Maksim Chmerkovskiy

I'm Coming Back To 'DWTS'!

11/14/2013 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Maksim Chmerkovskiy has really big disco balls ... 'cause he's not only returning to "Dancing With the Stars" -- but he's going back with a bigger job ... TMZ has learned.

According to our ballroom sources, Maksim will make a surprise appearance Monday on "DWTS' ... as a guest judge.

We're told the show's former dance pro will be sitting right next to Bruno, Len and Carrie Ann during the semi-final performances.

Maksim peaced out of 'DWTS' back in February. Since then he's been running several dance studios, and starring in "Forever Tango" on Broadway.

In other words, same s**t ... different pay.

I was very glad to see Maks back even if only as a judge on DWTS. He speaks his mind and for that he has been ridiculed. Maks is a very talented dancer as is his brother Val. I feel there is nothing wrong for any of the dancers to speak their opinions about how the judges vote. Clearly each judge has their own favorites of each season & their votes show who they like. Just look at how Len Goodman voted when Kendra Wilkinson was on season 11. I hope Maks comes back....Tom Bergeron needs his ass pinched!

What is going on with "Dancing with the Stars" this season? We keep getting hit with eliminations that we just don't see coming.

Does anybody here really think that Maksim was so rude and abused Meryl to try to make her be a better dancer or he is trying to make sure he wins this season since he has never wan the trophy .. He is looking after himself that's all. he needed to be given a professional dancer to start with so he can win!!!!! The judge was right It is his fault that he has never won because his choreographies
are not very impressive most of the time and his lack of commitment towards regular people is lacking!!!!.
