There's a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming seventh season of Dancing With The Stars. Who will win, and who will go home defeated?
Hollyscoop caught up Cheryl Burke and Makisim Chmerkovskoiy from the hit TV show at the Nylon magazine 90210 launch party in Los Angeles last week, where they gave us their predictions about the new season.
Everyone is buzzing about teen sensation Cody Linley, and how he's considered the frontrunner. "I'm sure he's going to be great," said Cheryl. "He's young, he has a lot of energy. And he was Julianne as his partner."
Cheryl confessed how excited she was about being teamed up with Olympic Gold Medal Winning Sprinter Maurice Greene for the new season. "He's got lots of energy, he's young. He likes to have fun. So it's going to be a good time," gushed Cheryl.
She added, "Maurice is an athlete and athletes are so easy to train. But at the same time it's also hard for guys to learn to dance in heels. I put him in a Cuban heel and he's just feeling a little feminine a little," she joked. "But he'll get used to it."
Apparently all the professional dancers hope to be teamed up with athletes because "they're the best student you can have."
In regards to the Kim Kardashian vs. Lance Bass friendly feud that’s been brewing, Makisim said, "I hope they don't get into it, but I just wish all the celebrities lot of luck because they don't know what's coming."
