Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Returning to Dancing with the Stars as Guest Judge!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Maksim Chmerkovskiy is returning to the Dancing with the Stars ballroom as a guest judge for Monday's semifinals, according to reports.

Yes, he will be handing out the scores instead of complaining about them.

The DWTS pro will be three alongside regular judges Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli for the show's first-ever "plugged / unplugged" night.

Chmerkovskiy, who appeared on Broadway in "Forever Tango" and heads up six dance studios in the New York area, was long a fixture on DWTS.

He said he was always open to returning one day, so it was not a bitter parting of ways. "I never walked away, or said 'I'm never coming back,'" he said.

Simply, "I want to be able to capitalize. We all know why we're there. Everyone is doing something to better their lifestyle, to better their life. Period."

He's also bettering his life by dating Kate Upton. Amazing work, Maks.

Five couples remain in the popular ABC dance competition after some shocking Dancing With the Stars results over the past three or four weeks:

Leah Remini and Tony Dovolani, Amber Riley and Derek Hough, Bill Engvall and Emma Slater, Jack Osbourne and Cheryl Burke and Corbin Bleu and Karina Smirnoff. 

Who do you want to win? And are you happy Maks is back?

I will never watch dancing with the stars again after Elizabeth Berkley was eliminated. They should definitely change the voting system. All the lousy ones are left. Too bad. I did love the show.

How do you know he hasn't seen her in a month? Just because it's not in the tabloids means nothing except that they are discreet.
