Actress Jennifer Grey, better known as “Baby” from Dirty Dancing received a standing ovation after her first dance on last night’s season opener of Dancing with the Stars.

LOS ANGELES - SEP 20: Jennifer Grey & Derek Hough at the Season 11 Premiere of Dancing with the Stars at CBS Television CIty on September 20, 2010 in Los Angeles, CA Photo via NewscomPaired with last year’s champion, Derek Hough, Grey danced to a song from Dirty Dancing, entitled, These Arms of Mine. Grey struggled through rehearsals, thinking about the late Patrick Swayze; her last Dancing partner.

Grey and Hough danced the Viennese Waltz and connected to each other and to the music beautifully. They scored a 24/30, the highest of the night, getting eights from all three judges.

Grey’s dancing seemed to bring everyone back to the Dirty Dancing days, and with her standing ovation came tears from many, including judge Carrie Ann Inaba. She told Grey, “somethings get better with age, and I think you’re one of them.”

Grey is a front runner in this season’s competition, and last night proved that. She will definitely be moving on to next week!
