The new season of "Dancing With The Stars" debuted last night and, big surprise, notorious hot mess Andy Dick has already had a tearful moment as he struggled to nail the moves. 

Dick, who has publically struggled with sobriety since appearing on "Celebrity Rehab," told ET that he "just hit a wall" and began to cry uncontrollably. 

"I was feeling like I wasn't getting the dance, and I just wasn't...I had to change my attitude and my concentration level. Because when I'd get frustrated, I'd just shut down entirely...This is better than rehab," the comedian explained. 

Dick wasn't the only funny guy to have a rough time -- D.L. Hughely also placed in the bottom of last night's show, with a performance called "disappointing."

Disney star Zendaya wowed the crowd with her moves, which isn't surprising; the 16-year-old is trained as a hip-hop dancer. She is also the youngest contestant to ever appear on the show.

You can relive all the dances at ABC.com.
