Hines Ward's 'Dancing With The Stars' Debut (VIDEO)

Hines Ward made his "Dancing With The Stars" debut on Monday night and dominated the cha-cha with his partner Kym Johnson.

"I don't do touchdown dances because first off I can't really dance," he said before his routine.

When Johnson told the Pittsburgh Steelers receiver that she was once partners with Warren Sapp, Ward said he could do anything that the former defensive lineman can do.

"I want to show America with my cha-cha that I got the hips. I got the swivel. I got the swag," Ward said to the camera.
