Dancing With The Stars

Dancing With the Stars 2013: Maksim Chmerkovskiy Back in the Ballroom! (PHOTO)

Prepare your bodies, Maksim Chmerkovskiy fans — the former Dancing With the Stars pro is back in the ballroom and better than ever.

On Monday’s Week 5 performance episode, Maks is making a triumphant return to mentor his brother, Val Chmerkovskiy (and his Season 16 standout partner, Zendaya), and the pair’s biggest competition, Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff, before dancing side-by-side with fellow former pro Anna Trebunskaya against a few of this season’s couples.

Though we unfortunately don’t have a video of him putting on his dancing shoes, we have the next best thing: a sexy Instagram photo of him, his best DWTS pal Tony Dovolani, and recently-departed pro Gleb Savchenko. And even better than Maks’ barely-there tank top is the fact that they’re all dancing together. Yep. In addition to his side-by-side with Anna and solo with Karina, he’s apparently doing a “very cool number” with his bros.

While the trio didn’t leak any more intel about their performance, we know it’s going to be unforgettable. At this rate, it might as well be the Maks hour next Monday — and we’re certainly not complaining!

Are you excited to see Maks back in action? Tell us below!
