Broadway World interviewed Maks Chmerkovskiy. They ask him why he came back to Dancing With The Stars. He also answers questions on Amber Rose, his brother Val, expecting a baby with Peta Murgartroyd, wanting to do Broadway again in the future, and more.
What was it that made you decide to return to DANCING WITH THE STARS after taking a break for a few years?
Well I had just come back from doing the tour with my brother over the summer. The process of doing the tour put me in good shape, I felt stronger, I felt good, I felt ready to do stuff, and I was kind of sitting and thinking, what else would keep me in shape and give me the opportunity to flex a creative muscle. And to be honest with you, the next project that I’ll be doing did not conflict with the season, so I decided that I just wanted to have fun.
It’s a different production, a different show, although some elements are still the same, some of the funny things and hearing some strange judge’s comments and having to answer questions and talk about stuff, that all hasn’t changed. But the positivity in the room is different and I feel like Tuesday night’s performance with my brother Val, for example, was exactly the reason that I came back. (check out the show-stopping number below!) I came back for opportunities like that and doing something on the big stage with people you love, and my mom’s watching and grandma’s watching, nieces and nephews. What else can you want out of life, right?

Dancing With The Stars Week 3:
This week is going to be amazing. Good luck to all the couples!
James Hinchcliffee has some “behind the scenes” interviews from Dancing With The Stars Week three. You can view them at Sports Illustrated. It’s not as long as last week’s coverage, but, still fun. He makes a great reporter!
ETA: By the way, if interested in seeing some new photos of Sharna in Playboy, see this link.
I’m a little bummed out after this past Monday’s show and Tuesday’s result show, if I’m being honest. I’m not sure where that feeling is coming from. It just felt so freakin’ manipulated and REALITY Show-y if that makes any sense. From the stealth cameras recording every move of every contestant, to the attempts to elevate some couples at other couples’ expense – it’s all just tiring. Let these people dance and have a good time (and let us have a good time) and judge the actual dancing for god’s sake.
And now, this week, we have a brand new theme week tailor made for their designated winner of the season. Cirque week. Maybe it’ll turn into Shark week yet again. Joy. Anyway, according to Maks’ blog, they are tangoing to Zumanity and he doesn’t seem entirely pleased about it. I kinda feel his pain. Yer kinda screwed no matter which way you go.
ETA: Just Jared Jr has posted the Cirque du Soleil shows for each couple. They’ve also given dance information for the Results Show on Tuesday. More below…
On the results show on Tuesday (October 4), DNCE will perform their new single, “Body Moves,” and there will be an all-male dance number in which the male pros of “Dancing with the Stars” perform to the song “Ain’t No Sunshine.” In addition, Derek will choreograph and dance to a special number.
At the end of the night, the third elimination of the season, based on combined viewer and judges’ scores from October 3, will take place.
