Last season's Dancing with the Stars champions Jake Carter and Karen Byrne made a welcome return to the dancefloor in the first episode of the new series, and viewers were swooning around the country.
The pair treated audiences to a rendition of one of their best dances from last season - a contemporary number to Harry Styles' Sign of the Times.
The flawless performance reminded everyone just how talented they are.
Broadcaster Maia Dunphy said she got "chills all over again" watching the dance.
The action-packed first episode saw the boys strut their stuff for the first time, while Jennifer Zamparelli made her debut as the new host alongside Nicky Byrne.
Needless to say, she nailed it.
Viewers also had plenty of praise for the five contestants who took to the dancefloor - Darren Kennedy, Denis Bastick, Fred Cooke, Johnny Ward and Peter Stringer.
Judging by Twitter, there's a lot of early support for stand-up Fred Cooke...
I never watch - let alone vote - in these celebrity dancing shows. But tuned in to see my old pal @cookefred and he's still got the moves. And still an absolute gent. Vote Fred! #DWTSIRL pic.twitter.com/2zH1ORmT9T— Peter McGuire (@PeterMcGuireIE) January 6, 2019
