearless exuberance."Did you spot Sean's new fiancee Catherine Giudici... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/03/dancing-with-the-stars-sean-lowe-debuts-with-fiancee-catherine-giudici-and-his-parents-cheering.html

Dogs are loyal that way.Plus, gimmicks are always good for votes at the beginning of any "DWTS" season.According to TMZ.com, Giggy's participation in Lisa's dance with professional partner Gleb Savchenko depends on the Pomeranian avoiding poop mishaps and other dog-like behaviors on the ballroom floor. But if little Giggy does well, we may be seeing more... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/03/dancing-with-the-stars-lisa-vanderpumps-dog-giggy-will-dance-in-the-season-16-premiere.html
