The on-screen chemistry between this season's top couples on Dancing with the Stars is evident.

But what about when the (moving) camera stops?

In this week's TV Guide Magazine, the publication takes fans behind the scenes with four of the show's most popular season eight stars: Cheryl Burke, Gilles Marini, Tony Dovolani and Melissa Rycroft.

Regarding her partner's energy, Burke said:

“When the music comes on in rehearsal, he brings it up 50 percent. But then in the live show, the audience feeds him even more energy and I change the way I dance. His adrenaline is off the charts.”

Meanwhile, Tony and Melissa had a trust issue to settle, following Rycroft's public heartbreak at the hands of Jason Mesnick.

“We didn’t talk about The Bachelor until after that first rehearsal,” Rycroft said. “But the trust was established very early on - and with dances like the Lindy Hop. Do you know how many times I fell, and he would have me by a pinky toe? I was nowhere near touching the ground.”

Who do you think will be crowned Dancing with the Stars champion next week?
