Maksim Chmerkovskiy Returns To Dancing With The Stars

February 27, 2014 01:38 PM by Megan Thompson


Dancing With The Stars is welcoming Maksim Chmerkovskiy back to the ballroom.  And the ladies are pretty excited about it!  So what does Maksim have to say about his return to DWTS?

Fans are finally hearing some good news about season 18 of DWTS – Maks is coming back!  Can you picture his shirtless body now?  After 15 seasons on the show, Maksim took a break to pursue other opportunities.  Some of these “opportunities” included some acting gigs on daytime shows as well as some movie roles.

Maksim hasn’t addressed his return on his Twitter or Facebook page, but Us Weekly says it’s a done deal.  Maks was seen this past Wednesday meeting with the DWTS executive team.  “The deal was arranged,” an insider told Us Weekly.

This seems to be good news for die-hard DWTS fans, since the show has been making some major changes for the upcoming season.  The large live band and Brooke Burke-Charvet were fired to attract a younger audience.  Erin Andrews, Maks’ former dance partner, was given the co-hosting gig.  As for who Maks’ dance partner will be - we will have to wait until March 4th when the cast is announced on Good Morning America.

Are you excited to have Maksim Chmerkovskiy back in the ballroom?  Let us know what you think, leave a comment below.

    I love that Max is coming back, but bring back Harold Wheeler and his group. Instead of bringing the younger people to the show, you will lose some of us because of this music!!!!!!!!!

    I am sooooo happy Maks is coming back! It will be interesting because Erin Andrews is going to be cohosting.

    As for Harold Wheeler and the band, I thought they were excellent and will defintely miss them. But this new guy, Ray Chew has an impressive backround as a composser and band leader . I read that he worked on American Idol , a night at the Apollo and the 65th Emmy Awards. So I think it will be good also. Just have to wait and see.

    I am soo happy that Maks will be back, especially since Erin Andrews will be co hosting. Also looking forward to seeing the new band and their leader Ray Chew. I will miss Harold Wheeler but this new guy has worked on American Idol, a night at the Apollo and the 65th Emmys. Should be good.

    Didn’t watch last year because Maks was gone. Also because of judges – I feel they are unfair in there judging – they need replaced. Judges show favoritism to Derek. Will watch this season because I enjoy watching Maks. Hope he gets good partner.
