Courtesy of E Online, below is Dancing With The Stars Valentin Chmerkovskiy and Laurie Hernandez first meeting.
Val Chmerkovskiy made a surprise visit on The Chew today to talk about Dancing With The Stars. Watch out, he says Maksim Chmerkovksiy and Amber Rose will be their biggest competition when asked. I think he better think a little more on that. What do you think? Thanks to Vin and Al for the heads up!
ETA: Below Val and Laurie talk to Access Hollywood in rehearsals…
Entertainment Tonight did a special segment on some of the Pros audition tapes. You can watch it below. See People as well as they have some tapes too. Thanks to Jennie for the heads up.
Below are a few dance clips from some of the first rehearsals for Dancing With The Stars Season 23. Let us know what you think and if they look good? Keep checking back as we may add more.

Val Chmerkovskiy Gives “First Look” Into Dancing With The Stars Season 23 On GMA, Names Some Pros And More
Val Chmerkovskiy was a guest on Good Morning America today to chat about Dancing With The Stars Season 23. He gives a “first look” to the new promo. He mentions how different pros are coming back. For now, they name Sharna Burgess, Witney Carson, Lindsay Arnold, Allison Holker, Artem Chigvinstev, Gleb Savchneko, and Sasha Farber as Pros who will be dancing (which we revealed in the Pro Watch post). He also mentioned how there will be kids dancing on the show (not sure if he means in performances or as a celeb?). He also said he’s still waiting to meet his partner. Note that there will be more Dancing With The Stars teasers and announcements released on Good Morning America in the next days leading up to the cast reveal next Tuesday. More below and thanks to @idolxfactor1 for recording.
ETA: Note that this article from ABC says there will be 13 Celebs this upcoming season as there has been in many Fall seasons in the past.

ETA2: A larger video of the promo. I can see Gleb and Keo a little better, but, I wish they’d show them all clearer and closer. Maybe they will in other promos later?
The Dancing With The Stars Season 23 Promo shoot began today. Below are some photos and videos starting to come out. Keep checking back as there may be more…

The East Valley Tribune published a new interview with Val and Maks Chmerkovksiy. They talk about their new tour. Also, Val mentions Dancing With The Stars and how he’s talked with his partner for Dancing With The Stars. Hmmmm….
Val and Maks have been inspired during their time on “Dancing,” which returns Monday, Sept. 12. It’s uncertain whether Maks will return, but Val slipped.
“I’m not going to say who, but I was talking with my ‘Dancing with the Stars’ partner yesterday,” Val said. “We started the new season.
“I told my partner that as magical as (‘Dancing’) has been to me, it doesn’t define who I am. It doesn’t define my journey or my story or my ambition or what I ultimately want to do with this platform.
“It isn’t my dream to go to Hollywood and become the next Fred Astaire.”
Instead, Maks and Val wanted to make their parents proud.
I’m shocked if he’s met his partner already. To read more, see the East Valley Tribune.
Heidi: Val “slipped”?? That wasn’t a slip, that was a brag. He’s so full of crap half the time that I don’t know what to think. Already talking to his partner and getting a leg up on the competition by establishing a relationship? Nice. Since they’re on tour, it’s probably only a phone conversation, but still. It’s not his dream to go to Hollywood?? Um…he works in Hollywood. He also claims to not understand why fans see this rivalry with the C-bros and Derek when he fans the flames every time he opens his mouth. I think he might be more obsessed with what Derek is doing than I am. 🙂 If DWTS didn’t define him, he wouldn’t place so much emphasis on winning. And the implication that going to Hollywood and making his parents proud are mutually exclusive is just idiotic. These boys are great dancers…but they should really stop talking.
To see an amazing Gallery of photos (85 total) from the “Our Way” tour, see IdolXfactor.com. Al was able to see the show in Michigan last night. He was a little late, but, he had a great time. Good job, Al!!!
