Amber Rose is one of the stars to beat this season on ‘DWTS!’ The VH1 talk show host released a video of her first rehearsal with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Aug. 31, and she proves she’s got the moves to win the mirror ball trophy. Click to WATCH!
If you weren’t already on Team Amber, you will be after watching this video. Amber, 32, and Maksim, 36, try their hand at the waltz in their first rehearsal. Amber is graceful and confident dancing with Maks to Alessia Cara’s “Here.” Amber’s got some serious rhythm! Their dance ends Maks dipping Amber low towards the floor. Afterwards, Maks gives Amber some constructive criticism, but she’s already leaps and bounds ahead of the game. Slay, Amber, slay!
Amber captioned the now-deleted Instagram video, “My first rehearsal with@maksimc! #muvaaintnoslacker #dwts.” Muva really wants that mirror ball trophy! The first few weeks of the competition are usually tough for the stars, as they get accustomed to dancing and practicing so much, but Amber’s making it all look effortless.
This is Maksim’s first DWTS season since leaving the show in season 18. He won that season with Olympic skater Meryl Davis, 29. Maybe he’ll get his second mirror ball trophy with Amber! It’s going to be a big year for Maks — he’s also expecting a baby with fiancee Peta Murgatroyd, 30!
Amber is going to have to bring her A-game every week. This season’s cast is pretty incredible. Olympic gymnast Laurie Hernandez, 16, is dancing with Maksim’s brother, Val, 30, and she’s already showing she’s got major moves too! Ryan Lochte, 32, Maureen McCormick, 60, Marilu Henner, 64, Terra Jole, 36, Gov. Rick Perry, 66, Jake T. Austin, 21, Vanilla Ice, 48, Babyface, 57, Calvin Johnson, 30, James Hinchcliffe, 29, and Jana Kramer, 32, round out the DWTS cast for season 23. The show premieres Sept. 12 on ABC.
