Maksim Chmerkovskiy is returning to his Dancing With the Stars stomping grounds tonight, and we couldn’t be more excited.

For the 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. Oh, and did we mention that he’s dancing with BFF Tony Dovolani and recently-departed pro Gleb Savchenko, too? We’re already swooning.

To prepare for his glorious return to our TVs, we’ve rounded up seven sexy GIFs of the former pro. Are you ready for a Maks attack? Check out his dance moves below, and then hit the comments with your excitement!
