Maks Chmerkovskiy was a guest on VH1′s Big Morning Buzz Live show With Carrie Keagan yesterday morning to talk about guest judging the Dancing With The Stars Semi-Finals. For those who missed it this is a link to a short clip. Not shown in the clip Max also gave Derek Hough big props too. He said Derek is a champion and says he always knows what to do to win during a finale.

Oh, be still my HEART (AND everything ELSE!!!!!)
OK . . .
Now that I've got THAT out of my system . . .
MHO is that even though Val is no longer in it to win it, and Maks IS good friends/business-partnered with Tony OFF the DWTS set, he will throw down and put his opinions out there, and the devil take anybody who doesn't care for what he has to say.
I mean, lest we forget, this IS the guy that got into it with the judges, BIG TIME, DURING a show, refused to apologize for doing so, and to this DAY, STILL hasn't apologized (AFAIK)!
Even after his own FATHER said he should apologize!!!
So, while I think it may NOT be out of the realm of possibility for him to --- perhaps --- temper HOW he makes some of his remarks (MAYBE!), I really can't and don't see him NOT shooting straight from the hip as a judge, either.
Plus, all else aside, love him or hate him, Maks has always struck me as being just as --- if not even MORE --- passionate about (ballroom) dancing and truly loving it, just as Len is. So, from that standpoint alone, I believe he'll be a consummate judging professional.
And, also, this just struck me . . .
Maybe this has been brought up elsewhere, if so, I've not seen it . . .
Has anybody forgotten that Maks and Karina were once ENGAGED????????
Sure, they seem to've gotten over and moved past all that, and appear to be friends, now. But if anybody wants to point out possible conflict of interest as regards Maks judging Val and Tony, then, realistically, I think Karina's name has to pop up, too.
I JUST saw the clip, and honestly, I DO think it was really cool that Maks himself actually brought up the aspect of hypocrisy on his part as being a judge, seeing as how he'd previously gotten into it with The Stooges, and HE was the one who'd started the fights!
Gotta LOVE a straight shooter!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm stocking UP on popcorn and lemonade!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like Len is really thinking of leaving. Hmm, not sure how I feel about this.
CA cant she leave as well? she really is the most annoying- espresso or no espresso
