Thirteen celebrities are competing for the "Dancing with the Stars" season 25 Mirrorball trophy? Who will make it to the finals and which couple will take home the coveted trophy this season?

The "DWTS" two-hour premiere begins at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, September 18. It's too soon to tell who will make it far in the competition and who will leave during the first round of eliminations. However, there are plenty of predictions as to which couple will be crowned the winner of the 25th season of ABC's popular ballroom dance competition.

Which couple has the best shot at winning?

This season's cast lineup is a good one. There's the usual mix of athletes, music artists, TV stars. Oh, and there's at least one contestant with professional dance experience — Mark Ballas' partner, Lindsey Stirling. She's a professional violinist and dancer. So, fans can expect her to have great musicality on the dance floor along with killer dance moves.

If you are playing along with the "Dancing with the Stars" Fantasy League game, Lindsey may be a good pick. Her name may not be as well known as the other contestants, but there's no doubt she will be a top contender. And let's not forget — Mark Ballas will be bringing his A-game when he returns to the ballroom.

Buddy TV predicts that the final four will be Lindsey and Mark, Drew and Emma, Jordan and Lindsay, and Victoria and Val.

Of course, there's quite a buzz about this season's married couples (Nick and Peta, and Vanessa and Maks) but there's a good chance the four couples mentioned above may outperform the husband-wife teams. And talk about crazy — Peta didn't win with her partner Nick Viall ("The Bachelor") and he recently split with his fiancee, Vanesa Grimaldi.

The names Nick and Vanessa may not be all that lucky for Peta and Maks!

Who will go home first?

The first elimination won't take place until Week 2 (September 25). That means all 13 couples will have to put on a great show during Monday's "Dancing With The Stars" premiere. Their premiere-night scores from the three judges will be combined with votes from fans.

The couple with the lowest combined total will go home next week.

Buddy TV predicts that the following five couples have "no chance" of winning the Mirrorball trophy this season — Barbara and Keo, Derek and Sharna, Debbie and Alan, Vanessa and Maks, and Frankie and Witney.

Will one of these five celebs be the first to go? That's hard to predict until we see how well they do on Monday night. And fan votes are a bit deal, as well. Low scores from the judges don't necessarily mean the couple will go home if their fans support them with enough votes.

Watch "Dancing with the Stars" on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC starting Monday, September 18.
