Michael Sam hit the dance floor Monday night and made a big impression in his Dancing With The Stars debut with his dancing partner, Peta Murgatroyd. They danced the cha cha to "Uptown Funk" and got the crowd on its feet with some big smiles and high energy. Their combined score of 26 placed them sixth (of 12) with the judges.

There was also a lot of commentary about Michael's butt, with Bruno Tonioli calling it "a work of art." People! The man is an elite-level defensive end. He's got glutes for days!

The crowd really got into the performance and gave ruckus cheers for Sam and Murgatroyd. The positive comments flowed across Twitter:
