Maksim Chmerkovskiy may not grace our TV screens on a weekly basis anymore on Dancing With the Stars, but at least we got to see him do what he does best -- dance! -- on General Hospital!  

Last week, Maks made his first appearance on the long-time soap with his bro Val Chmerkovskiy’s former DWTS partner Kelly Monaco, and the result was hot, hot, hot! (As if we’d expect anything less from our fave sexy pro.) General Hospital recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, and the soap marked the occasion with Maks’ on-screen debut.

It’s time for the annual Nurses Ball, and you know what that means: dancing! The DWTS pro is playing Anton Ivanov, and from his first episode, it looks like he’s one of the choreographers for the ball. Oh, and he has his eye on Kelly’s character Samantha Morgan.  We’re already anticipating the ballroom dance scene!

Back in January, General Hospital Executive Producer Frank Valentini told Access Hollywood they wanted to bring Dancing With the Stars pro Val back to GH, and maybe have him do a little dance with his All-Stars partner, Kelly Monaco. However, we were warned that Val might be too busy with DWTS to return to GH this spring, and that's the case. We're not crying for him, since he’s in a prime position to win Season 16 with Disney cutie Zendaya Coleman — and at least his brother was able to step in!

We knew we'd eventually find a silver lining to Maks taking off Season 16. Watch the episode below, and tell us what you think of Maks' debut!
