ABC has revealed the dance styles and songs for the first routines as well as more details on how the voting will work. For the premiere, viewers will be able to vote online at ABC.com during the episode, starting at 8pm ET and ending shortly after the final couple performs their routine. Then those live viewer votes will be combined with the judges’ scores and at least two couples will go home.

ABC’s press release didn’t specify how many couples will gone, simply that there will be “eliminations.” In addition, regular voting will open after the show that will factor into the second episode’s eliminations.

As for the dances, the first night will give us three Cha-Cha-Chas, three Foxtrots, three Salsas and a Viennese Waltz for Jamie Anderson and Artem Chigvintsev. Jamie’s routine may be especially emotionally since they will dance to a song by Avicii, who died suddenly last week.

Most of the other songs seem to fit the stars’ personalities, whether it’s Kareem and Stevie Wonder, Johnny Damon with a classic song about baseball or Adam Rippon taking on RuPaul.

Here is the complete list of first dances for the 10 couples on Dancing with the Stars: Athletes.
