Maks and Meryl made Dancing With the Stars Season 18 magical. They sucked me in to every performance that they gave. I will never recover from their freestyle. I’m really grateful to them - they put their all into their dances. Maks was inspired by Meryl - he did his best choreography and dancing this season. This is a compilation of all their dances. Maks and Meryl fans - enjoy!

Interviews

Season 18 of Dancing With the Stars ended this week with the mirror-ball trophies going to ice-dancing Olympic gold medalist Meryl Davis and professional dancer Maksim (“Maks”) Chmerkovskiy. The two experienced a growing friendship throughout the season, causing many fans to speculate about a future romance. It all culminated in episode 6 when Maks was…

“Hand-holding is the one aspect that’s not been affected by the sexual revolution… . It’s less about sex than about a public demonstration about coupledom.”

ow long have I been wanting to write that headline?! Almost a year after

took home the season 18 Mirrorball trophy, the sizzling superstars are returning to the dance floor for

Dancing With the Stars: 10th Anniversary Special, which will air next Tuesday, April 28, on ABC.

Paparazzi photos have been running rampant online in the past week featuring quite a few past DWTS contestants either hanging out, rehearsing, or watching the show from the ballroom, and now you know why. The special will also take a look back at fan favorite moments from the past 20 seasons, and the show will kick off with the largest opening number ever, featuring 46 stars including the judges, hosts, past pros, and celeb alums.

Your favorite bromance—that would be Derek Hough and Mark Ballas—will also hit the dance floor (together!) for a “bromance” dance, while there will be a specially choreographed NFL football player ensemble performance as well. Who’s returning for that? Donald Driver, Hines Ward, Kurt Warner, Jacoby Jones, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, and Jerry Rice. They will perform what’s being called a “saucy” Latin Paso Doble with Karina Smirnoff, Emma Slater, and Anna Trebunskaya.

ABC has announced that nine Mirrorball winners will take the stage, including a dance duel between season 18 winners Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy and reigning championsAlfonso Ribeiro and Witney Carson

Additional performers include Katherine Jenkins, Chelsea Kane, Kristi Yamaguchi, Amy Purdy, Maria Menounos, Amber Riley, Melissa Rycroft, Kelly Monaco, and more. Then, finally, the night will come to a close with Patti LaBelle performing her iconic hit “Lady Marmalade” with Lil’ Kim and Amber Riley.

I’ll be in the audience for the 10th anniversary special and tonight ABC and BBC America are hosting the DWTS 10th Anniversary Party at Greystone Manor in Los Angeles—and I will be there with our video crew! Stay tuned for that video on Glamour.com tomorrow.

Dancing with The Stars: Dance Moms and The Celebrity Dance Duel.
This week I was pleased to see Abby Lee Miller as a guest judge on Dancing With the Stars. The Dance Moms star is one of my favorite tv villains even though I’m sure she doesn’t think she’s a villain. I think she’s great but people love to hate her. The girls from the Abby Lee Dance Company were in attendance as well. Erin Andrews interviewed the young girls and once again we were left longing for the days when Brooke Burke was the host. Mark Ballas did his best Justin Timberlake/Robin Thicke impression by performing his new single. I wasn’t aware Mark was a recording artist although I can’t say I’m surprised. This week DWTS premiered The Celebrity Dance Duel. This challenge is to see how the celebrities do while dancing without their professional partner. The ultimate celebrity pair in the challenge ended up being Amy Purdy and James Maslow. My favorite dance of the night was the tango performed by Danica and Val. Much to my dismay they ended up being the couple going home…. Despite pretty good scores for the night. So now my new favorite couple is Charlie White and Sharna Burgess. What’s their couple name? Charna? Sharlie? Whatever I’m on their bandwagon now,
