Watch Calvin Johnson's 'Dancing With The Stars' Debut

By Dan Jenkins

A very happy-looking Calvin Johnson made his debut on Dancing With The Stars on Monday night.

The former Detroit Lions wide receiver performed the Cha Cha with his professional partner Lindsay Arnold. The two donned Honolulu Blue and White outfits with the number 81 on the back.

The pair even danced on the floor that was made to look like a football field -- yard lines, Lions logo and all.

During the judges critique Bruno Tonioli even went as far as to call Calvin "Cha Cha Tron," instead of his customary "Megatron."

The nine-year wide receiver announced his retirement from the NFL earlier this summer after months of speculation about his future in the league. He holds the NFL record for most receiving yards in a single season.
