Maksim Chmerkovskiy got to be the guest judge on Dancing With the Stars on Monday night and the fans tuned in to see how he would handle the scoring paddles. Definitely a pro dancer at heart, it was pretty obvious the dancer didn’t fit the judge’s chair.
“Thank you @DancingABC for the opportunity to speak my mind in the seat that allows for that!” tweeted Maksim Chmerkovskiy from his official Twitter account on Monday night after the show. The star definitely did speak his mind, but he kept glazing over the contestants.
While Maks knows how hard the professional dancers work on the show, it appeared that his judging moment was his focus to pound the pro dancers commitment to the fans. At the end of the show, when Maks had a chance to praise everyone, he stuck with pointing out how hard the dancers worked and hardly mention the contestants at all.
Maks is an exceptional dancer with amazing talent. Perhaps that’s why he belongs on the dance floor entertaining others instead of behind the table judging. And the fans won’t mind seeing him dancing again either!
Thank you @DancingABC for the opportunity to speak my mind in the seat that allows for that!
