"Extra" takes a look at the action behind Monday's season 14 premiere of "Dancing with the Stars," featuring our own Maria Menounos as one of the contestants. "DWTS" host Tom Bergeron believes Menounos could be a fierce competitor, saying, "Apart from that really strange laugh, she seems to be doing well!"

"Empress of Soul" Gladys Knight is also gearing up for her giant "Dancing" debut, and told "Extra's" Terri Seymour she's feeling pretty sore from the training, but revealed her remedy. "I've never been so cold in my life because of all the ice I have to use!"

When asked how her muscles were doing, Knight replied, "You really want to know?"

Knight, who is partnered with "Dancing" pro Tristan MacManus, said "I trust Tristan, so whatever you all want me to do, just make me look good!"

"Dancing with the Stars" debuts Monday at 8PM on ABC!
