The casting announcement for Dancing With the Stars All-Stars is less than ten days away, so what better time to celebrate our favorite pros with a Fan-Favorite Pro battle?

UPDATE: This poll is now closed. Tristan, Maks, Val and Derek will advance to the next round.

Here’s how it will work: This week, fans can vote for their top eight pros (four men and four women) to compete in the fan-favorite battle. Next week (starting July 23), we’ll put two pros against each other to battle it out. Then, once fans have narrowed down the list to one female pro and one male pro, we’ll have an epic week-long battle, starting Monday, August 6. The winner will be crowned the Fan-Favorite DWTS Pro!

Ready? Let’s kick off the qualifying round with the male pros. Here are your choices.

Maksim Chmerkovskiy: He really needs no introduction.

Val Chmerkovskiy: Maks’ younger brother who stripped his way into our hearts.

Tristan MacManus: The sweet Irish dancer who took America by storm when he debuted last fall.

Tony Dovolani: The master of classic ballroom dance and the mega-watt smile.

Mark Ballas: The coolest pro around.

Derek Hough: The golden boy of the ballroom.

Louis van Amstel: The original pro and choreography expert.

Remember, since this is the qualifying round, you can vote for as many of the pros as you want. The four male pros with the most votes will be picked to go on to the next round. Voting ends on Friday, July 20 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Vote below!
