Maks Chmerkovskiy Writes On DWTS Week 4 And The Male Pro Number, Previews Next Dance With Amber Rose

Maks Chmerkovskiy has written a new blog at Entertainment Weekly. He writes of this past week’s dance with Amber. He also writes on the Male Pro number (loveddd!!!) and next week’s dance with Amber. More below and at the link.

On last night’s all-male pro group dance:

I have to give all credit to Mandy Moore and Will Loftus. Mandy’s an old friend, and her job on the show is to choreograph one dance a week. She’s a great choreographer and so brilliant, but I feel like she just doesn’t get enough credit. As dancers, we’re big advocates for putting people in the light that deserve it, so I wanted to make sure she gets credit!

Basically the concept was, “Let’s get five dudes to dance something sexy.” But without stripping or taking our shirts off. So we got the five of us, who are pretty like-minded. Artem is already Mr. Velvet himself. I was doing my best to stay kind of moody and sultry! (laughs) I think it turned out pretty great. You know we don’t want to waste air time on a sh—ty dance number, so there’s a lot of pressure to make these group dances good. But we get to entertain on our own terms, we have this platform and it’s an honor to have the opportunity to do stuff like this every week, on a live show. There’s nothing like it!

On sneak peaks for next week’s dance:

We’re doing the Samba, so that will be a big test because it’s very active. The theme is “The Celeb’s Most Memorable Year,” which is always a heart wrenching one. I might be dropping some tears. The performance is meant to celebrate an event in their lives, so I hope it’ll be as entertaining as this week was.

I feel like Amber and I are finally entering the competition – we were sort of like that couple in the back of the class. Up until now, we’ve been, like, “I’m not sure what I’m doing… Am I in the wrong class?” (laughs) And finally we’re like, “Ah, now we got this!”

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. :-)

PureDWTS Season 23 Week 4 – Media And Interviews

My, where do I start? 😯 What a treat it was to come home to watch two of the BEST Dancing With The Stars shows ever!! The choreography, the production, and the content was just outstanding. Sharna Burgess mentioned this week that getting ready for the show and everything the cast is doing is “harder than ever” this season. Well, the hard work is paying off as Dancing With The Stars “is better than ever” too in my opinion. The show this season is getting a huge A+ from me, but, more on that in a new Questionnaire coming tomorrow. So, be watching for it. 😉 For now, here are some interviews and media from Dancing With The Stars Week 4. Special Notes: Next week is “Most Memorable Year” Week. The show also returns to it’s one night format on Monday night (no show Tuesday).
