The cast list for the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars has finally been released — and with it, confirmation of Maksim Chmerkovskiy’s return. The pro will perform alongside skating star Meryl Davis, giving fans hope that he’ll finally manage to snag that elusive mirror ball trophy.
Last week, Facebook fans were super excited to learn that Maksim Chmerkovskiy would be cutting his Dancing With The Stars hiatus short. Many expressed a desire for the bad boy to be paired with a promising partner, so as to finally have a true shot at Derek Hough’s reign of terror. That wish has finally been fulfilled, as Maks is set to dance with Meryl Davis.
As you may recall, Meryl Davis captured the hearts of millions of Americans as she glided to gold at the 2014 Winter Olympics with longtime partner Charlie White. Interestingly enough, Charlie will also be featured on Dancing With The Stars, but with Sharna Burgess as a partner.
Although ice skaters have a long history of success on Dancing With The Stars, Meryl and Maks will still have to put in a lot of hard work. After all, they’re faced with the challenge of competing against Charlie and Sharna. As such, the new members of Team M&M were eager to begin the long rehearsal process, with Maks linking Twitter followers to a morning photo captioned, “Making every effort to stay awake and this ray of sunshine is helping! Everyone, please say hi to my @DancingABC season 18 partner, @meryldavis! I think I got a good one.”
Do you think Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Meryl Davis make a good match? How about Charlie White and Sharna Burgess? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
