Chaz Bono Performs For First Time on 'Dancing with the Stars'

J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff (photosKarina Smirnoff photos) tied with Chynna Phillips & Tony Dovolani for the lead after their first performances in front of the judges on Monday night but all eyes were on Chaz Bono and Lacey Schwimmer.

And 'Dancing with the Stars' first ever transgender contestant didn't disappoint judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli.

"Chazzy Boy, you can dance!," said Inaba. Len Goodman nicknamed him "Razzamataz Chaz" and praised his footwork while Bruno Tonioli said he was "so cuddly and cute."

"Great, great debut, Chaz," added Bruno. "You should be proud."

Bono and partner Lacey Schwimmer finished with 17 points.

"I've gotten so much support and I really wanted to do a good job for the people supporting me," Bono told co-host Brooke Burke (photosBrooke Burke photos). "Physically it's pretty challenging, but it's fun, and I'm really having the time of my life."

The show's first elimination episode airs on Tuesday night.
