Dancing With The Stars

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Girlfriend Peta Murgatroyd Are “Co-Leaders” of the Team Dance

As Dancing With the Stars fans know, the All-Stars Week 5 performance shows (October 22 and October 23) feature two team dances, along with each couple doing a separate “guilty pleasures” dance. There are reports that the injured Melissa Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovolani won’t be able to dance at all, but there’s at least one couple that’s standing tall.

It’s Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy! In an interview with TVGuide, Peta revealed her team’s strategy for choreographing a routine to Psy’s “Gangnam Style.” “We actually sent the celebrities out for, like, half an hour,” she says, “just because it's easier when the pros work together.” Especially when one of those pros is your super-hot boyfriend.

“Maks and I took some of the leadership,” Peta continued, “and got some of the group stuff down, so I would say we're the co-leaders.” How cute!

The team is made up of four couples total: Gilles Marini and Peta, Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy, Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke, and Kirstie Alley and Maks. All the pros are incredibly close, and grew up together. But we’re not surprised that the incredibly strong duo of Peta and Maks took charge.

We’re actually still worried about Derek Hough’s team, which may have to perform without the charismatic Melissa and Tony. Whatever happens, it’s a live show, so anything’s possible!

Catch a new episode of Dancing With the Stars Season 15: All-Stars on Monday, October 22 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
