Congratulations to Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy on their Engagement!

Best wishes to both of them!! I think they make a good couple and both seem very happy. And I love Peta’s hair in this picture. 🙂

ETA: Vogue here! You can read more on the wedding proposal at US Weekly. I am so so happy for them!!

The romantic moment went down at the end of a performance of Sway at the Olympia Theater in Miami, Fla. Sway stars the Chmerkovskiy brothers and Murgatroyd, as well as DWTS pro Tony Dovolani and DWTS alums Meryl Davis and Rumer Willis, who were partnered with Maks and Val, respectively, in their winning seasons.

“I’m in love with you and I want to be in love with you for the rest of my life,” Chmerkovskiy said, according to an eyewitness. “Will you marry me?”

She said 'yes' ? @petamurgatroyd

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

ETA2: And here is Gleb and Abita’s dance. Be sure to see the rest at the official SCD You Tube soon. Rank and let us know what you think of all the dances in comments.

ETA3: Thanks for all of your awesome comments and rankings on the show yesterday! What did you all think of the Results show today? I was so sad to see Helen and Aljaz go. It doesn’t seem right. I know they had a rough dance yesterday. Even still they were one of the best couples. But, shewwwww… I’m so thankful Gleb and Anita made it. So, below is the Lion King number from today. Is this not amazing or what?!!

Is Strictly Come Dancing Dropping Len Goodman? If You Don’t Want Him, We’ll Take Him!

Has Judge Len Goodman been axed from Strictly Come Dancing? I don’t know, but, The Mirror in the UK is reporting Len may be dropped from the judging panel to keep ratings high. WHA? Hey, SCD TPTB, if you don’t want Len, we’ll take him full time. If true (and I question this rumor being this is a tabloid source reporting it), this is age-ism at it’s finest. Let us know what you think…

Len Goodman may be dropped from the panel of Strictly Come Dancing , as producers plan ways to keep the show ahead of X Factor.

BBC bosses are responding to calls from fans who have questioned the relevance of the 71-year-old judge.

Len has presided over the panel since 2004 and also appeared on US version Dancing With The Stars for an impressive 20 seasons. He is due to return for the 22 season.

He recently tweeted: “Back on DWTS season 22. So nice people are welcoming me back. Be careful what you wish for.”

But now the veteran host may be told to waltz away from his UK job in an effort to continue beating X Factor in the ratings war.

One fan tweeted: “Remove sad old Len and replace with weekly guest judges like they do in the US version.”

While another simply asked: “What’s The Point Of Len Anymore?”

Len himself recently said who he would like to take over from him when the time comes.

“Anton would be perfect to take over from me if the time comes and I’m too dithery to carry on – or if they decide they’ve had enough of me,” he revealed.

Strictly have denied to comment on the latest claims.
