  • Camille from Toronto, OhThis is the tune Meryl Davis and Maksim Chmerkovskiy danced the tango to on the 2014 season of Dancing With The Stars. I don't remember ever hearing the song before this show, yet it sounds like something I've always been familiar with, if that makes sense. This dance was the game-changer for Meryl & Maks, and put them on the path to claim the mirror ball trophy. During their practice session for this dance, Maks admits he's terrified and Meryl tells him to hold her hand. No one had ever seen a celebrity draw out the softer side of Maks. I loved everything about it. Meryl's costuming, hair and make-up were perfection, Maks looks super sharp and sizzling in all black. Ooo, and that chemistry. The dance is one of the best ever on the show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_gAnpYncZg
